    or does it need to be in .45 cal in order to be in the "1911" category?

    Personally I'm not that much of a purist, pretty much any caliber is ok with me.

    Sarge, that is a beautiful gun. Mind if I ask what grips those are?

    Thanks Grumpy. The grips are standard factory grips. I prefer the first gen. grips with the pebble texture but these work fine.

    What do you find undesirable besides caliber, Brian ?

    It's a 1911 to me, but to some purists it isn't, it's a "Government" model and some object to the series 80 firing pin safety system. Doesn't bother me.
