1911 Lovers-COME OUT OF THE CLOSET

#125

Any recommendations for a low key front sight replacement? I want it to stay as classic as possible so no tritium/fiber. But the stock front post is fat and can be hard to find in a hurry. Could just paint it, but a thin front post could be nice

I’ll throw mine up, Sig 1911 railed. One of my favorite handguns to shoot. Series 80 elimination shim, and cool grips g10. Want to replace the white trigger.

I finally got my 1911. It’s a Springfield 45acp 4.5" barrel with 6 mags. Haven’t shot it yet but I plan on doing so soon.

I realy like the finish. Distinctive solid look. Great looking grip. :+1::+1::+1:

Thank you, I can’t take credit for the setup. I received the 45 the way is. Was used for years as a leo weapon until forced into being put a side for a Glock 27.

K … so …

I added to my collection yesterday. The 9mm Spartan V is new to the family. It’s pictured with the 45ACP Duty One that’s riding my hip this weekend. So … this is my STI, Texas 1911, collection:

@Turmeric1 I saw that show. Just amazing how they made them. Gotta say that I’m not crazy about the looks. Don’t get me wrong if I had a spare 4 million laying around,I would probably get them.:grin:

A long time ago I was given a Colt - serial number indicated its a 1974 Gold Cup National Match with the big lettering, Series 70.

It sits on my top shelf on display in a locked box, while my other firearms are in the safe.

Sorry for all the reflections but you get the idea. That’s where it sits.

I shot it and man, like butter. I love shooting for recreation and own / shoot competition guns like the CZ Shadow2 and soon to get a Walter Q5 Match Pro when the prices come down after it’s release frenzy. This gun I use for reference to those.

Love my Sig 1911’s. The full size was my first one, the smaller Ofc’s model is my latest. One of the deciding factors was the opposite contrast to the first one. Replaced the original G-10 grips on both with Hogue soft rubber finger groove ones. Very comfortable to shoot and very accurate.


The top one is the 1911 Fastback Nightmare 5 in. and the bottom one is the 1911UT-45-NI in 3 1/2 in.
