Gratuitous Gun Pr0n #122...

WWII-era USGI Colt M1911A1, all original save for the Herrett's Camp Perry target stocks. (The original USGI grip panels were in a Ziploc baggie.)

Perhaps surprising to people only familiar with shot-out, rattly issue guns from the '70s and '80s, this thing was as snug as your average current production Colt or Springer. Perhaps surprising to people accustomed to modern 1911-pattern pistols, the trigger was a heavy 8+lb. affair.
