    IMHO this pistol has got to be one of the best values out there for a stainless 1911 that's made here in the USA.

    Now all I need is some new grips. What say you 1911 folks? What looks good on my Ruger?

    VZ for sure!! I like the Operator II's, Gunner grips, Recons, and Aliens. All will look extremely sexy

    Nice wood grips look the best. But I'm an old carpenter who loves wood. Boy did I open a door.

    Congrats, I havent even been able to see one in person yet.
    My dealer has only been able to get one in, and it sold in under an hour.

    They are a nice looking gun. From what I've seen they beat out the value line of Springfield Armory by a wide margin.

    I'd have to start by replacing the blued small bits. The factory grips I've seen appear just fine for me.
