Solid and well made
Review by usrifle on 8/15/14

Great Pistols for the money. All steel, excellent ergonomics. I purchased the 98DA first and I liked it so much I bought the DAC too.
The only mods were to trim the right side Grip panel a bit where it's blocked at the back of the panel for comfort, and to roll the magwell lips and smooth the well a bit an inch in.
They eat anything, reloads, full power etc and are quite accurate. I'm a die hard 1911 guy, and not a 9MM guy, but these are great pistols.
One would expect to have to do some gunsmithing to a firearm at this price point.

I purchased two of the Arcus 9mm DAC firearms. I took both of these firearms to my neighbors house and loaded them up. I was trying to be gentle with them and fired in bursts of 5 shots. At one point I disassembled both weapons to show my neighbor how well made they were. Upon trying to reassemble the slide was stopped from going back on due to the firing pin safety catch sticking too far up. After cleaning the weapon and everything we could think of we could not get it slid back together. I finally had to file the firing pin safety catch down enough to get the slide back on.
After this minor modification the guns fired wonderfully and were very accurate.
To all who purchase, these firearms, make sure you test them before having to potentially go into battle with them.

Hi Mason - Thanks for your review. We have not heard of any other instances with the same issue you experienced and thus believe to be an anomaly. Glad you were able to realize the easy fix. If we need to be of any assistance, please do let us know. Thanks for being a valued customer. God bless....

Review by Phil from ATL on 6/15/14

After a quick cleaning (gun comes very heavily greased/oiled) I headed out to the range. I fed it 4 different brands of ammo (Winchester white box, CCI, S&B, and Magtech) and not a single problem. The gun is built like a tank, heavy and solid, so very little recoil at all. Very comfortable grip, feels awesome in hand. Front sight can be a bit "brighter", but that's an easy fix. This gun is very accurate out of box.
Final analysis - easily the best $300 I've ever spent on a firearm. Get one quick!
Glad I bought it before they ran out.

I always wanted a 9mm and I've always liked the Browning Hi Power that these are supposedly based on, so it was a "no brainer" for me. The quality is very good based on the price and I hope all the research I did will prove this to be a great purchase. I feel the prices of many of Classic's handguns and long guns, make them a front runner in sales for inexpensive, quality guns with a large variety to choose from. I like most of all, the fact that Classic is here, just outside of Charlotte, NC where I live because I like to support my local economy.
Happy Happy Happy!

The Arcus is a very well made pistol. The design is browning all the way. The pistol shoots and functions flawlessly out of the box. It looks as if Classic is doing a great job with them. I would highly recomend the Arcus line of pistols.
Great Pistol
Review by William on 3/17/14

I bought this as I always wanted a Browning Hi power and never could justify the cost. I have to say I am extremely please with this pistol . It shoots great and functions really well . Its dirty out of the box and needs a good cleaning. I took it to the range and ran about 200+ rounds of mixed ammo thru this pistol Tula ammo and remmington, I also fired some hollow points as well I had 2 FTF with the Tula not feeding the whole time that was the only issue. Its is very accurate and I was low at 25 yards but that's probably me I haven't shot pistol at that range in a long time . This is a well made quality pistol I will probably be buying another for the wife As this is really a great deal .
Impressed at first trip to the range

I fired a hundred rounds through it without a hick-up. Super easy to clean. If it continues to perform like it has so far I will purchase another one.
wow!
Review by Stephen on 3/11/14

okay, wasn't expecting this gun to be as nice as it is. i purchased as a gun to throw in range bag/under truck seat...after shooting and having no issues at all as well as just feeling really nice in the hand, i'm not sure i want to abuse it! giving 4 stars only because of the tough DA trigger, a bit harder than i liked but it is able to be carried SA mode and that trigger pull is quite nice.
Good Value Pistol
Review by mecjac on 2/2/14
Quality
I have only put about 100 rounds through my Arcus DAC so I can't really speak for the longevity of the pistol. I can say all rounds fed and fired without an issue. The milling is a little rough on this but for the price point that is to be expected. There is however no 'slop' in the slide and finished is nice. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend as a budget carry piece or entry level pistol.
Excellent buy
Review by gary on 1/22/14

Very nice gun at a very good price. I don't think there are any on line vendors that can come close to matching the prices that Classic offers. Gun feels great in the hand, and very well balanced. Good buy!
A great addition to the arsenal
Review by LL on 3/23/13

I was skeptical even after reading the online reviews about the Arcus. But i took a chance and have been VERY pleasantly surprised. The Arcus is a great weapon. It has good balance, feels great in my hands, is easy to get back on target, and shoots true (it is more accurate than I am). Trigger pull is great in SA, and OK in DA. It feeds anything i put into it. So far, I have shot a 500 round mix of PMC, WWB, Federal Hydra-shok, and local FMJ reloads with no issues. It has become my second favorite carry weapon behind my G19. My only gripe is finding extra magazines for this weapon.

Service from Classic Firearms was fantastic. Even with the recent order crunch the firearm was shipped in a timely manner to my LGS. Communication from Classic was top-knotch also.

One note: be prepared to perform a thorough cleaning on these firearms before shooting - they come packed with grease.
Great feeling BHP clone
Review by Vidd9130 on 2/22/13

Great feeling pistol. Well balanced. The Arcus 98DA and 98DAC are Browning High Power clones. The 98DAC is parts compatible and the 98DA is a bigger higher capacity version. I bought one of each from Classic. New in the box and fun to open. They come a little oily and need wiping down. Anyone that's shot one has liked them. Can't wait to get to the range! When Classic gets the ton tone ones back in, I'm snagging one.
Great Pistol, Great Price
Review by Datrowl on 2/12/13
Quality
What can I say about the Arcus DAC other than its a GREAT pistol, all steel frame and slide, sits good and solid in the hand. The Arcus DAC uses standard Browning hi-power mags which are easy to find and usually quite reasonable in cost. The fit and finish are above the level I'd expect from a pistol this price. The size is almost exactly equal to that of my CZ P01 compact. It goes BANG every time I pull the trigger and holds good tight groups... the DA trigger is not quite as good as that on my CZs but the SA trigger is better.... it brakes clean at about 4 lbs with just a touch of creep..... maby 1/16th inch

overall I'm VERY impressed with how much pistol you get for the money.... I'll watch for em to restock as I'd like to get about 2 more of these....... I believe these pistols are the most under rated value on the market today....buy with confidence, Arcus DAC is good to go.
Not fancy but built like a tank

Bought mine 4 years and 5000 rounds ago. Basic like an old GI 1911 in 9mm w/DA/SA option.Nothing snobbish about it.No name recognition. Often overlooked as a Browning clone. Its my best loved handgun for range or concealed. My duty gun is a Sig...., comp gun is.a Rem 1911 Enhanced, and the Arcus.is my friend.Loyal, dependable, always there.
