Just personal taste- Many highlight the lettering to make it stand out even more- I just don't care for it- Only thing that should be stamped on a handgun is caliber IMO

OPPS - Sorry Cane------- There shud be a Pony on every 1911

I would love to darken it up or black it out to be honest

I plan on picking up the Nickel plated full size RIA. I plan on putting on some pearl grips and make it look like the old Colt .38 Super 1911s.

These are the RIA's I'm waiting for on GragaGun.com. I'll likely jump on the 1st one that arrives in stock. Although, I'm leaning towards the VZ FC because of the angled groves on the slide and that is on front and back. We'll see when I get the "in stock" notify. I've also been eyeing out a polymer pistol...

Armscor RI 2011 45ACP 8RD 5" VZ FC: $566.99

My 1st 1911 is a 9mm. Need to complete my collection with an official 1911 .45acp.

Picked mine up yesterday and shot 150 rounds through it today. No problems except for the 3 times I pushed the slide lock up after firing a round locking the slide back. I think I was hitting it with my left thumb (I shoot right handed).
