I swapped out the trigger for a harrison design trigger and the arched MSH for a Flat Ed Brown MSH. Really like this gun.

Do they not make the SS frames in Brazil? My parked milspec says it is made in Brazil, this SS one does not. Definitely a tighter fit on this one as well with no side-side play in the slide/frame.

Cannot wait to shoot it!

Both very nice 1911s. Are you all about the milspecs or are you into all the 1911s? Just curious.

I have a Dan Wesson CBOB and a SA 9mm EMP as well.

I really like the simplicity of the milspecs for a full size plain jane pistol though. Good quality, with just about all of the upgrades I want. It's easy to change out the trigger and MSH.

Only thing I might want to add are night sights.

They are made in Brazil. My understanding is that an "N" prefix on the serial number indicates assembly in Brazil, while an "NM" prefix indicates assembly in America. The NM is more desirable.

I've been eyeing the EMP. I need a CCW gun. How do you like it?

I love the mil spec! Congrats on the purchase. I like em right out of the box. Just upgrade the mags that's it for me. Maybe grips too

I love it. It needed a break in but it is working just fine and it wasnt too bad in the break in. Still picky about which hollow points it likes though. I wrote up a review about it on my blog www.minutemanreview.com
