    I ordered mine with charcoal blued small parts. They won't be polished as smooth as the rest of the pistol, and therefore take on a bit different color, but I wasn't fond of the color of the nitre blue.

    You introduced me to GI, but I would suggest either the Les Baer Monolith or the Guncrafter Monolith. If price is not an issue, I'd suggest the GI Monolith. And if money is really not an issue, then buy one for me while you're at it

    So, a couple things popped in the classifieds caught my eye...


    Next is a Staccato C Duo. This place is really pounding my wallet. :o.o:

    To answer the original question, my next 1911 will be from Wilson Combat and will have a front bushing, checkering on the MSH and the front strap, a gold bead front sight, and no front serrations. Whichever model that happens to be -- or can be modified to be like that. The stock grips will have to go, too. But I want the goodness that is in a high-end semi-custom 1911 plus a product incorporating the knowledge base and enthusiasm for the design that I see from Wilson Combat. If Wilson Combat goes out of business in the meantime, I will get something similar from Ed Brown, probably a Special Forces model.

    I ordered an ACW Prime Elite with an adjustable rear sight last week and was given a delivery date of May 3rd. Last month I bought a Fusion 9mm long slide to hold me over.

    More USGI 1911, that way I can tell my wife I am buying relics to preserve century-old history, not range toys.

    Want a single stack carry gun? The DW Guardian in 9mm or 38 Super is good.

    Double stack 9mm for carry? I love the EDC X9 but it’s not a true 1911.

    45ACP? Not a fan of commander LW 45s...I like them full size 1911 or full size 2011.

    I’m also an oddball like OldCuz and will say “get a 1911 steel commander in 10mm” if you don’t mind a little recoil.

    My next 1911 is a Chambers WMG in 9mm. A future 1911 WMG in 45ACP is inevitable...

    Next for me will most likely be either a Nighthawk double stack 9mm or a Ruger Koenig in 45.

    Well... picking this baby up tomorrow. So technically this is next...

    Buttttt, I'm putting an order in for a acw brimstone today as well... however I will wait for that one to be made for me. I was thinking about getting dlp for it, but their bluing is done so well, I'm gonna get that instead.

    I was thinking getting it in 9mm, but I think I'll stick to 45. I don't think a classic 1911 was made for any other caliber than what mr browning designed it for.

    Acw does have that sweet 2011 so I might do that in the near future. Or a scadatto or whatever its called. Lol

    I'm on the fence about which one will be next. DW Guardian or Vigil Commander or Master Carry or Super Carry Pro. Passed on a Master Carry Pro online today at a great price but had 2nd thoughts because the front bottom of the laser grip seems to not cover the frame as it should. I want a laser grip. All have a small black line showing which I think is the gasket material below. Super Carry Pros have the wood grip that fits perfectly and covers the frame underneath completely. So I am leaning towards one of those now. It seems like at the $1200 price point, fit and finish should not have that bit going on with the grip.

    So guys....DW Guardian or Super Carry Pro?

    It's not a matter what we can afford, it's what we can justify...I try not to think about things I can't afford, kind of like women I can't attract. lol

    I want a 5 inch light weight - the shoot-ability of the 5 inch, but minus a few ounces!

    Having a bit of a hard time with my next purchase.

    I have a 10mm dan wesson razorback
    I have an accuracy x currently being built in 45.
    My next 1911 I'm thinking between 3 or 4 different ideas.

    Korth prs 4 inch 9mm "1911" for something completely different
    A cabot nero 9mm
    The new nighthawk double stack with built in compensator.
    Or a build "idea" basically (hear me out its hilariously awful)
    Colt combat unit railed 1911
    Swap a few parts to make it 60s or 70s "period correct"
    Add a threaded barrel
    Add a supressor
    Add a scope rail
    Add a period correct pistol scope
    Add period correct bipod

    Bam! Now it looks like something the cia wouldve used in Cuba if given the chance. Stupid? Very. But I always say, I'm 1k away from having more money than brains.
