+1 on the high standard. I plan on picking up a nickel one next year.

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!

Weren't 3 of the first 4 yours? So I guess my next question would be, is the prestige really the exact specification which defines a true 1911, or, rather, the overall design, function and look of the "1911" style?
