...Of course I got tons of pics of it. It has the original push out mag catch lock instead of our current screw type on it which is a nice touch, as long as you don't mind potentially chasing it when you remove it!..
Anyways, enjoy and feel free to post your comments.

And you dare to tease us with only one pic!?!?!? :shock:

Now that's more like it! Wear, yes. But it is still a beauty.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for sharing your pics! Not too often you get to see such an early 1911.

Regards,
John

Joe, I was not aware of an earlier version of the mag catch lock. How is it different? I can see in the pic it's not the same but can't figure it out.

OK, let's cut the slide back to Commander length, install a match barrel with cone-type compensator, low mount BoMar, Wilson beavertail, hardchrome,checkered frontstrap. :twisted: :twisted:

Just kidding, of course!!

Joe that pistol just about defines "Collectible".

Thank you for posting this, that early mag catch info is priceless!

Too bad it has gone into a collection some place. I'd have loved to photograph it for the 2nd Edition.

1912. Just thinking about it makes the head spin.
