Thanks in advance,

Wow, those grips are something else, look like modern art type grips, Joan Miro or something. I'm not sure on this thread you'll get an answer to your other questions. I'm like you, I just got my 1911 from my father...though mine was inherited....

I left another handgun forum recently (it doesn't matter which one; they weren't very helpful), and signed up here because I've found lots of good info browsing through the 1911forum as a guest. I'm pretty new to handguns (but shot rifles since I was a cub scout), but to me they represent an iconic piece of Americana. I'm very near the "end" of my research towards my first 1911 and I hope this forum can help me make a well-informed decision purchasing and maintaining a good one

I was looking for information between a Colt Defender .46 APC and a Kimber Eclipse Ultra II: I kept getting referred to this website but couldn't get in. Got the app, glad I did: love the forum - great information every day from knowledgable people. Honestly, I've shot most of my life and reloaded most of my adult life and thought I knew a fair amount: I learn something, I didn't know (like VIS) every day! Thanks everyone!

Thanks all!

Take care,

1911 Staff
Seemed like every time I had a question about something or was looking for clarification the google search results would always lead me to this forum and the answers. Figured I would cut out the middle man and join

I found this site, by researching a bunch of 1911s. It was very helpful in me making my decision on what I was going to buy. It helped me decide to get a lower priced 1911 than a higher price one. I was looking to learn how to modify a pistol, an the information has been great, an pushed me to look for an learn more on my 1911 before I go changing parts around.

Between Google searches related to all things 1911, and a gun nut I work with pointing me here, I've been lurking for a couple weeks and finally decided to join the community. As there are few I can go to for educated opinions in my area, this will no doubt prove to be a main source of info for me.

I learned of this website from the "Texasguntalk.com" website. I have been associated with the 1911 since I was a Company Armorer while in the Army back in 1968. Plain to "Custom", I have played with them all.

I don't Google

I "Binged" 1911 and found this site. Looks interesting, informative, and it helped me find my 1911 Sig Sauer Ultra Nitron...now if only joining the local gun club was just as easy...

I stumbled across it when researching for a 1911. Joined when I purchased the Sig Sauer Traditional Reverse.
