    Sorry for 2 threads in one day, but I am hyped up and ready to spend some Ben Franklins. I am about a day or 2 away from calling George and putting in an order on a Pro. There's no turning back after I place the order, so I want to be 110% sure of it. I am going to take Quack's comment about once you go custom you can't go back to production guns comment and just go all out for my first 1911. I am interested in seeing pictures and hearing comments on the high end 1911s that YOU own. The Professional is in the driver's seat right now, but I may see a picture of a gun that is even more awe inspiring to me than the Pro. Sorry for the 2nd thread in the same day, but I am amped up here. The more pictures and commentary you guys can provide, the more secure I will be on handing over several thousand dollars of my hard earned cash. :)

    My RRAs and my Baer PII are my only "high end" models, all three have their attributes, but the Limited Match RRA is my favorite.

    Hmmm....


    I really like my NH Enforcer lately, so I may put it at number one.

    I like my SA Custom for the fact there isn't a duplicate of mine...or at least I hope not.

    I like my Pro, when it's not temperamental

    I haven't seen my TRS in 6 months, but it's still one of my all time favorites.

    Can I post that I wish to own a Nighthawk GRP Recon or Talon. I baby sat a standard GRP for a few months, and what a great few months they were. I played with that more than I did my primary "gun".

    Aside from the flat trigger, this is one of my favorite Springfields I have ever seen, Wade. :drool:

    I should have known I'd find Quack over here posting the goodies! Very nice as usual Don, that railed Operator sure has me wanting one.
