OK so help the n00b out here. Can these SAO 1911's (Taurus or others) be made DA/SA by a gunsmith, or would it just not be worth the cost/effort?

the 1911 with a double action would make john browning turn over in his grave:?

These are probably the closest to a DA 1911 as you will find. The EAA Witness series has the added advantage of being able to convert between several different calibres. I'm thinking seriously about getting one for teaching new folks with, being able to progress from .22 to 9mm to .45 to 10mm would be awesome.

Hmm, Ok this is news to me. I thought the "standard" 1911 had a DA first shot/SA following shots, like the military Beretta 9mm?
