I like my 2 ACW's as well as all my semi customs, but I think my favorites are still Ed Brown's. I know they dont build but a couple of standard models and the extra machine work is pricey....but they are still my favorite to pull out at the range. And I have one out getting a facelift and re-finish with another going to EB for some upgrades soon. The only 1911's I have spent extra $$ on to mod so far. Not that any are better than the others, but just what we as individuals like best, I think thats what makes this site so interesting is all of us sharing our loves.
