I'll take 20 of em. On second thought make that 40.
Don't forge several hundred extra mags!!
I get what is left bravo
anybody have any info on it.. Where did ya get it mike
I was just searching thru pics again, there was nothing describing the ad.
originated in the 1890's by John M. Browning and was the standard side arm of the US armed forces starting in 1911...giving it the name
To think that a design over 100 years old is still current by todays standards. Incredible.
I think his best pistol design is the high power.. The original autos your talking about were designed back in the era of black power.. Guessing he's one of Utahs favorite sons
I personally like the 1911 better than the High Power. No semiauto feels as good in my hand as a High Power, but I like the 1911 better. It's easier to "customize" to the individual's liking (mainspring housing, trigger, grip safety, hammer). Adjusting a High Power's trigger pull is a job for someone with knowledge & experience (certainly not me).
Theres so many more options for the 1911, I have never adjusted a triger pull on a high power, like the 1911, i don't think ive ever had or shot one that had a bad triger.. Funny as i sure can't say the same about Colt revolvers, im sort of a revolver fan as you guys know, and where all Smiths are great (except for a couple of victorys that i want greasy to work on) Colts are sort of a guessing game.. Single action is always good, but the double action on a lot really stack...
I bought one in the mid '80s that was painted with black lacquer. Under the paint it was in beautiful but naked condition. I had it parkerized and it was near perfect. Now I'm pissed @ myself for selling it (at a huge profit).
I think thats gona change as the market has really jumped in them.. People Now know that it's a colectable.. You remember how they usta be so cheap that you could buy one for a c note, and of course they were pretty mistreated. People like myself who are not gun smiths would do a lot of experimenting, and ive seen some victorys in real bad (and wierd) shape. I will tell you that if you want to buy a piece of WWII iron that costs less that a vw bug its the way to go..
crap. Hope I find another like that. They are just nice, that's all.
