Thanks guys, she is well taken care of :-)

To Halfwatt, they come parkarized but my gunsmith Blued it for me. I have replaced quite a few parts on it,not because it needed it, its just because i like putting a personal touch on things. The hammer is cylinder and slide and the rest is Ed Brown

Have you made a decision on what 1911 your getting?

Kinda leaning toward the Springfield mil-spec. I've shot my father-in-laws before and loved it. His is the stainless. Though stainless isn't for me in a handgun.

Anyone have any comments on the Remington R1s. The stainless the are bringing out looks pretty good to me. From what I have been able to read they are accurate and well fitted.

The High Standard is new to me. Is that the High Standard Co out of Texas that also makes the .22 pistols?

It looks like a nice 1911 as well.

Canebrake has an R1 and says it's a fine gun. He's kind of our resident expert on 1911's.

High standard is a filipino gun, I think armscor may have bought the name from the texas company, but I don't know for sure. They are also fine guns, we have at least one owner who seems in love with his, and I was very impressed when I handled one in a store a few years ago.
