Negative.

Pimp out your next 1911, but leave that one as is. If it was good enough fer Grandpa, it's good enough for you!

I am seriously wanting one of those!

That is NOT your grandpa's 1911! It's somebody's butchering of one. And hell, I don't even particularly care for 1911s!

Ummmm..errr....someone cut off the front of your gun man.

What model is that?

I have the "Ultra Compact" for those times you don't like the extra 2inches of slide in you asscrack, but that is , well i don't know what it is!

The Ultra compact has higher sights, a Wide beaver tail, and a enlraged safety catch, so thats not what that is!

It'll be a nice carry gun anyway, easily concealable!

Btw, within normal pistol distances it will be fine, but my "Ultra Compact" likes to hit 3-4 inches low at 25Yards, I found this out practicing head shots and hitting "Mr. 27" in the throat every shot!

P.S. I also have two other full size Springfields, One i customized and one that is a "Loaded" Model, i use as my duty weapon!

The one i customized , I put a "ED BROWN" stainless Barrel kit in, a Ed Brown custom oversized safety, it has been milled and "Bo Mar" adjustable sights installed and a "Smith- Alexander" flat mainspring housing, a Custom grip safety and aftermarket Hammer, and for the final touches a set of Crimson trace Laser grips!! I can't wait till the snow Disipates so i can access the range to try it out for accuracy!!!

BTW, My "Loaded" model outshot my range instructor at qualifications and he had the Kimber Target, he paid 350 dollars more for, boy was he pizzed!!!!!

So THIS is what they do with all the slides that crack at the dust cover!

Al­l kidding aside, congrats--I just picked up a SA 1911 myself last week

Grandpa must have been missing two inches of barrel and about 3/4" of grip...

Nice! Problem is you really can't have just one 1911.

So, what ya gonna get next?
Link Posted: 3/10/2005 9:29:15 PM EDT
Plant that and give it water and love and it will grow up into a gun.

Just kidding. I'd like one for myself, but it's just not near the top of my list.
Link Posted: 3/10/2005 9:29:50 PM EDT

I love mine.
It is the one on the right.
Link Posted: 3/10/2005 10:11:35 PM EDT
I still don't have one yet.


I want a Kimber TLE RL II, or the Springfield Operator.

But I got to pay for a Cruze first. Than more Toys!

Finally hitting the range in the am...cant wait!!!

Nice gun. Springfield makes fine weapons.

Love 1911 .45s. Got Les baer TRS, Kimber Ultra rcp2, and Springfield loaded lightweight.

Next 1911 will be a 10mm, maybe Colt delta maybe custom. Then hopefully Sig will come out with a 1911 Gsr in .357 sig.
