    Forged slide and frame for me. I prefer S.T.I. over all. They cant be beat. You can pay less but you wont get more. 4140 forged carbon steel is the best.

    DS makes some very fine shooting irons.

    back in the good old days i built a GI 1911a1 on a DS frame and slide. it still is a very nice shooter.

    Wow. Nice looking pistol. Lot of money but looks like everything is there on that baby.
    Let us know a range report please, I like that.
