I recently purchased a Sig 1911 ultra .45 for my carry piece.This is my first 1911. It feels great on recoil and balance.I put about fifty rounds through it of 230 gr. feild rounds no problem.I did have the slide lock engage while empting a clip of hydro shock hollow points.No jam just lock came up. Just wondering if anybody else has seen this with 1911's. Any adjustments out there?
My Para CCW LDA 3 inch barrel double action only custom carry gun it shoots about an inch at 25 and feeds empty cases by the full clip. The mag well is cut down to grip width and all of the edges are broken with a little bling on the hood. She be a seven shot 45 ACP that will feed the 45 Auto Rim 252 gr SWC Cast bullet. I am waiting for the bone grips to arrive.
This is my only 1911. It's a first year Kimber Custom Target (extremely low serial number). It was accurized by Ton Kidd and fitted with a hand lapped barrel bushing. Tested 1.5" at 25 yards. Over the years it's been modified a lot:
Hard Chrome finish (that's not stainless)
Polished feed ramp
Ultralite magnesium/titanium trigger assembly
Oversized Mag Well
Tungsten Guide Rod
Shimmed rear sight
Wilson Combat Bulletproof extractor
This is my first 1911 and I like it. Taurus PT1911 SS with rail. Just over $600 new at Budsgunshop.com. I call her Eleanore and it is love at first fondle so be gentle, I know she's no Wilson Combat, or even a Kimber, but she is MINE, all MINE! (I did get her some Wilson Combat magazines though).
Not fancy. Bought it used in 1973 and been to a lot of matches with it including All Army. I can't shoot the way I used to but it still usually hits what I am shooting at no matter if it's at 15 yards or 100 yards.
heres my 1916 prod date colt thats all original & not rearsenalled like many out there were. shoots like a dream to be almost 100 yrs old. its just as reliable & accurate as my newer 1911s, although only gets shot on special occasions.
Heres my Citadel im working on making better
When i first got it
Just playin around!!!
And how it is now. Houge grips, and polished up the feed ramp
Next im getting a Nighthawk Custom Mainspring Housing Flat with Magazine Well 1911 Officer Scalloped Steel Blue and going to do a trigger job and see how i like it. Depends on how i do if i get a trigger kit or not...
https://flic.kr/p/8426760724 I inherited this fine and deadly accruet peice from my father 5 years ago. It's a michigan armaments custom combat .45 not looking to sell just the info on the gun. looks like my kimber but shoots better ? serial # is below 00075
Yes, it's a Taurus PT1911 .45 and I understand there are plenty of haters out there. I got this because I didn't want too and couldn't afford too spent big bucks for a bigger name pistol. This sucker is very accurate and goes bang whenever I pull the trigger which is what I want. This is also my everyday carry.
I was a Navy Corpsman attached with the Marines Corps. I had these grips custom made for me. The left grip has the Navy emblem and the right has the Marine Corps emblem.
Took delivery on this this afternoon. Its a Remington 1911 R1S. I've not shot it yet but it sure is pretty. I can no fault with the fit and finish. Its traditional although stainless. Made in USA. Those made in the Philippines, Turkey and Brazil may be flawless, shoot well and good looking but the 1911 is an American pistol. Snapping the trigger letting the hammer hitting my finger it seems light, crisp and short.
I'll be proud every time I look at this thing
Excuse the bad pic. as the sun was setting my battery went dead. This is the only one I got
