I am waiting for my dealer to get me another Glock 21sf. He got one in with the ambi release and tactical rail but I refused it, he was somewhat irked but understood. The serial number NTC*** says Sept 2009 so it was an older but NEW gun. Anyway while waiting for my 21SF, my mind is wandering. Been looking at 1911s instead of the 21sf. The gun is for home defense and range use only, not to carry. I have been eyeing a Colt 1911 Gold Cup SS Trophy for a little over $1k. I do have a CZ97B Glossy but it is a safe queen, I am afraid to scratch it up. Yes I am one of those who treasure and hates scratches and marks on their guns. The CZ is glossy blue and will scratch, the Glock well is a Glock and the frame is basically scratch proof, and the slide is easily replaced or refinished. The Colt is SS and any marks could be polished out, unlike a blued gun. What do you boys think?
