    Just got in my new DE1911G from magnum research. Pics soon to come, range report soon as i get time, porbly wont be as fansy as most ppl's on here LOL. So far fit and finish is great, great trigger! Already disappointed thought I was supposed to be getting the DE1911G w/o those damn ugly FS on it, the one i got has them on it! Second those ACT mags that came with it make old Nam GI mags seem Godly! ACT mag dont like to go back in the pistol. you gotta hold the mag release and push to one side of the mag to get them in! tried some Wilson combat mags i had laying in the shop they worked fine they 1911 mags should, they shot right out and go in smoothly. I hope the pistol least operates and shoots well, so far everything else as been terrible!

    They are great guns. Trigger is one of the best in their class. You won't be disappointed.

    Heard nothing but good stuff about the DEs. I could care less about the rollmark, but would also prefer one without FCS. Congrats on a solid 1911. :thumb:

    Looking forward to photos and a range review.

    Glad to hear it has a good trigger! That can make or break the initial experience of a new gun for some. :smilie:

    got alot of busy hours between the gunshop, full time college, and the local Sheriff's office. Have one up hopefully by end of the month. put 60 rds through it in the front yard was impressed! beside the ugly FCS! LOL but trigger is very smooth, about 4lbs clean break, nice grouping aprox 3in's at 25 yrds ( mostly me gun can do better i know already) with cheap target ammo(RWS and PMC) after i run my standard 200rd break in ill run my hand loads Post Pics and range when I can (still thinking of what to name her) PS all my firearms have names! LOL

    I've been coming around to light grips on dark guns recently.
