While you're there, if either of these is in stock and if you're considering a compact 1911 for carry, check out the STI Shadow 1911 and the Kimber Tactical Ultra 1911. Both are available in .45 ACP and 9mm, by the way. The Tactical Ultra is about $1050 (street); the Shadow, about $1250.
I'm a bit late to the party, if everyone is supposed to have at least one 1911. I still don't have a single one. Am open to orphans, if any is looking for a good home. Either one of these would do nicely.
G19? Famous last words.What ever I get may become my EDC and retire my G19.
