All Government parts, where mine is all tricked out from the factory.
Why?

Hardballer or SOFTballer???

I've never personally seen a NEW AMThardballer,
but I have loads of experience working on a few of the OLD AMT Hardballers,
trying to get them to function properly.
The AMT SS was so soft that it galled horribly,
even with the best super duper slippery lubes available back in the day.

I've owned, customised and shot IPSC with a few other SS Govt model pistols,
specifically the old [ made in Seattle ] Detonics Combat Master super small pistols.
I've also built about 2 dozen custom Govt type pistols using the old/discontinued Randall SS parts, either with SS slides or blue slides. The Randall SS parts were 17/4 PH, the SS frames single heat treated, and the SS slides DOUBLE heat treated.

The slides were SO hard ...
that I could only mill about .010" off at a time when cutting off the top rail to lighten them.

The frames were SO hard ...
that when I stippled the front of the pistol grip, smoke came out of the dimples.

NO BS ...
the Randalls and the Detonics did NOT have a problem with galling.

One IPSC pistol I built from Randall parts had about 20,000 rds of IPSC Major through it,
and still was tight and accurate.

DAM ...
that is the ONLY Govt model pistol I really regret selling since I took up the Glockenspoiel

Glad to hear that the NEW AMT Hardballer is harder.
The old AMTs I saw were nicely milled and dimensioned pistols,
but too soft for serious work.
of course,
like any other opinion you get from the internet,

I'd rather buy a set.
Remember not a lot of parts on a 1911 are 'drop in'

I decided I'd cut them, I just don't know what I'm going to cover the exposed metal with yet.

Is that a condom?















When you run out of bullets, might as well be safe?

Debate!

Trojan by the looks of it. What's with the raptor head and the AR15 hammer?

Most holo sights are dot sights, do you mean to compare single lens optics(like an eotech) to tube type optics(like an aimpoint)?

In anycase, eotech eotech eotech. Anything with a tube needs to be a scope.(IMO)
