    Hi, I am a retired US Navy Senior Chief who has a passion for the 1911. Before I went into the Navy I had no experience with firearms. I was trained on the 1911 pistol and through my career when assigned to security duties it was my sidearm of choice. I received further training while assigned to Subase Bangor Security department from the Marine Corps Cadre assigned to the department. They helped me to qualify Expert on the 1911. I remember those old 1911 pistols made by Springfield Armory, they actually rattled when you shook then Lol! The 1911 is a timeless design by that Genius JM Browning. I only own 4 pistols now, my real passion is long distance shooting with my Savage 10 and my FN FNAR. 2 out of 4 of my pistols are 1911's. My favorite is my Para Ordnance P14.45 Limited stainless, it was Canadian made and I tore it down and polished the internals and it is an excellent shooter. My other 1911 is the Rock Island BBR 3.10 which I use as my everyday carry gun. As you can see I do love the double stack 1911. The RIA BBR can use the old Para P10 13 round magazines with some dremel work on the mag catch on the magazine. I carry the BBR with the factory 10 round mag, I added a pinky extension that was made for the Para P10, minor dremel work required. I carry the 13 rounder as a backup mag. I also found out that with some modification grips from the Para P10 will fit on the RIA BBR. I have a set of faux stag grips made for the P10 on my BBR. Love to tinker with my 1911's.

    Welcome to the forum, nice pistols. I had a weapons card for an Ithaca 1911A1 I carried occasionally while in the Army.

    Hi Gunslngr, enjoyed our conservation in the other thread. Turns out we’re sorta neighbors, I’m down in Dade Co.
    If you can't stand the answers, don't ask the questions.

    It's easier to get forgiven then it is to get permission.
