The M2 .50 cal is also an old design. And we won't get into the fact that nearly every modern handgun owes its design to the 1911. Even the Glock.

I think the biggest problem is generational. At...

The only live critters I ever hunted were slugs, which are plentiful here in the wet PNW. As a kid I would go around the yard with my BB gun, shooting them from about ten paces. My mom soon put a...

That's a very authentic-looking "Model of the 1911A1". When you get it so that outside of five feet you can't tell if it's a real USGI or not you're doing good.

Back in the days before Penicillin and modern anesthesia a little .32 revolver was still pretty damn dangerous, and nobody with any smarts would argue with the wrong end of one. Then as in now the...

Yeah, I was lucky enough to get one of those old Colt 4x scopes in a trade. They drop through the hole in the carry handle and are secured with a locking lever. Unfortunately it didn't seem to help...

There have also been a disturbing number of instances where police have emptied their 15-shot pistols into a single adversary and/or hit bystanders as well, especially in NYC.

I was just giving you a hard time about it. Yours is more accurately an M16A4 configuration and as such the rail handguard is correct for it. BTW does it really have an HBAR barrel? My first AR was a...

You'll have to experiment. Personally I never run modern 1911 mags w/baseplates and such in older 1911s, just because it looks odd. Factory Colt, Metalform or Checkmate mags for me.
