Unbelieveable shooter, makes me look like a PRO at the range!
Mine is a a steel framed model. I really don't like the idea of a aluminum 1911. Quiet frankly I am puzzled that the Alloy framed SDS cost more.(?) When I bought mine in 99 the Alloy model wasn't even available. I like the STEEL and believe it to be the best frame vice the Alloy.
This gun is put together very nicely. It is a FULLY CUSTOMIZED 1911. Operate one (SDS) and you will see were the money went.
