    I bought that same gun for my Dad for his Birthday last year. He loves it! I also think it's a great gun. He has had it for a year without a problem. He says he really likes how it handles the recoil. And how nice it shoots.
    CONGRATULATIONS on a well made 1911.

    Did you get it with night sights or standard white dot? I have a set of Heine Straight 8 night sights that I took off mine.

    Those film crews should have been at Maryville, Illinois today asking why that state want let people CCW. It might have saved the life of the pastor and kept 2 more people from being stabbed when the shooter's .45ACP jammed on the 2nd shot. While they are there they could on up north to Wisconsin and interview the Governor about the same thing.

    I guess, even if it were legal in those 2 states, they would still ban guns from all churches.
