    When you see how many machining operations and hand fittings are involved in a forged 1911 its no mystery why they cost what they do.

    Whoever was asking why a 1911 costs so much more than a Glock in another thread should see this vid.

    Very nice, thanks for posting, never imagine how it was done and machines from the 30's wow
     
  13. I was thinking the same thing.
    Makes you appreciate the old war horse.
    And it really makes you realize that the 1911's are a good priced gun for all that goes into making them.
    I'd love to work there.
