just starting to upload photo's now. I'll caption them once i get a chance in my blog. http://photosbydon.smugmug.com/Other/SHOT-Show-2012-Day-1/ quick notes on 1911's -Stopped by and talked to Ed & JoeC. The pair (Lefty - Righty) looked really nice. -The Ithica is a well built gun. all samples were nice and tight. -The Cabot still had some play in the frame/slide fit, so the tolerance of 1/2 a human hair goes out the window (IMO). They had a single frame and 3-4 different slides to go on it, and they all had the same movement. The also had the "South Paw" on display, which threw me off when i tried to lock the slide back and the slide stop was on the wrong side :lol: -RRA has a new polymer 1911 coming out with the target price of $800 (they are hoping) -STI is making families of guns, like the Tactical is now 5", 4" and 3". The Lawman & Spartan also have 3 sizes. They also have a new 2011 "Tactical" magwell coming out. -Nothing new with EB or LB -didn't look at Colt yet. -Talked to Ned Christiansen and Jason Burton for a while. -DW ECO and Specialist are typical DW quality. -Christensen Arms 1911's weren't fit like i was expecting. -Coonan had a "Purple bling" gun there. The trigger on the Coonan wasn't as bad as i thought it would be since it's a pivoting design.
