I have two, and I do intend to fix that..........



Rock Island Armory 1911A1
SAI GI Champion

Both have been 100% reliable, but if I had to choose between the two......the RIA because its the closest thing I got to what my grandfather used.

Mine . . .



A month old, 1,000+ rounds already, and not a single issue.

I carry my Colt Series 80 in stainless steel (I hate rust).

My favorite is still my Colt Combat Commander with all the bells and whistles I installed on it back in the early 80's. Sweetest handling/shooting 1911 style pistol I've ever had in my hand or holster.

My favorites are a S&W PC 1911 that I use for a bullseye gun and my two pin and plate guns that I built about 25 years ago. One in a Colt Delta Elite and the other is a Federal Ordnance Ranger. Although its not strictly a 1911 my S&W 945 is also one of my favorite shooters.

I have had a Colt and a Springfield and didn't like either of them... I bought a Kimber Pro Eclipse II (4") and found The One...
