    Wow... I find it very interesting how today's "off the shelf" production 1911's are basically what the custom pistol smith 1911's were in the past.

    Congrats! My R1 Carry Commander was a good shooter out of the box & now it's a superb shooter since I installed an Ed Brown perfection sear, EB disconnector, EB barstock hammer & a Wilson Combat ultramatch trigger. I also polished the surface area of every part but especially the two parts (don't know what they're called) that rotate & push the firing pin block. This was especially important since these are the extra parts that make the series 80 trigger feel like it has some drag to it. I now have a 3.6 lb crisp trigger pull that you couldn't distinguish from a series 70 1911.

    I believe that you’ll find you will have plenty of empty brass after you take it to the range LOL
