The American Classic II 1911 From Metro Arms: Where Beauty Meets Form and Function

   05.08.14

Eagle Imports, Inc., the exclusive distributor of Metro Arms, Bersa and Comanche firearms products, believes that price should not dictate pistol quality. Case in point: the Metro Arms American Classic II 1911 style pistol, designed to be accurate right out of the box, yet featuring details and styling only found on high priced pistols.

The American Classic II is a single-action, 1911 style pistol available in both .45 ACP and 9mm. Constructed of 4140 alloy steel, it is tougher than conventional carbon steels and more resistant to corrosion. Instead of a standard trigger, Metro Arms smoothly finishes a combat trigger to eliminate any hard edges. The skeletonized combat hammer provides fast lock time and allows for easy slide/hammer clearance.

Although the American Classic II will make a fine carry pistol, it was designed with competition looks and function with an extended slide stop, flared ejection port, beavertail grip safety, an extended thumb safety and a throated forged steel barrel. The sights include a dovetail front sight and a Novak-style rear sight for snag-free holstering. Diamond cut, checkered hard wood grips and front and rear slide serrations provide a positive grip whether in competition or self-defense.

The Metro Arms American Classic II 1911 style pistol is available in three finishes:  a deep blue, a hard chrome finish and a duo-tone with deep blue frame and hard chrome slide. MSRP starts at $609.00.
