I'll take either of the first two, although the Nighthawk suffers from bad photography.

True but mammoth is considerably more expensive and to my mind, not as attractive. Other cheaper alternatives are synthetic ivory and bone.

They seem to do good work, however, they can't sell you ivory grips unless you live in the same state. Interstate sales of ivory was banned a few years ago.:(

I think Rob had a lot to do with the Vintage Classic. Each has its own merits. The most obvious difference is a traditional high polish blue vs the worn blue look of the Cabot. I don't have one of...

Saw my first 4.25 Ronin today. It was a 9mm. It is reminiscent of the two tone guns, that were the rage back in the seventies. It seemed well made, though not a fan of the ubiquitous red plastic...

Keep in mind, those grips used screws with wider than normal heads. They work with conventional screws but they dont fill the hole as completely. If you need the screws, you might be able to get...

I fear, based on their multitude of full page ads, that my money will be going to their advertising budget rather than to quality control.

Of the choices, Dan Wesson. I refer to it as an Ed Brown with a $1000 discount. You might also look at the new Springfield Armory Ronin. They just came out with a commander version.

You can spend more money (and I have) but hard to beat a Dan Wesson. Nice looking 1911.

At last count, I have twenty four 1911's. Not one of them has adjustable sights. I guess that states my preference. I think adjustable sights detract from the clean lines of a1911. If the fixed...

I had a Sig Fastback Carry, which was a nice gun. Sold it as I recall to fund something more expensive. The one odd thing I found about all Sig 1911's was that sharp point on the rear of the ejection...

I too recommend the Springfield in that price range. Good solid gun and a great platform for any custom work down the line.

My choices are purely cosmetic. I would go with the snakeskin (Kobra) serrations all around, the flush cut muzzle, the beveled slide stop hole but leave the end of the slide stop rounded. I like the...

Forgot to mention, I was shooting under cover but at one point, I stepped out into the sun. That gold beat front sight was shining like a spotlight, almost blinding. Think it's definitely a keeper.

Nighthawk Thunder Ranch

Picked it up last Thursday and took it to the range early yesterday morning. Ran about 50 rounds through it using a variety of magazines, some quality, some not so quality. The Nighthawk never missed...

I have both and I really can't get enthused about the Wilson. Nothing wrong with the CQB I have but for me, it just doesn't have the soul of some of my other 1911's. When I head for the range, I'm...
