    I wasn't aware they were now. They did before.

    I don't follow that sort of thing because it doesn't appeal to me, especially a "GI" version. :puking:

    Great base for a hi-cap project.

    I have no idea whatsoever when it comes to the double stack mags. The real GI is dependable with FMJ ammo. They aren't built for JHPs.

    It states its a forged frame, so I'm assuming its IMBEL from Brazil, like the real 1911 uses.

    I'm one of the biggest springfield whores probably and I'll admit it, however if I was looking for a double stack I'd go STI. The SA's I've seen mixedish reports on. If you're set on it make sure you handle one first. I love the grip of an STI, the SA not so much.

    STIs are 2011s with modular frames. They're two different things.

    The Springfield is more like Para style and I hate that.

    Yeah I know SA is more Para, but thought I'd give another doublestack "1911" option.

    I definitely prefer STI's quality and style. :)

    Yeah, the concept just seems dumb. Even Para didn't try that nonsense.

    As pointed out above, if you want a base DS 1911 style pistol, I guess you found your gun to customize.

    the para's were decent guns, but only after a gunsmith worked magic on them.
    straight from the factory, mine did not want to run, so i sold it.
    at least i didn't loose any money on it, since i bought it at Gander Mountain for dirt cheap. it was a P14.45 Limited. i REALLY wanted it to work back then, which was before i knew any better :animlol:

    BTW, here's Rob Leatham's Limited gun

    Grip options are slim to none for the hi-cap.
    you can use the STI (2011) trigger on it.
    other parts are similar to Para sizing.
