    *Update* Range report on post 38

    On my way home from work today I was able to stop by my FFL on pick up my new 1911. I must say I am very pleased with both the fit and finish of this pistol. I will try to make it out to the range in the next week and I'll udpate this thread with a range report.

    It is the STI Trojan with the enhancement package from Dawson Precision. I had the trigger tuned to 3.5# and it feels great with very little takeup and a nice clean break without any noticeable over travel. By far the best trigger I have felt. I also was surprised to find an ambi safety that I did not order :cool: I am excited with my new purchase and can't wait to hit the range. Thanks to everyone that helped me decide on my first 1911.
