    I'm curious but is it just ARMSCOR making a bunch of guns with different names for the various American brands? Or there are more than one Filipino arms manufacturer?

    Armscor, Shooters Arms Mfg (S.A.M.), Metro Arms are the only 3 I know of that produce 1911 models.

    My LGS said they all come out of the same factory, is this true?

    Not that I'm aware of, but who knows. :dunno:

    I will say that the three of them are quite a bit different from one another.

    I heard about a new bobtailed model being introduced, but I wasn't sure of the price. If its that cheap, it will certainly sell very well.

    It looks good. That chainlink pattern seems well done. My Firestorm DLX has a decent trigger, so this model should be a winner at that price.

    There really aren't any lower priced bobtailed 1911s on the market.

    That Bobtail looks nice, any idea when they will hit the market?

    I imagine for this market, they will be marked "American Classic".

    I would rather the gun be in a blued version but it might work out as it will be my CC if it is reliable. I like SS better as sweat causes lots of rust issues. Will get rid of that hammer though.

    30 years ago I had a Squires Bingham .22. It was a S&W Model 17 knock off. Actually it was pretty well built and totally reliable.

    Yeah, my Firestorm has the same trigger and hammer, though you can't see the hammer in this pic.

    My AC II was built before they put that MA in the hammer.
