Well after looking around it came down to the Brown or the Nighthawk. Going with the Nighthawk as I prefer the spur hammer, GI sights and overall look, just a little embellishment but no too much IMO. Looks pretty traditional overall, which I like. The Brown is extremely nice as well but I have a Brown but no Nighthawk so..... Not crazy about the green grips but NH is going to ship with wooden grips as well now. I think the wood grips greatly improve the look of the gun overall. Not going to be a safe queen at all but no harm in looking good either. Do not need a 1911 but hey it's the centennial so I have to get it this year right ????? I mean I would be a fool to miss this 1 in a 100 chance right ???? Buying it though that crack dealer George.
