As a veteran of the US Army, and a police detective from years ago..I carried a 1911 on duty working surveillance for 9 years. This American Classic, I was dubious about but liked the price and several told me to try it. It is great. Not a single problem and have put through about 400 rounds. I carry it as one of two carry guns with no issues. It is dependable, and the groupings are fine. I am still amazed at the lower cost, but the workmanship appears fine to me. I will probably purchase another in a shorter barrel eventually. Try it I think it is a great gun. Good luck.
