Seen the forum many times in the past while researching 1911s for a purchase. I have joined the forum today, so I can get some specific feedback on the Coonan 1911s and I look forward to learning more about 1911s in general.

Thanks for a great resource!

I was thrown your name in a gunshop in Wendell, NC.. The guys in there said that it was a great place to find info on just about everything on 1911 pistols and their look alikes.. (The compact .45's so to speak )haha

From the browsing I have done so far I can't say they were wrong!

Found the 1911 Forum by doing google searches for "Les Baer", "Wilson Combat", "Ed Brown" and a lot of one vs. another. Most of the time this forum showed up in my search results.

Like many others, I was doing some research on various 1911's trying to decide on a particular one to buy. Been lurking and absorbing some great info for awhile, thought I'd speak up and say hey.

Hey!

Looking for a particular holster for a Para and my search turned up one posted for sale here. I looked around and was impressed. (Bought the holster, by the way.)

From Eastern PA

Hi,
This is my 1st time post.....I've been researching a Model 1911 .45 and holster I got from my Dad. Serial number placed it from 1917. Was issued to a WWII serviceman who was injured in a crash in Gr. Britain...who gave it to my Dad's step dad (they were in a band together). Holster has serviceman's serial no. and name - I checked military records and they match. .45 look to be original - except for replaced clear plastic grips. Dad remembers firing it when he was a teenager approx 50-60 yrs ago.

Where to from here? Is there a specific post I should try?

I've always wanted a .45 and now that I have one I wonder if I can shoot it....do I need to get it professionally cleaned/restored? Are there any hidden issues with its transfer to me from my Dad (step actually)?
Thanks in advance,
Tom
