I honestly believe most experienced shooter's will say the 1911 platform is what all semi auto handguns are measured to and for good reason. Most but not all 1911's are considered very accurate, smoth action and very realiable. Like with all handguns with similar features you get what you pay for when it comes to choosing a 1911. I use to own a Kimber Eclipse and with out question was the finest shooting semi auto I have ever owned.

With that said I didn't carry the pistol often, I expect I could have gotten use to carrying it but just didn't. I spent a lot of time finding what fits me best for daily carry and found the S&W M&P 45. IMO it has the feel of a 1911 and fits me better. I believe I gave up a little but if I will carry it every day then it's a fair trade off. Still adding a good quality 1911 to my modest collection is something I will do in the future simply because they are truly the finest semi auto available to us mortals.

Ok, Goju it is a Taurus. Sorry my mistake for not looking at the picture closely. Maybe I do need some glasses or I am still hungover.

Usually the Taurus .44 mags I have seen have Raging Bull printed on the side of the barrel and a blended in rail. I have seen 629's with added rails also. Thank you for pointing that out, several times, it was a Taurus. I will flog myself later Goju, Geezzz

I would seriously be intersted in other options, so far robar is the only one I've found that offers what I want.

I found out that the reason some people make things rust when they touch them is because of their ph levels, typically they are acidic. I've also heard if you lower your sodium intake it helps so....I've started some suppliments to help balance my ph and reduced my salt use which is hard because I never used much salt.

Oh yeah, rustiness is also seen in heavy beer drinkers. Heavy, cheap beer drinkers so stay away from the King Cobras and Colt 45's.

The 1911 is a pistol design that has been around since 1890 something

Actually, it was adopted by the U.S. Military in 1911. It was developed some years before that.

Yeah. A lot of people make that mistake. The initial design of the pistol that would be come the 1911, was designed, and first produced in like 1894 by John Moses Browning. *respect*

The pistol saw a period of testing and trials over a decade and was adopted by the US Military in 1911 and issued in 1912, I believe. But it was officially designed a 1911 because of the year the military said it was good to go.

No harm, a lot of people don't know the history of such a magnificient weapon...

The spear has been around longer, but I don't use one. I'm just sayin'......

The 1911 is an awesome design, period. There's no need to rave about how long it has been around. Many people in the martial arts community rave about their lineage or how long their particular art has been around and that's why it is th3 ult1m4t3 on th3 st43ets!!! Please.............
