Very Nice opaww !

I really like the 1911a1...
Here's my Springfield Armory M1 Garand...manufactured in November 1944. She is pictured with an original M1942 16" bayonet ( very rare...most were cut down to 10" ) and a repo M7 fragmentation grenade launcher.

The M1 Garand (officially designated as United States Rifle, Caliber .30, M1), was the first semi automatic to be generally issued to the infantry of any nation. Called "the greatest battle implement ever devised" by General George S. Patton, the Garand officially replaced the bolt action M1903 Springfield as the standard servive rifle of the United States Armed Forces in 1936 and was subsequently replaced by the selective fire M14 in 1957.

I have the same Springer 1911. Same after market grips too. I had an issue with the original left grip cracking at the top, front. I contacted SA and they sent me a new pair. The new pair did the same thing. So I chose the rubber grips with the finger grooves. I love them.
Nice Springers opaww. Don't have any Springers, yet.

The Garand is in badazz shape SHOOTER13. Is it a shooter or a safe queen?
Thanks PV !!

As I'm fond of saying...

All my firearms are Shooter's...:D
I love the M1 Grand, it is one of the finest shooting weapons ever made.
That is a nice M1 Garand. I had one many moons ago. I wish I hadn't sold it. You gotta love the "ping"!
Absolutely my most favorite rifle in my safe(s)...
M25 this thing is awsome, in 7.62 it will shoot easy out to 1,000 yds.

That M25 is nice...real nice !!
It's not what you call a carry rifle, the stock weighs in at 15 pounds. The strap is purely for looks. It's really a smooth shooter, all that weight absorbs just about all the recoil and the brake keeps it down. At 150 yds. it will shoot a 5 shot 1/2" group when all is together with gun and shooter using 7.62 match M852 ammo. When I use all that up I'm going to start rolling my own as soon as I get all the stuff.
1911-A1 Loaded. It's my favorite gun that I own...a blast to shoot, and currently is my carry/nightstand gun.

I just ordered a set of these tonight
