just a few of My 1911s

just a few of My 1911s

I bound do just like the 1911 pistol. Strike that. i really like the M1911 pistol. notably these made by means of Colt. Which is to claim in fact the most effective precise M1911s. i used to be making some room within the protected nowadays and acquired some out to re-prepare and acquired eager to talk about them. no one else become around or inclined to listen to me speak about the 1911, that job now falls to you.


This XSE govt mannequin is the one I actually have carried essentially the most and the longest. I shot it the second most over all but the most in serious practicing or practice. I hope Colt had now not stopped making the XSE line. They got here with each characteristic i might have requested for had I had a custom one made for myself. It’s had a couple of units of grips over the years and now has the VZ Colt branded grips which I truly dig. a lot of very good memeories were made with this pistol or while carrying it. It’s one i’d ask to be buried with. I carried this one for appropriate at 10 years before putting it into semi retirement for CCW. The gun I changed it with for daily CCW is the one under.

The light weight commander is what I typically raise at the present time. It’s practically a XSE. I been carrying it considering that 2016 and it has spoiled me for weight. i love it because of the complete measurement grip frame however only a hair heavier than the Colt Defender. It’s very accurate and the new dual recoil springs Colt has been the use of considering the fact that developing with it for the M45A1 MARSOC gun makes it suppose like a Gov mannequin.

The Colt “Rail Gun” is the gun I even have definitely shot essentially the most. when you’ve got been here in view that 2012 you are going to keep in mind my 4,000 round torture check of it. It doubtless has 40K rounds via it via now. this is the gun I work the hardest. I changed the timber grips with some VZ gunners grips then changed those with these spiffy black VZ grips. here is the gun I do most practising with. I’m bound it might horrify loads of the Tight healthy Crowd if they dealt with it. It seems like one of the ancient dreaded items you hear about from guys within the military who held a USGI 1911 one time. Doesn’t count. it really works perfectly and it’s accuracy still holds up. As you comprehend, I don’t put a great deal weight into the complicated/tight battle philosophy. no longer for precise world lifestyles and demise uses anyway.

The Delta Elite is a writer’s demo from Colt that I saved. Of route. I had owned a number of manner lower back in the past. those made in the 80s and early 90s and that i have all the time been in love with the 10MM. however this one turned into at last made in the configuration I all the time wanted from Colt. Or close to it anyway. i needed a XSE in 10MM. here’s shut ample. Stainless with Novak sights, beavertail grip and so on. I swapped out the safety for my favored category, which is the STI defense, and that i put in a S&a major spring housing as i’m wont to do on most of my 1911s. The gun has the new twin recoil spring equipment which make it a tiny bit tamer when capturing double tap loads and the heavy complicated cast stuff. What’s now not to like?

I in no way left the Nineteen Eighties. I wish I could put my mind in some type of desktop simulation of the 80s and just are living in it perpetually. the two tone 1911 become the epitome of type returned then. It’s still the seem to be that I think of once I consider of customized or excessive end 1911s now. The combat Elite got here out lower back then and become always one i wished. This edition changed into released a number of years in the past and in a much better configuration than the originals. It got here more like custom types from again then. Novak sighs, Smith & Alexander beavertail, prolonged security which I swapped for the STI version, and all of the other average refinements from the XSE line. The existing combat Elite is all stainless however is relatively candy. the two tone continues to be my favorite.

talking of years past. The fight target from the early 90s. a contemporary of the usual combat Elite. I already spoke of this gun just a few weeks ago. It was at first Brady’s 1911 and i lusted for it considering the fact that they came out. I saw this one first in ’97 and at last obtained it from Brady just a few weeks in the past. These guns are very accurate. It’s basically a Gold Cup countrywide fit accomplished up in combat form.

an extra one I actually have had for 15 years. It was just the O1991 model. it is inside colt communicate for a plain Gov model. you can see I even have changed just a few issues. I’m going to identify drop if you will forgive me. My good friend Justin Baldini at Colt, hooked me up with an fashioned O1918 main spring housing with lanyard loop and O1918 long-established milspec small safety. I put them on the sun to make it a form of hybrid retro styled pistol. an o.e.m journal with lanyard and my all-time favorite Colt gold medallion full checkered grips comprehensive it off.

The AMT Hardballer Longslide is one other one from Brady. Man i wanted one of those ever since seeing The Terminator within the theater. That extra weight and barrel/slide make for a really smooth gentle pistol to shoot. contrary to customary web bullshit, this one works best. God i’m uninterested in reading opinions from a lot of morons on-line about what weapons will do what. It’s all so tiresome. Anyway, i like it. It’s one of the vital few non-Colt pistols you are going to ever see me personal.

The Colt sequence 70 competition sequence 1911 is the most recent made, new 1911 I have. It’s excellent. It definitely is a brilliant OTC pistol for competition. It’s very accurate and if you’re a kind of guys who is mentally retarded to the aspect you think best the series 70 fireplace manage community is decent for anything else then you will be happy. right here is a touch to you potential new 1911 owners. Ignore that shit concerning the series 80 equipment being no decent. That is simply stupid. The most effective factor sophisticated with the series 70 and older, trigger neighborhood is that it’s less demanding to full take aside and reassemble. And even that isn’t tough to do once you see how to do it. Que Dyspeptic Gunsmith to bitch at me in the comments. truth is I actually have manufacturing unit sequence eighty weapons with triggers more advantageous than some collection 70s I personal and at least simply as good.

I suppose we are able to do a component 2 day after today with a number of more and a few chum’s 1911s.
