I still have folks who ask me how to tell if a 1911 has a mechanical firing pin safety. As I have mentioned before I tell them to lock the slide back, turn it over, and look for a plunger. Below a...

Colt had the "duckbill" on several models. My hand is O.K. with it but other people hate it. Below the "duckbill" on a 2002 Colt Defender and then a "beavertail" on a 2010 Defender.

Maybe. I use the mags with the spacer at the back with my 9mm 1911s. A 9mm mag on the left and a 38 Super mag on the right.

Living in the SW I do see 1911s in belts and pants every now and again. They are often engraved and maybe even gold plated with "interesting" grips.

It would be a nice carry round. Compare the 9mm Luger (9x19) on the left below to a 38 Super (9x23SR). Next is the good ol' 45ACP. On the right is a 10mm (10x25).

A Premier II that I bought used. It was made in 1997 according to Baer. It will give me 3 inch groups at 50 yards from a Ransom Rest. Maybe better if I wanted to play with the ammo I used.

They are nice pistols. I have a 2002 in 45ACP (top) and a 2010 in 9mm. I think 2010 may have been the first year for the "beavertail" grip safety. The 2002 has the "duckbill" which my hand is fine...

Have the GCT Lite in 38 Super. I think the differences are the fully adjustable "Bomar" type rear sight, the wide Gold Cup trigger and of course the roll marks. Once in Gold cup land one might also...

For a visual, if photobucket is up, the shortest mag I have is for a little Detonics I bought in 1985 to use as a backup for the Colt Gov which was my main carry. (Too much Miami Vice maybe). Next...

I think it was 1986 that Colt started to head space on the front of the 38 Super and not the semi rim. That would be good news to me. Not sure about the slide as the only Gov in 38 Super I have was...

Also worth a note is besides Colt, Remington, Para, Taurus, SIG, and probably others have used the Series 80 mechanical firing pin safety based off the trigger.
