The CBOB is a great pistol and I'm sure you'll like yours more as time goes by. I have one and it's my favorite 1911.
P.S. I've got older eyes too.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
