    in my opinion. series 70, with novak lomounts, vertical cocking serations, spur trigger, no beavertail, flat msh, no mag well, long trigger, all work done internal. throwback. maybe fsc, 25lpi. perhaps the beavertail because of the trigger job. i'd have to live with that.

    I don't think I'll ever get tired of looking at Okie's RO.

    I agree other than the long trigger. I actually prefer a short trigger, much like the old steel 1911A1 USGI triggers.

    Other than that, you basically describe how I asked Mark Morris to build this. Its on a Series 70 Colt, with all redone internals, 30lpi checkering, beavertail, Morris TKO sights, Morris match grade crowned barrel, single sided safety, etc. :)

    It's nice to have options.

    I detest the old GI-style grip safety, but thank Kimber, that is no longer a custom-only feature.

    I do prefer long triggers and flat MSHs.

    On 5" guns, I prefer adjustable rear sights as well. My RO hasn't had as much "tweaking" as okie's, but I'm quite fond of it.

    If I didn't already own a TRP, I would have. The RO is basically the TRP without the extra features.

    I'll still get one at some point though. ;)

    Dan Wesson Valor, my EDC. I have owned prettier 1911s but none that appealed to me more than this one because of its combination of clean lines, fit and function.

    At nearly half the cost as well.

    I love my TRP, but I like the adjustable sights on the RO. I think it's a much better value than the Trophy Match (which I'd like a lot better if it was finished like the TRP)

    Those are the things that attracted me to the TRP. Except for the FLGR, I think it's just about perfect for a production piece.

    That's pretty much where the extra cost is on the TRP over the Trophy Match, the finish.

    Other than that and the sights, they're pretty much the same gun.
