    Default Al Capone 1911 - New in the box from Turnbull

    Saw this and thought it might be of interest to some folks here (pricey, but pretty cool,...well at least IMO):

    I just read the GA email tonight myself. That looks like a really nice offering in the 1918 model. I would love to have one, but I would love more to have eyesight that was correctable enough to see the original style tiny blade front sight. The $1900 per copy is a bit much, but it's probably worth it.

    Nice looking, but you'd have to watch out for hammer bite.............

    I'd smile ear to ear every time that beautiful thing bit me.

    I had one just like it made in 1913. I gave it to my #1 son. No bawanna, I'm not going to adopt you.

    But Daddy! Why don't you luv me no mo?

    I knew you never liked me, never did, never will.

    I got to fondle a 1913 last Thanksgiving. Got to give it a good detail cleaning, first cause it was dirty and again after I drooled all over it.
    Sure like to call it my own, just leaked history all over everything.

    I got to handle a "period" 1911 last weekend, along with a military .38 revolver, Thompson, and a Garand. At Ft. Clinch on Amelia Island they had a veterans day shebang with weapons from the Revolution to today. Gatling gun too.

    The 1911 was a typical armorer's Frankengun, parts and pieces. They took out the firing pins from all of them so you could rack the slide and pull the trigger.

    I think that bite is what made Capone so good at being mean.
