    Just got my AMT Hardballer a little while ago. All in all, it is in pretty nice condition. It does make a wonderful addition to the collection.

    Congrats James! :cool:

    It looks great. :thumbsup:

    You'll have to take a couple more pics in better lighting. :)

    Oh, USA
    My BIL has one of their .30 Carbine models, not something that impressed me, but I recently shot a Hardballer at the fish and game club and it was very smooth shooting and had an excellent trigger, which the owner said was untouched. Very enjoyable after my LW Champion.

    I agree. It was about 7pm when I took these.

    Yeah, I've always thought the Hardballer was a great looking 1911.

    Not great quality, but great looking.

    Looks great James. What's your impression of the wrap around grips?

    Hey Big Guy.

    When I got the AMT, it had Hogue wrap-around grips on it. The previous owner did not have the original AMT grips. I had a set of Pachmayrs laying around, so I decided to use them. They are okay. They would take a little getting use to. I wish I could get a hold of a set of originals though.

    As ridiculous as it sounds, the game Hitman has made me want one of these for years...
     
  11. Congrats.

    BTW, that long hole in the trigger makes a great place to attach the anchor line! :supergrin:
