Have had a 1st gen G17 for 20+ years. Stole $350 total in original box with an extra factory mag, 45acp G36 single stack and love it about 4 years. Owned a few other Glocks like many other weapons I’ve owned that someone wants more than me and got sold. Down to one 1911 and it tuned for LSWC 200gr. It’s a paper shooting sucker like no other but that is it’s use. Just isn’t a carry weapon.
Same here..My 1911 is strickly a paper puncher..It has an old Bo Mar Heavy Rib with Lock Up Ramp..I could match or better my 22 scores at timed and rapid fire.
I also, had, which I should have never sold, 3 1911 modified by the late James Clark. I had the Long Slide, a standard one, and 38 super modified to shoot 38 wadcuters.. All by James Clark and had his sig on each one.. The one I have now, was done up by the Marine Corp amrours at Quantico. She will only function with 3.5 grains bulleyes and 200 grain cast. Man, I missed those days...
Setting around talking the chit before a match. Oh, and the sandbagging...
Look like the old man has got to make a trip to the range this week to squeeze off a couple..
I won't go into extensive detail, but my 1911 is modified to shoot .45 super as well as standard .45 acp rounds. It is far more accurate than any of my other pistols. I really like my new baby .45 acp Glock for concealed carry, but if I could only keep one pistol it would be the 1911.
Love 1911 talk. I forgot I had James Clark make me up a Colt Commander for carry. That was accurized to shoot hardball power loads. It had a bo mar low profile adjustable rear, and a fast draw front. With all the work and the gun, it only cost me about $300 Right now that gun worth $$$$.
Let me end this here because I will talk you crazy on the 1911..
BTW, US Armed Forces had the 1911 as official sidearm for 52 years. Until NATO came up and wanted to standardize pistols..
