    Clean, simple, classy.
    Just took delivery of a New DW A2. and I have to say what an awesome pistol
    100 rounds of 230 ball down range no hiccups sweet shooter. Of course pic to follow
    The A2 is clean no frills and just classy.
    Thinking Pachmayr signature Grips, and maybe a change of sights
    The current white dot style Novak’s Work and are right on for a combat hold sight picture.
    This pistol is a keeper.

    Love it! And the original grips are awesome! They look right at home on a traditional 1911 such as the A2. Congratulations on a beauty!

    Really like the classic look.

    Agree with 41, like the original grips with that gun.

    What’s really wild is I have been researching reading,pricing researching a semi custom/Custom 9mm 1911 But I keep coming back to the A2 commander. Will power and I need to stay the course

    Congrats, I'm really enjoying my Gov't A2. I'm debating on the Pachmayr's myself. I have an issue with my thumb safety, it wasn't fit properly where it mimics the contour/curvature of the frame. I'll be sending it to John Harrison for that to be replaced. I'm considering some other work also, while it's there with him.

    Got a response back from DW this AM and it will be going out soon for sights. Blacked out rear & Night sight front, Then thinking flat mainspring housing, got the pachmayr’s, So now I need to post up some pics.
    Already thinking frame mods undercut trigger guard, 30 lpi FSC, shorten slide stop bevel frame, then will need to be refinished already exceeding the Valor and a Les Baer. Just can’t leave well enough alone, what’s this forum called 1911 Addicts? Hmmm, may need some group intradiction?

    Just curious, are you having DW apply their black Duty Treat, or re-blue it?
