    This is one of my favorite 1911s.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=157554207

    You don't see them for sale often.

    This one is just like mine, with no front cocking serrations. It doesn't have the BlacK T finish option that mine has, but it does have a very nice set of aftermarket grips.

    If I didn't already have one, I'd buy it. Its one of my top three best shooting 1911s.

    Man, I wish I hadn't gotten laid off. I miss being able to jump on cool stuff like this. Hopefully somebody here gets it.

    I hope so too.

    I've been praising this model up and down for years on here and post every time one is up for sale, which isn't often.

    This example is particularly nice.

    I wish they still made their pistols. When I was looking for a CMP 50 yard gun, I wanted one of their Perry guns so bad. They stopped making them, and I couldn't find one anywhere.

    Yep, none of their 1911s come up that often online.

    You probably have a better chance of being struck by lightening than to find one in a local shop.

    There's one in a local shop in the Phoenix area. I don't know the model, but if you're interested, PM me for the shop info.

    I saw that one a few days ago Bac. One thing I didn't like is the slide looks kinda' plum. Don't mind that so much on a P7, but not on a 1911, superb though it otherwise is.

    Well, the RRA bluing is rather thin, as I've mentioned in the past.

    They really pushed the hard chrome or Black T options. When I bought mine, I went with the latter. :supergrin:

    I like the description . . . Never fired.

    Followed by a target photo with bullet holes.


    hmmmm.

    :headscratch:

    Uh...

    Unfired means never fired outside the factory.

    That's a standard, my friend.
