Metro Arms

$300 isn't much, But I think I got a lot for my money. Reasonably accurate and stone reliable. 1200 rounds no problems. First 200 - 230 FMJ, next 1000 - 200 LSWC over 5.5 grains of Titegroup. It came with two ACT mags and I like those also. SERPA holster just a secure way to carry.[IMG][/IMG]

1914 Norwegian-1942 --- Colt Series 80 GM-1988
Kimber Custom Clack-1996 --- 1927 Sistema-Colt 1943
Metro Arms-2008 --- STI Spartan-2008
Almost enough...Nah!!!

$300 is a heck of a deal.

I paid $400 NIB for mine. I love that pistol.

I Dearly Love My American Classic!

If I recall right, mine was right at $320.00 total out the door last October, but oddly enough, yours is a lower serial number than mine. I've yet to have any problem with it, other than a severe lack of ammo these days. My grandson is so enamored of that pistol, I think he'd take it home and sleep with it if he could figure out a way to sneak in out of my house.

I'm sure the high priced 1911's out there that so many believe are the only way to go are fine firearms, but in my opinion, Metro makes a superior quality firearm, and I'm proud to own one. I've got some shooting buddies who called it a total POS, until they ran some rounds down range out of it, they've been looking high and low trying to find one these days.
