My pretty basic Stainless Colt Mk IV Series 80.The only after market part is the "Tick" mounting rail for the Insite Technologies SSG-1 light and the ambi extended safety.

Recently traded my Springer Milspec for a Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II. Over 1k through it and I couldn't be happier. (And yes, that's the muzzle of my new Mini to the bottom left. )

Kimber Pro-Carry Stainless & Nyko Perfect Shot



Just comparing the size and angles of the Perfect Shot to my Kimber.

If you're into video games, this is the best aftermarket device for the wii that I have ever seen. I have killed countless zombies with it in House of The Dead 2&3. The only dimension that is different is the grip. It is the width of a double-stack due to the slide actually fitting the wiimote in it.

The Pro-Carry is an excellent carry gun. I can conceal it under a t-shirt with an IWB holster. (I am only 160 lbs.) It is light enough to carry all day every day.

I got rid of my Colt Commander 9 mm and bought a Springfield Ultra Compact 1911 .45 about 10 years ago; it is the best handling handgun of the many I've owned and I thought it would be a good carry gun; now its too heavy (or I'm too old with too much arthritis) and I've given thought to a Beretta Cheetah .380 (fits my hand just as well as the SA Ultra, but weighs much less).

I switched to a revolver in 44 Special. Same basic ballistics with the same weight bullet, only slightly smaller in diameter.

40 years ago I had a S&W Post Office model revolver in .45 ACP (loaded with 2 half-moon clips); it had been worked over by a gunsmith for trigger smoothness, had a grip spacer, etc. It was light, pretty sweet, and I used it on patrol and to remove ground squirrels from grass airstrips. Sorry I sold that one.
