Top one is an AO frame and then mixmaster everything else, hand fitted and refinished last week by myself and desertmoon, and the bottom one is a SA GI 1911-A1 in a compact 3"....







I'm hooked. You guys are a bad influence--between black rifles and 1911's, I'm in deep doo-doo...

IMO..1911's are waaaaay worse than BRD.
While AR's are fun to build and a hoot to shoot, there's just something "cold" about 'em. Whereas 1911's got soul, baby. To me the only thing that can approach the "mortality rate" of 1911 disease is "Garanditis".

Which is why I am avoiding a Garand purchase like the black death on a warm summer's day...

Seriously, get a CMP Garand. You'll only regret not doing it sooner.
