    Ok I was at a pawn shop and made an impulse purchase. It is still in layaway. I know they have kind of a bad rap but I had to get it anyways. I picked up an AMT hardballer longslide. I have read all the bad things about them but this one seemed to be in decent shape and had clearly been used but didn't seem to have any galling. I'm hoping it will be a reliable shooter. But the geek in me really doesnt care either way because I now have the gun from the terminator :supergrin:

    Sweet! I'd pick up one of those too. Now get yourself a pair of Gargoyles Classics. Please post pics when you get a chance.

    Pics! How much did it set you back if you don't mind my asking? I almost bought one but decided to get one built from Fusion in 10mm.

    600 which I thought seemed fair until I found one on gunbroker selling for 1100 so I snatched it real quick

    I would buy one in a heart beat if I could get a good deal on it.

    Now you just need to find a 1980's laser to mount on it. LOL

    Congrats on the AMT Longslide. If I could find one at that price, I would jump on it in a heartbeat.

    ok here it is after first take down and cleaning I am going to go run a few rounds through it. I took out the worn out SA mag that came with it and threw in a wilson combat ETM mag. The only thing that sucks is the larry davidson grips I ordered just barely don't fit. Oh well I guess that gives me an excuse to by another 1911 to put those grips on it.

    I will not own any AMT product, but I would make an exception for the Longslider with the top mounted laser.
