    That Colt 38 Super is an outstanding gun! I have a barrel in the mail for my British 1911 in 455 Webley / Ely. It came to me as all original except for the barrel. Finally found one on eBay. These are some great looking guns!

    This all started with one gun!

    My P08 is a G date (1935) so I suppose it was in the thick of it. The Colt M1911A1 is from 1944 and the Norwegian M1914 is an occupation variation from 1942.

    I was going to give the Pacific Theater pistols a little shout-out, but I don't have any Baby Nambus! No Papas or Grandpas either.

    But here is an interesting Type-14 transitional from 1932 (Showa 7.1). Still has the small triggerguard, early firing pin and no mag retaining spring.

    The Japanese Type-94 was a rather crude design. I can cause my firing pin to release by just squeezing against the sear spring on the left side. Not something you want to pass around if it has one in the chamber. BANG!

    I remember catching the dickens several years ago when I announced that I paid $750 for a tangent sight Browning High Power, built under occupation. It would be a steal today.

    Besides the various manufacturers of 1911A1's, S&W Victory's and Colt 1903/1908 Pocket Hammerless, one of my favorites is this 2-inch Commando which conjures up visions of clandestine ops.

    My first choice obviously would be a 1911A1 - but I don’t own one! I have many 1911 style pistols but none that were issued to the military!

    The ones I do have, and like, include a few odd balls:

    Here’s a Beretta M1934 that’s an odd ball. It’s one of 10,000 or so ordered by the Romanian Army fury WWII. Mine is all matching except the barrel. Chambered in .380 but in this case it’s marked 9MM SCURT which is Romanian for short.



    Here’s a hot little French number! The MAB Model D chambered in .32 acp. The Model D was made before and after WWII started with duplicated serial numbers! Mine is a pre-war Gun other then maker, model and serial number there isn’t much in tho way of markings.
