Sweet Jesus Bac!!!

That Kobra Carry was just incredible. They ALL are. Heck you must have around $25k just in 1911's alone!

Thanks

I've got close to $100K in 1911s, actually. I posted pics of about half of them.

I always lurk in these threads for bac to show up. Never a letdown.

I have to say, when it comes to 1911s, I'm all about the rollmark. A classy one is breathtaking, a bad one can ruin the gun.

I particularly love Wilsons and Ed Browns. Not only are they great 1911s, but the rollmarks are so well done that the entire package just looks so..,competent.

Thanks. I've been collecting for a number of years.

Its not just 1911s though. I actually own many more non-1911 automatics than I do 1911s.

The 1911 is my favorite platform though. Here is a pic of them all together.

bac1023 - i'm free for adoption?!
wow! thanks! wow! thanks!

seriously though, it's amazing how little the platform has changed over the years (when so many others have gone through so many iterations). a true testament to how true/functional/perfect the 1911 really is. it's a treat to see such a nice collection. thanks for sharing/showing off (i mean that in the best way, believe me)!

bac1023, That Infinity 1911 is ultra cool looking! I bet that one cost a pretty penny for sure. Awesome 1911 collection you have there. Keep up the good work.

Thanks. Its a great shooter.

I think it was $3700, but that was nearly 5 years ago. Today, I'm sure it would be over $4K.

Kimber Ultra Carry II with custom black ivory grips and Meprolight sights. This one has seen thousands of rounds and performs flawlessly with everything I feed it.
