I would like to get a GI looking 1911. The Colt 1991 has the look, and I would really prefer blued to parkerized. I would just use it as a house gun, take it to the range to shoot, and have no aspirations (delusions) about becoming a great marksman. To me, the firing pin block to make it drop safe seems like a plus, even though I realize it makes it hard to get a great trigger job, which I don't think I need. Plus which, Hickok45 has one! But I sense a lack of affection for them here. What is a better alternative for a blued, GI looking 1911? Learn to live with parkerized?
