    Anyone own one of these? What was your experience with quality and reliability?

    I’m looking at the Black Chrome model specifically, if it matters.

    A while back I read several reviews of the American Classic. It was well received for its price point by the reviewers and I understood it to be reliable, reasonably accurate and well appointed for the price point. I haven’t read anything in several years.

    They’ve always been good guns although at the prices now I wouldn’t bother

    Yeah, after I posted this, I was looking at the prices and got turned off pretty quickly. People really are panic buying.

    I have the first one sold in the US. Looks great, shoots straight and looks just fine. $350 out the door and my second 1911.

    They are basically a nicer finished Armscor 1911.

    That’s my understanding too. I probably should have tried a 38 Super.
