    New to me 1911 Just added to my Humble Collection

    Here are some pics of my new to me 1911 70 series I just picked you from this guy you may have heard of named Rick Bowles. The gun is extremely nice and I will take it tot he range to see how it shoots. Rick is great to deal with and I love the 45 and it is my first one, thanks another avenue to spend money, (like Pythons and SAA's wern't enough), my wife is going to unimpressed with that :OIMG_0153.JPG

    A beautiful series 70 !! I have to admit the Colt 1911 was my first love, something about John Browning's designs always get me. Congrats on a acquiring such a fine pistol, and to Rick Bowles for letting that one go to you. I'd be hard pressed to give up such a fine 1911. Even the grips are pristine.

    A "looks like new" Series 70 !
    From late in the Series 70 run I think, ? if so they were putting them together with the experience and expertise of 10 plus years.

    Very well could be the finest ever assembled, ...As for member Rick; I don't think he harbors anything but first class items.
