Official "1911" thread

Dammit, walked into my LGS to grab a box of buckshot. Walked out with the buckshot at a ridiculously high price.....and walked out with this supposedly used Rock Island 1911 FS for a ridiculously low price. $325. Don’t even want a 1911, I got rid of all but my wedding gun, but how the hell do you say no to a fully featured (modern sights, giant beaver tail, Ambi extended safeties, full length guide rod, skeletonized hammer, adjustable trigger) 1911 for $325?

Will be an awesome beater gun.

With today's political climate and no telling what Pedo Joe's pen will do next. I told my wife last night that I wanted to buy this gun I've been drooling over for about 6 months. She'd heard about HR127 and even as a Berkeley Educated liberal thinks that is total bull(crap) and took me down after work and bought it for me.
"Used" Wilson Combat CQB Compact model. 4" barrel, officer frame. Definitely the best 1911 I will ever own.

Best purchase you will ever make.. (aside from that ring for your wife...) Mine is very similar.... must be a theme...

It was, they had a couple "new" 9mm double stack that looked really sweet as well
I saw some WC the last few times I was in.
im feeling the exact same way you did about the upcoming political situation, and I just had a windfall bonus at work. I may finally act on my childhood desire of buying a desert eagle because it may very well be now or never.

Kimber Custom Shop Ultra CDP II
Followed me home today.
Walked into my LGS and there it was.
Extremely good price.
My wife thinks I have a obsession with 1911's, I only have 6, 2 9 milli-metric and 4 45 acp. Always room for one more.

I like the melt/ debur on it. I am wanting to do that with mine but more of a extreme melt. Just have not found a place that I want to do it yet
