    I am hoping for a pair of NN's to come visit me for the holiday. But since I live in CA I probably wont be able to DROS them until 2013!!!! Got to love the 1 in 30 Day Rule for CA.

    Tell me about it, I have a bunch a 1911's siting at a store that are paid off. Each month I have to decide which one I want to take home. This month it is going to be a Volkmann from a fellow 1911 Addict!!! It just looks to good to leave sitting there.

    That REALLY sucks. If the Volkmann is the one that recently sold on addicts, I would be silly wanting it to come home.

    Trust me, I am on the way first thing in the morning. Now what I need is for someone to sell me their Springer PRO, so I can get that into the mix. Anybody? Anybody?????

    A Pro is easily acquired,......just a long wait.

    A stainless steel Guncrafter Industries' No Name, 1of 3,
    built Alex, who is Wilson Combat's previous Pistol Smith,
    head engineer, & states these were to Master Grade specs?
    Now that one is the one I want. :cool:

    Did I mention it's shiny? :rofl:

    Yep, I noticed the flats were polished. Don't see to many NN done that way. Beautiful! Just try not to scratch it.

    It was the only one to have the slide flats polished. I really like the
    look. Never have cared for the slide & frame flats both being bushed/polished.
    It will get scratched,.........but it is easier to clean up than a finished one.
