This has been getting spooled up for a while. Bottom line is, I can go buy NEW guns for less money in many cases that are more reliable and better shooters. Call me when the M109s come available. I want a Ruger SS84L. Every 1911 I encountered from 87 through 91 was a worn out piece of shit. You might hit a brown mule in the ass at 10 paces, but I wouldn’t promise much more. I realize 1911 fans are coming unglued over this, but the legend of the GI 1911 is far more awesome than the reality.

I personally like the look of a 1911 and yhey are very acurate but i feel they are built to tight to be reliable when dirty. As a range gun i would like to own one but it would never be a carry piece on my hip.

That and im spoiled on how mu glocks and smith and wessons can be stripped for cleaning in 5 seconds flat


You should do some research into Les Baer 1911's if you think a tightly built 1911 isn't reliable when it's dirty. Or Ed Brown 1911's. I do agree with the statements regarding worn out GI issue handguns though

Re:US Army M1911 Stockpile! 1 Week, 2 Days ago  
I might be interested in one myself. I had a Browning Hi Power .40 stolen from my truck last year. Went a bit overboard by buying 3 replacements (not Brownings) in 1 month. A .45 Hi Pointe for the tractor, a Smith and Wesson M&P Shield .9 for carry and a very nice FN P 9mm. I live near the FN factory and they have a small shop where they sell scratch and dent models. FN owns Browning and I have a friend who works for the FN factory. She does all the rifling for the barrels of one model of the military carry rifles. Anyway, she hooked me up with the employee/family price for that Browning in the first place. That's the only reason I would buy such an expensive (at least to me) handgun. Regardless, that FN shoots WAY better than the Browning ever did. Good ending though, the stolen Browning was recovered almost a year to when it was taken. It's in much worse shape, but at least it's back.

This thread made me go to the range

Took 5 pistols and two rifles with a lot of cartridges to burn. Had a blast and then spent hours cleaning.

I know a buddy that went through the CMP process to get an old Garand, but you're looking at something that isn't offered in a "modern" version.

All the guys that had these early era .45s in the service said they could throw it more accurately than shoot it.

JD has a point, might make more sense just to by a lower end new one.

I thought of this website when I read your post about the garand..I have bought some ammo for my fn49 from these guys and saw their offering..very pricey but pretty cool
