These types of threads can provide an entertaining diversion ... provided one views them with wry humor rather than absolute seriousness. Thus my entry here to this discussion.

Just a footnote: Based on the thumb safety design, the Eagle emblem on slide, and other clues (including the paperwork and list price), I'd be pretty confident that all parts in this 1911 are BP.

It's a close call, with subtle details coming into play.

I think there is definite merit in the arguments favoring a shorter barrel (4" or 4.25").

At the same time, a 5" barrel (9mm) is a joy...
