I have two of them. My Government Model has over 2500 rounds in the past 18 months and has shown 100% reliability. This pistol shoots any kind of ammo and has taken cheap $6 magazines up to MecGar, CMC and Wilson Combat mags. Also, this 1911 is a cinsistent shooter making it easy to get accurate shots.
The other one I have is the 9MM Commander with around 400 rounds since I bought it in May this year. Although the original slide stop was slightly out of spec, Eagle Imports quickly replaced it. That done, this 1911 has been every bit as reliable, consistent and accurate.
The fit and finish on both of my American Classics are excellent, the slide on both guns is even tighter than my Colt.
I don't know if you could buy a better pistol than the MetroArms American Classics, just a more expensive one.
