    A little late for an April Fools joke, don't you think?

    Look at the date of the article - April 1st. This was CTD's April Fools Day prank. It is still a hoax.

    I THOUGHT it might have been a hoax! The thing that tipped me off is the fact that there is no notch in the slide for the safety or slide stop.

    Other the ugle gun I'm pretty sure the part where I decided it wasn't real was when they called it a "game changer." That clearly makes it a Red Jacket Custom Glock/1911.

    Usually means its a hoax if someone says "I thought it was a hoax, but its not!"

    Should Glock ever make a 1911, I imagine it will be an abomination similar to the link in OP.

    There isn't a weapons manufacturer in the world that could create a 1911 that would be a "game changer"

    How about a 1911 without the "toggling link" attached to the barrel. Instead it could operate like the Browning Hi-Power using the cam and bar. Also use an external extractor.

    S&W was able to use the external extractor with success.

    I've wondered if the "power extractor" Para-Ordnance designed and manufactured would have worked if they made higher quality MIM parts or machined parts.

    Clearly you haven't seen the Red Jacket 1911, it's better than all other 1911s because some people in harm's way bought 4 of them for $17,000.

    It's easy to pick on Owen Sparks for missing some pretty obvious tells in that description, but if someone would have told me 3 years ago that we'd have a major manufacturers cranking out zombie-themed ammo, grips, holographic sights, and other bits, I would have thought it was a joke.

    Who knows what the future will hold.

    If you guys want to discuss a game-changer 1911, please start a new thread so we don't rehash this old joke anymore

    Thanks.
