Got me a new 1911 about 2 hours ago. Plan on losing it when I go fishing this weekend. Dang boat rocks so much!

Good choice!

John C. Browning's classic 1911 design is still going strong after 100 years in service and millions of examples manufactured.

I just built a 1911 in 9MM/.38Super from a Capian frame, Essex slide and various other pieces. Feels great in your hand and works like a champ! I won't give up my Glocks, but this is a fun range toy that can double as a open carry sidearm with style.

I'm starting work on another 1911 in .45ACP/.400Corbon tonight. Should have it together in about a week or two.

I have to keep getting new ones for the same reason. I can never seem to keep a grip on them when I go fishing. There must be hundreds of guns at the bottom of that lake.

YEP THE old Slab side 45 from John Moses Browning in the most imitated weapon in the world, but no matter what these “ Johnie come Latelys” do they cannot improve on it. How about the Browning Hi Power, that was introduced just before the 1st world war, and it is still going strong. You cannot improve on perfection/

Excuse me? So which is it?

Guys with revolvers can do cylinder switches, but I didn't know someone could do that with an autoloader.
