1911, 5" full size, all steel, with factory night sights. My two finalists, after much
research, are Kimber Custom TLE II (blued), and Springfield Armory Loaded (parkerized). I can
get a screaming dea...

Sorry to hear of so much dissatisfaction with BPS. I have worked the gun counter at the Tacoma,
WA BPS store since it opened in Oct of 2014. I am a retired military/DOD civilian (and former

Thanks very much for the superb info, gentlemen, and thanks for correcting my confusion
concerning MIM vs forged parts. Still a little puzzled why the gas key on a PSA M16 BCG is

One of these days.....hopefully. Every time I get a "BCG In Stock" email from BCM, they're "Not
