Excellent work. As good as your polishing was when you first started out, I can tell that you've actually gotten even better.

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.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. By the way, you might be interested in the stainless new production 50AE Desert Eagle I'm expecting next week! I'll have some photos of it to share soon
