Before I break my nice, new DW, I'm thinking it might make sense to learn the fine points of disassembling, reassembling, and tinkering with the 1911 on a cheap "beater". Any suggestions? The cheapest I can find on GA or GB is the RIA for just under $300. None of my local shops has anything cheaper, new or used.

Alternatives highly appreciated.

Go with the RIA milspec as your "beater". You may be as surprised by the accuracy, trigger & quality as I was.

BTT

Other possibilities I've been thinking about are Sistema and Griffon (from CDNN). Any thoughts on those?

It seems like Sistema's have become hard to find all of a sudden. Anyone know where they've gone to?
