    I don't seem to see too many of these. Are they uncommon? I've got a Black Stainless Loaded Target and I was thinking or ditching it and putting in an order for a professional. However I was also rolling around the idea of sending it to the custom shop to get some upgrades.

    What say you?

    Here's a picture for good measure.

    Not really uncommon, but they are not everywhere by no means. ( If that makes sense).

    If you like everything about the Pro then get it as that would make better financial sense.

    If you just want to change a few things then have your gun tailored to you.

    I have one, my first 1911. Not that many in the shops ot GS tables. Idiot scratch very noticeable :(, I know, I should had read much more befor opening the box.
    I thought I wanted a piece that required nothing but ammo.

    You mught be able to do the upgrades yourself and invest the shipping on the parts :)

    Blessings

    Personally I am fond of the Black Stainless even though I do not have one.

    the first 1911 I was gonna buy was the black stainless, but I couldnt find one so I got something else, I would still like to get one with Novak sights (I don't care for target sights)

    Picked up the Combat black stainless about three days ago. She's a beauty! After a couple of days of consideration, I decided it was too much "bling" for a duty gun. Besides, I'd hate to get her all buggered up on duty. She's too purty. Put her up for sale. Didn't even get to take her to the range!

    Just send that one in for a fitted match barrel, tritium inserts and tuned trigger. Then you will have a gun that will hold its own in any shooting match if you do your part and will not have to wait. I ordered a 9mm Custom Carry, Black slide, OD frame with a few other things I like back in Feb. The very nice lady at the custom shop said it would take 6-8 months for it to get here.

    It looks like pewter color. Is it really that color, or just the lighting?
