My 1911

Here's a pic of my Springfield Armory loaded MC Operator. I recently got back into shooting and have put 1200 rounds through it since January. I just got a new cobra mag that I am looking forward to trying out tomorrow.

Funny you post that. I recently had a deal available to me that was very similar. Unfortunatley I sat on the offer and let the deal pass up as I didn't have the cash (read: needed Jeep crap, lol)

Since you have had a few rounds through it what is your opinion/feedback? I have always been happy with Springfield in the past...

I can honestly say its the best handgun I have owned. I have not had a single issue with it. It's a better gun than I am a shooter, haha.

And it's just like the damn jeep, looking forward to modding it.

Those are some nice looking 45's! My 1911 is an a model A that looks like it has been through both world wars. It probably has, now that I think about it. Anyway, it's beat to ****, but I love it. I wish it could talk. I am sure there are some stories it could tell.

I will get some pictures up this weekend. I am at work until 2200 tonight, so some time in the next three days I'll get some pictures up. I have an old military 38 too, if you want me to take a few of that one, too. I mean, since I will have the safe open and all

I agree! I have a few weapons that are of WW2 era, but I do not know anything about where they were used. I have a "parts" Garand made from war era parts, an IBM M1 carbine, a Carcano carbine and a big old Mason Nagant rifle with a nice and clean Commie stamp, dated 1943. I wish they could talk!

Thumbs up

Its good to see these classics still out there, I was just looking at the springfield site today at their modern offerings of the 1911. After all these years, the design is still close to perfection. Nice handguns guys!

Mosin-Nagant's are cool! My uncle has several of them...when the big gun show comes through here I am going to be on the look out for one. Something with a lot of history that you can pick up cheap. I'll also be looking for an sks. I used to have an older Springfield M14, favorite gun I have owned! Of course they cost so damn much now I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon.

I want a Thompson M1A1, a BAR, a MP40, and a few other things I will never be able to get in California. I probably would not be able to afford getting them all before I died anyway, they are so damn expensive. Lucky for me, I have the use of some cool stuff. I just cant take them from the range.

I got some new VZ grips for myself for Christmas. I also have a Smith and Alexander mag guide on the way that should be here any day now. I'll post up some pics of it after I install it.
