    I agree with Zenfly that among production 1911s, Dan Wesson is arguably the best. I think the reason it isn't listed as a choice is because of the small annual production (e.g. 2008 - 2500 units, 2009 - 3000 units, 2010 - projected 3500 units). BTW I voted with my wallet here acquiring two DWs in 2009.

    Now if we're talking semi-custom, perhaps Nighthawk would get my vote although Baer, Wilson, and Brown are all in that top group. Pure full house custom might go to Heirloom Precision, Condition One, or any of a number of other similar gunsmith houses.

    Did those grip safeties come with those DW's or did you out them in? I like the way they look.

    YFZsandrider is correct, those are factory. Matter of fact the only things non-stock are the Greider-Videcki short solid adjustable match triggers and Sarge's grips.

    My Kimber Pro Carry was stolen out of my truck. I needed a quick replacement, didn't have alot of cash, bought a SAM. Paid about $380 for it in 2004. Changed out some parts, solid rod, bushing, springs, did a trigger job on it, and have been shocked at how good it's been. Have about 1000 rds thru it. But, Kimber get's my vote.

    Dan Wesson, Colt and Springfield all make excellent weapons. Dan Wesson is perhaps my favorite. Want to get my hands on an American Classic (Firestorm) and check out the quality. It seems to be getting great reviews for such an inexpensive 1911.

    Other. Wilson Combat or Nighthawk. Shoot one, if you can, and then you will know. They are really great guns.
    Nighthawk

    Wilson's

    I have all and the other...

    Para has it hands down for me. Now, that said, I shoot USPSA Single Stack with a Kimber Gold Match II.

    Still, I'm a southern boy that loves his Para. Get some! You'll never bitch about your good ole NC transplant.

    Dan Wesson 1911's.

    By far the best buy in the handgun market.

    I have a Para SSP 45 Govt model, and a Para Slim Hawg 45 3" model. I think they are great guns for the money, lot of nice features. I did have to correct (2) of the (8) magazines-would not fall clear on eject. The full size has been 100% since day one. The 3" had a few minor quirks I fixed myself, since it has been 100%. Nice triggers, stainless match grade barrels (shoot even better after 800-1000rnds). Eats any ball and HPs I have feed them.
