    Acquaintance of mine has been after me for my Ithaca 1911A1 for better part of a year. Wife has been after me for a 9mm 1911 for almost as long. She found out about the sa ro in 9mm. So I said ok get me a nib ro and I'll trade.

    He called this afternoon and one is on the way. Going to surprise the wife with it. I shoot the Ithaca once a year she will use this a lot more.

    You could have held out for a Colt Talo 1911 in 9 Mike Mike.

    She wants adjustable sights and likes the ro a lot. For this its what she wants that matters.

    I wouldnt personally get a 9mm 1911...

    Jon, I'd have considering selling you my colt.

    Haven't been to the range since getting it back, hopefully it works
