I'm still pretty new to the 1911 world. My Valor hasn't even broke a thousand rounds yet. So I still have a few questions about 'em.
On nearly every custom ordered gun, and a lot of the high price tag guns people have their barrel and bushing cut to be flush with one another, and often have the barrel reverse crowned. I understand the appeal, It's looks pretty nice when you see some Wilsons, Wessons, Nighthawks, Springfields, etc with that reverse cut barrel. It really shows the time and effort put into the gun.
I thought this would be a great post for everyone. It offers everyone the ability to brag on their favorite production non / custom line 1911. Offering all members the opportunity to give their vote. In addition to the manufacturer and model, I would also ask you state the reasoning behind your statement! It can be any sub $2,000.00 1911 if it's not on the list place it in the thread and I will add it to the list. Please state if you are suggesting the pistol be added to the list and / or voting on it as well.
I know this may be very hard for some of you, but can you pick just one favorite, from your collection?
Post a pic or tell us what that would be please. I look forward to seeing addicted people's favorite 1911 especially of this group. Be it in photo or in print.
A couple years ago I picked up an AO 1911 because I wanted a WWII repro. Well it didn't take long to realize that I didn't much like the repro after all. Don't get me wrong, it was a great gun and was flawless. Except for the sights, I wanted to shoot it and the sights were worthless.
So I moved on from there.
Replace the trigger and tuned it to 3 lbs (this was to be a range gun). The internals were high quality so I was able to tune it without replacing anything, pretty good considering that when tuning a 1911 from RIA I usually need to replace everything.
What's your favorite gun lube?
