Already got mine. This Baer Custom Carry from Severns Custom ran me about $2600. It has everything I want and nothing I don't. Be jelly.



 :shocked

That pic is seriously harshing my mellow - the gun appears to be levitating several inches above a reflective surface, and casting no shadows.

HSSSSSS. Vampire pistol, begone!
  >:(  :panic

(...Okay, I figured it out. That's a metal range table, under an awning or some other covering, in bright sunlight. Also with a poor DOF on the camera. Still looks freaky.)

Looks like a glass dining table to me, next to a window with a nice view.

Yep, glass patio table on my deck. Nothin' fancy.

I'll add that if I had my druthers I'd skip the front cocking serrations, but when I ordered it Severns Custom had this one in stock as opposed to an indefinite wait for one without FCS. Not a deal breaker IMO but if two 1911's were otherwise identical I'd go with the clean slide.
I'm not saying you should use an M1A for home defense, but I'm also not saying you shouldn't.

I'm the same way. Less is more. Not a dealbreaker, but if I had the option I'd go without.

Seriously looking at Ed Brown. Special Forces 5", chain mail 2 furniture, housing and magwell 2 piece, adjustable night sights, short trigger, stainless frame and gen 3 slide, carbon fiber grips, flush crowned barrel. Hmmm, whole buncha tidbits

For $3-$5000, I would get a bare bones Remington in stainless, break it in, make sure it works. Then get a Slipstream permanent treatment and maybe some work to fix reliability issues if there are any, then use the rest to pay off my credit cards. :thumbup1

Have you ever shot a $3-5k 1911?

Mine is supposed to be somewhere in that range.

A dream 1911?  Les Baer.  'nuff said.  The guy is a southpaw, and he knows how to make it entirely southpaw friendly... meaning all it really needs is a slender lever.  I'd also want a holster with a leather tab that covers the safety, even if he flattens the right-hander side switch.

SJW is not a synonym of "leftists" or "liberals". Left-wing and right-wing positions are based on economics. SJWs are left-authoritarians which means that they are not liberals. Don't paint all leftists or liberals with the same (misguided) brush.

But I thought this was just the 1911 that I want to get, not the best one around.

Ironically, the 1911 models I have shot the most was a Nighthawk model (and also a customized "special" Kimber), so I don't even know what the rest are like since I haven't had much trigger time with them.

I'd go for something like that.  Blued carbon over some rosewood/cocobolo.  I'd keep it simple actually. 

I like elegance through simplicity and to me, the 1911 is an elegant design.
CaliforniaThere are many like it, but this one is mine.

Wow. All of the pistols on his site have a nice, traditional look and seem very functional, without any silliness.

Look at that Basic Fighting Pistol! Very, very nice. I like the MEUSOC rear sight/gold bead combo. Very slick, very functional, very robust.

There's only two reasons I wouldn't hit up the Berryhill, even though the AFP looks nice as heeeeell. One; he isn't accepting new orders, two; its only mods for existing pistols. I'd have to send em all the way from Alberta and back, buy a 1000 dollar pistol, and any warranty work would be a bear. Damn they look pretty though.

After reading this I snorted; I'm about 8 rumnogs in today. God Bless Captain Morgans private stock :panic
