You know, smite is a word that's just not used enough.
After all, it's fun to say and it's in the Bible, so it's got to be good.

Looks like a leather boot... Or wrought iron gate.


What the fuck am I making fun at? Do I own a 1911? No!

So maybe I just better shut the fuck up.

I think it fires Scrimshaw Elephant Ivory Bullets...and the muzzle blast looks like those fancy 4th of July fireworks displays....

Good god man, what in the hell did you do to that gun?
Link Posted: 10/22/2004 1:44:10 AM EST
Buy a stand for it and stick a rose down the barrel, that there is a display piece.


If it was mine, Id take to the range to blast some federal 230 and laugh(on the inside) at the old guys wanting to know why I shoot it.

I could never own a safe queen, I'd try to bump fire it just because I could.

Very nice piece.

They are obviously Japanese dragon grips on the Colt 1911 in hommage to the fear that the gun put into our Pacific enemies in WWII.

Nice gun. I'd never want to shoot it, or drag it in the mud, but very nice gun.

Cape_Hunter asks: VERY nice Colt! Care to give us some history on that gun?Any details?

Thanks for asking C-H. The Colt was manufactured in 1919. It is a commercial model and was engraved by Colt for a high-ranking military official after the war. The pistol is fully engraved as are the two magazines that came with it. The scroll work on the barrel is inlaid silver that has a nice patina. Depending on the light, it can appear as either silver or gold inlay.

Somewhere along its life, some dumb-a$$ actually fired it as evidenced by the slight wear mark on the rear of the hammer. The pistol is in NRA 99 % condition (due to the wear mark).

The pistol was passed along by the original owner's family and came into the possession of a California collector where I eventually purchased it. It was a high dollar purchase but, how can you put a price of such great looking art??

As you might suspect, it is a safe queen. I regularly turn it to prevent the process of corrosion starting (i.e. the nasty "brown" rust. The gun was finished in high polish blue.) The pistol was originally sold with factory Colt genuine hand carved elephant ivory grips that depict a Chinese dragon.
As the ivory has aged over time, it has turned a "yellow" color as is typical of aged ivory.

I appreciate everyone's comments about the gun and hope you appreciate its intrinsic beauty as I do. And if I really took a notion to, I could shoot it but I thing I will pass. That's what the Springer is for !!!

Take care and safe shooting,
Lawdog

Very nice. Guns like that are not just pieces of art, but also a way to connect with the history of the USA. They should be cherished and cared for by those who can appreciate them.

Don't let the hecklers bother you. If it was spraypainted in a ugly home-made camo job and had a bone optical sight stuck on top, it would be "cool" to the kiddies.

Honor the gun by shooting it, otherwise it's just a collection of metal parts.

Absolutly stunning. Be proud!
