Hey Joe!

(Where you goin' with that gun in yore hand?)

I put that gun in the "too-pretty-to-carry" column.
No skateboard tape,for sure.

Thanks for the pics!

Just lovely.

PS:My Dad was born in Kehoe,Ky.(1921)
Still have family up there.

Thanks guys! She shoots like a dream and is slick as snot. I've put put around 250 rounds of 230gr FN and HP through her without the first problem, this gun's a real hoot to shoot.

Those Novaks look out of place IMHO, but the bluing itself is gorgeous.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

A couple pictures of today's purchase. 80 Series 1991. Not my first 1911, but my first Colt of any kind, I'm very proud.
