BDM,

My information comes from personal experience. In 2011 I ordered a CQB and BP parts were an option (which I selected on that build).

brzusa.1911,

CQB's built before 2013 did not come with BP parts standard however they could be selected as an option.

brzusa.1911,

You totally nailed it. This is EXCELLENT advice! The only thing I would add here is that shipping a handgun can be very expensive unless you can get the assistance of an FFL holder...

Rob,

That is exactly why I decided several years ago that a full house custom wasn't for me. People waste lots of time and money buying a Colt and then waiting literally years to send it off to...

Forget tritium which dims over time, go with either the F/O or gold bead - whichever you prefer - you can't go wrong either way. The gold bead is 100% maintenance free. The F/O tube will need to be...

I very much appreciate your kind words. We definitely have a difference of opinion on the additional engraving but that's no problem. I hope your wait isn't too long and the pistol is trouble free...

Coop,

You may not intend to sell it but none of us can predict what the future will bring. Even if you never sell the pistol in your lifetime you heir(s) may need to someday. You are paying more...

US1911,

That's exactly why I put the word "oil" in quotes. The wax may not be abrasive but any cloth you use . . . even the softest micro fiber money can buy . . . has the potential to introduce...

Birdy,

That makes sense but for everyone else I would recommend using an "oil" based product instead of a wax for the simple reason that the more you buff the metal, the more you will scratch it. ...

jordanl,

Unfortunately I don't have the time to wipe down a blued gun every few days. If I'm being completely honest with you I don't really have the interest either. As FBF referenced above I'm...

Absolutely! One reason I'll never purchase a blued gun is because of where I live. The infrastructure is old and power failures are common. When it goes out it's out for no less than 12 hours at a...

Pit,

I'm glad to hear your pistol is running as it should. Excellent call on your part to replace the mag catch.

ga28,

The 1911 was specifcally designed from the ground up for the mighty 45 ACP cartridge but that doesn't mean a maker can't put out some troubled guns. Look at for example . . . wait for it ....
