Bought a 1911A1 today, get to pick it up tomorrowI told you all I was going to get a SA, well, I did. I ended up buying one slightly different than originally planned. Still don't have another digital camera yet so, I shamelessly stole a link so you can get an idea of the gun;
http://www.springfield-armory.com/armor ... ktype=1911

When you click on 'custom' on the 1911A1 list you'll see a Rob Leatham custom. Mine is just like it except reversed, SS slide and Blued frame. Got it(Less than fifty rounds through it) a Trikon Steel case, seven spare magazines and the papers for $1,000.00.

Here's the list of mods;
1911-A1 Competition Package: ................................................................................................................................................................. *$1,525.00
Upgrade your existing 1911-A1 pistol to competition specifications including match barrel, bushing and trigger parts.
Tighten slide to frame fit; install national match .45ACP barrel & bushing (bushing in 5" 1911-A1 pistols only, shorter models receive match bull
barrel system), low mount Springfield fully adjustable rear sight, dovetail front sight, custom fit beavertail grip safety, match speed trigger, custom
match hammer & sear, extended ambidextrous thumb safety, full length guide rod, extended magazine release, heavy duty recoil spring & buffer
system (buffer system in full length pistols only), extra power firing pin spring; recut barrel throat & polish feed ramp; tune extractor; carry bevel all
sharp edges of pistol; deburr complete pistol internally; smoothly tuned 3.5# trigger pull; lower & flare ejection port; bevel & polish magazine well;
parkerize or blue complete pistol; two 7 round magazines with slam pads.

Heck, I couldn't build one that cheap. Only need to change a few things(Get rid of the full-length guide-rod, change the grips, get another front sight, it's got a green glow-type on it right now. I want something solid.)
Other than that it has everything the 1911 that was stolen had.

Must be getting lazy in my Retirement.

Well charlie, I needed another carrygun and a collectible Ithaca wouldn't work. I will tell you about one that really disappointed me, the new Remington 1911 R1. From all I've been able to glean from Skelton's article and Rems. website, parts are proprietary.

If you read the FAQs Charlie you get the distinct impression that only Remington parts will fit.

Having had several firearm's stolen by someone I cared for is a terrible feeling. I understand how you feel as you replace them.
I'm curious about the Remington myself as I once carried a Remington Rand in the Army.
