Haven't shot it yet but it is pretty sweet! Trigger is great and the adjustable night sights are pretty cool. Anybody else got one?

Don't know why it looks that way in the pic. Looks fine in real life. Thanks guys! I'll try and shoot it this week. Still haven't got a round out of it yet.

Here's a pic of mine. I hated the ultra thin grips so swapped them for a set of S&A black rosewood. The trigger is an STI carbon fiber/titanium I had my gunsmith install when he cleaned up the 9.5# trigger pull it came back from SA with after I sent it in for repairs when the thumb safety broke after 20 rounds. It's now one of my favorite 1911's and accurate as all hell.

Wow DavidC!!! I like that, especially the trigger. Did you replace that yourself? If so, where did you get the trigger?

Triggers are a pretty simple swap; I didn't do this one, but I've done may others. I have that same trigger in a half dozen 1911's. I get them from Brownell's, but it would appear that STI has decided not to make them any more. Brownells

Damn. I'll have to find another trigger to use in future guns.
