Well, after a few failed attempts & a pretty long quest, I have finally ended up with a really nice 1911...well, 1991 :D It's a stainless XSE that has had some work done by a smith I have grown to appreciate. So far, I'm only a few 100 rounds into the break in period, but I'm really happy with the results :cool: :D

A Colt... very nice.
Good choice.
Let's see some pictures.... How are you going to customize it? (A 1911 Requirement)

I changed out the bushing, beavertail & trigger, added a arched MSH/mag well and had the trigger tuned. She shoots the way I had always imagined a 1911 was suppose to shoot!!! (SWEET!) :D ;)
I've got some CF grips on order for her...when they get in, I'll see what I can do about posting pics! ;)
