Beautiful gun, excellent fit and finish. The handles are not exactly like shown, but pretty close - I think they don\'t go out of their way to use uniform hardwood, which means there is some subtle color variations that really have a nice aesthetic impact. There isn\'t a good reason for it not to include an extra magazine or two, but at this price point I\'m certainly not complaining. It shoots very well and the sights appear well aligned out of the box. I\'ve encountered only two very minor issues: 1. The plunger that holds the takedown pin in place extends slightly too far when the gun is stripped - which means that it needs to be depressed slightly in order to replace the takedown. It\'s kind of hard to do without scratching the gun - I use the threaded end of a cleaning rod. Maybe the plunger spring will relax over time, or I\'ll remove it and clip a little off if it becomes really irritating. 2. The magazine is causing some type of friction on the 7th and 8th round loaded. So when you load the last two rounds, for some reason, they move \"roughly\" into the mag. Not sure how best to explain that or where the friction point is, but it\'s only the last two, when spring tension is highest. I knew right at the moment of loading that I would have failure to feed issues occasionally, and I was right. I\'m hoping a combination of use and wear on the spring will smooth things out. I also ordered a wilson combat mag, which will almost certainly fix the issue for good.

Very nice pistol. By far the nicest 1911 you can get for under $600. Very accurate and good fit and finish. Trigger is very crisp and breaks at 3 lbs. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Shipping was very fast. Picked up pistol three days after ordering. I would recommend this pistol to anybody.

Just got my gun, I have to say it is extremely beautiful. My FFL called me and said it was one of the best 1911 he has seen. When I opened the box I was bummed to find out it only came with 1 mag. It came in a hard case and inside a plastic bag. When I took it out the bag it had so much oil and grease on it. I cleaned it really good and re oiled it lightly. Then I took it to the range and put about 200 rounds of tulamo 230 grain ammo through it, and had no FTF, FTE, or stove pipes, it shot very good with the cheap ammo. I will put more ammo through it this weekend. For the money you absolutely cannot pass this up. I purchased some cheap stainless steel mags on ebay that worked just fine. I didn't want to spend more on other mags since I heard even the high dollar ones gave people problems. It did have some scuff marks from the slide lock lever and some pieces felt kind of rough like it was not sanded down properly, but nothing a little lapping can't solve. Thanks to Buds for a very easy transaction and for a great deal on a great gun. I will definitely get my next gun from these guys.

Classic is what this gun is. I can not believe the quality that this gun brings for such a reasonable price. Great fit and finish, exceptional trigger, in fact it has the best trigger of all my handguns. Feels great in the hands and spot on accuracy right out of the box. I have run about 400 rounds through it, no FTF or FTE did have 2 FTB. Nothing that is not out of the ordinary for any 1911. The grips are different than as pictured on Buds, which is an older stock photo, go to Bersa and Download the catalog to see new grip style which in MHO is much improved. If you are sitting on the fence on this one or any MetroArms, I would say take the plunge this is a high quality firearm. The ACT mag works great with 230g hardball, in fact I bought 3 Chip MCcormick Power Mags and had to return them due to not releasing the slide and not locking the slide back. I bought 2 more ACT Mags and all 3 function flawlessly. I will buy more MetroArms in the future. My experience has been that Eagle Imports only offers high quality guns at a great price, such as Bersa which is another outstanding line of firearms., Also be sure to visit the MetroArms web page as they frequently have rebates listed. Bud's kept their end of the deal and delivered on time and were very professional the one time I called them on a shipping update. Very happy with the price and the service!

Flawless function after 200 rds, even with 20rds of federal hst! The fit and finish are very nice but not flawless, brushed chrome underneath the barrel is nice except one spot where they must have polished out the brushed chrome and it shines a little bit, thats just nit picking though. I absolutely love this gun. However I almost sent it in for a warranty repair because I could not break down the gun to clean! After toying around with the gun I realized the grips it came with were not for a 1911 with extended slide release. After removing the grip panel on the takedown side it disassembled with ease! Love this gun, looks every bit as good as a kimber or any higher end 1911. It is my first 1911 and probably not my last, since we all know how addictive guns can be!
