SHOT 2013 Preview: Metro Arms SPS Pantera .45

Metro Arms SPS Pantera .45 ACP Pistol

Metro Arms is not a stranger to our gun-owning friends on the other side of the ocean, but is relatively new to the U.S. market. Eagle Imports, the exclusive distributor of the Metro Arms family of products, now carries the SPS Pantera performance pistol. SPS pistols display all the attention to detail, precision metal-to-metal fit, high tolerances and quality craftsmanship one would expect in a custom pistol. About the only thing you wouldn’t expect is the affordable price tag.

The SPS Pantera pistol is an extremely attractive carry gun as well as IPSC Standard or Open Competition ready. The .45 ACP single-action, semi-auto pistol is built on a 4140 steel frame with a 4140 hammer-forged steel slide with wide front and rear serrations. Finished in a matte black chrome the SPS Pantera is an attention-getter on the range for looks and accuracy. The fully-adjustable Bomar-type rear sight and fiber optic dovetailed front sight make acquiring you sight picture second nature. The Pantera is perfectly balanced in the hand for quick and repeatable target acquisition and shot-after-shot accuracy.
