Thanks for the responses guys. I'm ordering some Wilson combat 47D mags and an extended slide release.
Since I'm new to the 1911 world, and I'm already drooling over other models (and the fact that I talked myself away from the $3,000 Wilson combat 10mm), I'm gonna use this as my 1911 project gun.
I've been reading about the slide lapping project, and investigating purging all the MIM parts with Wilson combat parts. Why not? Seems like a good foray into the 1911 world.
And if any of you guys see Cane, tell him that I'm really, really sorry, buti couldn't find a Colt. I tried, but my AR15 is a colt because of him, so at least give me that.
