    I just don't like the big beavertails all that much. Would like to have the small beavertail off of the New Agent.

    The New Agent's style sight are not technically the Guttersnipe sight of inventor Paris Theodore.

    These are the original "Guttersnipe's."

    Not technically "Guttersniped" but a gutter or trench site, yes. It comes that way from Colt.

    Since we have many younger members who may not know that these "1911s" ever even existed.....


    No "Official" 1911 Thread would be complete without a photo of a genuine original SEECAMP DA Conversion.
    I believe that Seecamp only did around 2,000 of them in total.





    And then there was the COONAN ARMS .357 MAGNUM 1911 which fed and fired the .357 Magnum Revolver Cartridge.




    And then....a Punch & Sawcut Lanyard Loop Magazine.
    Notice how the mag feed lips were originally configured back when the 1911 only fed Mil Hardball.

    Here's two of the three that I have. A 1918 Colt Model 1911 sporting a World War II Augusta Arsenal rebuild that I bought for myself on my 21st birthday back in 1978 and a Colt Gold Cup that I purchased new in about 1981. I also have a Remington Rand 1911A1 but don't have a photo of it for some reason.



    For a brief history lesson here's a cruddy looking but entirely shootable example of the very first Colt .45 automatic. It predates all 1911 guns. It is a Colt Model 1905.

    The only one I have so far, and my EDC. Para Ordnance Warthog with Hogue grips, extended MSH and recently added EGW FPS with small radius. Right now the controls are NP3. I eventually hope to have the gun finished in Ionbond with polished flats on the slide. If I could get a grip safety in stainless steel I would replace all the controls in stainless steel. Since I can't do that I'll probably get Cera-plate as the NP3 on the grip safety is darkening for some reason.

    First 1911 but I'm sure there will be more to follow... the contagious 1911 fever
