I really like that Iver Johnson, I think that will be my next 1911. On the flipside that STI GI would be a go if they didn't have to post GI on the side. Also might have to pickup the GI enhanced with the beavertail, I normally hate guns with beavertails, but most also have FCS, but that Para looks good.

How could you leave out this beauty? Can there be any doubt that Nighthawk Custom has gone commercial?

The STI GI speaks to me.
I wonder where it's made.

Didn't Colt play with making a DA 1911 before?
The Colt Double Eagle comes to mind.

For the most part there isn't much on that site that does anything for me.
One gun I wish someone would make it a match grade GI gun that is a production gun.
Something like a SA Milspec, but with hand fitted bushing, barrel, and slide.

+1

I would love a nice clean 1911 with a crisp trigger, sights like the Mil Spec or the current Colts and a basic accurizing job from the factory. Polished and blued would be icing, but I could live with plain.

I like the looks of the Colt.

I like the looks of the Colt.

It actually has lines similar to the old Double Eagle. The new model looks better, but you can clearly see the similarities.

Sti is made in georgetown tx. Just north of austin.

except for the Spartan and the Texican.
The GI is probably an Armscor, which is where the Spartan is made.

STI International, Inc. manufactures all of its own components except pins, springs, scopes, and our outsourced firearms, the Spartan and the Texican.

I highly doubt STI will build the GI model. It will probably be made in the Philippines.

I handled the new Colt double action at SHOT. It is dimensionally much closer to a 1911 than the Double Eagle, which is good. The trigger pull was pretty long and heavy though. It was smooth, but was too long and heavy.

Time to buy an Ed Brown - my favorite from the Shot Show!

For some reason, that new Brown doesn't do it for me. :dunno:

I'd take it without the roll mark or front serrations.

I mentioned the same thing when I was at SHOT, and he told me to just order it any way I want it, being as they are a custom shop and all. Oh yeah... :supergrin:

You could be right. I think its alot better looking than the special forces. I am not too wild about all the names manufactures put on the guns.
Although I don't buy my 1911s by looks. I am not a collector by any stretch. I am a competitive shooter and I buy guns for competition so they don't look good for long. But I would kill for your collection...........:cool:

I agree. I was commenting on the over all look of the gun. I hate the gimmicky crap that goes into the 1911 world. Tacticool this special forces that. Just build a nice 1911 with out the billboards and you will sell some guns. Valor is a good example.

I just don't like having someone's name on my 1911's slide.

I don't mind a small logo, or model designation.
While I am a fan of Kimber, their logo is just silly.

The last 1911 I bought only had a small eagle on the slide about a 1/2"X1/4", and a single line of small text with the makers name. It was one of the cleanest slides I've ever seen. I think the only one that could beat it would be a Dan Wesson.
