Very nice looking 1911... But I've never heard of Metro Arms? What do you know about them?

Metro is a phillipine gun maker that I believe belongs to armscor. Like RIA.

To be honest man i went to the store held it and fell in love with it. It is a smooth feeling gun and everything fits together very well. I have not shot it yet but so far it feels like its gunna be a good gun. I will update after i fire it tomorrow or monday. All of the reviews say that it is a fantastic firearm.

Looks nice.

I am confused because so many people call armscor phillipine. and I am sure its true, but what ever happend to Armscor of South Africa?
They built tons of quality rifles and pistols back in the day for the South african armed forces and civilans too, are they still selling?

I do not know about all that im trying to learn about it. There is alot of info on all that you will have to let jstrong tell you about it. I do know that so far this gun is sweet and well machined.

MetroArms is the company that makes the American Classic line of 1911's. they are made in the Phillipines just like the Armscor RIA 1911's. they are two different companies. they both just happen to be in the Phillipines.
