      Looks like an east European copy of the 1911.

    Atlanta: Burglary? Does have a different definition?

  5. Looks like a 1911. How do I clear the Picture on the screen to make it clear since I can’t make out the words on the slide. Awhile ago the method was explained and I never wrote it down and forgot. Anyone out there know how to do this evolution on the key board???

      The gun in the photo is a Cimarron Arms 1911 government model Colt copy. It was made in the Philippines. Cimarron is a Fredericksburg, Tx importer of replica firearms. They primarily import Italian made replicas used in Cowboy Action Shooting. They likely sponsored/imported this 1911 clone because several years ago the CAS sport/hobby started a genre using the 1911 instead of two single action pistols.

      P.S.: I don’t know how to do it on the ‘puter. I enlarged the photo on my cell phone.
