New from Florida...

Mine is a bit of an unusual situation as I'm currently waiting for a custom build stainless steel Mark IV Series 70 Lew Horton to come in. It's not my first 1911 as I had purchased a Star Model P from our base gun club while I was stationed in Sicily. The year was 1973. The CPO that ran the gun club offered me an opportunity to order a 6" Colt Python and a Mark IV Series 70 so I jumped on both. The 1911 came in about a year and a half later whereas the Python took nearly 2 years. In 1996 I took the 1911 to a gun shop to have trigger work done on it and after a couple of months I just didn't think much about it...long story short, the gunsmith passed away and I never pursued the issue. Roll forward to now...got the fever to put one back in my hands and glad there's such a forum like this.

Sincerely,
Steve

Welcome to our 1911 forum from Italy.

Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
If you are going to collect, don't be 'drawn' to an example that is neither original nor correct; instant gratification is always more expensive than a good education.
