Thats VERY promising news, thanks for posting that Rhyno. Ive looked into Metro Arms for a while and this model has nothing but stellar remarks. Now, its not made of the finest steel on the planet and small things bother me like the grip safety spring is a bit on the weak side....and there is a stupid little design within the combat hammer....but dang it I love this little pistol and think this model stands proud among its competitors who charge double what this was!

My Government Model is around 1000 round mark and hasn't had one problem. It has tolerated me feeding it all kinds of ammo, including a box or two of TulAmmo and my using mags from the $6 GI mags up to Wilson Combat mag. Instead, it rewards me by keeping most of the bullets in the center of the target.

ooohhhh yeah, this thing is sweet AND accurate.
put 100 rounds of Remington UMC 230gr FMJ through it and not only did it feed every round with perfection.....the recoil on this thing was minimal.....partly due to the Hogue rubber grips which seemed to help absorb some recoil and keep a firm grip, Was hitting 5-6" groups from 18 yards which is accurate for me. What a beauty, love this gun already!

You won't mind if I am not surprised.

It looks like you're hooked now. It's so cool to read your report!

Today I saw finger groove grips made of wood, it was really cool.

Not personally familiar with the brand, but if she shoots as good as she looks you are going to be one happy camper! Sweeeet!

the MetroArms American Classic 19111's are like the RIA 1911's. very good pistols for the amount of money spent. they truly are one of the better values in relation the quality of the gun.

SS215, very nice looking pistol! enjoy it.

i am on my second AC 1911. i enjoyed the first one and hated to part with it, but i did none the less.

I have a question about the RIA's, this RIA is not the same one from here in America, this one makes their guns in the Philippines correct?

RIA (Rock Island Armory) is manufactured by Armscor in the Philippines.

American Classic is manufactured by MetroArms, also in the Philippines.

They are separate companies from the same country.
