    I had bought an FNP 9mm a few months ago cheap ($300) and a fella dogged me about it until I swapped him for his Glock 26. This morning I traded the Glock for this RIA "Commander" (regular frame, 4 inch barrel), 3 boxes of ammo, 2 sets of grips, and a Blackhawk Serpa holster. As soon as I got it home I swapped out the MSH for an arched version, put in a better trigger, and changed the grips for soft rubber ones. Yeah, I'm happy...

    NG, only you could turn an FNP-9 into a 1911 with extras. :D

    Great job!

    I like. I am interested in seeing what you do to it as far as Upgrades go.
    You gonna change the Grip safety, hammer and trigger? I want to do those things to my RIA.

    I already changed the trigger, the rest will probably stay as is. I have 1911s with bells & whistles so this one will stay stock and will be my truck gun...

    I am a firm believer in the "Truck gun" :)

    Thats a sweet 1911 NGIB. Bells and whistles are nice but simplicity is too.

    Ummm, no. Except for really big bore revolvers, I find compensators valueless...

    Are you sure??

    I saw this High-Pointy in 9mm with a comp!

    It must have value if they need it.

    Nice trade NGIB! I used to do a lot of horsetrading but now pretty much have quit. I'm down to the guns I want to keep and am going to leave it at that for awhile.

    Congrats on the RIA. BTW, there's nothing wrong with the FNP or the Glock.
