Congrats! Those are nice.
Jetguns has these for 434 shipped. Seems to be an excellent gun for the money - For those who have both the Metro Arms and the RIA tactical, what would be your preference between the two?
Also, what does the maker/import stamp read on the right side of the pistol at the top of the grip? Just curious.
It says "MetroArms Corp Manila Phils.

I bought the exact same gun this morning, Test fired by the factory 6/16/2010
After a quick cleaning I went from the gunshop to my range. I fired two magazines fairly rapidly to check functiob ing and was rewarded with 8 shots in an inch and a half at 8 yards, Shoots to point of aim, don't need to touch the sights. Then I had three students each shoot 16 rounds (none had shot handguns prior to today) all 16 rounds each were within 4 to 5 inch groups.
The trigger breaks at just over 5 pounds very little creep or over travel.
My other 1911 is a $1700.00 custom job, this one I paid $429.95 for.
PS Mine came in a nice hard plastic case, no cardboard! But only one magazine, bought 4 more Kimber 8 round mags for $19.95 each.
Nice 1911. I like the grips and would leave them on. It will not be your last I would wager.
I just picked one up, I traded a G23 gen 3 that I put about 6000 rounds through. I was getting some scuff marks it was getting wore out. So I cleaned it up and was going to trade it for a 19, but I saw this bad boy and right then I knew I was walking out the door with it in hand, I gave fifty dollars boot for it, three mags and a box of fmj.
I got some wrap around grips for it sweet setup.
LMAO!! You weren't wearing that Glock out! Nuts!
Ummm...I have a Metro ACII. It's a good gun but I wouldn't have given a G23 plus $50 for it.
Also those grips are hideous. Are you trolling?
Wearing it out? How exactly? My Gen 3 G23 has between 50 and 75K rounds through it and runs like a champ and looks almost brand new.
I got three extra mags and a box of ammo to go with it. It came with 2 already. The fifty dollar was because the mags I got with were 21 dollars apiece, they're Chip McCormick, power 10 mags. So yeah, and it was wore out it was made in the 90's and the I bought it from my brother. He put thousands of rounds through it. He never cleaned it. I still got a couple Glocks so I ain't missing it... And not those grips are not ugly I like them they reduce recoil.
My brother got it from a police trade in. He got bored it, so I bought it from him. He shot it almost everyday fifty rounds everyday. I noticed some problems, with it the slide on the bottom, of the slide it had chips in the metal, a fact that I did not tell the shop. The sights where loose, on the front. It was put through hell. I only bought it from my brother because he was asking 200 for it, I got 400 for it in the trade.
Dude c'mon! It's gun traders like you who make me leery of used guns. I cain't believe you got on GT and talked about how you scammed a gun shop. Some poor noob will prolly end up with a less than healthy Glock now.
You deserve those hideous grips!
