    Congrats :wavey: Nice looking 1911.

    Ammo: Just stay with a name brand and you will be fine. Winchester, Federal, Remington, Hornady Etc....

    Mags: Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, Tripps, Mecgar, Chip McCormick are just some of the good ones

    Cleaning: Just watch a few of the videos on yourtube for how to and just basic cleaning supplies as with all other firearms.

    :)

    Ah yes the great grip collection, no 1911 guy is truly a 1911 guy unless they own 6 sets of grips for every 1911 they own. :rofl:

    Not sure if you know but make sure any grips you buy are cut for the ambi safety your gun has.

    Actually, with that style ambi, he doesn't need the slot underneath the grip. In fact, I was just looking at my Daly EFS, which is basically the same 1911, and it doesn't even have a cut out on the top of the grip.

    Its just a standard right side 1911 grip.

  10. I'm not usually a fan of larger sized rollmarks, but I think that looks fantastic. Nice piece!

    Congrats!

    When you're cleaning it, check the firing pin channel for packing grease.
