Oh, and my trade was just finalized. Threw some guns up for trade on my gunboard and a guy came at me with this:

45 Colt (hee!) with a 45 ACP cylinder as well. 1976 vintage, has "MADE IN THE 200th YEAR OF AMERICAN LIBERTY" stamped on the barrel. Woulda preferred a shorter barrel, but you can't look a gift 45 Colt in the mouth I suppose....

Nice score on the 45 Colt. Getting the box and papers is a plus also.
The Bisley frame is a love it / hate it thing. After trying one out, I never looked back.
Here is some reading for you regarding your new toy and caliber:

No, but there is .45 mag, but you have to buy a Grizzley 1911 for it.

Not happy about it, but don't REALLY care. It's a trainer and fun as shit.
Expecting the finish to last on the GSG 1911s is pretty much a mistake. Everywhere you look that is just about the only (and first) thing all GSG 1911 owners bitch about. But to all it isn't a biggie since you can get the entire gun cerakoated for about 100 clams, and it really doesn't matter anyway since it is a .22 trainer like you stated. Mine started wearing off before I ever shot it since I trained drawing and such for a couple days. It looked like it was a year old by the time I shot it three days after I got it. The fun factor and accuracy made up for the finish weakness!

I have 1K rounds of new Starline brass on hand, and a brand new MiHec H&G #503 .44 Caliber Keith brass mould staring at me. Just need to get the lead pot warmed up.

Loading for the .44 or .45LC is really easy, fast, and satisfying (accurate). Congrats on your Bisley.

The Codpeice is going to give me nightmares. The movie was weird too. Very. At least there was some hot 70s pootang in it.

From what I can tell, the WF when pitched to the usa military was in 45 LC, in a very small number.(rare) The Mateba is in 454 casull which accepts the 45 LC.

Another note of interest that the military were the ones to name the .45 colt the long colt, to separate it more from the .45 schofield.

If I were to win the lottery I'm pretty sure I'd either die from lead poisoning or food poisoning.

I was in my 20's in the 70's too. Missed the movie, but I found it while channel surfing one sleepless night at 3 a.m. a few years ago and basically had "flashbacks".


That "Trigger Happy 100th Video" put a grin on my face. Thanks for posting.

The movie was typical late 60s early 70s acid (as in LSD) production style.
