Hi guys. Time to show off your 1911's. Here are my 2 favorites. The Baer has a new set of skins which fit my hand much better. The Ed Brown is just a dandy to shoot. Let see what you guys shoot.

I liked it, it shot well. It was pretty close in accuracy to the supermatch, but the supermatch actually had some problems and had to go back to kimber. They made it right and quickly. A buddy of mine just had to have it so it went down the road. The raptor helped fund the Brown. Out of the few kimbers I have owned or shot, the raptor was one of the best.

Damn you! A raptor, and 47d mags... Is there a better combo?!


When I was in college, and about to turn 21 I strolled through the local gun store (lets just say we were on first name basis, and I was welcome behind the counter at anytime)... I saw the Raptor in the case shortly before my 21 birthday and my goal as to buy that as my present to myself based on my birthday money, extra paycheck money etc... Well, it being college... That never happened and I have wanted one ever since!

That is the older Baercoat. Nice finish.

I really like the Melonite. Very different finish and tougher than nails.

And I'm a huge fan of hard chrome.

The reissue Series 70 is in line for 2013 for a full-house custom job with this local guy

Nothing fancy about mine, a stainless Kimber Compact, circa 2000.

The Kimber on top was a graduation present for Daughter #3 when she graduated law school at Iowa. Has the laser grip.

[Linked Image]

The other, of course are not 1911's at all. One is the gun I carry in the car daily, a Browning BDM 9mm. The Walther .380 PPK/S gets carried on my person more than any other and is in my pocket as I write, a time zone and then some away from home.

The gun on the left is a Les Baer Custom Carry - the pistol on the right is a Colt that was lightly customized by Ed Brown from the early 80's when he was a one-bench pistolsmith.

I've run 1150 rounds through the parkerized pistol and 600 rounds through the stainless with no feeding or ejection problems; zero. The fit and finish is great on both and they'll shoot better than I can. I think they're worth the $800-$900. Only thing I'd change on either would be the addition of front strap checkering and a bead blasted finish on the stainless.

CIRCA 1976, Lightwieght Commander; Highly customized by Crawley Custom, Kart NM Barre,, 30LPI strap, match trigger, match bushing, yada yada. Shot it once. I hate the color, the O.D. green looks like baby vomit to me, Thinking about having it stripped and re-coated.

Gunchamp - I bought a Springfield Loaded not long after they came out, and it is a sweet-shooting gun. I won A-class at our little action pistol club for a couple years with it. No problems with it at all.

It's a fine pistol all around. Bought it used from the classifieds-has aftermarket sights, I fit a grip safety so I wouldn't get peenched and adjusted the trigger a bit that breaks at 4lbs....and it does shoot very well with everything I've fed it.

Pre series II's. Shot the top one a thousand with cast bullets & no cleaning, zero failures. I did the 30 LPI front strap on the top one, the skateboard tape is just as effective & my elbow thanked me for pushing the easy button.

I've got an even half-dozen right now, no pics, though.

Custom Shop Colt 1991A1, plain-looking, but loaded with neat stuff and a great trigger. .45
Ruger SR 1911T, .45
RIA 10mm 6" Ultra whatevertheycallit.
RIA Standard Rock .45
Springfield Armory Range Officer 9mm (soon to be converted to .38 Super)
Springfield Armory Garrison .45

All of them shoot reasonably well, even the RIAs, which are surprisingly good, and all of them are reliable with the old magazines I've had since forever, and whatever magazines they came with. I like them all, but the newest (the SA Garrison) has the nicest bluing you'd ever want on a production gun, it's a Loaded without the front slide serrations, basically, and it's trigger is tolerable as-is.

Over the years, I've gotten so I don't like a 1911 without a beavertail grip safety, and all of these have that item and the requisite hammers they require.

One of my first handguns was a brand new Series 70 purchased in the early 1980s, just before they switched to Series 80. Another on a long list of guns I wish I never sold. Nice grips.

Elmer, good eye. Those are not stock combat sights. They are Wilson Combat. Excellent sights for this gun. At this point, have no intention of changing back to original. I'll leave that to the next owner.

The holster is from Sam Andrews Leather. That model is one of Sam's Hybrid Saddle Holster models.

Nice!

I had a mint Colt Ace once.

It just didn't shoot very well, accuracy wise. Kinda wish I had it back.... I tend to sell or trade off inaccurate guns. Might should have kept that one though. wink

Oddly enough, the worst shooting 1911 I've ever owned was a Gold Cup National Match ('70 Series), it was a problem child from the git-go, it didn't shoot very well, lost parts regularly (front sights, back sights, roll pins, the collet bushing broke, and on and on). I have had two LWT Commanders that outshot that thing. Never had an Ace, but I had a Delta Elite, a .38 Super (it shot GREAT, despite the Colt barrel, and REALLY shot great with a new Barsto), but none of them were as bad as my GCNM. I didn't like all the sharp edges on it, either, during an IPSC match it could cut you wide open. I sold it for something or other and never looked back. I think I've owned 16 different 1911s over the years (I might have forgotten one or two), but that GC was the worst of the bunch.

Bumping this thread up.

Just produced a batch of hot 200 grain SWCs and used a couple different 5" 1911s in velocity testing, then ran some through one of my carry guns, a 1973 LW Commander.

Jeremy made those out of desert ironwood. He wanted to checker them. I wanted them smooth with some nice grain.

I was able to meet him here in Lubbock to tell him what I wanted with the understanding he had some artistic freedom. I was also able to meet him for lunch at Rudy's to pick it up when he finished it. Very nice guy...and he shoots a lot!

ETA: Those are Spegels on the Burton pistol. I bought it with G10 grips on it, but the build sheet said it had Spegel Kingwood. I called Craig Spegel and talked to him. Nicest man on the planet. Told him my predicament. He said he couldn't get Kingwood any more, but to hold on. He went back and found some Kingwood blanks and I ordered them. Told him I just wanted to get in line and didn't care how long it took. I had them in 30 days. Cost was $65. Amazing.

According to the slide the rampant colt is in the middle of the slide markings. That change dates it as above #285000. 1918. Nice history on it though.

ETA: Those are Spegels on the Burton pistol. I bought it with G10 grips on it, but the build sheet said it had Spegel Kingwood. I called Craig Spegel and talked to him. Nicest man on the planet. Told him my predicament. He said he couldn't get Kingwood any more, but to hold on. He went back and found some Kingwood blanks and I ordered them. Told him I just wanted to get in line and didn't care how long it took. I had them in 30 days. Cost was $65. Amazing.


Love the Burtons. I like his work quite a bit. Ball cuts are a fav of mine too.

I've posted this several times...My special carry I flew with in SEA...My grandfather's gun passed down to me when I was 15, had it blued and changed out all old parts...My Squadron CO gave me a special permit for overseas carry as approval was up to individual commanders of Special Operations in those days. The sights,trigger shoe and custom beaver tail I had made were the add-ons....I have Sasquatch hands

I got Glockitis and got rid of a Colt Government Model and a couple of Ruger 1911s.
Trying to recapture lost dignity with this latest production Retro basic model:

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

Perfect when carried with Pop's old .30-30 Win '94 for Sunday go to meeting,
or just sitting on the bench out front and whittling while the Wife does the shopping
at the local grocery.
Just like I saw the good ol'boys doing in Harlan, KY.

As medical student at UK, my first ER experience was seeing one of those good ol'boys wheeled in on a stretcher,
having assumed room temperature by the time the ambulance got him out of his "holler" and into Lexington.
He had a .45-caliber hole in his forehead.
X-ray showed a .45 ACP hardball had come to rest at the back side of his skull.
His brother had shot him.
Those Eastern Kentuckians have hard heads.

I've always wanted one of those old war horses. Scared I'd get ripped off tho and don't know reasonable prices or what to look for on them to ensure it's not a bunch of parts faked to be old.

That’s the problem with military 1911’s, too damn many fakes. There are 50 times more fake Singers than real ones made.
Most, we’re rearmored in the military especially if carried in 2 wars. In fact the transition model 1924 was a mix of 1911 slides and A1 frames. Then others would pull original 1911 parts like the barrel and install A1 barrels and grips or whatever to pass off as a genny.

If you really want one suggest you go here. http://coolgunsite.com/pistols/1911infopage.htm

Never ever buy one without being able to break it down and inspect the markings.

Baers are worth it (to me), even if it means selling a few middle of the road guns to get just one gun that is exactly what you want.

I did the same thing with .308 precision rifles years back. I always wanted a Sako TRG, but they were a lot of money. I ended up selling a few rifles as well as scopes, and getting a TRG 22 in .308. Have not regretted it at all.

My Les Baer has been nothing short of phenomenal in the years that I've owned it. A good amount of money and a bit of a wait to get it because it was special ordered with the frame hard chromed and Les Baer's Rolo low profile adjustable night sights. Worth it!

Not the fanciest, not the most expensive, not the most collectible, but definitely without a doubt the coolest 1911 on display.

YMMV but that 1911 is damn cool. 😎

As long as it has not been modified from a functionality/reliability standpoint after it left the Baer shop, I would not hesitate to pick one up, provided the price was reasonable.

Only one I have. Started off life as a SA Ronin, sent it off to Dave Salyer to have a bullseye pistol made out of it. Kart NM barrel, kart bushing, 3.5lb trigger, slide tightened to frame, rail added for ultra dot optic. Mr. Salyer said it will shoot 1.3 inches at 50yds off ransom rest. I asked Dave to put his last name on the slide. I guess some don’t like it when he does it.
I use 4.2gr wst with 200gr swc shoots very well off sand bag. Now me one handed a different story 😭

Springfield Armory that was totally redone by a smith named Terry Jordon 30 years ago. I undercut the trigger guard and parkerized it a couple years ago. It’s one of those that just keeps on keeping on.

You saw it a few weeks ago when I posted a thread about getting the slide milled but what the heck, it's the nicest 1911 I've ever owned and probably the most accurate pistol in my safe.

That's very nice! I have a SS Executive Carry, no RDS cut though.

It was cold and blowing here yesterday.

The Baer seemed appropriate.

A nice looking pistol is pleasant t own but I never found a place on the scorecard for prettiness. If it won't shoot a 10 shot group in less than 3" at 50 yards, I have no use of it. Shot this in rapid fire competition rapid fire stage, 25 yards.

Considering that it is a Baer that came with a guarantee and a target showing that it shoots 1.5" groups at 50 yards, I think I am safe. That is why I bought a 1.5" P2 model. It has the looks and performance all in one.

It is a 50th Anniversary edition Summer Special from Milt Sparks, so it is a little different from the normal ones.

Carrying the Les Baer today with a couple spare mags full of 250 grain +Ps.

Holster is my favorite Milt Sparks Summer Special.

FFL just teased me with this...

Colt slide and frame. Frame serials to 1944. Doubt it saw WWII action but maybe?

Interesting the upper bevel (lack of a better term) on the dustcover. Wonder what someone was trying to do there.

That looks pretty nice and a nice case to boot. Beats a cardboard box that they used to ship in.

Looks like Armand Swenson's work, if so, it's as good as it got back in it's day. A pioneer, any way you look at it.

October to May - 99% of the time I'm wearing a flannel of some sort. And a good chunk of that time it's red/black. Consider it camouflage should the shirt ride up accidentally and expose the pistol. Wearing something that blends in.

Yes, those in the know love that one. 1911s are a weakness of mine.

Yeah, the Kobra Carry has snake skin on the frontstrap, backstrap, and slide grip area.

Had this one since about 1999.
