Great and informative Post! I enjoyed it a lot. Just one question. Couldn't ya find even one spot to wiggle a Glock in there somewhere? Those are all very exotic sounding weapons you list and I've only had a chance to hold 2 or three of them in my hand. I'd sure like to be your range assistant next time you put one of these together, you betcha.

Thanks for the effort.

Thanks.

When I get a G34, maybe I'll see what I can do.

I think I speak for the entire group here when I say the following.

Great collection, you son of a B****.

I can't find the Sig X-Five L1 on Sig-Sauer's website.

What is the exact nomenclature of the pistol?

I'll add my words of thanks to the others. I have a SIG X-five Allround that has been "Grayed" so I'm happy to see one of my favourites at the top of your list. I am waiting for the delivery of a SIG P210 Legend Target that based on your comments would move up the list on several counts. The safety has been improved and from what I have read, SIG does a great job on the finish. Add the thumb activated mag release better sights and I suspect the P210 would be up there with the front runners.

I know exactly what you mean about the effort involved in writing at above casual standards. I've done quite a bit of writing and can vouch for the fact that it is hard work. Hemmingway is said to have rewritten passages many times before they got to the editor. One of the qualities of good writing is the show of respect for the readers. Thanks again for all the effort.

Thanks for the kind post.

Good luck with your P210.

Okay bac. Here is the list of things I would do, off the top of my head, for that Beretta Steel I

1.) Cut off any two fingers or toes (thumbs, trigger finger, big toes exempt).
2.) Build an heirloom-quality bookshelf while being stung by bees constantly.
3.) Attack, and, if possible, maim a person of your chosing.
4.) Flip off a box of kittens.
5.) Spray paint your name on any Federal building (no White House, I don't wanna die and I'm pretty sure Obama doesn't mind HIS people having firearms.)

That is a sickeningly good-looking firearm. austin_tx posted a picture of one on TFL a few months back and I had daydreams for weeks.

Gorgeous. How aggressive is the front strap texture?

Not bad at all, but it does give a nice grip.

I've got a pre series 70 GC and a newer GC Trophy.

Both are outstanding, but this test wasn't about 1911s.

Thank you for such an informative post. I have always looked forward to your post when I sign on to the forum since I joined GT. I have steered many folks on other forums to your 1911 Buyer's Guide when I read about somebody in need of 1911 information.
Mike

Thanks Mike, much appreciated.

As for the buyer's guide, the more that read it the better. That took me months to write, on and off, of course.
