More convincing.....

I apologize for the following over-simplified but true dramatization.

A friend of mine purchased a Springfield recently, nice piece, had some ok parts, nice trigger and hammer, rosewood grips, but the 2-piece guide rod I did not like, it had fixed Novak's and a standard barrel. He will have to invest in an FLGR, new barrel (and fitting), slide work, and adjustable sights, just to make it close to my DW, and when he's done, he'll have over $1000 in it in parts -alone-, not to mention the 'smithing. It still won't be a DW.

I don't want to sound like I'm frothing at the mouth, but I did my research before I purchased my DW, and I do not regret it one bit. I have no experience with post-CZ acquisition guns, will leave that to others to tackle. Also, unless you have Dave S. give -any- 1911 a "reliability" job, I'd not want to use it as CCW, personally I use a 640PD. -Harmon
