    Well, I finally got my 1911 in.

    It was made in 1915 and is all Colt except for a Springfield Barrel. Oh well, I may remedy that in time. It really looks great. If it's been refinished, it was a good job done a long time ago. The roll marks and inspectors mark are crystal clear with no rounded edges. Pics were made by the seller and don't do this gun any justice at all.

    Smile Definative 1911 thread 9AMT HARDBALLER)

    Here is a picture of my new used AMT HARDBALLER .45 acp. I haven't gotten a chance to fire this yet and am not sure how good it is but it has good sights and a fine trigger pull.

    I did a psych eval for a LEO today and asked him what he thought of 1911's. Not a part of his test, we were through with that part, but just curiosity. He said they were "show guns." He was a Glock man, .40 caliber.

    I passed him, anyway.

    If he'd have said - I like P99s, he'd have gotten a 100, and would have your job by now

    New Kimber Compact CDP II

    Just picked it up today. Handles beautifully.



    Thanks to all who helped me as I did the research and asked a lot of newbie questions.

    Nice looking gun. Glad it works for ya

    Make sure to ONLY use magazines with a plastic follower, since that is an aluminum framed 1911. Otherwise, the metal followers will slowly gouge out the inside of your grip.

    Use wilson mags. And, U can replace the metal followers in any stock mags buy buying Tripp rebuild kits at www.trippresearch.com - I like his rebuild kits

    I bought one wilson mag when I picked up the gun. The dealer wouldn't even let me go into the range with the Kimber mag when I went to test fire the gun.

    I guess more Wilson mags is going to be on the top of my Christmas list this year.

    See, i prev had an aluminum Kimber and then found out about the aluminum gouge thing 2 weeks after. I wouldn't have bought the gun had I known. The damn gun ONLY worked with the stock mags - it would not work with Wilson mags. It was irritating. After 200 rounds, I was already starting to get the very beginnings of that gouge and some visible wear in the feed ramp.

    I want another kimber one day - but I will never get another aluminum framed 1911 again. Not unless it comes w/ a ramped barrel.
