Very nice, good price too!
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Good advice all around. I've been researching the grip safety and have the tooling to modify it if needed. To clarify, I have no intention of modifying the frame. Definitely will be looking for a drop in replacement.

Nice deal, and a great pistol!
My first 1911 was a Combat Commander, bought new in 1978(?). I've always wanted to add more 1911's to my stable, but never actually did, until a few weeks ago, with my new Sig C3:
Just got it out (finally!) to shoot yesterday. Sweet!
I waited too long for my 2nd 1911! Gotta figure out which one to get next! Suggest you don't wait 30+ years for your second one!
Yeah, been eyeballing a WC here recently. Trying to make up my mind if my kid really needs college or not.
Somebody call the cops, this man stole that gun! LOL, Great deal, enjoy that 1911. My guess is it won't be your last one, they do seem to multiply.
I don't want to be a hero, but I'm sure not going to be a victim.

There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those that describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
Got the 1911-A1 Stainless IIRC I paid around 450.00 used about 8 years ago

My opinion shouldn't be taken seriously due to the fact that I've been shooting guns for over 30 years and have only recently been active on gun forums, where all the real world knowledge apparently is.
Excellent price on a great pistol. Who cares if it has had a hammer or anything else replaced. Who cares if it might have a scratch on it. Shoot the hell out of it. AS for a Hi Power? Good luck for finding one at a good price. I love mine and it is one of the last I would ever consider getting rid of.
