I know. I know. I know what you are going to say. However this pistol was already armaloyed when I got it. I bought it from the daughter of a deceased police officer who was liquidating her father's guns. I don't know if the barrel is original, but I don't care. It shoots like a house afire. Even with the original tiny sights. I put new springs in it and a new set of Narvadex (sp?) grips and I carried it on duty for the last four years before I retired. I often carry it as a CCW or sometimes as an open carry. People still come up to me and ask me if I know if the hammer is cocked. I just say "Yep. Just as GOD and John Moses Browning intended."

Here is the Wikipedia page for the Kongsberg Colt's.
They are very interesting pistols. You can still get historical information on individual pistols.

Here's my 1911, from 1917. Picked it up at an auction. Story was, Grandpa brought it home from WW1. It was in a closet, forgotten, since he died in the late forties. Shows some honest wear, but everything is tight, and original, never been thru a rebuild.

Here's another. Picked this one up from a friend who had no interest. His Father had been in Patton's army in WW2 going through France. Towards the end, he traded in the one he had carried for a new issue. Got the whole kit; pistol (late war, almost mint), two issue holsters, 5 WW2 magazines, two British made mag pouches, uniforms and a sap.

Note: except that it was designed by John Browning pre-WWI, made by Ithaca, and issued to a GI in WWII, I would not like my 1943 M1911A1 all that much

Like a lot of members on this forum I have a 1911 issue and freely admit it. The only help I seek for it is to gain more funds to buy more 1911's.

You have great taste in 1911s, looks like you need a Colt 45 Commander now.

My daily carry. Built it as a retirement present to myself. It started life as one of the ugliest nickle Commanders you've ever seen.

My 1974 satin nickel "Colt's Combat Commander." Don't know whether it was available in other calibers, but this one's in .45 ACP. All original. A bit of a recent family heirloom.

My next acquisition might well be a Colt Rail Gun, also in .45 ACP. Would be be happy to hear others' thoughts and experiences with them.

Made the mistake of stopping by one of my LGS this past weekend with cash in my pocket and sitting in their case was one of my "bucket list must have" guns LNIB at a unpassable price. S&W 1911SC Commander E Series. I don't believe the previous owner ever shot it, it's that perfect w/o a mark, nick or scratch on it! I have been wanting this gun for a couple of years now so in reality it wasn't an impulse buy, glad I snatched it up and can't wait to shoot it. I couldn't imagine the detail that has gone into this gun and the trigger it has, this thing is as nice as any 3k gun I've ever handled, kudos to you S&W! The only negative is the turkey kept the really nice mags it came with and traded it with one no-name cheapy, but that's easily rendered. The obligatory pic.

I have no idea on the older Colt's. I've also owned several of the older ones but sold them. They were too loose for me as I like to fire them.

One of my favorites is this Colt 01991 from 2011 (it was the least expensive one):





This is a great shooter.

I've posted this picture before, but me and another member here get a grin out of it...
I really do like this Officers ACP.

And those are real ivory.

This 1911 Commercial was shipped to the Alfredo Gottling Co.in Buenos Aires Argentina in 1921. It made it's way back to the U.S. and managed to stay in near mint condition. It is shown with an S.D.Myers holster.

What a gorgeous combination! This makes me realize I'll never come close to having all the beautiful Colt 1911s I want, not to mention the fine leather gear.

For me, the vintage 1911s (commercial or military) create something of a time warp. All the old craftsmen who worked to build them are mostly gone now, but their level of skill and attention to detail lives on in the old pistols...so in a way, they are never forgotten.

Just curious...when you say "Lieutenant", do you mean as in the military or as in law enforcement?

An excellent example of an excellent pistol. An early Series 70 Combat Commander is on my short list of pistols I want. I continue my on-again-off-again search for just the right one. I want a blued one, but haven't found one yet that I can afford.

Default Soviet 1911

I am laughing because, In a conversation at work today, we were talking about a 1953 Romainan Tokarev TTC I had just acquired. My friend said , "Tokarev"- That is the Russian Version of the 1911.

Watchdog. I believe he was military. The Colt factory letter states it was shipped to Paris.Ill. on April18th,1933. In my research on Riley McClain, he had attended the University of Illinois and had joined the ROTC. Later information revealed that he had served in the U.S. military (branch?) from 1943 until the end of hostilities. I sent to St.Louis for his military records but was unsuccessful in obtaining them. Mr. McClain"s wife lived to be 100 years old and was quite prominent in the community and there is a trust set up under Riley McClain's name.

Thank you, Watchdog. It shoots like a dream and has never malfunctioned. I am lucky to have an uncle, since deceased, who purchased it new, but who decided in his waning years that .45 ACP was just too much for him to handle.

Good luck finding a good one at an affordable price. You will enjoy owning and shooting it.

A genuine combat vet, returned from The Desert. Marine Corp M45A1 CQBP. Weighs a ton, recoil springs could stop a train, fabulous shooter.

I don't own any with "history" but here are a few new interpretations of the classic 1911.
