Talking Twin Springfield Long Slide .45 1911's Polished to a Mirror Finish

Not long ago, I polished these twin Springfield Long Slides for a gun shop in CA. Here are a few photos and an HD video clip of the pair together.








Here's a link to the video. You may have to manually select HD if the video quality doesn't look great.

So who are they for, John Woo?

Imagine [insert favorite action movie star here] leaping sideways through the air with these in each hand blazing away in slow motion...

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.

LOL It's an incredible feeling having one of these babies in each hand. I damn near did the Woo leap myself. If I ever get a pair of Desert Eagles in, I'm afraid I'm going airborne!
