Are you looking for a plain jane 1911 configuration or more of a "suped up" configuration?

I cc two matched gold cups. They are an awesome and sexy piece of weaponry. Mine were pretty much plain jane when i got them. Now they have alot of dan wesson parts in them plus crimson trace low profile adjustable night sights(replaced my tru glows last night) and pronghorn grips. I love them. Mine are matte finished now which w the goat horn grips is bad@$$ if i do say so myself. They shoot and function awesomely straight out of the box.
