Serious question to you guys – everyone knows that I have a 9mm 1911 that I love to death, and in my search for a “gun buy” that makes logical sense, I want a duplicate gun. This follows rationally along the 2 is 1 and 1 is none school of thought, and also helps keep cost down since I have holsters, mag holders, etc for a single stack 9mm 1911. Anyway, here’s the part where I draw aggro from 1911 fanboys:

I have the opportunity to buy the gun pictured. But if I do, I’m going to have it modified with Novak rear sights, a fiber optic front sight, skeletonized speed trigger, beavertail grip safety, etc. Yes, it’s a pre-70 series Colt Commander, but in the configuration as pictured, it’s nothing more than a blank slate on which to create a gun.
My other option is to simply buy another Para LTC in 9mm from the factory, which already comes in the configuration I’d want it in, save it lacks the fiber optic front sight, which is remedied easily enough. Thoughts? Hate mail?
