    well as an example--the ONLY stock CZ that I own is a Shadow-2, does that tell ya anything about my idea on improving trigger action, accuracy and handling while still maintianing exceptional reliability?
    most of my 1911 have also had trigger work done but then again???

    Is that the Hildabeast approved anti cell phone/anti Blackberry hammer? Just because it is Union Labor approved doesn’t automatically qualify it for destruction of electronic data. . . . .

    And muddcatt54, I think Blue is making a point that Glocks don’t have hammers. I’m sure you posted your comment as sarcasm but just in case . . .

    Grips or sights are typically what I tinker with. On a polymer gun, like the one I just bought, there ain't much to tinker with. On a 1911, there is plenty to keep somebody busy if they wanted to do that.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Unless you buy a Taurus PT 1911...those babies are already loaded up with your typical "aftermarket" doodads! I love mine for sure!

    True but then that's not anything special now in the 1911 market in even modestly priced weapons.
    the RIA Ultra MAY be the best set up 1911 out there for the bucks, course now you got to upgrade from the GI model, same with ATI, and Citadel. Springfield, the Ruger SR1911 while bit higher priced also for stainless steel 1911 with outstanding customer Support is another well set up 1911.
    Here is a picture of my cheap old stripped RIA 1911 it comes stock with ambi safety, mag well, fully adjustable rear sight, fiber optic front sight, vent trigger, Commander style hammer, VZ G-10 grips, and even had a partridge in the box.--oH and its a 10 MM as well, they do make them in 9 MM and 45 acp for those with soft hands as well.
    cost if I remember right is about 450 or so?

    as Clint said "A man must know his limitations" and this is so true when it comes to working on your firearms and changing parts, there is a time to say hey I need to pay someone to do this if you really want to make the change.

    I thought Clint said the question I should ask myself is “did he fire all his ammo or does he have a round or two left? I’m a punk and I really need to know . . .

    For me personally I could see replacing broken parts with aftermarket, but not fine functioning ones. Of course that would be only on guns I use for sport. If it were a personal defense gun I'll keep it stock, with the exception of some pinky extender magazine base plates. If I ever have to use a gun in defense I'm not going to let the prosecutor point to a skeletonized glock slide, gold barrel, flat faced skeletonized trigger, flared magwell, and aggressive stippling and claim I was out there looking for a fight or a reason to shoot. I'm not about to make their case that easy. Heck, give me a gun with a 15 pound trigger pull. I know with adrenaline I wouldn't even feel it, but I could sure make the case that I had to fear reasonably well enough to overcome that heavy trigger. Just my .02.
