    The S&W is paired with a Standard Folder and the Kimber with a one-of-a-kind custom bi-tone Officer's Folder. Both blades are made from CPM-S3OV steel.

    love the way the Kimber Ultra CDP II .45 looks. Does it have a lot of kick since its smaller than the government .45?

    It is a little snappy compared to the full-sized, but mostly because of its lightweight alloy frame. Overall it's not that bad. The .45acp is a relatively low pressure round and even out of the 3" barrel recoil is very manageable, especially when compared to my subcompact 9mm or .40S&W pistols.

    Lazy, I'd love to know something about the mag on the left in that top photo...

    There are some terrific looking 1911 goin' on here guys! Really nice stuff.

    Here is a little bit "different", and perhaps weird, perspective regarding the angle for a pic of a 1911. It's my duty carry sidearm and it's how I see it everytime I look down and right. Twelve hours per shift. I'm comforted by it's presence.

    Picked up a 4" Rock Island Armory MS 1911a1 today...

    Been curious about the brand for a while and since I've been needing a mid-sized 1911 in my life I figured I'd give 'em a shot.......so to speak. It's not a true commander length, but it'll do just fine. It's park'd with a set of pretty basic wood grips, but those'll get replaced very soon. I'm thinking about installing an extended beavertail grip safety, an extended thumb safety, a commander style hammer, and a new trigger as well.

    Enough talk, here are the pics...

    Finally got out to the range with the Rock Island MS 1911a1 this morning. Took it out with the new SIG P220 and let a few fly. Only a few 'cause it was so damn cold outside I couldn't feel my fingers and reloading the mags was almost impossible. Still, it shot well. Feeding and extraction were flawless. The trigger is a little spongy compared to my other 1911s, but I must say that I am VERY impressed with this pistol. For an entry level 1911 with a 4" barrel it shot like a champ. Here's one of my best groups at 25yds...

    Just goes to show that you don't have to drop a bundle on a 1911 to get a solid shoot'n pistol. We'll see how she holds up over time, but I am extremely pleased so far...
