@DYSPHORIC JOY ....NOW I see it... lol...
I purchased the little gem awhile back from a guy on a local forum...I've tried several times to track it down...even have 2 buddies that work for Roger's Shooting School...still not much info...
this thing has been shot...A LOT...but it has the shortest reset and best trigger I've ever felt on a 1911...
Check with @mikea. He may know the origin story.
An antique pistol thread.... how quaint
1911 pistols are sort of like ESEE-3s made out of S35V. Pretty too look at. Just don't drop 'em.
I grab a 1911 to use right after my Flintlock is empty !
HK 90 Series thread coming up next
Just to remind you old timers of your age and to make the mad Austrian feel more accepted:
I'm surprised you do it in that order
There is just something magical about a 1911. Maybe it was because it was the plastic gun we all had in the neighborhood or maybe its an old movie thing. Who know but there will always be a 1911 and 1911 parts. Folks say they are picky but ive not had that as an issue. Only problem ive ever had was a staked front sight come loose.

....finally someone addresses the Elephant in the room !!!
Old and ugly, but pretty neat.
Very. Very. Very. Neat.
Serial #83xxx built in 1917. I haven’t shot it, but it’s been in family for a long while. Not sure how we got it, likely a post-war trade for mechanic work. Many of our older arms were received by my grandfather when he owned and operated his garage.
..... yes this !!!!
In the 90s a bunch of 1911s arrived here from Vietnam. All had been refurbished and shipped there during the war and gone into storage un-issued till a dealer arrived and bought them all up (they also bought a container of 12ga pump guns (Win, Rem, Stevens and Ithaca). I wish had I bought one of the 1911s but ended up buying one each of the 12ga guns as they were such a novelty !!
The 1911......I always make sure I have a knife with me when I carry it.....that way when it jams or rattles apart I am at least still a little armed...
