Very nice. I really like that Wilson CQB Elite. One day I'll get another 1911. My last couple of models just didn't work out so well.

Colt or Dan Wesson inspect both before buying for fit finish and smoothness.. Very few MIM parts in these 2

Springfields are good also ...But they have a lot of MIM parts which i dont like and have been know to fail .. i will say I have never had a springfield MIM part fail..

I have owned most brands out there and those are all i will recommend in the price range

What do you think of the S&W? They seem pretty nice and have had good write ups

Bud White, Well now that you have "baited" us, let's see the "rest" of the 1911 story!................Dick PS: By the way, what part of Michigan do you hail from? Your name is trying to ring a bell in my "memory" from when I had my gunshop in Tawas Township, Michigan
