In honor of yesterday’s anniversary of the U.S. Army officially adopting the 1911 pistol exactly 100 years ago:

Hickok45 takes a look at some different 1911s:

Makes me sort of wish I didn’t sell my Springfield Loaded 1911-A1. Note that I said “sort of”. ┬áIt’s probably good I got rid of it when I did because there was so much pitting, and the gun was only a few years old. (Pictured left is the exact model I had… Easy on the eyes, hard on the heart)
