I finally picked up the 1911PD today. I'm the 3rd owner. First guy never shot it; second guy put 50 rds through it and traded it. Hoping 3rd time is a charm. Got it for $650 and it doesn't have a mark on it yet! Nice trigger eventhough it isn't as light as my '70 series, but it's tighter, and has a good beaver tail (my Colt bites the hand that feeds it). Great looking gun! Me thinks the guide rod may have to go though!
