    Yet another 1911...and another Detonics at that!

    Armslist produces another fine pistol for my 1911 collection. I found this original Seattle Detonics Combat Master and again, it was very hard to pass on it for the price. I bought it from the original owner who have owned it for 20 years. It has some light but even wear of the finish but it gives it some character, I actually like it. The gentleman told me he has only shot about 300 rnds. It is not as nice as the other one I bought not so long ago as his son took it apart and while trying to put it back together, he scratched the frame with the slide stop. Still, for $550 I thought it was a steel so I jumped on the it and brought it home today. Here are some pics all cleaned and lubed up!




    Now they keep each other company:

    I've always liked Detonics... Fine firearms and the name just sounds cool :)

    Congrats on the new acquisition!

    Beautiful. O have to admit that I've never heard of this brand before. :(

    Congrats, Indio. As far as I'm concerned you can never have too many 1911's. Guess that means I'd better get on the ball and acquire a few more myself!
