This IS a 1911 forum, yet I haven’t seen a single complaint about all these wheelgun pictures.

I heartily approve of all the guns posted, but don’t covet any of them. Now, if someone posted a...

I owned an ODI Viking Combat (Seecamp DA trigger on a 1911, same manual of arms as a CZ 75) for a while, also didn’t care for that process. The one CZ 75 I own is SAO.

Very glad it’s back. I like most of the changes, especially the u-notch rear sight, but have yet to see a skeletonized trigger that I like on any 1911.

I have a ‘08 CCO, which was the first year for that model, the slide is Duty Coat, frame anodized. DW went to Duty Treat the following model year.

The Duty Coat still looks pretty good.

Thanks for the correction. I've always been pretty bad with names, only getting worse as I get older. Headed to Athena again today, Mondays are half-price range days for old farts.

The DW mags are made by Checkmate, and you can get blued and SS versions from them for less money. And I believe the unmarked mags sold by Joe's Mag Mania are Checkmate cosmetic seconds.

I think SARCO ended up with a bunch of Para spare parts. I got a set of the P-14 VZ G10 grips from them for $50, cut them down to fit my P12. Would have been $75 from VZ.
