Eagle Imports is pleased to announce the addition of several new Metro Arms 1911s to their catalog for 2013. They compliment their existing line-up of American Classic 1911s with both competition and carry 1911s in the new MAC series.
First up is the MAC 1911 Classic, a full-size 1911 that’s designed for competition out of the box. It’s based on a traditional 1911A1 chassis with a nice spread of upgrades above the frame.
It features a match-grade bushingless, ramped bull barrel, fully-adjustable Bomar-style sights with a front fiber optic insert and front and rear slide serrations. It has a standard 5-inch barrel.
That isn’t to say it’s all in the top half. The grip has frontstrap checkering and includes a lowered and flared ejection port, a skeletonized hammer and trigger, an ambidextrous manual safety and an extended beavertail safety with a memory button.
The next pistol is the MAC 1911 Bullseye, a 6-inch 1911 that’s appropriately named, as it’s clearly a target pistol. Apart from the extended slide and barrel, the Bullseye is no different from the MAC 1911 Classic, featuring the same bull barrel, sights, serrations, checkering, controls and safeties.
Last is the MAC 1911 Bobcut. Another directly-named pistol, the Bobcut is Metro Arms’ bobtailed Officer-length 1911.
Built on a nearly full-size frame, the Bobcut maintains a capacity of 8+1 rounds of .45 ACP. It also has a slightly flared and lowered ejection port, grip checkering, a skeletonized hammer and trigger, an ambidextrous thumb safety and extended, enhanced beavertail safety.
To help keep the weight down, the Bobcut uses a traditional 1911 barrel and bushing, and it comes with Novak-type adjustable sights, both making it more appropriate for everyday-carry.
All MAC 1911s are made from 4140 hammer-forged steel, have carved hardwood grips and are available with your choice of classic blue or hard chrome finishes.
The suggested retail prices for these guns aren’t bad, either. The Classic’s MSRPs are $1,038 and $1,112, the Bullseye’s are $1,204 and $1,279 and the Bobcut’s $902 and $978 for blue and hard chrome finishes, respectively.
Metro Arms is a preeminent firearms manufacture; they’re not just yet another inexpensive company working out of the Philippines. They make premium guns for collection, competition and self-defense.
