Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Cool Why The Model 1911 Will Never Die

I sure like the two 1911A1's that I own. Until I read this article, I knew that Wilson Combat made 1911's but, did NOT know, that the grip safety was eliminated, in their version.

Over 100 years later, the demand for John M. Browning's Model 1911 is still going strong
Quote:
So revered was the 1911 that it remained the issue sidearm of America’s armed forces for 74 years. In fact, even today, elite American combat operatives rely on 1911s. Designed by firearms genius John Browning, the Colt 1911 was chambered for the .45 ACP—a cartridge that’s now as esteemed as the pistol it was created for. To meet military demand during the first World War, 1911s would be built by many different manufacturers. Today, now that Colt’s patent on the design has expired, 1911s are manufactured by Colt, Kimber, Springfield Armory, Smith & Wesson, Sig Sauer, Rock Island Armory, Dan Wesson, Ruger, and many, many others, not to mention high-end custom offerings from shops like Wilson Combat.

I have a Remington 1911 R1S stainless steel clone I won at a gun bash on a 5 dollar ticket.... Only issue was I had the feed ramp polished because the first round hung up.

It works great now and I only use Wilson Combat mags with it.
