Thanks for all the feedback. I know that Colt is not having a good time right now. There is talk that they might not be around in a few years, or things will be drastically different. I wanted to get a stainless 1991 to match my blued 1991, that way I'd have a pair of heirloom type Colts to keep in the family should/when these become more difficult to procure.

Everything else on this pistol is very good. tight fit, tight barrel lockup, perfect extractor tension, thumb safety good to go. Trigger is crisp.

I don't want to deal with Colt right now. I think I'm going to visit a local gunsmith, who I've talked to in the past. It should be a simple job to recrown a 1911.
