I've been following this, and now have to ask...

Would my SA Milspec be a 1911, or a pattern?

Interesting.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

A long slide has the same size receiver as the Government and the Commander.

A "TRUE" 1911 would be a copy of the Colt M1911.

Everything else is a copy of this pattern with poetic license.

So does the Browning HiPower fall anywhere in there on this ever elusive and exclusive slippery scale you all use?
