@Edward14 I have since installed some VQ parts...trigger, sear, springs and such. Really works great, trigger is like silk. Now to get some new glasses so I can see past 7 yards...

boutaswell - THANK YOU for your service. That is one fine photo image! I own a MkII Gov't Target Model bought new mid '90's. It can get my mind right at the range, and helps an ex-swab jockey relate. True zen at about 10c/shot.

@gndboy, I hate to admit this but I only recently bought the MarkII, about 8 months ago and it was used and I only paid $125 for it. Needed a bit of cleaning and as I said above, I've replaced some internals with VQ stuff and have since installed some Williams Fire Sights; man, what a difference they made. Well worth the money.

I have replaced the trigger, sear, thumb safety and bushing on the 1911A1 and a couple of days ago, installed a 15# recoil spring and a 19# hammer spring. I did have a 14# hammer spring but it made the hammer so light that although it would still fire no problem, it made the hammer so light to cock that it worried me that maybe just "snagging" the trigger on my shirt or anything like that would cock the hammer. I normally carry condition 1 but on those times when it might be condition 2, it was so easy to cock that I moved the hammer spring back up to a 19# yesterday. Much, much better and more comfy. I can deal with that. The reason I changed the springs to start with is it was actually kind of difficult to rack the slide, the springs were so strong. Oh well, enough, especially since I don't know if this thing notifies you of a response or not and it might be 10 years before you read this. :-) Thanks for your comments and yes, the MarkII is my main stress reliever since I can buy a brick of .22 for what I pay for a box of 50 for the .45.

Well all I noticed was the Mustard-Stain. I was a Red Devil for 9 years.

And here all this time I thought it was the woodworking and guns people were interested in. I think you're the 1st person that has noticed the "mustard stain". I was with B 3/319AFAR and was the Bn Fire Support NCO(White Devil 67) for 2/504 from 89-92. It's amazing, the Army let me be Airborne from 74-77 then made me be a leg from 77-89 and then sent me to Bragg for my "retirement tour".

The same thing happened to me. I was part of the re activation of the 101st in 1956 and shortly there after transferred to the 11th in Germany and they deactivated within three months of my arrival. I was assigned to the 101st for three tours in Vietnam but in aviation units. Retired in '77.

Hey Sarge, Awesome photo. All America (Sky Soldier here). I noticed the gold star on your wings, where did you earn that? Sand box?
