    I will soon be the proud owner of a Randall 1911A1 SS pistol.

    I sent the payment & FFL to CT today.

    I am already suffering from NUGS.

    I currently own two SS 1911s' an AMT Hardballer (5" barrel) & a Sig GSR with rail.

    I always said when I got my Randall that I would quite buying 1911 pistols.

    I hope I can keep that promise.

    Berto, good choice on the Randall and a great investment. Just remember, never make promises you can't ( or don't want) to keep. :D

    If you need help with breaking in the pistol, sent it my way. :)

    Thanks for the offer Shooter, but I'm sure I can handle it. lol

    I have NUGS already from not being able to shoot several new pistols that I bought this winter.

    Good afternoon Berto! Say will you tell me what the attraction of the Randall is? I just saw one on another site, is there some interesting history on them or just a great maker of firearm? Just curious friend. Man! I can't quit reading this site

    Gotta love those 1911's. God meant it to be!

    Well,

    Looks like I now have the Randall "bug".

    The day after my Service Model arrived, I found a General LeMay mod. Randall that I'm dealing on now.

    I admit it, I'm hopeless, but I love 1911's.

    Fired the Randall Service Model today.

    I'm in LOVE! Beautiful light crisp trigger and great to hold and fire.

    But Randall was the first all stainless "fit for duty". Actually it was the first to not have the galling (sp) probs that were so bad on the early AMT and other all stainless autos.
