    Nice.

    Had a CQB; over-rated in my book. Wouldn't mind the Operator, but I have five 1911's and I think I'm gonna stop there.

    Way to go keepin' the ARs simple. I've got a plain jane version, then my heavy camera whore. :hsd:

    Agreed. I also like the cocobolo on the CQB, but hey, that's just me.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, PT is :greddy: .

    I was thinking about a CQB, but I can't really justify the extra cost. My next 1911 will probably be an operator

    PT, dude, don't do it! Honestly. I build the things. CQB's ain't shit when you know something about 1911's. I hate to knock them, but, hell, it's the truth. You can spend $350 on a RIA, put $400 and about 12-15 hours worth of work (if you know what you are doing) and build a better pistol.

    Wilson brags about time spent on pistols, but I rolled my eyes at them when shooting a build beside their gun. Others laughed at Wilson, too, when shooting the gun I built. Mass production (even on a small scale) will never beat a patient, home honed job.

    Yeah, the OD/black is pretty, but hell, DuraCoat is just as durable and makes a decent copy in color scheme. I've done it.

    Essentially, it's your money. You can say, "Oooh, I've got a Wilson CQB!" and others will ooooh and aaaah. However, you can say, "Look at this 1911 I built" and then, you will have other's RESPECT. The choice is yours.

    I said I was THINKING about it. And I am not a gunsmith, I am a shooter.

    Besides...no one gives a fuck what gun you have. You get respect by being a good shooter.

    Guess I'm not getting any respect anytime soon, then. I just put together AR's from time to time.
