I would not waste my money on an AMT Skipper, Captain or Admiral. Never been impressed with the reliability or lack therof.

Skip the Skipper. If AMT ever made a gun that wasn't a piece of crap, I never heard about it.

I had 2 AMT Hardballers, which is the full size 1911 they made. I was stupid enough
to buy, not one, but 2 of those things. The litany of concerns with these guns aren't
worth the effort.

The only good thing I can say is, when I experimented with them in the
late seventies and again in the early eighties they were the only stainless 1911 you
could buy. There were few 1911s in those days. I can see no excuse to buy one these days.

Save your money to buy a Springfield or Kimber.
