Default My newest addition

American Classic Commander duo-tone 4.25" barrel. Deep blue frame and hard polished chrome finish. 35oz empty and feels great....specially after I put on my Hogue grips w/finger grooves! Mmmmmmmm cant wait to fire her off in a few days! Not a bad gun for $550 and this is my first commander length 1911. I think for the extra $100 it feels and looks way better than Rock Island....I will do a range report once I get out there

Stripped it down & took the slide apart, man they cover these guns in crappy brownish factory lube and it was EVERYWHERE. The firing pin channel was really covered.

Anyways, here she is

Nice addition!! Just one question. Is the grip rubber? I like the finger grooves in the grip.

I just bought a glock. There is definitely some things I hate about it. (Trigger, slide release, guide rod, the way you take it appart) but that's just me. I would trust it as far as reliability. But that's about as far as I go with it. Maybe after I do some work to it I will fell better about it.

But hey I love some 1911's and that isn't a bad one for the price. I might pick one up.

Yessir I installed black rubber Hogue grips on it.
Blends perfectly with the deep blue finish (it actually looks black). Yeah I wont get too ahead of myself until I shoot it, but the fit and finish and incredible for the price. Came with one black mac....looks like Mec Gar and it fits like a glove.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have an American Classic that I love to shoot. It's accurate and after more than 500 rounds through it it still has never misfired or jammed. I personally think they are extremely under rated.
