I grew up in the world of bolt guns, were pre 64 model 70's and pre Garcia sako's were spoken of in hushed and reverent tones.

I'm a fan of the 1903 sprinfield and the M1 Garand I really want to get both... but I think the 1911 is a epic history firearm I also need to get one.

Thanks!

It was a pretty lil thing; it looks like the forward area of the wood stock took some damage. Nicely carved grip area, IMO.
I have lusted after some reproductions of that type & thought they would be fun once in a while.

Well, it has to be a toss-up between matchlocks/flintlocks, but Civil War carbines excite me. Amazing period and Yankee Ingenuity on parade -- I fell in love with them studying mechanical drawings of their actions before I think I'd ever known what I was looking at in real life.
