I won tons of pin shoots with it and after 90,000 or so rounds its still shooting well though I don't shoot it much anymore since the pin league at the range where I shot was ended several years ago.
I think the total cost was around 1500 dollars. I have seen several current ones and that same range has several Ed Browns and Nighthawks
really nice guns but I don't know if they are worth 1000-2000 more than say the top of the line Kimber I have or the two top of the line Rock River Arms I bought several years ago (a pair for 4K)
I also have two of Les Baer's first run of Premier IIs. also great guns for the money.
Cool story. Post a pic of your gun.
As for the Kimber and Rock River, those two are a long ways apart in quality. My Rock River is on par with alot of semi-customs. They made a damn fine 1911.
