    An then there is the whole "1911s should be 45" thing, which does resonate a bit with me.
    Me as well. If you don't handload, the 9mm may be better for you, but if you do roll your own or ammo cost isn't a factor, go with the classic!

    Picked it up today and ran some Lee 230 through it. Seems to feed very well, it'll even feed an empty case with no problems. Looks like the extractor is going to need some tuning as I had some failures to return to battery, even through the rounds plunked freely. Also had the slide lock back mid magazine a couple of times so the slide lock might need a look as well. I'll tear it all the way down and check for burrs and clean/lube well before anything else. Machining and Park look great. The slide/frame fit is smooth. I was able to shoot 4" offhand groups at 25 yards without trying too terribly hard. Overall I'm pretty pleased. Once I get the few issures sorted, I'm sure it'll ba a good shooter.
