Everyone is aware, there's several other large forums out there dedicated to 1911s. I'm a member of just about all of them, but I find myself much more active on this sub forum than any of the others. There's probably a lot of reasons for this, but one big one I enjoy, is the fact that here there is one forum for 1911s, that's all of them. Not one for each manufacturer. I really feel like the setup used by the other forums dedicated to each builder separately, just breeds the fanboys and bashers into every single forum builder forum. Here I think we have the best collection of objective individuals, good discussion & advice, fantastic pictures, and some hella nice pistols. Which is what it's all about. Not much of a point here to say other than that... Stay cool GlockTalk 1911 Forum.
