I currently have or have owned a Dan Wesson Pointman7, Colt GoldCup, Colt Commander, Sig Nightmare, Ruger SR1911, a couple of Kimbers and even owned a couple clunkers that looked liked 1911s on the outside but were anything but on the inside.
Recently I picked up a Desert Eagle 1911c in like new condition. I have put 500 rounds through it and absolutely love it. It is probably the tightest 1911 that I have ever owned and though very tight some times hurts function, this little Isreal made 1911 eats everything that it's fed. The 1911s have always been the most accurate semi autos when I was the guy pulling the trigger. Yesterday afternoon I took my Blackhawk 44 and the DE-1911c out for a shoot. I was very surprised when the groups from the 45 @ 25 yards were equal to my best hunting load shot in the 44 Blackhawk. I have never shot that well with a gun purchased for the purpose of CC.
I ran out to Brownells and picked up a set of night sights and installed them before yesterday's shoot. Last night when I turned out the bedroom light it was the DE 1911's sights that were shining on my night stand. I'm pretty sure I heard the sound of whimpering coming from my dresser drawer where the dethroned FNS-40 spent the night. It's not alone though as there is a 40 cal Glock 22 in that drawer too......somewhere.
