I got a phone call this from the LGS that my loaded micro compact 45 was in. I have to wait until March 26 until I can pick it up since I am down in Florida until the 23rd of March. Makes it awfully hard to wait. Glad to hear that you like it and that the recoil is manageable. It will make a nice partnership with my EMP 9 and 40 and a little brother to my Ultracompact Stainless Springer 45. This damn disease is difficult to shake. I may have to trade some others for any more 1911's. Keep us posted on your adventures with the new addition.
