    What is your dream 1911?

    I'm wondering what everyone's dream 1911 is. I'm talking about the biggest, baddest 1911 that you drool after. But production guns only. No one-of-a-kind guns. Guns that you can actually find.

    I don't think I have one yet because I'm pretty new to the 1911 style. But I like Springfield's custom series and Kimber's CDP series.

    I like them all but you know how that is when your poor. I had about $800 to get one with and that was it. I like the S&W line real well as I had shot several and that was what I wanted. At a show and the guy has a 1911sc-pd Commander for $899. We start going back and forth and I got him down to $710+tax. I took it and after over 1000rd with a hiccup I don't regret it.

    Right now I am dreaming of the Para-ordance LDA 6+1 carry in SS. I picked it up and knew it was the perfect carry gun plus it's a 1911 which I feel safer with. The difference with this one beside the smaller size is it has no hammer. They say it's DOA only and when I dried fired it, it felt like a true single action. It's slim and the perfect size for me. I'm happy with having 6+1 in 45 acp and will have two extra mags with me. This will be a year around gun for me. If it shoots like my S&W 1911, I'll be the happiest gun owner.

    I have a remington-rand which is mil-spec and shoots great but I don't like the sights. When I got my S&W 1911 I knew I had the gun that I can hit whatever I aim for. With that said I don't know if there is a better shooting 45 out there for me. I can't see anything shooting better than the one I have. I hope to see someone shooting one of the Kimbers or wilson 1911's at my range. I won't hesitate to ask them if I could give it a try. People ask me all the time and I'm more than happy to show off my stuff.

    I'm sorry but I don't think there is anything better than a good 1911. I love all my other pistols but I think the 1911 is the best over all pistol ever made.

    Again, a picture is worth... This is a WWI Colt 1911 that was owned by a Canadian medical officer and late a Lieutenant-Governor of Canada. Trump this one. Regards, Richard

    Baldy, if I lived in Titusville that pistol would not be owned by you! I usually say the Irish have "CRAP" for luck, in this case you beat the luck of the Irish! Enjoy your toy. Regards, Richard

    Now you know Richard you win hands down with a beauty like that. I do dream of pistols like yours but they are out of my reach. Good luck with her she is a very good piece of history.


    Cheers, Baldy

    Baldy, I am 70% Scots/Irish and having the luck of the Celts I do not own it. A friend died and left the beauty to his son. I took the pictures prior to my friend dying. Regards, Richard

    A range/store I frequent in SC is a Wilson Combat dealer. I would like to have one of them if I ever scrounge up that much disposable income.

    My favorite Colt Auto.........

    The only autoloader that caught my fancy was a Colt Gold Cup .45 ACP. I was told when I bought it that it had been set up for hardball. It was plenty accurate enough for short range varmint hunting.

    This pistol had a preference to the Winchester Silvertip ammunition, and they did a good job on crows out to about seventy-five yards or so. Never recovered a bullet, but they appeared to expand well.

    Sort of wished for a 10mm version of that gun.

    But the thing just threw my brass everywhere.

    i have one colt 45 that will never be shot
    it is a 1911 govt model USMA class pistol laser engraved for my son

    for me I'd like a nickel plated 45ACP govt pistol with beaver tail grip and C/T laser sights - why does all the nickel plating go to the 38super?
    or a commander lt wt XSE in SS

    The first 45 colt govt I bought was in 1973 and i had a beaver tail put on it - didn't look right but i loved the hell out of it until I sold it - wish i never did sell it

    My 1911 dream is to own 12 of them. That should cover it.

    Well, I've never owned one, and I've never shot one, but, I really like this one:

    Kimber Tactical Custom II



    Also, the Para Ordinance Warthog

    Man's got to know his limitations.

    Sig Sauer P232 Stainless Steel .380ACP
    Kimber 1911 Pro CDP II

    One I could afford! I want one very bad but man the prices are steep. I guess I just gotta save more of my daily change and save up.
    I have always liked this Kimber.

    I'd get a Hard Chromed Nighthawk if I could afford it

    Probably a Talon 1 with a bull barrel.

    LOL! Using the term Dream 1911 all I can say is they are like Lays chips...Can't have just one. My Dreram is to have a bunch of them. THat Para Tac-Four is really nice though. Double stack mag AND 45ACP in a 1911..

    I think I have all my dream 1911s at this point. My Nighthawk is still on order, however.

    My dream 1911 is getting a top notch smith to customize the 70 series Colt Commander that my granddad carried before he died. Hopefully I can get the money scraped together next year so I can get on a waiting list.
