    As much as I like my P220, which is a fantastic gun, my local shop just received a Platinum Elite, which I thought was a real letdown. Did not like the fee overall and hated the trigger, but that is just my humble opinion.

    Any Sig I have ever handled or shot was a great gun... except the GSR. Just doesn't stand with Kimbers, Springfields, or my Dan Wessons. All in the same price range.

    if you pay that kind of money let's hope there is no looking back, never had one, but would like to spring for one but want to shoot it first, on the ops question my Kimber ultra covert ll was a very sweet shooting gun, although I found I am not much of a laser guy for pistols.

    I don't want anything hanging on my weapon that does not sling lead. I've shot dozens over the years but have yet to see anything that I liked. Including the CT grips.

    You need to try a Rock River Arms 1911. Shoots like a dream. A little pricey and good luck trying to find one.

    I have no real preference. Have had a Kimber, super sweet 1911, GrandRaptor2, cost me over a grand and I only ever took it to the range one time. Like pulling teeth to do that. Just could not bring myself to shoot it, so I sold it for a couple guns I would shoot.
    Have a Springfield 1911 that I have had for a few years and have never had one problem with, and I want a Para18-9, 1911 9mm. When I get it and get it to the range I will let yall know how it goes.

    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.
