    Agreed. If a dude doesn't get turned on by hot women and gets turned on by other dudes, I can't begin to understand it but that's his issue not mine. The government should just stop defining...

    Yes, all SCGs now have front strap checkering. They have been doing that for a couple years.

    The ones with the Bomar-style rear sight are still set further back than I would like. This is due to...

    Good luck, I hope you find one. Most online sellers are listing them from $1700-$2000, but once in a while you'll see one in the $1500-$1600 range and those go quick. Newer ones have checkered...

    Nah, it wasn't me. I already have two, which I bought for really good prices. But nothing like that price -- the dealer probably lost about $600 on that gun, but obviously took a risk by starting a...

    My Rail Gun is pretty much good to go as is, but it's a newer generation. I think Evolution Armory is a good choice, they seem willing to listen to customer input and have a reputation for quality...

    And there are deals to be had. I just saw a brand new Special Combat Government go for $900 on Gunbroker in a penny auction. I guarantee the dealer lost money on that sale.

    Sorry, I don't. Like I said it still might not quite fit your criteria, but I mentioned it because it gets you into a gun with a mag well within the normal grip frame length unlike most 1911s with...

    It still might not fit your criteria, but the Colt Combat Unit CCO model has a grip frame about the same size as a regular Government/Commander grip frame, only with a mag well attached.

    Before I start carrying a gun I shoot at least 500 rounds through it, usually more, to ensure proper function. After that I shoot it a few times a year. Same with my bedside gun. The practice gun...

    I have short thumbs and my right one was broken pretty badly years ago -- I have to rotate the gun a little anyway so I don't typically use grip panels with a scoop. I can tolerate a shallow one...

    I assume you meant you are leery of the external extractor on the SIG? SIG should know how to make external extractors work in their guns since they've been doing it long enough. But S&W probably...

    The folks listing that pistol are great to work with too, I've done business with them several times. I've viewed that particular listing a bunch of times considering a purchase.

    I had a 336 tuned up by Mic McPherson years ago and it made all the difference in how the action and loading gate operated. Unfortunately Mic is no longer taking work, but there are probably other...

    It's all a matter of individual experience. For example, Sensei had a bunch of trouble with his 9mm Colt Combat Unit Pistol and it probably soured him on Colts forever. I on the other hand have had...

    I'm still a little leery of anything smaller than a Commander/CCO because it just gets too far away from the 1911 specification. The Colt Combat Unit CCO is a nice package and is priced within your...

    And prepare to wait.

    John Harrison's work is top notch but his waiting list is pretty long. He will take on certain small jobs that use his parts and don't require milling.

    Seems like we keep revisiting this theme over and over here. There are valid reasons to spend more on a 1911, but you can get one that works for under $800. The basic Colts -- Series 80 Government,...
