    I have the extruded mags............very well form fitting...........the nylon followers work very well...........they're scalloped out to aid in feeding that last round, and to help keep the others properly seated

    pics are here

    ok I think I did it.
    i took some pics of some others. need to get the rest on here.
    let me know what you think, and if it was a good purchase, I think the officers colt might go up for sale. it is just too close to the kimber, and I could replace with a different 1911. like a Stainless Kimber 5''.

    Think the serial number for the frame of my Remington Rand is here? I'll check tonight. I've always wondered what year it was made....

    I'm thinking...........if it's blue............about 525.00 to 595.00 for the Officers...........Stainless might be about 600.00 to 635.00
    LOL............What is the Exchange rate in bananas? hehehe

    Ex,

    Excellent sir, and you're more than welcome!

    Do you have any pics you could post? I have a real warm spot for the USGI pistols and old Commercials.

    I'll work on that. Got a good digital camera that I'm learning to use. Maybe this weekend. Got my IDPA match and I'll definitely be taking shots of the new toy and the two new holsters...oh and the new cut of my beard! Goatee.
