    I agree and a worn 1911 looks good to me but this Colt is new and hasn't seen a holster yet. The springer is my current carry piece.

    I agree, I was about to look at Colts, but this Sig was so pretty! How could I resist?

    There was a Marine Colt for sale/trade on another site and it took all I had not to trade my nicest 1911 for it. But it was touch and go.

    It's a terrible, gut wrenching addiction isn't it?

    TRP Operator during a local IDPA match. I traded it straight up with a detective for a DW Specialist and really regret it. TRPs are excellent quality for the price.

    I picked up another Springer the other day. It's got some wear and tear but it's tight. It had a full length guide rod and I changed it back like John Moses intended. It also had some kind of long and fancy trigger in it and I put a short one in it's place. Now I need to get rid of that beaver tail and put a spur hammer back in it.

    Well, I just sold my Glock 30SF, and purchased this Springfield Mil Spec. I can't wait to get to the range, I did a detail strip/cleaning yesterday, and she's ready to go. I've picked up a couple of Chip McCormick Power Mag 8 rounders, (that'll at least get me started).

    Yikes! I attended one "real" IDPA match at a club on Cape Cod years ago and there were some very trick 1911s. Yours looks like one of them! It was a very well run match (Bass River R&G) and would love to participate, but working retail I almost never have a weekend off.

    Such is my life as well since I started working my second job at the grocery store. I need to get my 1911 out to the range more.

    Haven't been posting much lately,but thought I'd post a couple of my latest acquisitions. The top is the ria longslide,the bottom another commander I picked up at a local pawnshop, longslide didn't photograph well , black gun black grips , I have a set of walnut grips for it,but the black rubber one are more comfortable.

    Something a little different...This one has 2 documented tours in Vietnam, 63/64 and 67/68. My uncle was drafted in 1950, went in as an E-1, came out in 1976 as an O-5. straight leg infantry the whole time. He carried this one in both tours, once as an advisor to a S Vietnamese infantry battalion in 63/64, and again in 67/68 as a Bn XO in the 23rdID(Americal Division). I have his a military history documenting his service down to company level here somewhere but can`t find it at the moment. For those who`ve studied the Vietnam conflict, the 23rd was Lt Calley`s division, and due to this there are a lot of veterans who don`t readily admit to being in the 23rd. My uncle left Vietnam shortly before the My Lai incident. He claimed it was the best unit he ever served with and the uniform we buried him in had that unit patch on it.
    I`m not much of a photographer so please forgive me, lol.
    The pistol is a `44 mfg Remington from the first run that year. The slide/barrel is late WWII Colt replacement parts and was supposedly put on it by a unit armorer after the 2nd tour. I`d love to have the original top end as he went thru the Tet Offensive in `68. The pistol had a set of stag grips on it that my dad changed out to the brown plastic one`s on it now when he came into possession of it after his brother died in 2009. He still has the grips that were on it. We have no clue what happened to the holster, but may find it soon since my aunt recently died and my cousins are slowly cleaning the house out.

    image.jpeg O image.jpeg This gun is so fun to shoot. Just points so naturally. This was shot just at 12 yards. One of the best things about a 1911 is they seem to get better with age.
