My Dad had a pair of Pythons that I figured I'd someday inherit. Being in the military, I wasn't home much and my little brother conned Dad out of all of his guns through the years. He sold all of them cheap for beer money - sad, very sad...

I know one can never have enough 1911s, but since you've got a couple, how about JMB's second greatest design? Get a nice customized HP!

Novak and Cylinder & Slide offer some great packages, there's also a place Cane recommended, but I can't find the link.

I've had a Hi-Power and they are a very nice gun - hated the trigger though. Sadly, once you've experienced the bliss that is the 1911 - you're ruined for life. I really think I'll go with the Springer long slide I pictured and Hydrashok is looking for one of them for me as we speak. The remaining coin will go towards something...

Well if you have some extra coin laying around I can use some .357 ammunition.

Well, if you're determined to go all-out, there's plenty of 1911 options. Nighthawk, Wilson, even STI. One new kid on the block that's gotten good early reviews recently is Volkmann Custom. Worth a look I suppose. Same price range as other premium 1911 customs...$2500 give or take.

Anyone have any insight into Volkmann?

NGIB already said he made up his mind to go with the loaded springer.

Hope you find one soon!
