Re: Considering first 1911 purchase advice?

The price is reasonable IF the gun is all GI This gun looks to have buffed refinished

REBUILT M 1911s are common, and it is possible to get a better gun for about the outlay

Re: M1916 Family

This was one of my first purchases from ' YE OLDE HUNTER' Even got some loose 7mm ammo with it in a paper bag. Most of the rounds
ignited and never had any real complaints with the rifle Always enjoyed the smooth action
