Actually, I have a few. I've looked at one of your models at a Cabelas once, but I noticed a couple of things that made it stand out as a bit strange:

1. The cocking serrations were milled further back on the slide than normal, cutting into the thumb safety notch. I know the very, very early M1911 pistols were like that, but not the later ones such as the 1917/early 1918 models your pistols try to replicate.

2. The barrel was longer than normal and stuck out from the barrel bushing a noticeable amount.

3. It had a M1911A1 slide stop and flat-sided hammer on it.

Aside from those few issues I thought it looked great, especially the blued finish with the proper vertical direction of the sanding "grain" on the grip frame (something Colt failed to do with their replica).

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.
