      HELP! Have you heard of a VEGA 1911?

      Anyone; I need help to find information on a 1911 that was passed down from my father-in-law. The slide is stamped VEGA Sacramento, Calif. and the frame is stamped VEGA Santa Ana, Calif. There also apears to be a stamp that looks like an offcentered cross hair with EMC on a diagonal in the circle.
      The 1911 has been checked out by a very competant smith but he is unaware of the maker. HELP ME OUT!!!

      Friend of mine has a 1911 that he built from Vega parts back in the 80's. I have one magazine marked Vega. I'm guessing they made parts, like Caspian and Essex, that people used to build custom guns.

      If I recall right VEGA was one of the first to produce a stainless 1911 frame and/or slide. Dont know if they made complete pistols or just the components for custom smiths but they "might have" made complete firearms way back when moses was a pup.
