    Nice! I'm also a big fan of Sig 1911's...they make a quality product right out of the box.

    521C405E-2617-4892-9E1D-6D014200FCBD.jpeg My Springfield loaded , I changed some things on it , put a rock Island black trigger , curved main spring housing, fatter than factory grips , no more two piece guide rod I made it into a one piece so easily take down. Love the way it shoots now. Also buying a set of meprolight night sights for it I don’t like the ones on it now

An early stainless TRP (5/98). Previous owner two-toned it. I added the Esmeralda grips. I think it’s in the ‘permanent pile.’ Before and after

    I'm no expert by any means, but hasn't it had been pretty well determined that there is nothing wrong with MIM parts? On the other hand, if it makes
    you feel better doing it, that's all that matters. Nice looking Commander; good size for carry, and big enough to shoot accurately. Let us know how it
    goes. :)

    Thanks I had many mim parts on my new sigs snap , I’d feel better replacing them for better quality parts. Mim parts are
    made to cut price down anyway

    If you don't want MIM parts, why not go with an option like Dan Wesson (that come with no MIM parts)?

    TRP light.jpg Here is my Springfield TRP Operator with half rail. This pistol is a blast to shoot(pun intended)! It's had about 700 rounds through it so far.

    Deleted my old post, putting up pictures from after the cleaning. By the way, I don’t know what the orange stuff in the old pictures was but it rubbed off in my hand and wasn’t rust. 2AEEAED2-A1CB-4903-8405-78924A20478E.jpeg DFEDA03F-43AD-48F3-BC7E-DCD5B3C265E5.jpeg

    My "fake" 1911. Looks like crap, but shoots wonderfully! The rust/wear on the frame and slide is nowhere near as bad in person...

    Sent my Premier II to Les Baer for a checkered magwell. They reblued the entire gun so that it all matches. Just gave it a cleaning. Heavy fondling occurred. I will now spend the rest of my days shooting the heck out of it.

    My Kimber I had finished in Cerakote "Kracken", it changes color depending on the view angle.
