Man, the pictures just don't do this gun ANY justice whatsoever. What a beauty! And feels great. I had to shoot it, and the only place to do that today was at a gravel pit. Not my ideal place to shoot, but I got to shoot it. Shot great. Feels really smooth and from what I could tell from shooting offhand at unknown distances at cans and water bottles, it's gonna be a real shooter when I get it to a real range and can shoot at real targets. I did nail a 5 gallon bucket at 150-175 yards! Granted it was on the fifth shot and I missed it the first four,but it still was a hit. I'll post some pics tomorrow(left my camera cord at work). Great gun. Another gun that I got from Dave(drc767). Won't be the last either. I even gave Alex a call this afternoon to tell him how pleased I was with it. He seemed pretty pleased to hear the praises. He's one hell of a gun builder. I think I have a new favorite 1911. Today really is Super Tuesday!
