Sure most of us are here for the rifles but who else collects 45s heres mine,the only phony is the one with wood grips it's aold star military in 9mm http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q...s/P6260566.jpg

jerryjeff 06-26-2011 08:06 PM

Nowhere to go but up from here; a couple of S. American copies of the colt(second generation copies at that). I like the top one because the markings indicate it is the Argentinian version of the border patrol.

Note, no grip safety. Forgot to mention-they're accurate.
Oh, and I have Star as well. It's my night stand pistol.

Nice collection, Deputy!

I've got a Colt M1911, 1918 frame with a WWII Springfield A1 rebuild.

Picked up this Colt 1943, condition is just ok, but could not resist owning a war time 1911. On the other hand the Boyt 42 holster is in great shape.

Yoour holster looks to good to be true. So does Tinpigs 1917. I coould be wrong.

river nazi 06-26-2011 10:23 PM

I know what you mean. I was given the holster by a friend about fifteen years ago. I don't know what to look for to see if it's a repo but it looks almost new only a few small marks on it.

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.

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.
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...nderTag004.jpg
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...erTag004-1.jpg
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...nderTag003.jpg
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
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...eyGrips003.jpg
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...eyGrips006.jpg

And with the same grips that came on it day one in 45acp form it is a great shooter

http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...Ace/ace003.jpg
http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/e...Ace/ace004.jpg
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

340six 06-27-2011 11:38 AM

How about a mini 45? A Colt Mustang?

This is the man who gave C18222 to me. My dad and Ben Di Clemente lower left photo. Ben was my dad's platoon and foxhole buddy throughout their service in the 4th Division. My dad often carried the pistol which he credits for saving his life on several occasions.

Carved ivory CBI grips believed to be WWII era... 1917 Colt with a later slide. Its an Ogden rebuild. The other is an ATI Commander model. They both shoot great. Originally bought the ATI for carry purposes... but may go with a compact 1911 after all.

Sigman2, I'll give you a close run for the money. Early 1918 produced Gov. Model carried in France by my Great-uncle Arthur, along with his original holster.
Carried by Dad during Korea when called back up and guarded Philadelphia Navy Yard and going to college. (He was in Navy basic training at end of WW2.) He then went Army, and the gun was re-blued by a friendly armorer at Aberdeen Proving Grounds after he graduated college. I put a new rear sight on it in 1980's (still have original) and barrel bushing was replaced with Colt Series ?? collet type. The mag is original also. No scalps for this baby though. http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/...o/DSCN0271.jpghttp://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/...o/DSCN0272.jpghttp://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/...o/DSCN0273.jpg

My Colt M1911 which when purchased, had already been heavily buffed and cleaned befor reblue at some time, so some markings are either faint or gone. :-(

http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l5...Colt_1911L.jpg

Here is my letter from Colt on this pistol. It shows that it was one of 1600 sold to the United States Government and delivered to the Ordnance Officer at the Military Training Camp in Plattsburg, NY on May 02, 1917, just short of a month when the U.S. entered WWI which was Apr 06, 1917.

Below are some pictures of my .45s:

I have a correct Remington-Rand M1911A1, an original, but very worn Colt M1911 from 1918, a RIA that is my "shooter" and a Colt Series 70 I just bought a few months ago. In addition, a Colt M1917 revolver.

I admit that if M1911s weren't so danged expensive, I'd have a LOT more of them! I'd still like to get a Springfield Armory M1911(the M1903 people, not the current manufacturer), but that will have to wait until I win the lottery!! I was VERY forunate on the two military .45s and invested less than $1250 in them TOGETHER!
