Man, I'm so excited - just ordered my first 1911, a Springfield loaded model PX9109L. Anything I need to know? Advice? Stuff to do to it? Stuff to avoid? I'm a 1911 noob, so any advice is greatly appreciated!!!!!

Read my post down near the bottom. If you have any questions, let me know.

I've got the same pistol. It should work out fine for you.

Mine had a really stiff trigger pull. I replaced the factory stuff with a YoBo matched hammer/sear and a Dlask magnesium trigger. (it didn't 'need' these parts, but I wanted them) I used the original parts to build up a parts gun.

Only thing mine 'needed' was a bevel. The bottom edges of the slide were sharp enough to draw blood every time I pulled the trigger. Adjusting my grip would have fixed my problem, but I wasn't going to change what has worked for me for some 20-odd years...it was easier and more fun to cut/file/refinish my gun.
