Anuj: A good variety, that old m1 Carbine must be a whole lot of fun. Those old ones last a long time, very dependable. I like those bolt actions as well, even if they are just .22s, reminds me of the M40a's that I got to play with at sniper school. That bolt action is really satisfying.
As I've mentioned, I'm not a fan of the Springfields. Pretty spendy guns. If you're looking for a good 1911, you can't beat the prices and dependablity of Kimber, and they make some great concealable designs. On the other hand, Sig Sauer/Sig Arms has their SigPro line that has some really quality .45s.
Yeah, it does. That 'commando' style barrel has it's uses in close quarters, I suppose... I'll keep it around. I'm buying two sets of optics for it, a Leupold Mark 4 1.5-5x20mm Mid-Range/Tactical M2, which is what I will use most of the time, and an Aimpoint comp m2 - M68/CCO, which is quite obviously a close-range to point-0 scope that I hope I won't ever need, but it's good to have
. With the Harris attached, I'll have a nice mid-range precision rifle platform for all my duty needs. Heading to my first day at the 2 week police training facility in colorado on monday, so I'll get to try it out pretty soon. They better have Match grade 5.56's, because I'm never putting an inferior round in my new baby
When I get more money to put into this, I want to put an Aimpoint LPI on her as well. Screw the harley, this is my new money hole
And, MAcSandNinEs, I'm pretty darn sure it's a Colt M4, since I ordered it direct through an authorized Colt Law Enforcement dealer.. and because it has the Colt M4 LEO stamp
Hurricane: You definantly want something more than a 22 for Concealed Carry...
You and Anuj should both look into the Kimber line of 1911/.45acps. I'd recommend the Stainless Pro Carry series or the Tactical Pro II's, good size, good power... Their Website
Rockford: Solid gun, dependable. How long have you had it?
