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!

What your telling me makes perfect sense...think ill just get the silver one for 863 and ammo, I do however want to put a magshute on it

One of the good and fun things about 1911s is they are like Barbie dolls for men. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with buying any 1911 and customizing to fit YOUR needs. Colt makes great guns but I love to get rid of parts on guns and make it mine. I will not tolerate a plastic MSH for instance and Colt uses them a bunch. Different grips and grip screws and replace the MIM internal parts. Just fun to do.
