Metal music plays as we gaze across a bleak war torn land scape. We’ve done it AOC has been over thrown as the Emperor of the American Collective. A charismatic leader, who lead the charge and won the Day now reigns but quickly turns tyrannical. His policies are great- mandating all law abiding citizens must be trained and armed with at least a pistol when in public. But power corrupts even @LonewolfMcQuade who mandates that pistol must be a 1911! All other designs are lesser and hence outlawed -Hail Browning! And ignore the heretic lies of the cult of the Hi Power.
So now you must use and carry a 1911, to comply with the law. Well at least for now, until this anti Combat Tupperware tyrant can be brought to heel.
Given this which 1911 do you choose. Note: money is no object because part of the @LonewolfMcQuade defense budget is supplying every citizen with training, a rifle and a pistol.
With the above parameters and clearly @Robert being the new head of the DOJ. I’m going to go against two things I usually dislike 1911s and Springfield (hopefully @LonewolfMcQuade fixed their board & politics since the AOC War).
I usually am not enamored by Springfield or 1911s but I must say the Springfield TRP 10mm RMR checks so many boxes. I handled one and it ALMOST swayed me to the dark side.
Just NP3 Plus everything but the frame, slap some mammoth grips on it, add a bonus match threaded barrel (7-7.5”) and carry bob the bottom of the frame (or what ever the cut on the below picture is called)
The reason that Lord Lonewolf has ordered all citizens to own a 1911 after the great war is because all the plastic weapons melted and were rendered useless in the flames on the battlefield. Only the superior, proven steel 1911’s survived , allowing the accurate, immortal, deadly weapon of the gods to be reissued to the patriots.
Here are some discussions we have hsd on 1911s, if youre interested.
Im not a snob and not very much of a 1911 guy due to being a cheap ass. Ive always liked Colt 1911s though, they offer the most forged components for the price. Outside of that @switchpod and @KeithP make a good case for Sigs 1911s with the external extractor. Which im kind of warming up to the design after looking at it more. If and when I decide to stop being a cheap ass I might go for Sig, Colt or Dan Wesson 1911 but one of these is like 2-3 Glocks.
Several series 80 Colt 1911s
SA Range Officer/loaded (dont remember exactly)
Les Baer monolithic heavyweight
Rock Island Armory GI clone
And a few more…
And as far as @LonewolfMcQuade goes , he has a bald head and ive always suspected him of being an undercover Nazi Stormfront spy so your accusations might be correct.
