Just stopping in to say Hi. Hi! Some of you may have seen me over on the plastic pistol site. I have always enjoyed the 1911 but have been on a budget. I hope to expand on my collection soon, if I can get a job - just retired from the Air Force after 21 years. I have been looking at the SR1911. I do own 2 Norinco "Model of the 1911 Compact"s. They are mainly "USGI" but have the 4.25 inch barrel and full sized frame. One of them I left stock, the other I have changed a few things around. I have changed out the mainspring housing with a Pachmayr "Decelerator" rubber covered main spring housing, Pachmayr rubber covered grip safety, titanium firing pin, Wilson Combat 28lb recoil spring, Crimson Trace Lasergrips (first generation), and Pierce Grips finger grooves.
