    This is pretty much 1911 perfection to me - Ed Brown Executive Carry Stainless Commander

    It would have to be the gorgeous Wilson Combat CQB, just wish I had that kind of money to spend right now. I will have it someday.

    dream gun

    Lately I've got the hots for a Government Model built on a lightweight frame. I insist on tritium sights. I carry concealed, so I'd want my dream gun to have the edges and corners totally melted, like Clark does. I've never owned a gun with a Brown bobtail, and I think that would be slick for concealment. Got to be NP3 on the bottom, for lubricity, and some other wonder finish on top, but dark color. I don't like extended anything; the standard Colt thumb safety works fine for me. I prefer Pachmayrs for concealment, because the rubber doesn't scrape skin. Slot-headed grip screws. I don't understand the current fashion of using hex screws. I never carry wrenches in my pocket, but I almost always have a Swiss Army knife.

    Talking Dream gun for me

    I would build a 5" Caspian Damascus slide (Recon style) with a Caspian Titanium (recon)frame, A Schumann AET ramped barrel, C&C Tactical Match trigger set, Novak night sights, And Ed Brown and Wilson small parts.

    I am in the middle of building a somewhat less expensive 1911 now. I am using an Essex enhanced SS Frame and Slide set cut for Novak sights, Ed Brown and Wilson small parts, Ed Brown Drop-in Match Barrel/bushing, C&C drop-in trigger set, and Novak night sights.

    I know that some people will say that I'm crazy for using Essex as the basis for this build, but I have checked the quality and found Essex has gotten much better. And with the $$$ I saved on the slide/frame I put in some of the best parts I could get. I have had no problems fitting the parts to the lower. I will be finished with this build by X-Mas. I will give you all a range report after 1000rds have been put through it.

    If I had $3000.00 to spend right now I would get the Night Hawk Custom Vickers Tactical Model. It is IMHO the finest example of a pure combat/carry gun in existence. I will have one someday.

    Talking I am going to get the parts for my Dream gun:mrgreen:

    A new friend is giving me a 5" Caspian Damascus slide to build a gun around. So here is my build list:

    Les Baer Stainless govt match frame(cut for wilson/nowlin ramped barrel)

    Bar-Sto match target ramped barrel

    Caspian damascus hammer and trigger

    MMC adj. rear lo-mount tritium rear with red dots and tritium front set

    EGW stainless (carry bevel-angle bore) match bushing

    Novak "The Answer" 1 peice backstrap (this replaces the grip safety and mainspring housing)

    Wicked Grips custom Damascus Grip pannels

    LaserMax internal laser system

    C&C Tactical match ignition parts

    Wolf springs

    Wilson Combat Bulletproof stainless slide stop and extractor, stainless FPS, stainless pin set,and stainless combat extended ejector

    Yost-Bonitz Stainless plunger tube

    Ed Brown Stainless Tactical extended mag catch

    STI titanium firing pin and hammer strut

    The slide will be flat-topped and serrated 40LPI, the ejection port relief cut modified to the STI style cut and custom engraved by Caspian

    This is going to be a long term project for me. I will star posting pics when I receive the Slide around the 16th. of this month.

    I will call this gun The War Hammer.

    Yes, it is sweet.

    I could have bought a NIghthawk last month - I had the cash and thought about it a long time ago. My interests have drifted a little over the past year - a year ago, I would have jumped at it.

    I used the cash to buy my PS90 in Dec -6 instead.

    I know I sound like a broken record, but I shoot as well or better with my $439 SW99 and Walther P99 than I do with a a911. While I still like 1911s, I couldn't justify spending $2500 on a pistol when I can shoot as well for $439

    Being primarily interested in IPSC competition, I am looking at an Infnity 1911 put together by JPP Imports in Australia. Check out their website - jppimports.com. They use SV parts and make some of the best looking guns I have ever laid envious eyes upon.
