    Just an old 1911. Serial number says it was manufactured in 1918. I know it to have been used in Korea. Likely used before that in other wars.

    " Political tags such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    It's a TRP.

    All I had done is swap the rear sight for an old 10-8 rear sight I had on hand. And I always replace 1911 grip screws with 10-8 GI grip screws.

    And I had replaced the recoil spring with a left-over from a SiG 1911 that I had a couple of years ago and a spare Wilson Combat plug. And since that was a, "for now," solution, I then ordered a 10-8 guide rod and a 10-8 plug. And while I was at it, I figured that I might as well get a 10-8 trigger, too. (I'll probably eventually get a 10-8 mag release, too, because I've gotta catch 'em all.)

    The Magpul grips are on it because, in my giant bag of 1911 grips, I don't have anything with a cutout for the SAI ambi-safety - except some black VZs, and I don't care for either black grips on a black gun or black-and-gray grips, and they cost me just over ten bucks (and they're another for now solution, while I wait for another set of VZs). It did occur to me that it would have been cheaper to buy a single-side safety, fit it, and then I can use any of the grip that I already have, but... oops, I guess.

    I just put it all together today.
