    My 1911 is my carry pistol

    Its already become my pride and joy

    This gun shoots better than any gun I've ever had...the sig doesn't compare...the 44 is nice though...but by far this 1911 has made me a believer

    Great choice! Your real taste has surfaced!

    Look familiar?

    Isn't that trigger THE BEST you have pulled?

    There is a reason us Colt 1911 owners are rabid in loyalty!

    All you need now is a high rise bevertail, a pair of Tripp Cobra mags and pitch that plastic MSH for a S&A arched MSH w/mag-guide!

    I like my grip safety with a palm swell.

    Real Stags and a Fobus. This holster provides a good cant, high ride, cheap and hides well with a jacket or long shirt.

    That part is a plastic flat MSH. It is pretty-much standard on production 1911s today. Don't believe me, stick it with a knife tip. It's a great way to take a "MR. 1911 macho owner" down a notch or two! This is not wise to do to any owner of a high-end 1911.

    I loath tupperware (plastic)! It was the only reason I needed to replace it with a SS mainspring housing and the mag-guide was a plus!

    This is a S&A SS arched MSH w/mag-guide.
