I heard about this story a while back, and made a meme for it. You may have seen this online. Also a dig at Glock fanboys, since they're always dissing the 1911, when the 1911 works just fine and has been in military service for over 70 years!

I have this model - the 1911A1 milspec - and I absolutely love it. I put SA's walnut "U.S." grips on it for added authenticity.

Nice....

But...GI 1911’s (or 1911A1’s) never had a “US” logo on the grips...that’s just something Springfield added for bling.

1911A1’s were mostly just checkered wood, later were brown plastic...early 1911’s had, iirc, double diamond style checkered grips.
