Looks kind of scabby but cheap enough to put up with.

Gunsmith here had a request for a trigger job on one. It came out nice but he, a staunch 1911 man, said "Never again."

Its military surplus so it will look a little used!

Nice! I meant to get one while I still had my C&R but just never did.

I bought one from PSA when they were selling them. I actually shoot it very well, for me it's one of the pistols I shoot the best with. But honestly the safety is awkward and the mag release is old school but I like mine. If I found anymore that were in the C&R range I'd grab another one.

Over on Gunboards someone posted pictures of theirs, pictures of the barrel and the locking block. That makes you appreciate JMB's designs.

Just picked it up from my LGS. Had to have J&G sales ship it to them for the background check!

Congratulations! Yours looks nice - much nicer than the photo in the advertisement. Hope you enjoy your new/old gun.

Buy the replacement locking block while you can find them. DK Arms has/had them. There's an old style and new style. I don't think they're interchangeable.

The ones on DK say "Surplus locking blocks" Not replacement
