I like either near stock or a pro dressed custom job. Being a lefty, I usually install an ambi safety, springs, grips, etc... but mostly leave it alone. I had a custom build in the 70s and sold it. You know, most of the time it's the shooter the needs improvement, not the pistol. The two 1911s I like are the RIA Tactical and the SA Loaded. Both reasonably priced and serve me well.
