The Ithaca 1911
i was really stoked about this gun until i found out it had checkered front strap, checkered mainsprig housing (i like the ones that are lined, adjustable sights, beaver tail grip safety, front sight is dovetailed not staked, full length stainless guide rod. all those are negatives in a 1911 to me.
too much bs to convert it to an A1 configuration and removing the front checkering and front dovetail is not possible. so i lost any interest in this one. while i would love to have a modern ithaca i want it to be an A1.
