    I’m partial to small 1911s in .45. This one also happens to be my birth year. I occasionally come across these blinged-out 1911s on GB that look like some cartel guy should be carrying it. What do you guys think about these gold-plated 1911s? Do any of you have any like this...

The slide top was milled flat and slightly raised - almost like it was intended to be a rib. The gun wears a rear sight of combat configuration (3-dot) but which has the cutout at the...

    I found a really nice used Colt Government Series 80 in a store yesterday, and am tempted to buy it. Only thing is, I think I’d rather have a Mark IV Series 70. If you have both, which do you prefer, and why?
