Or are there some that you won't shoot, for some reason? Just wondering.
i believe that there are some that he hasn't/won't shoot. i think the most recent is the Colt.
Actually, there are only three I won't shoot, but several that I haven't shot yet.
The three I won't shoot are the following. All three were sold to me "unfired" and I plan to keep them that way.
'67 Colt National Match
I won't fire the Colt because its beautiful the way it is and also a reminder of how nicely this company used to build a 1911.
I won't fire the Valtro because its very nice, but also extremely hard to find, especially unfired. Value is very high and will continue to climb.
I won't fire the AMT simply because I have no desire. I bought it for my collection since they were the first stainless guns, though problematic.
Hope this answers your question.
I'll add that the most tempting to shoot is the Valtro and I may eventually do so.
I don't own anything else quite like it. I'm not saying its the best, but certainly more exotic than any of my others.
^ very nice
- Hey if you happen to have an extra kimber pro carry laying around that you don't wish to fire, you can give it to me and ill do it for you
I'd shoot the sheeyat outta that Valtro but that's just me.
Yeah, I may.
I've heard they're excellent shooters. It is a quality gun.
Soryy man, the only Pro sized Kimber I own is my carry gun.
Brian......you are doing that Hardballer and your sanity a big favor by not shooting it.
Exactly my thoughts Dave.
The early stainless they used was prone to bad galling. I didn't pay much for it and its unfired in the box with papers and everything. Its kind of cool in that sense.
The trigger is terrible, feels like 10 lbs.
I meant to add that the Hardballer was designed to look just like the Colt Gold Cup National Match. I think its the only Gold Cup clone that was ever produced, but not certain.
Of course, quality wasn't even in the same league as Colt.
I had one many years ago.....That damn thing got me so frustrated I almost turned it on myself....but of course, it probably would have jammed anyway....
well thats a good thing, if you trust it for a carry then seems like im making a good choice.
Duplicate Post.....see....you even talk about the Hardballer and things start going to *****!
Yeah, they don't have a real good reputation. :embarassed:
That's pretty rough man.
That Valtro is a really sweet looking gun. Great melt job too. Very nice.
Like Brian, I have a couple I will not shoot and many I have not. I have two Colts that I will not shoot because of their pristine condition.
One is a 1980 Series 70....
and the other is a 1997 Combat Target. There is not even a mark on the feedramp.
My Gold Cup Trophy is another I may never shoot because it is still like new.
There are somethings you like to preserve in a collection because of value sake. As a collector, you have to consider these things when you make certain purchases.
