    Flat MSH + magwell, stat.

    Then a lot of WWB, Wolf, and CCI.

    FWIW that's all personal preferance. Grips and MSH are usually changed so they fit *your* hand better. As to a magwell are you going to be doing IPSC or other "gun games"? If not it's really not needed and IMO detracts from the looks of the basic Mil Spec pistol. That is unless you're using this as a base to build up a super race gun....

    cough bullshit cough they still use the Springfield Armory's seal. Are the 1911-A1's even made in the states? Or is it Croatia?

    only the XD's are made in croatia because it's a croatian gun that springfield bought, they arn't moving their factory's over there or anything
