Was wondering what 1911 purchases where going to be made this year to celebrate 100 years of the 1911. I bought mine at the end of December and picked it up on the 2nd. I waited for parts to come in to change out the plastic MSH to a Nighthawk Custom w/magwell, 80 series deletion plate and Nighthawk GI style guide rod and plug which came in today and some blue grip screws I had on hand. I was going to change the grips so it didn't look like every other Combat Elite out there but I like them way to much. I know its early but I couldn't wait until March. On top of this purchse I plan to shoot my 1911s a whole lot more. Even though I carry Glocks now mostly, I do carry my RIA compact from time to time. The 1911 will always be my favorite platform.
