  1. Now I'm seeing the SALightweight Operator for @$900. Dang it this ain't easy... Biggest decision I need to make is what I want to spend.

  2. When I was looking for a SA LW champion operator, it took me about three months. I got one for $780 from a guy in Connecticut. Keep your eyes open they're out there.

  3. If I am not mistaken, the Colt Rail gun has less MIM parts, than most of the other production guns. I looked at the new Colt Rail gun in all black, it's seems to be very well made,and fit and finish was very impressive.
  4. Kimber TLE is a great service pistol. I don't know if LAPD SWAT is still using it but I know at one time it was their sevice pistol. Mine has never failed me although I do use Wilson Mags. I think you would be happy with it.

    I vote the RO my friend:thumbsup:
  6. I vote either RO or RIA! I have the "tactical" RIA and It's been really great to me! Almost bought the RO, but decided that if I didn't like the RIA I could either buy the parts to make it better (1911 parts are cheap!) Or just trade it towards the RO. I couldn't be happier with the RIA though. I just wish it had a single sided GI thumb safety instead of the ambi one :supergrin:

  7. Man, you keep that gun pristine. Have you ever even shot it? It looks great my friend. I typically go for "interesting-grained" wood grips, but I love the OD synthetics on yours.

    Go with the best that your budget will allow then replace any MIM parts you don't like as your budget will allow. JMHO, YMMV.
