WTB: Range Grade 1911


Recommended Posts

 

If anyone has purchased one of the so called "Range Grade" 1911's from the CMP, the ones that they say are shooters, not collectors, and probably modified in various ways, and you have determined that you actually don't want it after all, I might be interested in purchasing it from you.   The only proviso is that I want one with an ambi safety, which the description said is a possibility.   Doesn't matter all that much who made it.  Other mods don't matter either.   PM me if we might be able to do business.

Incase you come across a good deal without, FYI, not hard to fit an ambi safety yourself.  Have done it on several older Colts ranging in age from the late '30's through the 70 series.

I know.   I put an ambi safety on my Colt reproduction 1911 when they first started making them again.  But the trouble is that while back then I was able to find an ambi that looked like original equipment, those don't seem to exist any more.   Every one on the market is extended or otherwise strange looking.

And, the idea of getting one that is GI surplus and has an ambi put on it by the government is an idea that really appeals to me.
