Last handgun I bought was a CZ-75B. Another excellent combat hand gun.
    Yeah, the better days of a Remington Rand 1911, would be 1942 or so, so they would have been pretty beaten up by Desert Storm.
    And the CZ-75 is right there in Pantheon of Holy Guns; it is a great design.

    I am not criticizing, just too lazy to participate in the pissing.

    I know it, and I am not being a fault finder, even if I sound like it. These threads always help people, even when it seems old and stale, to all of the old timers.
    Me personally, I have a .45 1911, and I wish that I had a Beretta M92, and a Taurus M66 to boot. I am pretty flexible, when it comes to what constitutes a good gun.

    I LOVE my 1911's

    BUT I am very intrigued by the 2011...

    SAY WHAT Slippy? A 2011??? You done smokin' something today?

    No Sir BobCatTail, I have been keeping my eye on the STI International Guns 2011 Platform Pistol. Sweet! A tad bit pricey but everyone needs a goal, right?

    Actually, there were no 1911A1’s made for the government after 1945. By any maker.
    After Korea and Vietnam all were pretty worn out

    My first handgun, . . . and first 1911 came off the black market, . . . streets of Saigon, . . . spring of '66, . . .

    When I rotated back, . . . left it with another swabbie, . . . I never used it, . . . but slept better knowing I had it.

    Also left my M3, . . . really hated to part with that one, . . . but didn't want to do Leavenworth.

    I've had many handguns that I've parted with, including a couple Pythons, an Anaconda, Super Redhawk, XD 45, . . . now I have a little ATI 1911 commander, . . . and today it is my "comfort" gun. Sleep better knowing I've got it and my full size Rock Island.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    Talking Colts, you can. Requires switching barrel, link, ejector, extractor and magazine. All Colt barrels are the same diameter just the bore is different. Extractor and ejector need to match the caliber and 9mm mags have same dimensions with pressed rail to guide the smaller ammo.

    All you guys who prefer other pistols than Colt 1911's are right! Do not get a Colt. You will be disappointed and you will help me in my dream of owning every Colt 1911 ever made.
    This is earthquake country and I'm prepping for the big one

    Ain't that what I said? I said the heyday of Remington Rand was 1942 or so. The Army .45 was a very tired, and worn out piece of junk, by the time that the Army went to Beretta. [I read somewhere, that the Army tested brand new Beretta's against those ancient .45's. Well that ain't fair!]

    Anyway, with the slew of 1911 makers that are making them now, the old Army guns are little more than history. There are more 1911's produced now, than I ever dreamed would happen. I would love to have an Auto Ordnance for some strange, incomprehensible reason; I guess that I am an inveterate old school fart.
