    I have two real 1911s and two wannabes.

    Smith revos and 1911s? I love your taste in guns Mr. Shear!

    Please excuse my poor taste in reloading bench covers!

    HA! On that light weight Officers , which I assume is NP3 , I notice your using a low safety. I too have found the low safety to work well on the shortened grip officers model. What did he do to the front strap? What are the sights?:)

    Ah Kruzr! We meet again my friend.
    Gordon, yes I like the low safety as I shoot thumbs fowrward and straight.
    The frontstrap is a somewhat high but not course stipple with a beautifull straight edge border. The sights are P-T bar-bot nite sites.

    Did you get that Kruzr?! Same goes for you and your Fancy Schmancy Ed Brown. :mad:

    Of course I'm both kidding and extremely jealous. :neener: The bobtail Ed Browns are (IMO) the sexiest 1911's yet. One of these days...

    LOL, yep. I had my other guns out last night, couple colts, couple Kimbers pre-S2 and this springfield has a completely different feel. I think it's a combo of the short trigger, flat MSH, and trimmed thumbsafety. It's just liek a well fitted glove. Accuracy? Frightening. Hole into hole at 50ft and 75 yards it's fist size. (Match bushing and recrown factory barrel.):what:

    I've never caught the 1911 bug, one of you guys needs to give me one, so I can see what all the excitment is all about!

    Now if there wasn't a more truthful statement.

    Since last Saturday, I've bought two 1911's. First is a Pre-Series II Kimber Custom. Second, was an impulse buy, a SA loaded gun that has been hard chromed and had a set of Crimson Trace laser grips. In three days I spent $1100.

    Now I'm on a mission to get a 10mm 1911.

    That just may be the understatement of the year.

    Oh, wait a sec. That was in response to Trigger's pic and not Master Blaster's pic, wasn't it?
