I own 0ne: GI 4" love it !
I've got the Springfield Armory PI19132L - full size loaded - great gun.
I have had several over the years - currently, I am w/o one. I am enjoying the 9mm ammo prices being cheaper than 45. So, may be a while before I get another.
Besides, for whatever reason, I shoot a SW99/P99 more accurately than the $1200 TRP I recently had. SO, I may not bother getting another 1911.
I am down to one now. It's my favorite format but ammo prices are a bummer. I might end up trying a 9mm 1911 one of these days..
have 11 military issued from WW I to Vietnam 4 commerical 1911a1 and a colt double eagle which i carry daily. nothing feel as good in my hand
I have had at least one 1911 for the last 28 years. It is still one of my favorite guns in 45acp. Here is my Gold Cup I bought in 1980 and have customized over the years.
I own one, but it is not my favorite platform. I will be spending some cash on it to get it to where I want it though.
Arguably, the most influential pistol ever made and an American classic.
Springer Lightweight Loaded with ALuma Grips and "Custom" grip tape job.
I own several 1911's and it is one of my favorite platforms. They are a lot of fun to modify and carry very well.
Well, I really would love a Nighthawk or a Springfield Professional. Before Tripp messed up my Springfield TRP, though, I didn't feel like it was as accurate as past 1911's I had owned, and the TRP was a $1200 gun. So, that kinda tempered me on 1911s too.
everybody has to have one.
It's proof you have class and style.
Love my 1911's; have Les Baer TRS, Kimber Raptor, and Dan Wesson PMA.

:-D I've had about 4 of them and now down to 2, Springfield TRD and a Colt CC. I had a springfield 1911A1 and gave it to my son and a Colt Colt Officers S/S Double Eagle that I gave to my other son. I really like the Colt Combat Commander!

Howdy. First post. 8)
Hello. Yes, I am a fan of the 1911 pattern pistol and have been for years.
This is an early Kimber "Clackamas" Custom that has served well over the years. (I should have had enough sense to buy two.)
This is a Series 70 Colt that I bought new in that decade. It was customized by Lou Williamson.
An STI Trojan in .38 Super...
This is a like new Norinco I found at a fair price. It is pretty much "home tinkered" but has never missed a lick. I did have a gunsmith install the fixed sights and reblue the slide.
This is a "home built" Caspian .45 ACP Long Slide. It has a Kart EZ-fit bbl and has proven itself both accurate and reliable. Only handtools were used; no dremel other than to polish the inside of the dust cover.
Gunsmith, Lou Williamson, did this Colt slide/Caspian frame/Kart bbl gun for me in the mid-80's. It's run fine for decades.
...a second "home build" but in the 5" version.
STI 9mm Trojan Long Slide...
Nice rack of 1911s there Stephen,
I just picked up a Combat Commander, high polish blued. It looks to be close to original. GI sights rubber grips, 7 rd mag, short trigger, 95% barrell, and all parts work! It does need a trigger job though, And I may need to slather some International Orange on the front sights so I can see them!
I'm headed to the gun show tomorrow to try to fing some factory 7 rd polished blue mags.
Hello, sir, and good luck with your Combat Commander.
Thanks for the kind words.
