Just Purchased New Gold Cup Trophy SS

Well, after debating on which 1911 to buy I purchased several, one of them being a Colt Gold Cup Trophy SS. I disassembled it and cleaned it in preparation of going to the range tomorrow and will post my results.

Can't wait for the range to open tomorrow... I feel like those shoppers in the Mervyn's commercials where it's midnight (or some un-godly hour) and they are looking in the store windows chanting "open, open, open".

I'm already thinking that I'd like another Colt but just can't decide which one.

I'm getting an ambi-safety and perhaps a S&A magwell like I got on my Springfield V16 Longslide and 9mm loaded.

Any other suggestions that I may want to consider for the Gold Cup?

I dislike the current grip safety on the Colt's, and recommend switching it out. If you don't want to spend the money for a smith, get a nice drop in like King's or Wilsons.
Well, then you must begin your search for a Commander Gold Cup :)

The current commander's are very well made, the 1991 stainless has a lot of nice features and the XSE really is a nice gun.
