Okay, so I won't bore everyone with my 1911 story. Lets just say that I am a Glock/CZ shooter who bought a Kimber some time ago and got rid of it after it continued to malfunction. Here's my question: Why doesn't anybody make a REAL 1911-A1 pistol? I'm talking about a real pre-series 70 1911-A1 like those that were produced in the THOUSANDS by non-firearms companies WITHOUT COMPUTERS and were generally excellent, reliable, COMBAT firearms. I would buy a REAL 1911-A1 pistol in a heartbeat. No 1970s Colt "toilet" bushing, no 1980s firing pin block safety, no stupid front slide serrations, no dumb backstrap lawyer-lock, no "schwartz" system (I don't even know what that is, but i've heard it's no good)! I simply don't understand why a gun that was mass produced in the pre-computer age (and was good) cannot be produced today, at a reasonable price, EXACTLY as it was when it worked its best! My grandpa's WWII pistol (he served in China during the war) sounds like a baby rattle and looks like hell but it DON'T JAM WITH BALL AMMO, and it is accurate enough. I want a gun like that. Okay, there, now can anyone answer my question.
