Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Grips are like a sexy dress you buy for your GF.

The more the merrier.

Replacing grips is non-destructive.

Would I change them on these?

Cane, this dog might be the cuttest dang picture, of the cuttest dog ever taken by a human! My GF said to say thanks for posting it.

Guys,

I do respect your opinion on keeping classics and collectables the way they are. But, here in germany we have a slightly different mentality on these things.
As I mentioned a few times in other threads, firearm ownership here in germany is somewhat different and also more complicated, than in most states in the US.

I own firearms for target shooting only and for competition reasons.
Therefor I will have to have the sights changed on the 1911, unfortunately.

I really regret having to do this, but everything else is just to compicated here. It`s a real painin the ass.
And setting it up to become a competition pistol will raise it`s price here in germany, as collectabels here have to be much older, then a 1977 MK IV Series 70.
A 1911 from 1912, that would be a collectable.

But if I point all the remarks correctly, then the mentioned 1911 is worth getting.

Can anybody tell me, what type ammo runs best ad what ammo is crap in that pistol?
Shooting distance is 25m
