That's awesome. What a beautiful piece of history and matching numbers don't mean much when you have to fight for your life lol
Man, I love those old 1911s, never owned one though. More's the pity. LOL. I do have several Argentine Colt Model 27s. They are pretty much the same as the older Colt 1911A1s. Good quality guns. I also have a couple of Chinese Norinco 1911A1s, also very good quality. I have switched to Glocks now but the old 1911s still call to me. I had a Colt Series 70 once but I let a cousin talk me out of it.
Griddler Congrats,major score !Just got back home from the mom&pop shop. Wowwwww, we dropped some major coin on ammo there!!!
I bought 250 rounds of 22-Hornet, and some other needed ammo. Wife bought a huge BUNCH of SK 22 rimfire.
The owner of the shop is a awesome gentleman! I see us going back there, ALOT!
Place was to the roof in ammo, literally!!! Said if he didnt have what we wanted, he`d order it.
I asked if their was a ammo limit, he said "carry out as much as you can hold onto, then come back in for more if you like"
He ordered a few cases of Lapua Center-X rimfire for us. Told us a week at the very most for it to come into his place.
He told us that the Lapua is very plentiful. Hell yeah, get us a few cases of it! DONE!
His prices on most ammo was EXTREMELY decent! This guy hates gougers and big box chinasi` stores.
He is a retired Marine from the military, does part time police work, and county highway work.
What a GREAT day, met a great person, scored the ammo we were looking for.
Wife an i could have stood there all day talkin to this older fella. We shared tons of story`s.
We all would have talked for hours between us, but he had customers to take care of.
Life is GOOD!
