    Talking New Puppy

    This new puppy is a S&W 1911 PD 41/4" barrel. I put some custom grips on with some stainless steel allen screws. Unfired in the photo, but that will change tomorrow.

    No. It's profoundly black. The flat sides of the pistol are polished to glass smoothness - all other surfaces are parkerized.

    I'd never seen a pistol with this finish before I bought this one. I called Springfield and they said it was a typical Mil-Spec Ultra-compact - nothing special.

    The gun shop I bought it from claimed they had done nothing to it. It was new when I bought it.

    I've been lucky - in spite of all the horror stories of short 1911's being unreliable, this one handles hollow-point as easy as FMJ.

    Yes, U are lucky. I don't think I would ever try a small 1911 like that after all the bad things I've read about them...

    If I ever win the lottery

    I know we all say that.... BUT!

    I have two 1911's on my list of shall and got to have.

    Springfield Amory Professional


    The .50 GI




    .50 GI Photo Gallery

    An old preacher, used to drive around Texas with his Bible, naturally, and also a .45 Model 1911. Someone who did not understand Bibles and guns are not mutually exclusive asked, "Why in the world do you carry that .45?" The wise old preacher never missed a beat and replied, "Because they don't make a .50!" They didn't then, but they certainly do now, and if that old preacher was still roaming around in his pickup, I would just wager that .45 would be replaced by the latest 1911-style semiautomatic, the Guncrafter Industries .50 GI..... if he could have afforded it...

    YMMV

    It gives the front of the gun weight and reduces recoil. Nighthawk makes a gun like that too - it supposedly makes a difference...
