I agree with Rusty there. You got some fine looking 1911s. Besure you drop a picture of one in a thread now and then so we can enjoy them too.

Just got this puppy today. I'm still feasting my eyes... and my hands. HA!
I know it's a few of the same one, but it deserves many angles of view. Thanks.

Hello. Here are some:
STI Legacy with checkered grips, GI recoil spring guide rod and standard end cap.
Early "Clackamas Kimber" with a few minor internal modifications and different stocks.
An old Colt Series 70's with blk parkerized slide/frame with internals hardchromed by Armaloy, decades ago. (The blk parkerizing has been refinished a few years ago. Lou Williamson did the S&W revolver sight installation.)
Springfield Mil Spec with different grips and internals.
STI Trojan 38 Super
Early Dan Wesson Patriot. The front sight has been changed as have the grips.
My first "home build": Caspian frame and slide w/Kart match bbl & bushing and other maker's internals. All work done w/o powertools. My gunsmith did blue the gun.
Colt slide w/Kart match bbl & bushing fitted to a Caspian slide in the '80's by gunsmith, Lou Williamson.
Second home build: Similar to the first one but in the conventional 5" length.
An older Springfield Armory lightweight. A few parts have been changed and some anti-skid tape added to the front grip strap.
STI 9mm Trojan Long Slide

Man, there are some seriously nice 1911s in this thread. I have yet to even chnage the grips on my first (but not my last). I like the STI Trojan longslide, I think that will be my next one.
Here's my stock PT1911:

Well, here's mine - my one and only. Most of you guys are better photographers than I am, too. The incandescent light makes the frame look pink - but it's not - I swear!

Who did the work on that one????

Chris Conlon of Avon IN (Indy suburb). He is a gunsmith but specializes in re-finishing. He has done two other 1911s for me.

I did the math - if I wanted - instead of buying a PS90, I could sell my HK USPc and have enough to by a Nighthawk Talon w/ bull barrel if I wanted (about $2500). But, I don't know. I used to want one very badly. But, I generally shoot my P99 better or as well as I do a 1911. Not sure if its worth it... Hmmmmm....

This is my first Kimber.

it ain't a safe queen, that's for sure ...
my old Springfield workhorse ... I know it ain't pretty with wear marks & dings & scratches but it's one of my all time favorite sidearms ... it's been through hell & back and it shows and it still empties the brass pretty darn good. I couldn't even guess how many rounds now.

looks good, rusty. guns are tools meant to be used. props to your using it to it's intended purpose.
