    Found the Gem I was looking for!

    Yeap, nother 1911! I recently started checking Armslist for 1911's and ran across this beauty. I have been trying to find one locally so I could make sure it was perfect. Today was my lucky day! I called the guy and arranged the meeting. Drove 4 hours one way for this one but it was worth it. I asked the guy how he came across this gun and he told me he contracted a construction job and the guy didn't have all the money so he included the pistol as payment. The last owner didn't shoot it and judging by the condition, the first owner probably didn't either. This thing is mint!




    With recently released Rosewood grips from Detonics USA. I bought these for my newer style CM but ended up selling it and kept the grips.

    Congrats on the new pistol. Man, you have a serious 1911 problem. You need a 12 step program or something. Lol.

    Thank you. I was doing good after the wife put me on a rehab program but I recently sold one of my motorcycles and I am having a relapse!

    Ive got a question about the sights. Why so forward on the slide? Its something Im not familiar with, usually I want the longest sight radius available on the gun. Something to do with concealed carry, drawing, or maybe carrying with hammer down one in the chamber?

    Thank you sir, I am very exited about this one. I had been looking for about a year and finally was able to score and at a very nice price too. Thats always a plus!

    When the engineers develop the concept, the pistol was not intended to be carried in condition one but to be cocked with your thumb or non shooting hand. They didn't want the sights on the way so they moved them forward.

    Beautiful.
