Re: American Classic?
thanks jacksonco, I did get it for my wife, she wants me to gut it and rebuild it to her specs. I must say after breaking it down i was pretty impressed with the quality, fit, and finish of the internal workings. The only thing i found i didnt like about the pistol was the hammer and sear engagement. trigger pull was in the 6 or 7 lb. range and the half-cock notch was not as positive as a more pricey specimen. Overall i would rate it in the RIA, Taurus, and base model springfield category as far as value and quality are concerned, and to further pinpoint its rank in my opinion i would put it just above the RIA and just below the taurus. Its a very well built entry level 1911, ripe for beginner 1911 owners, and provides a decent platform for a semi custom pistol... Id say a good buy for 400 or less. as you can get RIA new in box in my area for about the same, and a taurus is jut a hundred bucks more. I snagged this one for about 300 tax n all...
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
