New VBOB

Ordered it Christmas Eve, came in today. Love it. I've had several other full size Valors, a CBOB and a CCO and this VBOB is my favorite out of them all. A little pricey at a little over $1500 out the door, but it's an amazing 1911. Very impressed with it's quality and it shoots like a dream. After I cleaned it up and lubed it, took it an my (also new) S&W 442 for a spin and it shoots them all in one ragged hole using my 230gr FMJ handloads with WST. This is my only 1911 and the one I like more than any of the others I've owned, which has been around 15.

Enough talking, here's some pics:

$1500ish out the door is actually a good price. Most are lucky to get the 5" SS for close to that price w/o being a blem and after shipping and transfer fees.
