I'm afraid I am lacking for a real government 45, but here is a pic of my Rock Island Armory faux 45 along with a bonafide Garand and S&W victory Model 38 special.

Just 3:
1 Remington-Rand M1911A1 from Jan 1945 and
1 Colt M1911A1 from April 1944 and
1 Colt Series 70 from 2010
I'm ooking for 1 1917 or so Colt, SA or Remington M1911, but not a "1918 Black Colt" with the crappy finishing.

My 1915 M1911 C18222. She had a few parts (grip safety, hammer, trigger, barrel and bushing) replaced with 1911-A1 parts in 1944 after the Tinian invasion. This pistol saw combat in WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. She's been around! And yes, she does have a head count. I have her complete history documented. It was purchased in 1915 by Ben's grandfather. Ben's father carried in in France during WWI, Ben and my dad carried in through the Pacific in WWII, Ben's younger brother carried it in Korea and Ben's nephew carried her in Vietnam. Ben gave her to me along with an original shoulder holster, two spare clips, pouch, 21 rds of 1944 ammo and his K-Bar in 1969.

Here's the 1911-A1 commemorating my father. I know, commemorative is misspelled.

A few years ago I gave my son and son-in law each a Springfield Armory 1911.

Does anyone remember seeing those USGI .45's in Shotgun News back in the 80's for $250? What we didn't know back then....

There is a story behind mine it was a long road to getting my gun. First off we were not rich but not poor and dad wanted me to learn the value of a $$ for later in life.
Way back at 15 dad got me with my $$ a Ruger MKI to hold me over while I saved for my Series 70
After I had the $ Iordered a brand new "70" Colt Gold Cup right after that the shop was closed as the owner had his appendix burst.
He did make it and then closed down so it was take what he had in stock for my $ and he had no 1911.
So I grabbed a S&W Model 19 in Nickel 6" and some ammo
Started saving again and shot bi weekly with both the 22 and 357 reloads
When I had almost had the $$ again. I sold the MK1 to dad since I was a little short and I ran across a 70 Ace new in box at a great price so grabbed it up.
Being a young kid working a job and going to school with a few nice guns being trusted at the range was great> plus shooting few times a week having a few 22's made that happen.
Later did get a chrome lined barrel and New Colt slide new in wrap in 45acp
So as lots of guys have a 45 with 22lr conversion I am backwards and have the 22-45 lol
here is my gun from age 17.
No bad looking 22... with some custom Monkey Grips with 3 patterns as you go across the grips.
I no longer have the Kimber mags and got 3 new real mags as my original ones as well as the slide were wet in Katrina and off the gun. As it was in 45acp form at the time and not wet
Colt was sent the whole top end and they redid it just fine as pictured. Note that the Ace has the same sights and a gold cup did. It shoots cheep 22 federal bulk packs in great groups and shoots better than I can with real target ammo.
in 45acp form

And with the same grips that came on it day one in 45acp form it is a great shooter
Be hard to find a nicer 22 and I can always put it back they way it was I have the parts but shoots so nice as posted above
Year later I got an almost mint shot very little used was maybe 6 months old as they came out in 82 with the Ruger MK2 lol it is a sickness

How about a mini 45? A Colt Mustang?
