    I have a S&W 1911 which I carry sometimes but on a few occasions I noticed that it might be a little bulky sometimes. I purchased a colt defender which is a shorter barrel at 45 cap and the 1911 platform.I find this perfect for me

    Carry a Glock instead of a 1911. To quote Tommy Lee Jones, "Lose that nickle plated sissy pistol and get yourself a Glock."

    Well, there's the word of an expert.

    A Hollywierd actor that was Al Gore's college roommate.


    By the way, he toted a 1911 in a couple of his movies, too. The one that jumps to mind was the movie where he pretended to be a Texas Ranger.

    Why buy plastic when you can buy metal?

    Nothing wrong with a basic 1911 that add-on parts can't fix/improve. Which is what I said before, buy the gun and add to it to get what you want. Are those plastic or ivory grips?

    Ajax fake ivory.

    The first time I cleaned the gun, I sprayed the frame out with Shooter's Choice spray cleaner. When I went to set the frame down, I COULDN'T. The crappy plastic factory grips had melted to my hand! I think they were made out of polystyrene like a model airplane. I threw them away and bought the Ajaxes.

    Ouch. Melting grips are not good.

    1911A1 Colt Series 80 Government Model

    The only thing I have had done to mine is to lighten and smooth the trigger soon after I got it. Last year I switched the collet barrel bushing for a solid one from Ed Brown. No change in accuracy and I no longer have to worry about it breaking.
    I've had this 1911 for at least 25 years with no problems. As long as I feed it properly and do my part it will drive tacks!
