Show off your 1911

Not to everybody’s taste, of course. And to be honest, I was hoping for one a bit less ‘busy’ looking, for lack of a better term. Also with ledge rear and no dots. ( Standard Manufacturing offers no options; I asked). Venerable.45 of course.

But it’s distinctive, has front & back grip checking. DEAD-ON accurate !
(an acquaintance of mine - 20+ yrs LEO & instructor - tried it and verified;) )

Anybody else with one, pls PM me. Got some questions about fading of case hardening and clearcoating.

With a 1791 holster might make a good BBQ gun.

Everyone have a great weekend.

That is a neat looking pistol, case hardening looks awesome
 
Here's the Colt Combat Commander I bought in 1973, brand new for $135.00. Made payments for three months on layaway, since that amount was close to our house payment at the time. It's been a great shooter, but the trigger on my SA Loaded is even better. Next purchase will be a blued Garrison, not on layaway this time.

1973 Combat Commander got in a trade back in the early 2000's for $200 + reloaded ammo, thought I got a good deal until I realized the grip safety didn't work at all.

After a complete internals overhaul it's been on my side typically during the Winters here (it rusts easily during the sweaty Summers) :rolleyes:

Only other thing I've had done is to send it off to get Big Dot Express sights to aid my aging eyes :love:

Tisas are good guns, you can't beat them.
