I acquired a Commander sized Stainless version and thought I would provide some initial impressions and seek some input from others. The fit is excellent. With the slide racked back and locked back there is only a slight amount of play forward and backward and the normal side play which should be expected. The frame and slide are forged steel not cast. My Colts, Paras, Ruger, Springfields and S&Ws all have much more play. With the slide forward the barrel seats solidly and I can't detect any up and down or sideways play when I apply pressure to the slide or barrel. In general the finish is well polished and free of defects. The internal milling marks are minimal and as good or better than some custom guns. The trigger is very nice with minimal take up and a nice crisp let go. The reset is short and positive. There is an over travel screw and it was set just right from the factory. Another design feature I like is that it is a 70 series gun. Trigger pull from the factory is 4.5 pounds. Not bad for the price. Now, how does it shoot. Very nicely, no FTF, FTFire or FTE in 499 rounds of mixed ammo. Weight is a little heavy but this reduces recoil. I like this gun especially for what I paid for it. Now for the clincher, the price was $550. I'm amazed that Metro Arms can make a gun this nice for that price. Anyone else have experience with them???
