    I got this a couple years back from a buddy for a good price, and have been searching since for a non-80-series 1911 to host it on (my other 1911s have the 80 series guts).

    It was flawless from the first shot with the colt magazine and bulk federal ammo (also liked the remington subsonic). It choked badly on Fiocchi Match 320 but I can't afford to shoot that stuff anyway. :D

    I knew that frame looked familiar, then I saw the serial. It's the legendary DW RZ-22 Heritage...

    You can buy a shim specifically made to go where the Series 80 parts go. No need to find a non Series 80 frame.

    I know. But they have their own issues. Ask 1911 Tuner.

    And it was an excuse to buy a 70-series. :D
