    It looks like I have my TRG/S&B combo sold. I'm going to use some of the proceeds to buy a 1911 or two. Right now I have two options that I'm totally up in the air on.

    Option 1
    Guncrafter NN Commander and an older Colt (Commercial or National Match)

    Option 2
    Pistol Dynamics Combat Special Evo

    Bac responded to my earlier PD thread, and I know that he likes his, but can anyone give me any insight to help sway me to one or the other? I'm thinking two guns instead of one, but I'm also a fan of quality over quantity. Just so everyone knows where I'm at now with 1911's I currently have a Baer TRS, a custom Delta Elite built by Bruce Gray, and I'm also on the list with George for a Pro.

    Any insight/opinions/experience is appreciated.

    I did. Been really slow about the range report and pics next to the big brother. The only difference in pics is that it now sports the standard long (not flat) trigger.

    I'd go with A, but with a Baer Commanche vs NN and a year of birth colt commercial

    Wow.

    They are two great options. I honestly could not decide myself. The Pistol Dynamics is a masterpiece, but the No Name is a well built duty gun and I love old Colts.

    I'd probably go with the PD, as its a once in a lifetime sort of gun. Paul won't be building them forever. You can always get a Guncrafter and Colt later.

    Man, there are so many subtle things about the PD that are absolutely awesome. He makes a hell of a nice gun.

    That's about what I'm thinking. Thankfully I have a few days to figure it out.
