Then...



And now...



Ain't family albums fun?

Y'all can say what you want about pearl grips and pimps, these are great pistols for the money!



One has real MOP and the other has simulated. Both are fine shooters.

Mexican Kerry - I think a lot of the disdain laid on this sort of pistol may be because in the past so many of these were "bumper-shop" chromed without a lot of care in the finish. This didn't mean much to the actual owner of the gun at the time since he was usually looking to flip them quickly (and extra-legally) and knew that a certain type of customer would be attracted to the flash more than the quality of the gun.
Chroming (other than professionally applied hard-chrome) and nickle-plating often have durability problems in the long run. Even the old factory-applied nickle-plating on old H&R, Colt, S&W and other brands often peeled and chipped off over the years. Not a good look...
I really like the grips and will guess that the one's on the left with the Pony medallion are the real-deal. Mother-of-pearl and ivory are traditional materials and while way to slickery in the modern "tactical" view of things, they dress up a pistol in a way little else can. That both MOP and ivory are fragile compared to other materials makes them more suitable to collectible guns I believe but they really can make a "barbeque-gun" pop like nothing else!
Thanks for sharing these!

Actually the set with medallions is simulated. The real ones are like glass, they dress it up but as you say not very practical.

Here's mine, RIA 1911 FS Tactical w/Wilson combat shok buff system, Wilson Combat Match Grade Stainless Barrel, and all other Wilson Combat internals. S&A stainless magwell, and a Valkyrie Dynamics Bushing Compensator. Mostly because It looks amazing! Two parts on their way-Wilson Drop in Stainless Beavertail Saftey, and Wilson Stainless Slide Release.

Hi Guys and Gals, I'm a brand new hand gunner and A Rock Island 1911 A2 ms was my first pistol. I've been shooting long guns for over 20 years.
Sorry about the sideways pic I'm not sure how to correct it
Is there a MOD around that can pm me. I have a technical that they could help out ( sorry not for general members, as much as you would like to help out others.)

Hello Art. Snowing ! ? Well; at least you can sit and admire your Rock, even if you can't get out and practice.

I thought this one might be worth posting because of the nicer looking grips. You can actually see some wood grain. I haven't seen a bunch of RIA 1911's but the few I have seen have just plain wood.
This is my first 1911 and my first pistol since the late 80's.

Now that is a fine pair.

Nickel handguns from the factory is done perfectly. The bad reputation comes from GIs who had a bubba chrome them with a bumper.
