Jesus saves completely.

Titus 1:10-11

For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped

I wouldn't rule out the Springfield Armory 1911 Mil-Spec or GI. Everything I've read has been positive, and they are guaranteed for life. I would have bought one if I had not seen the Colt Commander.

Ah yes....but then it wouldn't be a WWII GI standard would it?

Yes sir but back when I first started shooting the Mil Spec 45 we didn't have all the bells and whistles we do today so we learned how to shoot with what we had and it worked!

A friend of mine and I had both left active service. He bought a 1911 and came to my house to show it to me. It was tight, it didn't rattle, and so I thought something was wrong with it. I'd never encountered a 1911 in the service that I couldn't rack with one hand. Also, his had rifling in the barrel, which I'd never seen before in any of the issued 1911's. He got a big laugh every time I discovered these things that were "wrong" with his pistol.

Come to think of it, I'm surprised how accurate we could shoot those old things. Really, they must have been WW2 vintage.

Despite that, I would rather have one of those old 1911's than the new Beretta's. I'm not saying the M9 is a bad pistol but gad zooks those 1911's kept shooting in seemly any condition. And they hit hard. And I never had any trouble qualifying with them so they shot straight enough despite the EXTREME wear. The M9 is nice, but the 1911 is Army.





Good things come to those who shoot straight.

Did you only want evidence you are not going to call "wrong"? -Stripe

Being a true WWII design is not necessary for me.
