After going back in a time machine, grabbing a M1911 blued Colt off the line, then jumping forward and scooping up a 1943 Colt's that?

A lightweight 1911 that field-strips as easily as a Glock. And equally reliable.

(Current favorites: S&W Scandium Commander, Glock 30 and 19)

Mmmm.... Well here's the number one pistol on my list:

March 2, 2007, 01:22 PM
mine would be some sort of Ed Brown or NightHawk Custom high price 1911

March 2, 2007, 01:23 PM
Should have this pistol ( by June. I honestly can't think of anything I'd change about it.

March 2, 2007, 01:28 PM
A Les Baer or Wilson.

USMC Tanker

H&K MK23 .45 ACP, complete with SOCOM accessories package (supressor included). That would be my choice for my TACTICOOL Dream Pistol.

My general dream pistol would be a USMC MEU (SOC) M1911 in good condition, that saw service in Iraq, Afghanistan, or both. This pistol obviously would have been picked over and upgraded by the USMC Precision Weapon Section in Quantico, VA.

I'd be stoked with either one! :what:

Texas Colt

A Colt Gunsite CCO.

If I could take that time machine ride that Dead mentioned, it would be a Colt New Service revolver in .45 Colt with a 4" barrel and a Colt Fitz Special.

March 2, 2007, 02:32 PM
Right now I'd probably go with a CZ 75 TS. That Witness Elite looks pretty nice too.

March 2, 2007, 02:51 PM
I don't have any pics but...
A chrome DE in .50 AE with 1000 rounds of ammo. And a holster :evil:
A Para 14.45 5" Stainless 1911 with a colt slide, all custom internals and barrel, tru-glos with tritium, compensated, magwell, etc, etc.
A S&W .38 spl 5 shot snubbie (I do not know my model #'s yet)
A S&W .44 spl 5 shot snubbie (I do not know my model #'s yet)
A S&W 625 in stainless
Ruger Alaskan in .45LC/.454 Casull (nickel plate this one)
Ruger Speed-Six stainless 3" barrel (might as well engrave it, tribal, not scrolls)
Para Carry 9
Para Warthawg
Wait, did you say one? :D :D :D :D

For the past two years, I've been longing for & searching for a Daewoo in the .45acp here in the United States....Extremely elusive in this country...In "fast-action", I would be in "hog-heaven"...:p

March 2, 2007, 03:07 PM

I know its not Pistol but this straight from colt full auto, with over 50,000 rounds of high quality ammo. Wait it needs a laser too.:neener:

March 2, 2007, 03:13 PM
The 1911 my grandfather carried in WWII. Alas, who knows what happened to it.

Yost Caspian Titanium framed Commander, Arched titanium MS housing, Titanium grip safety with an unmarked SS slide original style slide serrations on the rear only and SS for the other tiny bits. YOBO repro sights and a light rounding job on the bottom of the grip frame. Teak checkered grips and SS screws. The only things blued would be my Sistema one piece trigger and a old USGI style thumb safety.

March 2, 2007, 04:15 PM
Mine would be a 4" blue Colt Python wearing stag grips with gold Colt medalions :cool:

March 2, 2007, 04:28 PM
No Laughing:

A Sig X-5 in .357Sig with fixed sights and 20 round mags with a tac rail for lights.

Barring that I'd love to get a 229 Elite (fingers crossed for soon!).

Also I want to get my 239 the robar treatment!

March 2, 2007, 04:32 PM
A 6" Python would be my dream gun.

Since this is the semiauto forum, my second choice would be a Sig 210.

I'd settle for a good quality longslide 1911 or a CZ97 and be happy though.

March 2, 2007, 04:57 PM
take that back ill take a sig x-six yes i said x-6 they dont import them :fire: :cuss:

March 2, 2007, 08:12 PM

But it's not a dream...:D

March 2, 2007, 08:17 PM
NIB Colt Magnum Carry

March 2, 2007, 08:56 PM
colt magnum carry wth is that? :confused: :eek: pics would help

March 2, 2007, 09:03 PM
An XD-SC w/ a 3.5" barrel in .357 sig for carry, and if it really were a dream gun id have Pearce Grip make a +1 pinky extender like they do for the Glock 27.. or a regular XD 4" service chambered in 10mm, but without the bulkier grip that the .45 has:D

I just love XDs, but i don't like that the SC models have only a 3" barrel. I'd love the extra half inch to get higher velocities and a longer sight radius.

March 2, 2007, 09:13 PM

March 2, 2007, 09:15 PM
dont mean to hijack the thread but cp shooter they make aftermarket barrels in 357 for that sc yahoo search it

March 2, 2007, 10:46 PM
I'll skip the RPKS, MG42, and UMP45, as I usually impose strict realism, even in daydreams. For me:

Italian-manufacture Beretta 92G (decocker only). Or, really, any Italian 92.

HK VP70z.

HK P7, old or new.


Walther P88.

Just the right Colt 1911, Series 70 or earlier.

So, my dreams are relatively humble. :)

March 3, 2007, 12:02 AM
too many out there but here goes. If I could afford the time travel here is couple I would pick.

1. The second 45 acp Luger for the 1911 army pistol tests.

2. Any one of the Colt 1911 hand built by the master himself for the 1911 army pistol tests.

Fast forward to today.

A Yost custom Springfield Operator or a NightHawk Vickers Tactical with light rail.

Too many good ones to pass up, but these are what came to me first.:cool: :cool:

March 3, 2007, 12:09 AM
A nickel plated, fully engraved, real ivory stocked Colt 1911.

March 3, 2007, 12:26 AM
1. The second 45 acp Luger for the 1911 army pistol tests.

Wow. Army trials .45 Luger. Not exactly "my thing", as such, but I must admit, that's a really good one. :)

March 3, 2007, 12:58 AM
Clark 38. I am working on it.

March 3, 2007, 01:05 AM
I have 2 dreams - that the guy I sold my HK 91 & 93 to has a change of heart & gives them back to me :scrutiny: and that P7M7 I've wanted forever is left in my computer bag by accident :scrutiny:

March 3, 2007, 09:31 AM
1. The second 45 acp Luger for the 1911 army pistol tests.
how about the first one :neener: it got destroyed :( but if your going for that you might as well go for the p7m7 gosh they are both so beautiful

March 3, 2007, 10:31 AM
Dream guns I don't see me getting any time soon: Walther P-88 and a Sig P-210.

Dream gun I will get sometime soon: Customized High Power.

March 3, 2007, 11:50 AM
Easy answer for me. Full house 1911 by Richard Heinie.

March 5, 2007, 12:40 AM
I'm with Deadmarsh 100%.

March 5, 2007, 01:20 AM
a .40 s and w 1911 in commander size.

March 5, 2007, 01:30 AM
Wilson Combat 1911 Tactical Super Grade, 2 tone stainless/black with Punisher grips, a compensator, and hologram sight scope :evil:

March 5, 2007, 03:44 AM
One I can't miss with, preferably in 45ACP.

March 5, 2007, 09:38 AM
Wilson Combat "Bill Wilson Signature Super Grade". Only 50 made, $6K per - if you can get on the list to buy one.

March 5, 2007, 10:25 AM
I have this on hold at work. It's been my dream pistol for a while.

March 5, 2007, 12:06 PM
I'd have Ned Christiansen ( or Paul Liebenberg (Pistol Dynamics) build for me a bespoke 1911. Either that or a Wilson Tactical Supergrade.

March 5, 2007, 12:39 PM
Any machinegun made after 1986, preferably the FN-SCAR. Repeal 922(o)!

March 5, 2007, 01:57 PM
Id like an HK

pistol speaking, something from Wilson Combat would be nice, but I really do like a mag that packs more than 7-8 rds... so Im undecided..

So much good hardware out there now, ya know!


Smith & Wesson Man
March 5, 2007, 02:15 PM
For me it would be a sig 210 or a smith performance center model 952.
