Hello all, glad to be here. I'm a mechanical engineer by trade, but 1911s are my passion. I probably won't be posting any drool-worthy pictures anytime soon, unless you're a fan of beat-up utilitarian chic. I'm always interested in gunsmithing tips and tricks to get the most out of these pistols, as I carry this one for self-defense.

Looking forward to learning from all of you!

Lived in Somerset, Pa. and been to State college many times. Somerset the best place I ever lived. I also carry a Kimber Raptor. Great gun; no problems. I have on order a Nighthawk Thunder Ranch and looking forward to getting it. I have four other 1911's which includes two Springfields and they also are great guns. Good luck to you!

The 1911 was designed to be a combat weapon in rough conditions. Accurate and reliable enough for use in war. It was designed to be functional not beautiful.
