Welcome to M1911.ORG

Happy Easter
To all those who celebrate it tomorrow.

On a side note, it took us a little longer
than expected, to get the site up and running
again, after last night maintenance work.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

    the people in the philippines are so attached and familiar with the 1911 pistols that in fact they can manufacture units in their backyard. i wouldn't be surprised if a decent manufacturer can cough up very good specimens
    Colt made the 1911 tradition. Norinco made it more popular because of the price.

    Right on niceone...the manufacturers of 1911s and other guns in the Philippines are: Armscor, Shooters Arms, Metro Arms and the backyard industries mostly revolvers though.

    You should see some of the guns that were customized locally there. Really nice. Maybe San Jose could post some pics, ;-).

    ah yes. the customizations in that country can give very good competition for vickers, heinie, ed brown, wilson and more. man. those customizations will cost you and arm and the whole you. but the cost in that country is dirt cheap. very good gunsmiths in that part of the world
