Thought I posted my TRP but forgot to. Was going to get full rail but didn’t want to stray too far from traditional look with a rail. Didn’t really want the rail at all but liked the look.

Very nice brother.

When I got mine around 2005/6 the TRP Operater only came with the full rail.

I love the gun. The only think i dont like the is rear sight. It is sharp as hell.

Looking to replace it soon with a Novak type rear sight set up for that slide cut.

Some would say not to shoot it.  It is a collectable.   Her value will go up.  It's a safe queen.  But Mr Rogers would say fuck them and light tha pig on fire, run her hard and learn the gun.

Falcon Reborn - Falcon 2.0

I decided to take a trip for my birthday to the Ozarks. Slight turn to Nighthawk Customs in Berryville, Ar... Stayed in beautiful Eureka Springs. 

Month or so ago, I sent my Falcon in to the original builder for a face lift. I am second owner. It left NH in 2013 with a black slide and olive drab green frame. Evidently, the owner got sick of the green and had the whole gun cerakoted black. Normally most of their black 1911s are Nitride. So I had them re- nitride the whole gun back to orig look. I changed out the NH grips with another set of NH grips with a pewter NH emblem. I removed the rear Heine site, (hated it) and installed a Trij rear. While it was there, had them install new ss barrel and had it gold tin coated. They fine tuned everything and test fired it. At the advice of the builder, why not blacked the barrel bushing and trigger. It would look awesome. Gave him the ok. They had everything ready by time I arrived. 

These are awesome people. Facilities are huge and well stocked with top notch machinery. The facility is huge! I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks to Bob and Joe for the welcome and tour. Now waiting for my 9mm Agent 2 which will be another 2 months or so.

Here are some before and after shots.


When I bought it....

New to me Service Grade CMP 1911.  Remington Rand slide on an Ithaca frame circa 1944.  Note the "Yawman" stamped trigger invented by Ithaca.  Markings include Augusta Arsenal (AA), Anniston Army Depot (ANAND), Frank J. Atwood inspector (FJA) and some others I'm still deciphering based on coolgunsite.com.  It's like I'm trying to decode the Rosetta Stone to figure out the provenance of the parts.

Sent in the paperwork about a year ago, got a 9500 range lottery number, forgot about it and wrote it off, and then my cell phone rang last Thursday at 9AM from Anniston, Alabama.  Took her home today (you gotta love Florida and $15 no-hassle transfers).

Was it worth the price compared to what I could have bought 1911-wise in today's market?  Probably not.

But, it pairs nicely with my CMP Garands and it's cool AF!!!

I've added a few 1911's over the last month.  The theme has been "I like shiny things"...

Another is still in jail, should have that by the end of the month.  Let's just say it makes all of these look like imposters, and it's in 10mm :)

Just picked up another 1911 - Love the look and grips, has an amazingly light and crisp trigger.

Sign Max MIchael 1911.  Has had a trigger job from Sig and came with 5 Wilson Combat mags.  Series 80 parts all replaed with 70, the original parts are in the case.

Paid much less than what the tag says.  I love NH!304692711_SigMaxM.jpeg.eda04b83add62e38130a7826d889ca47.jpeg

What caliber did you get?  How does it shoot?  I've heard good things about these.

    • My point was, typically, business cycles are like 6 - 8 years, before a reset. Of course, that's not set in stone, and it depends on the underlying economic conditions. But, many of the underlying conditions that have negative affects on the economy, have been there for the last few years, but the cycle continues... I talk to all my financial guys, and they all say we're way past due for a major correction, and it's coming, but no one knew when that would be. None of them think the underlying conditions are healthy, most of it doesn't make any financial sense, so they just shrug their shoulders, and say let's make money while we can. It may appear to you, and other MAGA people, that the overall economics have been strong, but the patient has been kept alive by "life support" of artificially low rates, and a defibrillator (monetary games). Remember, the FED lowered rates 3 times last Fall, to "juice" the market. That DOESN'T happen in a "healthy" economy and market. It just maybe, that someone just pulled those plugs...
    • I started reloading in the 60's with my dad. I always enjoyed reloading with him. He thought it was a great way to save money on hunting loads. We were loading paper shells back then, with waxed and fiber wads. Times evolved, and prices went up. In 1995 I was still reloading shotshells for $.10/round with components bought at the local gunshops whenever I stopped in for a visit. When components were everywhere, it never dawned on me to buy in bulk.   Then things changed. Primers became scarce, lead shot became scarce and the new precious metal, gunpowder became hard to find, etc. Local gunshops stopped carrying wads, powder, and soon all reloading components and accessories, etc.  But I still reload 12, 16 & 20 gauges. I can tailor and make any load in any combination that I want. That's why I do it.  Cheap factory shells today are cheap for a reason. Brass washed steel bases instead of brass are tough on chambers and reloading equipment. The low antimony shot they use often make for inferior patterns. Unless you opt for a quality plastic shell, most of the cheap shells are also inferior to reload with. Are the cheaper factory loads okay for impromptu hand-thrown clay bird sessions? Sure they are. Can you hunt with them? Sure you can. Can you break clays from the 16 yard trap line or Station 4 on a skeet field; of course you can. Then again, no Olympic shooter that I know of is using factory Remington Gun Club's today.   If you don't hunt, are only an occasional shooter, don't have a need to make 2 1/2" shells for your old doubles, don't have a need to roll 3/4 oz. 20 ga. loads to save money, don't have a need for 7/8 oz. 12 ga practice loads, don't have a need to make your own buckshot loads or don't have a need to make a heavy 16 ga. pheasant load; then it may not make much sense to reload.  Wakeman's take on quality shells is a good read:  https://www.chuckhawks.com/good_shotgun_shell.html    
    • I would argue that periods of time where growth stalls or retracts are caused by bad economic policy not just a cyclical foregone conclusion.  Prior to the 80s and back to the great depression the recessions in growth where a few to 5 or 6 years apart. Horses have four legs but everything with four legs isn’t a horse.  It may be that policy swings and resulting consumer sentiment has cycled with a 5 to 10 year period.  But that doesn’t mean the period doesn’t change or that its not possible to go much longer periods of time without a contracting economy. Don’t know.  I’m not a financial analyst. I’m a technologist. Want me to look it up?
    • OK, so what event caused the down turn in the Fall of 2018, when the market fell like 4000 points?
