    Neither of those poor guys stood a chance. And they were just now turning their lives around.

    I've been without a 1911 for a couple years now. Finally ended that streak last week. Picked up a Kimber Pro Carry HD II. Replaced the grips, recoil spring, and plastic mainspring housing. Dawson front sight on the way. I'm happy[​IMG][​IMG]

    Colby-Jack.....very nice. I'm sure you will love it. Really like the mainspring housing....I've been looking for one like that, but in plastic just to lighten a couple of mine an oz or so. Just curious tho, why did you replace the recoil spring? Hotter or softer loads? I reload mild and use a softer spring to accommodate them and for good function of the slide. Let us know how it shoots.

    Some really, really nice weapon pictures out there. Gezzz, do they make a safe large enough for all my wants?
    I know a couple here are not 1911's but it's the only picture I can find of my Springfield TRP Operator.

    beautiful shootin' iron, Eticket!

    Plunker22, yer link is bad... I was lookin' at the new color scheme on a RI Officer's model the other day... as well as a blued full size RI... they invited me to pull the slide back, couldn't believe how well it fit, a whole lot nicer than I expected.

    Ok, I added another 1911 to the collection, does that make me an addict?

    Yes. Sell me the Colts, then you are out of the danger zone.

    LOL, thanks for offering a one step program for addiction but I can't. Each one is my favorite.

    I know that the last one isn't a 1911 but John Moses Browning did have a hand in designing it.

    That is a full Custom built by Blake Johnson.
    It is built on a Nighthawk frame and slide.

    Some really beautiful guns here. I just wanted a basic .45, a workhorse if you will. Bought this one today at a local gun show. Springfield 1911A1. Used, it's in great shape just minor wear in a couple of places. Got two sets of grips (but I like the stock ones), three magazines, box and manual. Found a WWII G.I. shoulder holster at another vendor's table got it for the look, and something to keep the gun in until I find a good CC holster. Took it to the range this evening, it's a good shooter. I was shooting it as well as a couple of guns I've had for a long time. This is my first 1911. DSC09181.JPG DSC09185.JPG

    Nice. My last three 1911's were used and all functioned perfectly. I shoot them some and carry whichever one strikes my fancy as I go out the door. :)

    Just be careful with the 1911s Headspace, they're highly addictive. I started out with 1 'basic workhorse' then 2, then decided I need 4 (1 to pass down for each of my grandsons). Each is unique, but now I have 5. I suppose I'll have to get 3 more so there'll 2 per grandson LOL. When the bug bites you, you'll find your own reasons for having more.
    Love holster too.

    Looks nice with that holster. I bought a 70 series repro. I wanted a basic 1911 blued. Now I want a basic 1911 that is parkerized. There's always one more..
