Unertl is making 1911's!
Yep, Unertl.
New modern factory in Las Vegas.
They, Unertl, make no bones about it.
The US military is looking at, initially, 2800 1911's and Unertl is targeting them.
Heck, they've already got the Marine sniper scope market.

S&W has a 1911; Sig, H&k and CZ are looking into making one.
Throw in all the other clones, the market exists.

Caspian matched slide and frame and Picatinny style rail.
Ed Brown, Videki, Smith an Alexander, and Pearce components.

Browning's design withstands the test of time and torture.

Colt blew it!

Their sins;

Too little, too late, and misjudging the market; slow mods and waffling with lack of vision.
Relying on gov contracts.
No 44 Mag for, what, 40 years?
Gov 1911 Series 70 vs Series 80 and back again but make both to cya.
Semi serious attempt with Trooper MK III then they almost got it right with MK V.
Drop the Model P, bring it back, drop it......
Those bastards they wasted their time on, the Boa & Viper.
Archaic(?) manuf techniques (what's REALLY wrong with MIM, castings, and new metalurgies?)

etc.

Don't get me wrong.
I wish them luck and I still have my Det Specials I carry, my D Back, and my (original) Gov Series 70.
I've also traded off Troopers, Pythons, and SAA's.
(I shoot/use, I don't collect. The ones traded off just didn't suit me any longer.)
I sincerely wish they can make it back to their glory days but, with more players the market's tougher these days.

Time will tell.

Interesting.

I found this one
http://www.1911forum.com/forums/showthread.php?s=ce22dc1b993131093e54bd2da27ae918&threadid=60657

He mentions the 38 Super.
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The other change in the 38 super barrel is the OD it is now the same as a 45..<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Do you know if there will be a kit to convert the 45??
