I am in the process of acquiring a 1911 GI Model and I wanted to do a couple small mods.

This is the one I am looking at

1911

How hard is it to take a apart and change the trigger so it looks like this with the holes in it. I see the parts are next to nothing. Or get it stripped down enough to do the color scheme with the OD green bottom part? like below

Look I would like

I believe a gunsmith will furnish and fit a trigger for about 30 dollars, but I definately prefer the solid trigger. I think it is classy.

Save your pennies and buy what you want the first time. You will not be happy otherwise.

If you are planning on keeping the gun a while. What will the extra 5 or 6 bills mean to you down the road 20 years when you have a pistol you like and want. As opposed to something you "settled with."

Cut some corners for a few months, save up some jack and buy that bad boy.

Aside from sporting the ugliest production grips around I am not a fan of the WWII

I have a real USGI and the two feel like completely different animals. That said, any affordable 1911 that has a reasonable amt of quality has its place in the market IMO. JUST like everybody said... we're talking $250 at most for something that will leave its impression on you for years to come. If you bought an $800 gun in light of the $600 and it shot well, was good to you and gave you minimal hassle, would you really miss that $200 over the years???

What if you bought the $600? It wasn't really what you wanted, you weren't happy with it, all the cool kids had the $800 gun, etc. So you end up either selling the $600 gun and you have to buy a replacement now. The loss you are going to take (replacement value-money got fromn the sold gun) will easily equal or surpass you spending that initial $200 and you miss out on the regret. Sounds like a no-brainer.
