Let's See Those 1911's

Recommended Posts

I used to have a SA 1911 GI exactly like yours seasprite, that thing would shoot and cycle ANYTHING. I swear you could've packed an empty .45 casing with sand and a mudball and that thing would've shot it and cycled reliably....

My Kimber tactical custom HD on top and the better halfs SIG

I've got the little brother to your Kimber, brother, in the Tac Pro II, 4".  My carry gun for 2.5 years, until these bastards here talked me into a plastic gun...  :cookoo:

What in the hell would you do if there was a polymer 1911?!

 

Besides Rock River.

 

Oh...and STI.

You already got me on the Springfield, man - that's as far as it goes...  <nutkick> <laughs>

 

I even had to buy the one with the thumb safety, just to make it "more 1911-ish..."    Bastage...  :thefinger:

Thanks, I could not put in a comment.  This site has been acting up on me lately.  I don't know why!  

 

Anyway, the pistol is a Detonics Scoremaster in .451 Detonic Magnum.  I have dies specifically for the .451 DM round and 500 piece of virgin OEM brass!  Machinegunner, Blaine sent me a Detonics Patch with the snake for free which was very nice of him.  

 

The grips are made of aluminum and the emblem is of the 2nd Battalion, 504th PIR (Parachute Infantry Regiment - 82nd Airborne Division) which is my regimental affiliation.  This is not official - it is an artist's rendering.  The White Devils are the 2nd Battalion.

Thanks for the welcome guys. Dad taught me and my brothers to shoot with that 1911. Its amazing how well made the pistol still operates and how smooth the action is. I bet we have fired thousands of rounds out of that 1911. Dad used to shoot competative with the local gun club and nationaly at NRA matches. Rapid fire pistol and service rifle. He was also very active with the NRA. It saddens me that dad is no longer with us and I do miss him.

 

I have dads M1 Garand and 1911 and my Granddads 1903 Springfield. I wanted to keep the tradition of keeping our service rifles, but the Army made me turn in my M16 when I left.

 

Dad had another 1911 and a SW model 52-1 for competition.
