    I've cut up countless of those babes for custom builds. You can't go wrong. Send it to Novak with your custom spec requirements. You'll have a one of a kind fighting machine when they are done.

    Thanks guys. I had started another thread about Rock Island Armory and their 1911's. I wanted one because I was on a tight budget...

    That was the case before a found this gem.

    Call me a snob but other than semi customs the only 1911 I will own are colts. Have 4 right now. I say if you want extra crap on your gun( Beaver tails round hammers etc) it makes sense to just get one that way from the start. When I started shooting 30 years ago there were not the choices we have today on factory guns. Buying a colt and hacking it up was the only option - how things have changed!

    Absolutely beautiful. I get 1911 fever every so often; am just fighting off a bout right now. I don't need one even slightly, and then think maybe a moderately priced, decent looking GI style would satisfy me. Then I see pictures of this. I'm fortunate I've never seen one in a store. I don't think I could resist.

    Congratulations.
