Here's the 1911 family as of now
Done by Robert Miller w/1960 era military contract slide on a Colt late model Series 70.
my newest 1911.it is a sweet shooter.argie systema 1948 mod 1927 colt.
This one just added to the family. I* told the wife that it just followed me home. I'd be sure to feed it..I think she'll let me keep it!
The Grips I made myself from some coco bolo wood I have here. I'll be putting in a match trigger group that I recently acquired, I think it will be my new carry pistol and I can put that Para Ord LTC up for a little while.
So far I have one
Here are mine:
This one is built on an Essex frame and slide with a Kart NM barrel.
Springfield Armory Mil-Spec that I parkerized myself (a DIY project).
A Rock Island Armoury mid size that was rescued from a pawn shop:
The favorite, my Colt Officer's ACP.
Well it's nothing spectacular but it's my first 1911!
Yeah...stock photo....it hasn't even arrived yet
[QUOTE=Baldy;19812]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.
Baldy, could you redo those pics?
I have been thinking of getting that particular S&W.
BTW how do you like it?
I bought a Colt Combat Commander in .45 acp like this back in 1974. I used it as my off duty weapon. I put on a new set of sights and added some Pachmeyer grips.
I still have it, and it still shoots as good now as it did the day I bought it!
