Pleased to finally show off my first 1911A1. I've been following this forum for a while, almost as long as I've been searching for a WWII .45. Being fairly local to the Ilion, NY Rem plant, and a longtime Rem fan, I recently purchased a new 1911R1 for my first .45. I decided my collection would never be complete without a matching Rem A1 to go with the R1. So, this is the one I found.... Did the best I could, quickly learned I don't know beans about close-up photography. Although it was pretty dry, I did find a bit of excess oil under grips and internals, wiped down best I could but unfortunately what I smeared around probably messed up some photos. Think I did OK with this purchase, but always willing to hear opinions from the experts. I can try for better photos if anyone wants something specific.
