    Just finished removing the ambi safety and converting to a Wilson Combat single sided safety which is also a somewhat lower profile. Springfield makes a nice gun, but the ambi safeties seemed pretty large, and I didn't like having one on the outside when I carry.

    for a classic look, the Milt Sparks 1AT (adjustable tension) in brown basket weave was a pretty spiffy competition holster with a fancy stitched belt... it still gets comments from the old timers at matches, though has been replaced by a G34 and Blade Tech DOH... 1911 is Springfield frame and slide and pretty much aftermarket everything else

    Ambis on my comp guns, but really don't like them on a carry gun. Nice job.

    Very nice. This Colt looks to be a 1911 which dates 1924 and earlier. The 1911A1 came 1924 and after. At any rate, I'm thinking this pistol my be a tad older than you think.

    Thanks! Both are former work guns with a lot of use. Memories. Both good and bad.

    It's a Spyderco Yojimbo2, they're unobtanium, since Spyderco hasn't done a run in while. Keep an out in the "for sale" sections here and especially at BF, they pop up every now and then.
