Unfortunately I have to agree. A few years ago WA approved a massive public transit initiative that jacked up car tab fees an enormous amount, and large numbers of people protested. The bill's sponsors were like, "What the Hell?!? Didn't any of you read the cost breakdown that was clearly explained in the voter's pamphlets?". Obviously not...

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
