I know that I can not be the only one with an original. Mine comes with a story. It was issued to my great grandfather towards the end of WW1. He carried it as his sidearm for the remainder of the war. It was the start of my collection. I also have the original belt, holster, mag pouch, and 3 mags.

One day I will get one of the "classic" 1911's. Great gun, and I love the story.
