    I have been hankering for a gun made in the year I was born, which was 1968. I came across this 1911 and was wondering what everyone thought.

    Looks to be a nice example, but it has been reworked which can be a issue if someone hacked on it without skill. The pics seem to reflect it was fairly well done :dunno:

    What does everyone think of it?

    Also in the running:

    I noticed that as well. I am having a "bad" feeling about that gun for some reason :dunno:

    I think I will pass on it. I might be wrong but it does not seem like it would turn out well for some reason.
