About the Manufacturer:
Manila based Metro Arms Corporation (MAC) is one of three major 1911 pistol manufacturers and exporters in the Philippines. The company was organized and established in late 2011 by Hector Rodriguez, a competitive shooter during the 1990s using pistols in the 1911 platform. Over the past years, the company invested heavily on engineering innovations and state-of-the-art production equipment, and is currently the exclusive manufacturing partner of brands like Firestorm and American Classic sold in the United States, and S.P.S. of Spain marketed in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
About the Cartridge:
This cartridge was developed by John Browning and was adopted by the United States Ordnance Department along with the Colt-Browning automatic pistol in 1911. It has also been made the official military handgun chambering by several other governments, notably Argentina, Mexico and Norway. The 45 Automatic is the most powerful military handgun cartridge in use today. This is a heavy and powerful sub-sonic round. Although its muzzle energy can exceed 400 ft-lbs, its velocity and bullet weight creates a steep trajectory curve that limits its effective range to self-defense distances.
