    I love my Guncrafter NN. I can't compare it to the Pro. I am seriously contemplating bringing home a Commander to keep it company. Waiting to hear from Dave today...

    Talking to Dave offline....I am guessing he will give the Pro the nod.

    There's something about the Pro that people like. I shot lawdogs GCNN and while its nice I like my Pro.
    lawdog shot my Pro and now he wants one.

    Dave was saying that the 15LPI on the NN was less agressive than the 20LPI on the TRP. He said Alex knocks the points off. What did you think?

    Why not look at the other semi-custom 1911 brands? Les Baer and Nighthawk both make sweet guns.

    So where is your money tree at? I wish I could have gotten a NightHawk instead of my Springfield, for some reason I didn't.

    That might be a good idea, it sounds like you may very well end up with both at some point, so going with the Pro first sort of makes sense.

    I faced the same choice and I went with the no name. I got a great deal from drc and I didn't want to wait the year on the pro. Drc is selling a used pro right now and if I can save some money, I'll be buying it. Having shot my no name and quack's pro there really is no bad choice with these two.

    That won't last long around here with these addicts and their love of the TRP.

    I am not sure which I would have chosen if both were available with similar lead times. As it was, Dave put in an order on the Pro first and had the NN to me in short order (since it was originally destined for him!) I will be lucky to see the Pro by October this year. I am/was in no rush. Both were on my short list - in no order. You cannot go wrong with either.
