    Love it... I have an RCS (C3 with melt job) and couldn't be happier. As for a holster... I've been using a Kholster (crossbreed supertuck knock off) but don't really care for it much.

    I wasn't aware so many 1911s were homeless. Is there some sort of orphanage for 1911s I don't know about?

    I also had a RCS version of the C3. Mine was carried in a holster made by Backwoods Leather. Unfortunately it is a local maker and he doesn't have a website.

    Congrats on a great 1911.

    I was going to get a C3 but my LGS was out and I got the Sig 1911 Ultra instead and I love it. Great shooter and well built.

    Way to step up and go out of your way to give that bad boy a home. I will be buying a kilt sparks for mine. No experience but have heard nothing negative and everything positive about them. Well, other than the wait time for a custom one.

    Sweet looking pistol, remember 1911s are communal and you must have more than one.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    As the holidays approach, I get teary-eyed thinking about all those 1911 that don't have homes. I applaud you for make room for one. I hope that others will think long and hard about giving homes to all those still wanting.
