    Colt .45 OWNZ ME!!!1 *pic update*

    third time shooting, went today at noon, only instead of renting the berretta they have at the range i took my grandfather's (RIP) old 1911

    not at all what i was expecting, everyone always says the .45 kicks and what not, i had absolutely no trouble (in fact the 9mm i was shooting out of the 92fs kicked alot more)

    Government Issue M1911 are :cool: :bowdown:

    The only thing I don't like about the 1911 is taking it down and assembling it.

    I have a Norinco 1911, a Star 9mm, and a Srpingfield 1911 on order, the new Mil-Spec WWII.
    Only $350 through my FFL.

    yeah, those new milspec springfields are fucking awesome. though, i don't think that my dealer sells them that cheap. i can't remember, since it's been nearly a week since i fondled it. the trigger was almost as good as most of the kimbers i've messed with. the only problem with it is the black-on-black sights. other than that, those things are cool as hell. i'd never carry the heavy bastards for concealment, but they're fun to shoot, and comfortable. probably the most comfortable pistols i've ever fired.

    interesting gun for sure, 1911 frame made by Colt in 1918, 1911A1 slide made by Remington Rand in 1942/43, reassembled by Rock Island Arsenal in the 40's

    guy at the range said it should fetch around $1000, i thought that was alot until he told me that mint original (non-parts) were going for $20,000:eek:

    That looks sweet! :big grin: Great shape, even for a 1940's rebuild.

    Awesome bit of history right there. :cool:

    I love to shoot my Kimber 1911, but I hate taking it apart to clean and reassembly is even suckier.

    yeah, it is a really cool gun, lot of fun to shoot
    shot alot of guns that day, the 1911, a 92FS, a G17, Ruger .38 revolver, and a .45 70 carbine

    i like the Berretta the best, that gun is the most comfortable and easiest to shoot

    didn't care much for the Glock, but its easy to see why people like them, they work!

    revolvers aren't my thing at all, though it was interesting shooting the .38 special round

    the 1911 was just alot of fun, not much else to it
    i can't wait until i inheirit that gun

    the .45 70 just plain kicked my ass! seriously my shoulder hurt for several hours after shooting it, and i only put 8 rounds through :eek3:

    how complicated is a tear down?
    i would like to really clean it, but this is only the second handgun i have ever shot and i doubt my ability to reasemble or even clean it properly

    It isn't that bad, I am just spoiled by the utter simplicity of my Glocks. Certain models field strip a bit differently, but you will most likely need a bushing wrench. I just hate putting it back together once it is clean, it seems to be easier to take apart though.

    all you need to take a 1911 down, all the way, to all its individual pieces, is a set of punches and a screwdriver. in some cases, you may need a punch for one or two steps of field stripping. bushing wrench? i've never seen a 1911 i couldn't disassemble without a bushing wrench. except my friend's dad's match 1911. that's the only one that's had that tight a bushing.
