    My first 1911. Wow... what a hunk of steel! A lot of you guys have been a great resource in my decision. Thanks!

    Man, this thing is tight! No rattles or obvious flaws to my untrained eye. I gave her a field strip and made sure everything's clean and lubed and it looks to be good to go! Can't wait to get to the range and see what we can do.

    A few pics:

    Man... I do like these grips. I almost don't want to try the Pachmayrs I'll be getting

    I hope my polymer doesn't get jealous... :supergrin:

    Congratulations! Beautiful gun. Nothing like the feeling of bringing home a new member of the family from the gun shop. Whenever I get a new one, I find myself just walking around my house with the new piece (unloaded, of course) tucked into my waistband. I'm like a kid with a new toy.

    Kids: Guns are not toys. ;)

    Sweet looking gun. I have always loved my Springer 1911's. I hope they offer this model in stainless someday. Just not too soon. My wallet is a bit thin right now. :crying:

    Man... I'm looking at a TRP right after the first of the year, but I'm very, very seriously considering grabbing one of these and spending the balance on combat sights, mags, and ammo. I just love the looks of this gun and I'm feeling more and more that I don't need all of the features of the TRP right now, as I can upgrade certain components later.

    Talk about being in a quandary.

    No quandary at all in my opinion, I'd get the TRP if you're going to change the sights anyway.
