Default 1911 Resume

I post a lot of stuff about 1911s so I figured it's time to post a list of the 1911 brands & types I have owned:

Armscor, Citadel, Colt, Dan Wesson, High Standard, Kimber, Para Ordnance, Rock Island, and Springfield. (I've had multiples of nearly all of them) I've had them in 9mm, .40, and .45 (and .22 conversions) and in barrel lengths of 3, 3.5, 4, 4.25, 5, and 6 inches.

Before someone jumps on me about the Armscor, while they make the RIAs, Citadels, and High Standards (and others) - they also imported guns with their own rollmark for a short time in the early 2000s...

My first 1911 was a Springfield Mil Spec that I had Springfield Custom work on and Novak's install sights. Second was a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special, then a Dan Wesson Commander Bobtail, briefly, very briefly, a pos RIA Tactical and my current love, a customized and rebuilt 1927 Sistema built in 1959.

My first was a Colt that was stolen shortly after I bough it. My second was a ParaOrdnance P14-45. For the third one, I want one of the Argentine 1911 variants, either a Sistema 1927 or a Ballester Molina. They are a must for any Argentine 1911 lover!

One of the neatest little guns I ever had was a Star BM compact 9mm that looked and operated much like a 1911. I sold it as parts are near impossible to find. JD will be along shortly and chide me for never having owned a Nighthawk...
