    You guys HAVE to read the stories about his machine gun tests and 1911 tests.

    Hey merc, how about you send me your address by pm and I will send you the book. When you are done with it send it to SG if he wants to read it. I have two of them. Blackgun gave me this one, so I just as well pass it on.

    The 1911 is a combat handgun.


    There is no substitute.
    It was designed for the G.I. in the field.
    It was designed so the G.I. could completely strip it down to the bare frame using only the internal parts as the tool box and one .45 round to remove the grips. How in the hell would you replace a spring loaded extractor? By carrying one with you........I do not think so.

    Mr. Browning got it right the first time.
