    Anyone else have a true classic pistol, rather than a modern clone?

    This was my father's (and is now my) Colt 1911 (currently sports a 1911A1 grip safety as the orignial lets the hammer draw blood with each shot).

    I have my grandfathers Randall 1911 and an original Colt peacemaker.I also aquired a Colt 1911 made in 1918(low serial number).These are my safe guns and do not get fired, but I take them out to clean and to show them off.

    If by classic you mean old, I guess I have lots of classics! M1896 Mauser, Couple of old DA Colts, (Army Special and Official Police),I frame S&W, H&R Topbreaks, etc. The most modern design I have is a Kel-Tec P-11. Don't think I have anything else designed later than about 1950 or so.

    I have a Smith & Wesson .22 that my father and his siblings bought their father in 1946. Does that count?

    I have a 1916 Colt that served my family in three different wars, One, Two and me in Viet Nam. Or as I think of it the South East Asia War Games. Apparently I was on the second place team.

    That's possibly the coolest thing I've read in a while. That's got to have some sentimental value.

    Last time I checked the American team had the high score. It's the second stringers that couldn't hold it together. I seem to recall putting the Viet Cong out of commission at half time. :smoker:

    I approve of this thread, even though it is highly pornographic. That 1911 is showin' alot of skin.

    One day I will get a pic of it. It is mostly in the SD box at the bank. That's how valuable it is to me. When I die it goes to the NRA museum with documentation.
