The Glock 19 is a fine gun and has been the baseline standard in CCW guns for 30 years... but I would never sell a Browning Hi-Power for one as those are climbing rapidly in value and are still excellent defense guns in their own right.

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.
