IMO, better to spend a few bucks more and get the pistol with the features you want from the start. with all the makers and builders of 1911's out there and all the variations of them, there is one out there that has what you want already there at a price you can afford if you shop around.

looking for the first 1911? yes read the stickey by Cane. lots of information and good advice. would be good for us old-timers as well to go back and read it from time to time to refresh our memories!

the 1911 is classic and timeless, a proven performer that will be around for many more years to come. with it's different configurations and styles, it canbe any pistol you need it to be.
Yea cane talked me out of that one when i didnt understand the craftsmanship of thr colt. Now dont get me wrong i will make minor adjustments like a smith and alexander mag shute main housing, night sights and some grips but that all. I may change out the mag release after a few hundred more rounds but its still a baby as of now

I do own a colt it was my gradpa's. I also have other 1911's, sig ,SA,rock,and2 citadells. I was at my local gs yesterday and they have a gold cup. The guy wont let anyone pull rhe slide, he sats u can when u buy it. I have been talking to a couple friends and my sig,rock, and one citadell r going down the road. As soon as they r sold i will have a new colt, may not be the gold cup but it will be a colt. Just have to wait for everything to fall in place. I'm kinda leaning twoards the commander, but i dont want anything shinny mat finish or blued.

This may be one of those "The grass is always greener" kinda things but I've always wanted a commander. I have a combat elite which Arnold immortalized in Term II and an all steel officers but like Goldilocks, I'm looking for one that's juuuuust right.

Winds, why buy them? Just go on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale and shoot the snot out of mine. (One day you will realize I'm not kidding!)

If mike doesnt have what u wany in stock he will get it very soon. Took mr 2 months to have mine alot better than 6 months. Also there is nothing like taking that plastic off yiur cilt and smelling the colt factory on your pistol
