    I clicked on the 1911 comparison link on one of the other 1911 sites that Brian put together, and was impressed.

    My current 1911s include a WWII 1945 M1911A1 Remington Rand (that has gone through a Mount Rainier Arsenel thorough refit, and has a magnificent trigger; it's actually my wife's; it belonged to her former husband who passed away and told her NEVER to sell it; he was a senior machinist at Boeing, so I'm not sure if the action and triggerpull is from the arsenel refit or him-but it's a keeper, and gets taken out for exercise a couple of times a year.

    I also have a 2006 "Gen 2" (i.e., high-end OEM cottage industry internal components as specified by Matt McLearn, with receiver, slide and barrel produced in-house by SIG) SIGARMS GSR XO, which has been the recipient of some massaging from 2 of the top gunsmiths at the SIG Custom Shop; it has a very nice 4 lb triggerpull, black diamondwood SIG grips, and a Novak wide-notch plain black rear sight. It's currently serving as a long-term test bed for Check-Mate Industries/CerTac's magazines, and for Bruce Gray/Grayguns' proprietiary extractor.

    Finally, I have a Nighthawk Custom Talon II (i.e., Combat Commander), which I totally spec'ced out to my specifications. I primarily shoot IDPA, and am currently sponsored by Check-Mate Industries.

    I look foward to participation and information sharing on the forum here-I'm also active on the www.1911forum.com and the m1911forum.org.

    Best, Jon
