Default New Girl in the House

Brought home a new girl today, Auto Ordinance 1911A1 only one year old. Bought her on consignment for $400. She has a few dings and needs a good polish and a cleaning (I'll have to figure out the best way to do that) but overall no messed with screws, very little wear, stock sights and all original. I put 100 rounds down range and not a rattle or a jam to be seen. At 15 yards she put 7 in the eyeball so to speak.

I'm going to take my time with her, learn all her curves and how to make her purr, but she looks to be a great addition to the family and she kicks like a god blessed mule.

The best news ... when I brought this new beauty home, I found that my old useless ex gf who was crashing on my couch had moved out!! Swap one yucky icky girl for one sexy lovely new girl ... Best ... Day ... Ever!

Excellent choice and purchase . Now I'm gonna have to get a Springfield 1911a1 once I've got the money .

I just field stripped her to have a look and I dont think the slide stop has ever been removed. I think someone bought this gun last year, couldn't handle the kick, and put her up for consignment ... barrel has almost no wear at all. She just needs a cleaning and a few thousand rounds down the tube.

I love the original style 1911's, just something about them. Looks like you got a catch, and she's a looker.

Those 1911A1s do just have that look. My daughter (The Lovely Miss Freefall) told me that when I die that's the one she cares about. The Kimber, the Dan Wesson, meh. That old gov't model is the one.
