    ang galing talaga ng pinoy sir. i think yung sam is worth more than its value. i think maka compete sya against imported guns. :) sabi nga ng gun smith na kakilala ko if gusto ko raw parang mag pagawa ng baril yung frame ng s.a.m. gamitin ko para affordable yet matibay. :)

    The metal of the first SAMs that came out were kinda soft, especially with the hammer, sear and slide stop. They have improved their products so much that even their barrels have become accurate.

    They've also invested a lot in CNC technology.

    Hi :)

    JM2Pesos,
    If the rollmark is the old "S.A.M.", stay faaaaaaar away.
    If the rollmark is the newer "SHOOTERS", it's decent for
    the use you described..

    The frame and internals are investment cast 4140 steel,
    heat treated for hardness. Still, the sear, disconnector,
    extractor, link and a few other internals maybe ought to
    be replaced with more durable 3rd party parts (the same
    could be said of many foreign brands of 1911!)

    The slide and barrel are machined from 4140 square and round
    bar stock, although it is unclear if these were of rolled,
    extruded or forged origin. Decent machining and fit naman.

    Kung maganda naman ang calidad, tangkilikin ang gawang Pinoy!
    :thumbsup:

    I have a 1911 rollmarked as "Shooters" and not "S.A.M.". Sir Horge is right, I have replaced the sear for two times na..other parts remained intact.. :)

    Buy Filipino is OK. Kaya Buy Armscor. Better yet, buy them once they improve on their warranty (they give out better warranties abroad). Shooters? maybe in 5 more years, I'll give another look.

    hi vungom, welcome to BoG's!
    kalimitan suggestions ng BoG's brods natin ay internal parts ang kailangan palitan to branded or premium parts like springs, trigger set & barrel. tapus rear & front sight naman kung saan ka comfortable. and a good gunsmith to make kalikut your boomer & fit those things.

    but for me, since di ko pa naman ginagamit sa laro boomer ko, ito lang muna ang mga mods & upgrades na pinagawa ko last January 07.

    1. Rear sight change to SAM Low-Pro(kimber look alike).
    2. Front sight change to STI fiber optic sight.:)thumbsup:ka partner ng SAM Low-pro, ganda ng hits!)
    3. SAM MSH w/ built in magwell(1pc talaga walang pin kaya di magalaw)
    4. Matte hardchromed SAM frame
    5. Black chromed SAM slide w/ sides polished
    6. Polished hardchromed SAM barrel
    7. STI sear spring
    8. 19# ISMI main spring
    9. Adjusted/tweaked SAM recoil & mag release button springs
    10. Armscor ambi-thumb safety(kasi lefty ako)

    the rest are prep SAM stock parts like hammer,sear,dis-connector,trigger & FP/FP spring & pins.
    tagal ko nga nag-antay doon sa factory habang ginagawa yung mods ng boomer ko. :supergrin:

    next vacation naman, premium trigger set, good grips tsaka V6 or V8 porting siguro ng barrel/slide para mabawasan recoil.;) ;)

    ito nga pala some pix ng cheap boomer ko.

    hi charlie, busy sa site dre for the past few weeks. :supergrin:
    madami na nadagdag diyan sa boomer ko like the white panel grips ni melbu, 3-hole trigger ni paul, ambi-safety ni saki(pinagawan ko pa ng extended pin)
    kaso nga lang di ko na nakuhanan ng pix kasi nagluko ang digi-cam tsaka nasira connection namin sa globe broadbond for almost a month noong nasa bakasyon ako.:upeyes:
    sa sunod uli na bakasyon me balak na naman ako ipagawa diyan.
    tsaka baka makabili nalang muna ng shootie from SAM yung parang M16 style na nasa mags yung 6-shot shells. sayang di ko nakuhanan ng pix noong nasa factory ako ng SAM.:sad:

    Ayos na ayos yan, ako naman sana sana inshalla nga kumbaga isang Mahaba at malupeet na knife. Kaya raket lang ng raket para may pambili ng toys for the big boys.
