    Great gun. When my father passed away, I inherited his guns. He loved this Springfield GI 1911-A1. Despite being stainless steel so not an exact copy, the GI 1911-A1 is a great pistol.

    That's a nice looking pistola.

    They did a good on those M1911A1's, too bad they don't offer them anymore. I had one shortly after they brought them out (course I changed out the small bits for the correct for era versions )

    Bravo Dan! Bravo and well done, sir! That is one sharp looking Super .38! Evidently you found a shorter trigger for it, which looks great. Looks like you changed out the thumb safety as well. Nice grip panels too.

    Just beautiful!

    Have you taken it for a spin yet?

    Thanks Reid.

    I bought a Harrison "extreme service" short trigger, amazingly, it required very little fitting compared to the others I have fit. Also changed the firing pin stop, arch checkered mainspring housing I'd forgotten about, the thumb safety and stocks as you mentioned (originals had plain full checkered walnut) but the rosewood were all the full checkered I had on hand.

    I have not had it out yet, ammo just arrived a few minutes ago as a matter of fact. I am a little disappointed in the pictures, not to sound like a braggart, but it really is much better looking "in real life"'

    ETA: Changed hammers also.

    FWIW - The photo of it looks great, but I get what you mean. The rosewood stocks look really nice. (Rosewood is a common wood used for acoustic and electric guitar fretboards.)

    Did it come with one or two magazines?

    Yes sir, rosewood is pretty.

    Just one magazine, I called Colt Customer Service and was on hold off and on for an hour.
    I was really ticked by then and just started punching numbers hoping to get someones extension, I did, Human Resources!

    Of course it was a recording, I left her an ear full and a number, we'll see if she has the guts to call back.
