Good post!

Reminds me of two older gentleman who continually trade (at a local gun show) back and forth a Colt 1911, made in 1913. I was lucky enough to hold it and it felt like it was fitted for me. Kicker was they only wanted $1400 for it. Beautiful piece

I bought one of the 100 anniversary M1911 just last month. Probably never going to shoot it. I have five other Colts and two S&W M1911's to shoot.

And so it goes.

Thank you for sharing that- I'd never seen it before. I'm an unapologetic Glock fanboy but I must say I love the 1911- I'm on the cusp of adding a 3rd one to my collection.

My 1911 collection is certainly smaller than I'd like for it to be. I can think of at least 10 that I would like to add, one being a centennial version.

Still the sidearm that fits my hands the best

I like the looks of the old 1911's, but sure do appreciate the small improvements of what is offered in todays 1911, especially in the sight department. The newer Colt XSE's are nice!

It looked like "ol slabsides" was going to go TU in the middle of the last century, but here it is still kicking ass and taking names in the 21st. Still works for me. :D

+1 for improved sights. I'm so used to tritium sights now its hard to imagine life without them.
