    here are some of my before and after shots of my latest 1911.

    American Classic Commander. hard chrome finish. did some minor modifications to the triggerguard by undercutting it, countersunk the slide release pin hole, beveled all hard edges by smoothing them. bead blasted and refinished the metal added new grips, SS grip screws, recontoured the grip safety, new slide release lever, new thumb safety.

    Since I have a M1A from Sprinfield coming I figured I would stick with Sprinfield for my 1911, The Range officer IMO is the best 1911 for the money on the market. I just love it.

    the RO is a very nice pistol indeed! and what you get for the price is definately a bargain.

    i have owned many SA 1911's over the years and my very first 1911 was a SA i bought over 25 years ago. SA makes some really nice pistols.

    I'm with you Gumpy.
    My wrist are so ate up with tendonitis that the recoil of the 45 is uncomfortable but if these guys keep posting these pictures, I may have to buy one.
    1911 is my all time favorite pistol. Can't go wrong with over 100 years of proven success. Besides that, the newer ones are sooo pretty.

    Here is mine. It was left to me by my Dad. It is a WWII era Remington Rand that was adapted to Bullseye shooting back in the early 60's. He used it till the early 70's when it was set aside for a GoldCup. Shes a little loose, and sloppy, and its getting pretty old, so I don't shoot it much. Its a little glimpse into how these old war time 1911's were just old guns back in the day. Noone would ever mod one like that now!!!

    I figured that if consistency is key then a SIG 1911 Commander bobtail for carry (post 70) and a SIG 1911 Railed Commander with a Laser/Light for home defense is perfect.
