    View attachment 234999 I saw this used CQB posted today by my LGS and got there as quickly as possible. I really like a gray frame and small parts with a black slide. The price didn’t hurt either. Asthetics are subjective and we all know a nice 1911 when we see one. However, do any of you have a preference for ones that may not be commonly seen as preferable or am I the only one with “a type”?

    Blued, or a classic blue-over-stainless two-tone.

    But then, I also like stainless. And black. Oh, and hardchrome! And...

    That's one of my favorites too. You can't get much more "classic" than this one . . . . .

    Nice Gat OP. I love my CQBs!
    My type is not necessarily a brand, but it is has somewhat
    traditional or classic attributes.
    I like the original 1911 in that it has no FCS, flat MSH and a
    long trigger and full thickness grips.
    I take that a bit further in that I prefer clean slides,
    blue or black finish, not coated.
    The Dan Wesson Blue Valor with full thickness grips is my type if you will.

    No! No “type” but I know what I like instantly when I see it. I just feel it deep down in my soul and I have to have it!:sneaky:

    Don't you hate how these 1911's just seem to whisper to you from their glass cases in the gun stores?

    "Yo, Zoid, here I am. You know you've been looking for me. I will fill that hole in your soul safe collection. You won't be complete without me. Take me home with you. You spend more on groceries in a month than I cost. Besides, when do you think you will see another just like me again . . . ? (shut up Wilson, I have his attention right now) . . . "

    Or am I the only one that hears these voices . . . ?

    Don’t really have a type but I do prefer a blued gun. One of my Wilson’s that is AT’d has a gray frame and black slide and it is very sharp looking. Congrats on your new CQB.

    Dude, your gat addiction has been overrun by your WOOD addiction . . . .

    You need to get a grip . . .

    Nevermind, I see you already have . . . . several.

    I should clarify that I am a promiscuous 1911 enthusiast and certainly enjoy a classic blued, black, two tone, etc. I just happen to also really like this non traditional finish and am highly likely to buy one on sight.

    Not the DNA, the tonal quality of course . . .

    And I thought it was a funny meme that would give a "mental image" of the voices you were hearing . . .

    Seriously

    It’s not just about the house but how well the house is furnished.

    I especially like the ones on the no name! @TheCollector

    Typically always high power and ball cuts up front... I am a “shiny” gun guy when it comes to blue, stainless, or Pvd... if it’s cerakote, all black/murdered out guns are my fav. I do enjoy a grey and black gun from time to time.

    Typically a 38 super lover as well...

    Those are typically staples for me if/when ordering a custom gun.

    I’ll be honest though... there are plenty of guns that are not “my type” that I love just as much as the ones that are!
