My other 1911...
I bought an excellent condition 1927 Sistema Colt with the intent of making it my carry gun. This was my first 1911 custom build. I installed new fire control parts, a beavertail safety, and had the slide milled for Novak sights. All of the add-ons that I feel are needed were done, including beveling the mag well and tightening up the slide/frame fit and fitting a new barrel bushing to get better accuracy. It is 100% reliable and the pistol that I use most.
