    Obviously haven't had a chance to shoot it yet but yep, very happy. Well worth the $1050 (plus CBI and transfer fees).

    My number is coming up soon. Part of me hopes they have some field grades. I’ve always like the field grades of their M1s and the 1911 have looked decent.
    I like my guns like I like my women: Black and Austrian... and easily traded when a new model comes out.

    They seem to usually have field grades but sporadic selection on service grades. Reading their forums, it looked like members who got the call a week before and a week after me only got offered field or rack grade so I'm pretty happy with their service (but then, I always have been). Honestly, the pics people have been sharing of the field grades got me thinking I should have ordered one of those and saved $100 but I think you'll be happy with it no matter what.

    Still don't know what my RGN was but if they used it for the order number, mine was in the very high 6000s.

    Finally had time for a test firing. Nice tight lockup, ate every magazine I fed it without complaint. The pistol is more accurate than the shooter (although it has been a couple years since I went shooting handguns, the results -- especially the first couple of targets -- were an example of why I tell new shooters that we have to practice regularly).

    Two targets from yesterday:


    For comparison, test shots from my Les Baer TRS (also yesterday):


    No complaints from me.

    So I got my 1911A1 this week. I like it. Remington rand slide and frame. Even says US Army on the frame Shoots real nice. My only “complaint” is the mag kind of sucks, but I can find USGI mags for about $12 at the shows.

    Does your mag have a letter on the top (toe protrusion) of the floorplate? Mine had no other markings on the floorplate, but has an S on the toe, indicating a Scovill production magazine, correct for a WW2 remington rand frame.

    This is my CMP 1911, RR frame, Colt Slide, Colt barrel. I did notice the recoil spring was waaaaaay too light for standard 230gr ball, so I swapped it for a new Govt weight Wilson Combat spring and put the original spring in the hard case.
