She gets carried alot more than she gets shot. Mostly I take it with me out in the woods. Its my first 1911 and now, I'm looking into a commander sized 1911.

I seem to remember this pistol from a few months or years ago. IIRC, that's a king's #203 grip safety and you make the grips yourself and soaked them in linseed oil?

I tried to replace the firing pin on my GI after I got it back from Yost. A GI FP would not fit. Did you have alter the FP channel?

Springfield uses a 38 Super FP not a 45 FP.

Workhorse is right 1911 of the year

My son has one of these and it was in the same hole out of the box and will shoot anything :rock: :rock: 1911 of the year $400 instead of $2500 sign me up right now, between the five I have seen all have been the same and we are talking the cheapest version, Son and his friends have cleaned me out on my 200 gr lead semi wadcutters for plinking :scratch: :scratch:

Nice GI. Like those wood grips. Clipse, do you clip that light on the trigger guard? Been looking for a light for my Loaded Champ.

Oh My GOD! :eek:

Someone is actually removing their pistol from the box shooting it, and holstering it!

And worse! This person hasn't yet asked where he could get the pistol refinished!

(Clipse -- I'm buying your beer after our range session if ya come to this neighborhood.)

Totally one of the reasons I want one. I like the park. finish and the way it shows wear. Hell, I got my Wilson with the Armor-tuff JUST so it would eventually show some wear. 1911's NEED to have character wear, they are just too bad-ass not to.
This goes for anything. I love the look of a well used, well worn tool. Usually means that it is a damn good piece and never lets the user down, hence the worn look and the lack of hesitation to use it.
