1911 Grips by Hakan
My friend, Hakan, made these grips from Cocobolo Wood that I sent to him last November. I failed to post pictures due my health problems; my health issues are now history. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do. Regards, Richard

I should add that I bought some wood for Hakan in November, 2006 and these grips were made from the the piece I liked best. I have another load of Cocobolo wood that I will forward to Hakan tomorrow. I hope he has as much luck with this shipment as he did with the last one. Regards, Richard

Not for me.....
Nice guns you all got there...but i surely wont entrust my life on a 1911. Believe me i know....i have been there once. My taurus PT92 serves me well...all the time.

I, too, would trust my Taurus PT 92 more than any 1911. Far too many 1911s, especially the expensive ones seem to jam. When an expensive 1911 does work, it'll probably be more accurate than the PT 92, but reliability is more important than an inch or two of accurucy.
Now if only I was all that accurate, and could stay cool under fire.
Oh, and I do want a 1911.

As to entrusting my life to one I wouldn't be here to annoy people with my posts if it wasn't for a Springfield 1911. The design has lasted so long for a reason....They work. Some better than others but those workhorse models like the old Colts, Springers and the like were built to work and in my experience work well

Finally got a decent carry .45. It's a Detonics Combat Master MkIV. Nice and small! Pachmayr grips, custom(I assume, due to the etching on the bottom of the barrel) jeweling on the chamber. Oh yeah, I polished the feed ramp, due to a chambering issue it had.
Shoots nice. Ejects steel shells fine, but refuses to eject brass. Is this common among 1911s?
12-05-2007, 06:27 AM
That's the first one of those I've seen. ..Yours wont eat rounds with brass casings?
12-05-2007, 03:57 PM
It just won't eject it. Kinda weird. I'll post a new thread.
