    An interesting Army Colt 1911...

    I traded a Browning HP for this Colt for the frame. I had a Ciener .22 Conversion Unit I wanted mount on it. Well, the doggone thing shot so good as a .45, that I wound up with 2 shooters. Someone rebuilt this 1918 Colt with a Wilson SS barrel and fit it well, and it has been refinished it with a black baked finish. They also installed Millett sights.

    I adjusted the trigger pull to a crisp 4.5#. I also replaced the grip safety with one from an M1911A1. It had a FLGR which I threw away and installed a conventional spring, guide and cap....

    Ain't she SWEET????----
