    You beat me to that and sold the nighthawk I wanted before I could refund my gun fund.

    Man trying to compete with these professional photographers is challenging.

    20201007_132859.jpg mainspring housing is in but the walnut grips i got from highfiguregrips.com.....the bushing side of the holes were not cut deep enough, so they won't sit flush against the frame. Gotta take some material off of them before I can use them. Ivory vz for now.

    ^^ Awsome^^ So, how does it shoot? What do you think about it compared to a NH or GI? How does it measure up?

    I could ask which of the two you were referring to,
    the CC or the Prime.
    However the answer would be the same for both.
    However I shoot the CC better than the Prime
    due primarily to its trigger.
    It is noticeable better then the Prime.
    I’m hoping the prime to get better as it gets more range time.

    The ACW’s build quality,and attention to detail are
    easily onpar with GI and NH, however ACW lags the
    others in options, finish and models they offer.

    I was referring to both. How do you like the fit and finish of them? I'm asking as I've never held or even seen one except here and their website. I would think they are as good or better than a NH or GI?

    I'm planning on ordering a Prime Elite in .45 here in the next month or so. Next summer will feel forever away, but after drooling on these pics, I know it will be worth it.

    You are asking the right person, that's for certain.


    @Dwe has experience, up close and personal, with more top shelf 1911's than I even knew existed. I'm looking forward to reading his ongoing experiences with these ACW beauties.

    I didn't figure that my camera would be up to the task, and it isn't. This is my Charcoal Blue Classic Carry from ACW. If I had to give the color a name, it would be dark grey. You ACW owners know how perfect the flats are; the rounds and the rest of the pistol have 20 additional hours of polish, and it shows. I have other pics, but I think I'll do better if I wait until the sun is shining and do them outdoors sans flash.

    It is my first Commander size with my first ball-cut slide. Later this week, I hope to get better pics.
