Did some extensive fondling of one of these at a Cabela's, man that is one sweet 1911. It's supposed to be very true to a factory new 1911 circa 1918. The fit, quality of the components, feel, finish, are all gorgeous. Cabela's had it for $1,700 but I'm sure they'll run for less online.

I need to get over there again and look at some of the used 22's without the Mrs bugging me ;) I'll stop by the pistol counter too just because you said to, snap.

It's one of my routine "do you have any powder" stops, of course I have to look at the gun counter when I'm there.

I would rather buy the real thing for a few hundred bucks more.

I am finding myself really wanting a 1911 lately and you guys aren't helping.
You're in danger of leaving the collective. Let the de-Borging begin.

At this point I just want one because of the history of the gun. And well, they are pretty cool looking too. lol

A real WWI/II era 1911
If you spot one in that condition let me know so I can buy it. Plus the Turnbul is an exact replica from 1918, no knock on the WW2 vintage stuff but the Turnbul has advantages.

It will be rare to find a new one from that era but I would rather have the real thing for that kind of money. The 1911s back then had problems with anything other than ball ammo. So for 2k ill get a modern one that can handle more than one type of ammo.

Classic and durable. Love the 1911.

The selection choices blow my mind. You can find one in any flavor you want now.

Anybody a fan of the double stacked 1911? I have not gotten to try one out.

They had some reloader 7, 10, and 15 when I was there. DIdn't pick the can of RX15 up as it was $31 and our LGS had it for $29... picked up a little more 22. Found some steel 7.62x54R that I'll shoot eventually.

Yes, I've got the RIA Tac 2011 hi cap. It's a hoot to shoot. Damn accurate, reliable, and I doubt you'd find any 1911 fit as well as this one within the same price range. The only problem with it is with 14rd mags, you burn through a lot of ammo in a very short time.
