What is the best looking 1911, in your opinion?
My vote goes to springer's champion.
For a production gun my vote goes to the Les Baer Thunder Ranch, in either blue or hard chrome. They are both great looking guns. Unfortunatly, I have never owned one. The black over gray Wilson CQB is also a beauty.
I vote for the Colt Commander.
I prefer a mix of old school and new school. I like no front slide serrations and a single sided safety. However, I like Novak sights, magwells, beavertails, and serrations on the top of the slide.
I don't like GI hammers, grip safeties, or thumb safeties. Then again, I don't like bobtails or rails either. I will say that I like the full length rail of the TRP Operator, but the little half rails look awful. I've got a light on my Glock and HK, don't need one messing up the lines of my 1911's. Of course, options are a good thing, and lots of people like 'em.
I gotta go with a 5 inch Ed Brown, any finish is fine, and none of that fishscale stuff either.
to me, this is my sexiest 1911 in the stable:
she dressed up real nice.
be safe, shoot well.
"Say what again I dare Ya!!!" (Actually this is Travolta's gun) Check out more movie guns here.
I tried to find a good picture of the LAR Grizzlies that The Shadow used but had no luck...
Caspian Race Ready commander with Damascus slide.
I agree. The only one that may out-do this one is the longslide Damascus slide they have in their catalog. If I ever have enough money to get one, I would get a Damascus slide from Caspian before I ever get a super house 1911 from Ed Brown, Nowlin, Baer, or Nighthawk. Longslide Damascus Caspian in 10mm. Too sweet to pass up.;f That is my dream gun.
I vote for...well...mine...LOL
Officer, commander, and government length are all $550 slide only. Longslide is $650 slide only. Made to order, takes about 6 months.
Money well spent. I could definately do that. I'd put it on a Ti frame. I wish I had the money! Oh, well. I will just have to wait until I get out of school and save up. I would rather have that than a newer motorcycle. I can ride the one I have (sig line) til it dies!
I am already running out of stuff to sell to get a "10mm Fund" started.
Maybe not the sexiest, in a cool sense, but if I ever stumbled upon an old WW2 bringback 1911 at some old lady's garage sale. Say, marked "$25 obo"...
As I paid, my heart would be in my throat just the same as if I was getting ready to test out a line of new sex lubes with the entire Swedish Bikini team. ;P ;P ;P
Got some REALLY good looking 1911s posted in this thread.... It's kinda like being in the Playboy mansion having to make a decision.
Looks to me SilverState like that blaster needs to be shoved in a holster a couple hundred times. Poor thing
+1 on the Springer Loaded Champ. I have the SS version and I think its the most beautiful 1911 ever produced.
I use a VM2 for it, but the finish doesn't seem to wear much. Granted, I don't carry it daily, but it gets a fair amount of holster time. It is my primary CCW when I am not at work.
And as Obi-Wan would say, "not clumsy or as radom as a blaster, an elegant weapon for a more civilized time."
Yeah it sure does look nice.
I'm having bobtail conniptions. The bobtail does look like a great idea for a carry gun, but dang I just don't want to buy one and find out that it doesn't work for me or that it just points too much differently than a standard frame with a flat MSH. Been trying to hook up with someone local that has one to swap guns with at the range, but no luck.
Any comparisons from you guys would be most appreciated.
I am not a 1911 guy, YET
But i am looking at one of these.
Wow guys... those are some AWESOME looking 1911s!!
I humbly submit some pictures of my 1911s, although bias, consider to be very sexy...
Very nice pictures guys!!
I have this love hate relationship with 1911s... I can't shoot them well, I don't like the safeties and grip angle, but I just can't seem to stop buying them, or drooling over them... It's a sickness.
