    Sure.

    It's called a Glock. Except, it runs better than the 1911, out of the box, doesn't require smithing to tweak it so it shoots. It shoots all kinds of ammo, unlike the 1911, out of the box. Holds more rounds and is lighter, easier to carry, and conceal.

    :D

    [ducking] :eek::D

    Here you go, but IMHO they are all fugly with the Wilson being the least fugly of the
    bunch and the Spectre and Kimber in a running for the worst thing done to a 1911!

    Kimber made a Gold Match in polymer. Not sure if they still do.
