    Any 1911 fans?

    Anyone have any nice 1911s?

    I have had a few in the past - currently, I have a Springfield TRP - one w/ Armory Kote. I just sent it off to have the slide refinished w/ black polymer and the frame will be hard chromed. Can't wait to get it back

    I have at present a 1941 Colt USGI and a 1972 Colt Combat Commander I bought new when I returned home from my 2nd tour in southern Asia. I do carry but my PPK/S or my old S&W M-49 bodyguard are main carry.

    Ihave a baby 1911 in form of a Colt Mustang pistol is mid 80's

    I also have a Llama sub compact clone of Para p-10 I aint proud I'll admit to owning a Llama. I also had a P-10 at the same time I still have the Llama.

    Well, that's pretty good. I used to have several more guns in the 1990s, but have sold off a few over the years. I hope to get another 1911 by the end of the year

    I love 1911s. And, I have the urge of another calling me - On the flip side - I seem to have had some type of issue w/ all the 1911s I have had. And, I just traded my TRP away on Sat for an HK USP and some $.

    I have had 2 slides hard chromed by Tripp research, and he did a great job. He did a crappy job on my TRP 1911, however. I sent part of it back for a 2nd time, and it still wasn't done right. He also forgot to send back 1 part. I was going to have to send it back a 3rd time if I had kept the gun. Plus, I didn't find it was as accurate - face it - the plastic Novak sights had been removed from the slide 2 times, and it was about to be #3 if I had kept it. I was so fed up.

    I was very irritated and I regret ever sending the gun to Tripp. I should have just kept it as is and stay satisfied...

    I think for now, I will stick w/ 9mm - it is 1/2 the price to shoot.

    1911?

    If you are going to buy a 1911 platform pistol, I'd look seriously at the Springfield Armory collection. They seem to be reliable and reasonably priced for an introduction into the 1911 world.(depends on how much you want to spend) If you are looking for "Bells and Whistles" then the list is endless as well as the $$$'s. If you want a good base 1911 for a reasonable price (or even their higher end guns), then Springfield is a good bet.
    Good Luck

    I haven't had any experiences with an actual Colt 1911, but I do have lots of experience with all the many 1911 style .45s out there. They are all fun and rugged guns. I would trust my life and family's life with it anyday.

    the other thread on the first page is really good about 1911s too..

    i currently have a springfield, a les baer, and a custom colt...i carry the baer sometimes, and have carried other 1911s in the past...with summer approaching i will likely carry my p228...i love the .45, and the 1911 is my absolute favorite gun...having said that, if i cant accomplish what i need to with 27 rounds of 124 gr +P 9mm then i should have left a long time ago...

    Hello. Yes, count me in as a 1911 fan.


    This is an early "Clackamus Kimber" and it's been a very accurate shooter since day one. Other than changing the grips & adding some skateboard tape and changing the trigger, I've really been pleased with the gun out of the box.


    I bought this Colt 70's new and had it customized a bit. It too has been a most reliable forty-five.


    This lightly-customized Norinco has been a very serviceable pistol.


    A favorite is this 6" Caspian long slide that was "built" at home.


    This Springfield Armory Mil-Spec has not malfunctioned ever. It has roughly 3500 rounds through it. Its internal parts were upgraded by Teddy Jacobson.

    Best.

    Take a look at Dan Wesson. The fit and finish is a whole lot better than my Springfield black stainless. They use Ed Brown or Wilson internals. I bought a used PM7 I'm really pleased with and Ijust ordered a classic commander after a review on gunblast.com.

    BANG FOR THE BUCKS

    Shipwreck,
    You may want to take a look at the KIMBER PRO CARRY HD II, it is all stainless, just the right carry and range size--This can be picked up most place for under $800.00. We have 2 of them and both have been ready and flawless right out of the box. Give one a look.



    Best

    b) a NIB PB9108LP Springfield Mil Spec
    c) a Kimber Ultra Carry II (my everyday carry package)
    d) a NIB Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special
