    I agree and a worn 1911 looks good to me but this Colt is new and hasn't seen a holster yet. The springer is my current carry piece.

    I agree, I was about to look at Colts, but this Sig was so pretty! How could I resist?

    There was a Marine Colt for sale/trade on another site and it took all I had not to trade my nicest 1911 for it. But it was touch and go.

    It's a terrible, gut wrenching addiction isn't it?

    TRP Operator during a local IDPA match. I traded it straight up with a detective for a DW Specialist and really regret it. TRPs are excellent quality for the price.

    I picked up another Springer the other day. It's got some wear and tear but it's tight. It had a full length guide rod and I changed it back like John Moses intended. It also had some kind of long and fancy trigger in it and I put a short one in it's place. Now I need to get rid of that beaver tail and put a spur hammer back in it.

    Well, I just sold my Glock 30SF, and purchased this Springfield Mil Spec. I can't wait to get to the range, I did a detail strip/cleaning yesterday, and she's ready to go. I've picked up a couple of Chip McCormick Power Mag 8 rounders, (that'll at least get me started).

    Just finished this. I posted some details and more pictures in a separate 1911 forum thread called "PSA Build Finished".

    image.jpeg Love the way the sunlight created a hue with the carbon on the muzzle after some range time.

    Yikes! I attended one "real" IDPA match at a club on Cape Cod years ago and there were some very trick 1911s. Yours looks like one of them! It was a very well run match (Bass River R&G) and would love to participate, but working retail I almost never have a weekend off.

    Such is my life as well since I started working my second job at the grocery store. I need to get my 1911 out to the range more.

    Haven't been posting much lately,but thought I'd post a couple of my latest acquisitions. The top is the ria longslide,the bottom another commander I picked up at a local pawnshop, longslide didn't photograph well , black gun black grips , I have a set of walnut grips for it,but the black rubber one are more comfortable.
