American classic commander

I just picked up a 1911 American classic commander with 2 mags a case and 100 rds for a little over 500 bucks. I hyave never had a 1911 before but I always thought they we neat this buy was just a spur of the moment thing. The guns seems well made (havent shot it yet) after getting it i read some reviews online some say its good other bad so reviews are mixed. The only problem i noticed is the 8 round ACT-mag doesnt even feed into the gun. The 7 round colt mag i got feeds fine. Anyway the point of this post was i was hoping for some tips or suggestions from anyone with past experiances with this gun or 1911s in general.

i owned one, liked it alot, handled ball ammo fine, but with HP it worked better with 7 rounds in the mag, but 1911 mags can be finicky anyway. Any way, being the Commander you have a slightly shorter barrel but sporterized, nice gun, enjoy it. i would buy another if I had a c hance.

American Classic Commander?

I've had mine for just over a year. The "stock" magazines did not function well.
I replaced them with "Chip McCormicks" and it will eat everything I feed it, ball or HP. It has become my primary carry pistol. There is something about an all steel pistol that is comforting for an old man.
If you're gonna get old you better be tough;Gettin' old ain't for sissies!!
