Nice! Looks a lot like a Kimber TLE II. I think the 1911 is probably the sexiest handgun in the world.
God & Guns!
i like it, price seems fair enough, i wonder how it will hold up to consumer critizism.

Honestly? Meh. Hate the black blackstrap. Good price, but look at a Bauer or Brown and tell me they don't look much sexier.
Just my thoughts.
Nice looking pistol.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

While pretty, no where near as pretty as this.

Nice. But I'll pass as I have just ordered a Ruger SR1911CMD. It has a few more black parts and i think that makes it look better. But on the other hand looks are just looks. How it shoots and its reliability is what will make it or break it.
That's a very pretty gun, looks great. I love the 1911's, have two of them myself, and certainly lust after more.
I do appreciate the beauty of a gun like an Ed Brown custom, and when you research the details it's obvious to see why they're worth so much. But I vacillate between beauty and function, and while beauty is always appreciated, function always wins. It just doesn't seem practical to me to spend $3500 on a gun when I can get a very nice, very well-built gun from a very reputable manufacturer for $800. I can buy a lot of bullets for $2700.
I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.
