    I love 1911's! I do not carry them exclusively, but when serious social activity may arise. I usually will lean toward a 1911. Favorites productions are Kimber II with a pair of night sights. Customs, which I do not have, but want.......Les Baer Thunder Ranch Model. Any Wilson! Take care all and God Bless! ;D

    That I owned is a tricked out Series 80, that I dream about is a commander sized Ed Brown.

    I have never owned a 1911 but I was issued several and carried one in combat forty years ago. Always reliable. One time in particular. Can't recall who made it as they were all contracted, possibly Remmington. The shoulder holster I used is now used by my son in Iraq with the same unit - 25ID. You can stuff the current M9 Beretta in there with some work. ;D

    Only 1911 that I have now is a Colt Combat Commander. Came box stock with a high rise beavertail, Novak style sights, and a Hogue Grip. Stupid reliable.

    One of these days I am going to build a full custom Government Model.

    Parkerized Colt 1991 ACP model.
    Right hand twist barrel from Sarco, extended safety, Ti and carbon trigger, and a nice clean trigger job from a gunsmith who built his own jigs to NM specs.

    Lives in a Fobus holster, and I use McCormick 8 rd mags, loaded with Silvertips.
    This is my "bump in the night" gun.

    Larry,

    There were indeed some that were made by Singer Sewing Machine company. Singer made some M-14s as well buit they didn't do that good of a job on the M-14s

    Welcome to EDCF Griff! Nice gear! That drum clip for the .45 is very cool. I bet you can get 200 rounds in it! Never seen anything like that except on a Tommy Gun.

    I could have used one of those in '93. That's when I bought my first 1911, a Colt Commander. It came from a confiscation auction, so I didn't know the history. It looked like it was in good shape. I fired one round and everything still seemed fine. When I fire the second round, the remaining 5 rounds immediately followed, full auto. Since I wasn't expecting that, I walked them up into the ceiling at the indoor gun range. When we disassembled it, we found that half of the sear that had just broken off, but the other side had been broken for a long time - that piece was long gone. After installing a new sear, it worked flawlessly, but that was my introduction to 1911's. I've owned at least one 1911 ever since! :D

    I currently have a Para-Ordnance C745S LDA.

    it seems that the 1911 that I have fallen in lust with is a Dan Wesson. it seems that everything about them is semi custom. The bad thing is that it is going to take 3 to 4 months to get one in at the local shop. I've called several shops and they say the same thing.

    They were purchased by CZ-USA and seem to have a little better distribution line than before. We'll see what happens.
