    I'll play

    Here my 2 latest 1911's, well actually the Kimber is my wifes....
    It is a 9mm Aegis Pro, The Para is a doulbe stack .40 S&W
    I have put 700 rounds thought the two of them yesterday and to day without one malfunction in either one. This is my first 40 cal gun.
    I feel in love with the 45 acp 1911's but I have to say this may become a steel plate gun. except I don't like being in double stack class.

    Second Photo is kind of an old one Bottom gun is a S&W SC 4"
    though. Top gun is a rock island but I removed the compesator, cut the barrel down and Lathed a crown on barrel I bought it just to play with and see how well I could accurize the cheapest pistol I could find. Second from top pistol is my amature attempt with a Sprinfield loaded to "fancy it up" I think it looks better in person It is setup as a light target pistol with many modifications. shoots sweet.

    The other one is a plain jane springfield loaded nothing changed.


    (I wish this had spell check)
    Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected expected?

    Talking

    Thought I would revive this thread with something that is completely different. This popped up on Gunbroker yesterday, within minutes of the opening of the auction the deal was closed and the gun will soon be shipped to me. There are some very unusual variations of the Detonics Combat Master Pistols, one of the most unusual is the MK VII model. It was supposedly developed at the request of the CIA and supposedly the CIA got several examples for covert use. Whether that is true is open for debate, but one thing is true, the MK VII guns are so unusual and rare that they have achieved an almost mythical status and are rarely seen, even by collectors.

    It has been said that this is the model that started the trend toward the modern 'carry melt' package seen on modern guns. These guns are not melted/softened at the corners like the modern 'carry melt' packages but they were designed for pocket carry and draw without snagging. The gun has no sights and was designed for close quarters offensive and defensive work where point shooting, or more likely gut shooting, would occur.

    So to you I present my soon to be MK VII, it is more likely that you will see the Loch Ness Monster, a Unicorn or Sasquach than another one of these. I've been a Detonics fan/admirer/collector for years and I have never held one of these MK VII pistols. These photos are from the auction, I'll provide some nice glamor shots when the gun actually arrives (10 to 14 days?).

    No worries, any 1911 is a good one

    "Battle scars" and holster wear just show that the gun has been lovingly used
