Having a good experience with my metro arms contender, I was planning on getting a metro arms amigo, I was fortunate enough to try one at the factory, the recoil was comparable to the fullsize 1911, and was small enough to fit in my front pocket. A colt is one of the guns which I also plan to purchase, but to be honest I see no difference in terms of quality, accuracy, reliability, finish between a colt government model compared to my metro arms contender, maybe I am not that experienced enough. I was able to examine a colt defender and metro arms amigo when I went to the Philippine gun show yesterday, I was surprised by the big difference in finish, the metro arms was a lot better. The price difference is very big, the colt defender cost 2,100 dollars compared to the metro arms amigo which cost 695 dollars. Having a stable medical practice I can afford to buy the colt defender, but since it is hard earned money I want to make sure that it is worth it. Do you guys think the quality of the colt defender is worth paying 2,100 dollars?
