The miniature 1911 in the first 2 pics is a full disassembly + 3 magazine-loadable cartridges (will not chamber a round). 1/3 scale all metal construction. Slide, hammer and trigger operate. From RWminis.com. Also offer an AK-47, a couple of M-16s, a Barrett and a WWII Mauser w/sniper scope. Seems they were all in the $45. range. Stag grips in the 1st pic grouping are handmade.

    Last pic is an Umarex Legends Limited Edition (500) WWII Commemorative. The rectangular watch case shows a 3 cent Iwo Jima stamp with a few grains of black Iwo volcanic sand. Pins represent the main USMC units that assaulted/took Iwo Jima in 1945.

    Very nice group of 1911s. And yea, always want more. Picked this up a little over a week ago. I think that puts me at 10.

    Every time I get tempted by a polymer frame, I end up thinking, I guess I'd really rather have another 1911.

    For me, 1911s and CZ 75 variants rule! Classics both.

    I like polymers for carry, but for an all around great shooter, I like full steel (or alloy) frames. 1911, CZ75 and their ilk scratch that itch for me.

    My latest, only, and probably last-

    '67 Colt Meuse-Argonne Commemorative 1911 (non A1).

    I like 1911s just fine, but one good one is enough for me. :)

    I love my 1911 .45’s... but for some reason I can’t find an image of my 1911 V-16 long slide .45 Super... oh well, the SA loaded and Ruger SR 1911 commander will have to do..

    I posted individual photos in the other 1911 thread so I think in this one it's time for a family photo:

    Very cool Bannockburn snd Howland937! I like the progression from larger to smaller 1911’s in those pics.

    The bright nickel plated Combat Commander was part of a limited run done by Colt's Custom Gun Shop over 40 years ago. Besides the bright nickel it had an MMC rear sight, a Gold Cup trigger, and was tuned and accurized by the Custom Shop's gunsmiths. It's incredibly reliable, will feed just about anything, and will go head to head in terms of accuracy with any Gold Cup; all without being finicky about the ammo.

    It's definitely one of my all-time favorites!
