The 1911 is 100 years young this year.

Happy Birth Day to the 1911!

Yup...I wonder if Mr. Browning had any idea how far his weapon would go.

May there be many more years for Mr. Browning's child.

I would love to be able to even own, let alone carry, a 1911 Colt. Sad Sad

It is a magnificent pistol and design that has more than stood the test of time with many well deserved runs on the board.

Cheers, Vince

Yeah, the way the flash reflected was cool, but I have seen real nice blues in earlier colts especially the the .380 autos (1908's)this is an early series 70 from the first part of the 70's and it has that color too. The revolvers also sport this navy color.

Bushy, does your component stereo still work? I haven't seen that kind of equipement for twenty years. Brings back memories of my old Kenwood setup.

Mate...everything that Bushy has works as it was meant to on the day it was manufactured I reckon...although I can't comment on his "body parts" these days. He does however look a damn sight fitter than many his age I have seen in the past.

Very Happy Very Happy Laughing Laughing

Cheers, Vince

Inthedark...All of what I have in operation is in working order.

I have had to reduce the size of my system due to room constraints, but...

Teac 4010SU
Pioneer RT-707
Pioneer RT-701
Pioneer CT-40
Pioneer CT-F700
Pioneer TX-940
Two Pioneer SA-750
Sony SQD-2020
United Audio Dual 1229
Four Polk Audio R-15 Speakers
Two Sony SB-300s to help tie it all together

The system is full SQ quadraphonic in my 12 X 8 Man Cave with all my firearms and reloading equipment
