    I like those Tac ops.

    Gear head- another option and one I would look at if your not wanting to drop a grand plus. Ive had a few Ruger 1911s and with a few upgrades there a great buy. These talo night watchmen have been a want. Can be found for 700ish.

    Not mine, just stole the pic

    Ugh. Stop with the pictures. The Sig competes directly with my Specialist as a rail-and-well gun (I think I'll keep the DW, heh heh) and the Ruger is basically in the same space as my Loaded Springer (smooth frontstrap, night sights, traditional slide). I might prefer that Ruger's finish more than the notoriously soft Parkerizing on the Loaded.

    So I don't need either cause I've got those bases covered......but I still want both of them. So please, stop it :)

    As an aside, more and more I move towards "no front serrations" on 1911s. The Springfield completely shredded a couple of unlined holsters and I don't use the serrations for press-checks on 1911's very often (ever???).

    Dang it.

    A Ruger with ball mill end cuts and and front strap checkering? That magwell doesn't look factory and those grip panels sure aren't. Not really seeing a manufacturer's stamp on the slide. I see a few other bits and pieces have changed too

    Someone had some work done - it's barely a Ruger now :)

    Was looking at this thread this week thinking about picking up a 1911 for myself (traditionally a Glock guy). Stumbled upon a used SA TRP for $1,100 at one of the local shops and decided to bring it home. This is my first 1911 and .45



    A little wear on the expected locations. Prior owner obviously shot it.





    The only thing I don't care for is the sights, but I got over that once I learned that I can get a rear U-notch / front fiber optic set of sights from Harrison Custom ( https://shop.harrisoncustom.com/hd-0...ice-rear-sight )

    Just my opinion, but John Harrison is the best when it comes to 1911 custom stuff. He did all the work on my Ruger shown above - except the grips.
