Default Latest 1911

I had bought an FNP 9mm a few months ago cheap ($300) and a fella dogged me about it until I swapped him for his Glock 26. This morning I traded the Glock for this RIA "Commander" (regular frame, 4 inch barrel), 3 boxes of ammo, 2 sets of grips, and a Blackhawk Serpa holster. As soon as I got it home I swapped out the MSH for an arched version, put in a better trigger, and changed the grips for soft rubber ones. Yeah, I'm happy...

NG, only you could turn an FNP-9 into a 1911 with extras.

Great job!

I like. I am interested in seeing what you do to it as far as Upgrades go.
You gonna change the Grip safety, hammer and trigger? I want to do those things to my RIA.

I already changed the trigger, the rest will probably stay as is. I have 1911s with bells & whistles so this one will stay stock and will be my truck gun...

Thats a sweet 1911 NGIB. Bells and whistles are nice but simplicity is too.

Ummm, no. Except for really big bore revolvers, I find compensators valueless...
