    Well, Rock River Arms caught the dumb by re-entering the world of 1911's with just such a turd.

    Thats what I was thinking. The "newer" designs are along the lines of of a Model A, with a ricer wing, nice wheels and a K&N sticker.:whistling:

    To their credit it's amazing how "normal" it looks. I wonder how it compares to the allow frame in weight.

    Except the 1911 still thrives, the Model T, uh, not so much. The Jeep is a good comparison; rugged, dependable & hasn't changed all that much over the years. Jut pony up & get one Steve, shoot it enough, you'll never go back to a GLock.:dunno:

    I don't want to be known as one of "those guys" on the forum. You know the 1911 guys who frequent Glock forums for sport.

    Been around for 70 years. Dependable (I own two). Big. Not the fastest or fanciest vehicle but it will get you there comfortably. Safe.

    Something like this
    Overweight, over accessorized, overrated.

    :rofl:Me too. I kept the G19 because it isn't worth selling.

    I would rather carry or shoot any of my 1911s any day of the week.

    I do have one plastic 45 that I like, my M&P. It's still not a 1911:whistling:

    I would actually buy one of those! At least the trigger & grip are correct for a proper defensive handgun.:tongueout:

    I like the idea of a heavy truck for comparison.

    the 1911 isn't light by any means, but it will do any job that any other pistol will do within reason (wouldn't really recomment a 45 acp for plinking at 200-300 yards). Fuel may be a bit more expensive, but it'll still get you there.

    I keep thinking that one of these days I should buy a 1911 style gun. But I have a hard time paying for a gun that is a lot bigger than mine, weighs twice as much as mine, but only holds half the bullets!

    Obviously not a power choke! Lol

    I was thinking maybe a classic Shelby Cobra. Very few originals exist, lots of copies, plenty of power and performance. Fun to drive and show it off and almost everyone appreciates them.

    Is there a car out there that is slim, strong, a bit heavy and can be taken completely apart without tools, and is yet a little over-complicated (by modern standards) and requires almost every part to be hand-fitted? And yet, will still will do the job as well as anything made today?

    For the record I'm not bashing the 1911 at all - I want another one very bad. I sold my first because it was a piece of garbage but the problem was in the execution, not the design.
