Bersa 8 + 1 Round 45ACP Single Action American Classic w/Blu [AC45G2]

Date Added: Saturday 05 June, 2010
I have spent the better part of 6 months reading reviews and talking with different people about 1911's in the lower price bracket. Those made in the Philippians always seem to rise to the top in the discussions. This pistol is actually made by Metro Firearms for Bersa and now American Classic.
I placed mine on layaway with Bud's Gun Shop in February and finished paying it off in March. Bud's shipped the pistol in a very timely fashion to my FFl. When I went to pick it up the FFL dealer asked what I had paid for the pistol because he didn't believe what the enclosed receipt said. He was very impressed with the "tightness" of the pistol. I was elated until I got home and started to field strip it to clean out the packing grease. After I moved the barrel busing over to release the cap and spring I noticed that the back of the bushing has scratched to end of the slide up. Then after I pushed out the slide stop I noticed that the back of the slide stop also had scratched up the slide. After disassembling the pistol the rest of the way I looked at the feed ramp on the frame and noticed that it was nowhere near smooth. It was full of ripples like an overused dirt road. I had the pistol for only 90 minutes and it was all scratched up and the feeding ramp looked like you know what.
I called the warranty center in Colorado and the gentleman told me that the scratches were perfectly normal and that the waves in the feed ramp were also of no concern as the bullets never touch the frame portion of the feed ramps. That if I choose to send it to them to be looked at that it probably would not be covered by warranty (cosmetics are NOT covered) and I would be out shipping charges both ways. This is no way to start off a love affair with a new pistol. I was ticked off to say the least. I have waited this long to leave a review so I could cool off some.
I may just dump off this P.O.S. before anything else goes wrong with it. Too bad there isn't a "lemon" law with firearms! Save your money and get something better. The money you save by buying this pistol will spent fixing the problems that they come with.
