    Picked up my first 1911 yesterday. 2005 model, not a mark on it. Hadn't been fired much at all. Hopefully I didn't do too bad.

    Thanks. She's a very nice pistol. Gonna put some black grips on her, and I'll be set. There was no sign it had ever been fired before I got her. Brought home, stripped, cleaned and ran like a champ.

    I'm afraid it may have started an expensive habit. Good thing I quit smoking last year.

    It was hard for me to pin down a solid value on this exact pistol. Hopefully I didn't overpay, but it is very nice.

    I'm actually shocked at how thin this is. I think I can comfortably use this as a CCW.

    I have slim grips on mine. I really like the feel and the light weight of the scandium frame.

    So, is the Scandium model more valuable? That's how it was presented to me and I was surprised at how light it is. Still has a great solid feel when loaded. Just hoping I didn't overpay too much, lol. I don't feel like I did. Hell, I'm already working a deal for another 1911.

    Just being new to 1911. I researched all I could, but this exact one was limited in information. That and it's from 2005. Was hoping I didn't get one that was known as a bad one. But after spending some time with her, she's fast becoming my favorite.
