I love Garands and 14's, have a bunch, my favorite two are from H&R, they are in brand new condition with 0 TE.

I also have a half dozen M1 carbines.
Here is some more ass raggin, I have carried one since 1964, never had a problem with them.

Or they are mechanically inept twits.
The amount of AD's with glocks are 5 times higher than with a 1911 and the 1911 had about a 70 year head start.
IF YOU ARE AFRAID of them, keep the hell away from them!!!!

Your cash and a man can do what he wishes with it. No way those 45's are worth much. There maybe a few worth a couple bucks but 99% are not
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.
Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.
After reading this Obama said I am on it.
I inherited my dad’s 1911. He was in a water cooled 30 cal machine gun crew during the war and fought in the Philippines. I get it out and shoot it once every few years. It has seen heavy and hard use. I had it inspected and we replaced all the springs to make it reliable. I kept all of the original parts just in case, so as not to lose any historical value. So as an antique, these 45s are neat to own. But they have all been beat to death so I would never trust my life to one.
My Daddy was a Vet of the Big War too. Army Air Corps MP mostly in England. He say they stuck him in some kinda remote guard shack in a forest. He got highly bored and sit a beer bottle on a post about 50 yards away and spent hours and cases of ammo of which he had plenty trying hit with his issue 1911 with no success. He said one day a limey rode up a bicyle and wanted to bs. The limey asked him if he could hit anything with his gun? My daddy say hell yes pulled out the gun and busted the bottle without aiming. The Limey was astounded and went away muttering about crazy yanks. lol. According to the story anyway.
Just like the ole car market. Many times there is no way those things are worth what they sell for. If that's what the buyer wants and is willing to pay the price who are we to judge.
Buy it and enjoy it.
I'll give $200 That's a 800% Appreciation, Not too bad

All the others have gone up at least a hundred times each.

True but those CMP Garands are completely rebuilt and in very very nice shape if you pay for a Service grade or better. I've yet to see a CMP 1911 up close but from the CMP boards, most of the military 1911s are worn out pieces of junk. $1000 is a lot of money for a worn out piece of junk just to say you have an authentic 1911.
