Thanks a lot CaneBrake. Well the thing I'm not too crazy about with the Series 80 is the firing safety pin, even if it ends up not affecting the trigger pull, it's added parts prone to breaking in my opinion, then I'm not the 1911 expert
The XSE seems like a great choice and I love the markings on it. I'm going to keep an eye out on gunbroker for XSEs and Special Combat Government (mostly for epic looks, parts can be changed down the road if needed). I'll let you know guys when I buy something, it won't be just now because I'm travelling atm
Also to be honest, I was surprised at how many people are recommending SS pistols when it seems that people really prefer blue carbon steels? Also if Carbon Steel isn't blued, is it more prone to rust if it's just given a chrome finish?
