i too bought one last year, and have had zero problems with mine yet. mine is the American Classic II in full size. shoots everything fed through it, with no issues. mine was bought used, in near perfect condition. i have shot about 400-500 rounds through it and works as well with jhp as it does with fmj bullets. i gave $450 for mine, if i remember correctly. mine is a joy to shoot and even my dad likes shooting it as well. IMO, if it's in very good condition, $400 is a good price. the only shortcoming i have had an issue with, are the magazines, as they could be better. but i have not found this to be that much a problem as most of us will want more magazines anyways.

Problems seem to be centered around the commander and officer size. Full size models have much better reviews. Here is a very good review on the commander: http://www.shootingreviews.com/american-classic-commander-review/

Default American Classic II

I love mine! The only round that would not feed the 8th (top) round in the
mag was 165 grain HP's with a large hole and sharp edge. Wilson Combat ETM mag cured that. 230 grain HP's and FMJ's 100% reliable with stock ACT mag. Very tight, very accurate. Excellent blue finish. $482 out the door at AS. I have owned several high end 1911's and I tell you, I am impressed with this
gun. Only thing I might improve is the trigger pull.

you could have a good gunsmith go into it and do a trigger job, smooth up all the surfaces and reduce the spring rate a little. i too might consider doing this in the future to mine, but as it does shoot pretty good as is, it's not really high on the priorty list yet.
