    I got out to the range the other day and it had been far too long to really stretch out the legs on my Springfield Loaded. I had swapped out the two piece guide rod for a Wilson one piece and wanted to make sure it ran. The gun functioned 100% and I'm happy with it.

    Great thread! Though I spend a great deal of my time with 1911 parts in my hand, I can still look at finished 1911's all day long. What a wonderful collection on display!

    I have three SIG 1911's - a 1911 MAX, a Scorpion carry traditional and a STX. They are all very well made and very accurate. I've never had a malfunction with any of them and and fired 1000's of rounds.

    You got that right! It is my favorite gun to go shoot right now. Point Blank in Carmel has these carnival targets. You know, the ones with the ducks and such that look like carnival games? My son and I will do accuracy competitions using this gun and those targets. So much fun.

    Love SIG 1911s - They make the best factory 1911 out there. I have three. I have a friend with 6 Kimbers and I had to work on ALL of them to correct feed and ejection problems. One of my SIG's has over 6000 rounds through it without a malfunction.

    I was not looking for a Sig 1911 when I found this, but I really like it! The trigger is a little stiff, but that is ok for now. I ran 200 rds yesterday and it was SPOT ON! I think its a keeper!

    This is a 1932 Commercial manufacture Colt 1911A1 that was Lend Leased to the British during WWII. I bought it as a young 2LT stationed in Germany in 1982 at the Graffenwhor Rod and gun club............for less than $100.00. I was a Signal Corps Officer who wound up spending my entire career in Combat Arms units......mainly Nuclear capable Field Artillery.....so as the COMSEC and NRAS custodian I had to be armed pretty much 24/7. It had a lot of holster wear when I bought it and got a lot more over the next few years as I managed to get myself on orders to carry a personal sidearm....and it was with me all over Europe and Korea.......thought about having it refinished.....but have grown kinda comfortable with it as is....have shot literally tens of thousands of rounds through her....and still gets slipped in a Yaqui slide for daily carry on a regular basis.....

    Beautiful gun! Even better story!! Don't have that one refinished, she's gorgeous as is.
