    I traded two other pistols to get it, but now have a Colt Government 1911 in 9mm. It has the box, docs, etc, and a set of Hogue laser grips, as well as the original grips.

    I now have Colts in small, medium, and large. I need a Commander to match. I have a Commander, but it’s a Kimber, not a Colt.

    It was supposed to be “docs” but was an autocorrect error.

    I was wondering why your new pistol had a disc drive. :mrgreen:

    You realize a full size 1911 in 9mm is considered a rather wimpo gun. Those are only true Colts in 45acp.

    I have found very few pistols that shoot as smoothly as a 9mm 1911. In a full size steel framed 1911 it feels like you are shooting a .22.

    Don't go second rate. Get a Colt. Even if you go wimpo with a 9.

    Hey Nemo,

    You will probably hate my next one. I may be ordering a GSG 1911-22 this weekend......

    Actually, scratch that idea. I’m trying to decrease volume and increase quality. For about $40 more I can get a Ruger MK IV, and stick with the quality theme.

    I'm not going to thud over you guys who know no better and try to improve your societal appearance with items that reduce it.

    You cannot improve without attempting or asking for assistance. If you realize and want guidance, PM me and I shall share it with no one.

    Have you considered one of the conversion units? I have a Nelson and it has been great. Shoot the same grip and same trigger. Converts in less than a minute.
