Long time 1911 owner, bought my first one new in 1979 when I was in college. Currently own two Colts, one Kimber, one Norinco custom, one Rock Island custom. In process of building a copy of a late 60's Camp Perry match 1911 with vintage original parts (Hard Slide, NM barrel and bushing etc.) and a new aftermarket frame as a nice shooter. Enjoy punching holes in paper and reloading.
