    Anyone have anything from Springfield Armory?

    (Rumor has it that they aren't doing anything for it.)

    Say it ain't so....

    Why do they insist on putting adjustable target sights on most of these? I realize that that is a "premium" feature, but it (for me) kills the look of a gun that will be a safe queen. That Colt with the ivory is my favorite.

    The one of a kind Colt and Browning matched set are being sold on gunbroker. Last time I checked the Colt was 82K and the Browning was 10K. Surprisingly, I think my favorite has been the Kimber with the case hardened frame. Which is a SHOCK because I usually just think Kimber is okay and hate case hardened guns. The engraved Ed Brown is a close second place. IMHO the Les Baer while certainly will shoot well, lacks in the style department.

    Very cool, Im not much of a 1911 fan but might have to pick one of these up just because. Any word on pricing?

    Love the Kimber
    BUT
    Would rather see fixed sights and stag grips
    That Frame is GORGEOUS

    Engrave "1911 - 2011" on yours and voila! DIY bubba anniversary edition! :neener:

    I thought they kind of "phoned it in" on the LB, in terms of aesthetics.

    The Kimber is still my favorite for appearance. Yes! Fixed sights and stag grips would have been even better!

    cool pics guys thanks!
    The colts will have the year stamped on them and the engraved one is ok.
    I did like the feel of the small browning 1911-22 as it was comfy and light.
    Also I did like the colt double action 1911 also. very compact and nice looking. A little strong on the trigger pull but it was explained to me so its kinda ok.

    those slide serrations on the smith and wessons are not very attractive at all
    i enjoy the grips though

    thanks for the post!
