As the title says, after handling a few 1911s, I decided on the American Classic.The LGS owner was a 1911 fan, and allowed me to shoot his custom shop Kimber, along with a few others in the store. I handled a few similar price range 1911's, and the fit and finish of my 1911 seemed on par with their American competition. I put about 150 rounds of cheap target rounds(tulamo), and a few "nicer" rounds with no hang ups. So far I'm a real happy camper! Cant wait till I can get a little more time to put more rounds down range.
