Sig 1911 Scorpion Traditional. I switched out the Piranha G10 grips for smooth black G10's. Springfield stainless mil spec bone stock. Both function perfectly. I like the Sig as a modern reincarnation of the 1911 and I like the Springfield for it's basic purity. Both are great guns.

Not a Ruger, but I do like it. S&W Performance Center 1911.


Still my favorite for a take it along 1911, our SA Mil Spec. Probably more my style than the fancy S&W.

Here's my Ruger SR1911 ... slightly modified to suit my needs for a combat configuration. I replaced the straight mainspring housing with a steel arched MSH, installed Wilson extended slide lock and thumb safety. I also installed a set of Pachmayer finger groove wrap around grips.



This gun looks a lot like a Ruger but if you look a bit closer, it's a Kimber Classic Target model. It has a fully adjustable rear sight with a higher front sight. It also has a match grade barrel and bushing. A great bullseye gun!

Well if you're only gonna own one THAT's a nice lookin' choice! Very cool!
Yes I agree. The story was I had seen one of these several years back and just fell in love with it, but because of its price tag couldn't do, it. Then the lgs sold it. Well I made my mind up if they got another I wanted it. Well 5 or 6 months later they got 1 in. I purchased it, and have loved it ever since. It wasn't easy on the bank account, but is on the eyes. Kimber no longer makes this version, or hasn't since maybe 2010, or 2011. Its a short guide rod, comes with trijicon night sights, target trigger, and is more accurate than I am. They made 4 versions the short(carry), pro and 2 different full, size custom versions one with a rail, one without.


If I may buy a second it would be a kimber warrior, black with tan grips, or a Colt Delta Elite in 10mm, then alter it to my liking since the delta elite just looks to plain, but the 10mm is a force to be reckoned with.:D

I have also always had a love for the colt defender, just a neat, good feeling pistol, never fired one though.;)

Just got it (used) about three weeks ago. I ditched the FLGR and shaved the ambi safety off...now it's just how I would design a 1911. Love it (especially the bobtail)!

Might as well throw in some Ruger porn! My buddy's two SR1911s...

I really liked them except for the MSH digging into my mitts and I wanted nite sights...got a good deal on the S&W and didn't look back...
