Rhapsody, I am actually NOT looking forward to see more pics of you... because I don't want to become obsessed with you (too late)

16???

Ok so the picture of mike scared me, totally unexpected.


Hence the "you have been warned" text on the link. I accept no responsibility for nightmares or permanent psychological scarring caused by viewing my picture.

I always thought you would look like you avatar.


I should be so lucky.

no, megamangaman just needs to learn that obsession is innapproriate and that self control is a very good thing to have.

@ megamangaman, you know responses like yours makes me wonder if we should send someone over and check you into a facility.

i'm such a luddite when it comes to pictures... but my sister sent me an ancient picture of me...
Image
to point out the similarities with my nephew...
Image
if you replace the blond-hair-blue-eyes with brown-hair-brown-eyes... the resemblence is pretty strong. (i feel sorry for the poor child :) )

so, instead... i leave you with pictures of my GUN:

http://gir.usc.edu/tjp/gun/DSC00421.JPG
http://gir.usc.edu/tjp/gun/DSC00422.JPG

which was handed down by my father, from my grandfather, who traded a "tank of gasoline" for the gun... it's a WWII era model 1911-A .45, frame made by Remington, slide made by Singer Sewing Machine Co. (or the other way around...), nickel plated, engraved, with grips of pure Ivory engraved with Dragons. i would guess that the engraving was done in China, or somewhere else in the Far-East during the war.

As I've annoyed everybody by locking the old pics thread - here's a photo of me.

Seriously though, don't look.

I am more impressed with the pistol than any other pics.. very nice weapon there zen. do you have an documentation to go with it? you may not be a collector, but paperwork could make that peice worth a small kings ransom/fortune.. :o

900,000 pistols of that variety were made during WWII and only 500 were made by singer. there were no combo peices that I am aware of, but that doesn't mean someone didn't put together such a peice.

from 1924 on the pistol was designated 1911A1.. and should have some sort of registration/serial number that you can trace for more info.. If it is a singer model, you got yourself a gem.. definately worth a ton. (although some collectors would have those markings and ivory actually decrease the value of the weapon as it has been

44) Singer: S/N S800001 to S800500 = 1941 ( Use great care in evaluating these. They
are very rare and valuable. This pistol is also counterfeited the most.)
Slide markings are: S. MFG. CO. ELIZABETH,N.J., U.S.A.

Model 1911A1
Serial Numbers Date Number Made

S/N C135000 to C139999 1924 5000
S/N C140000 to 144999 1925 5000
S/N C145000 to C150999 1926 6000
S/N C151000 to C151999 1927 1000
S/N C152000 to C154999 1928 3000
S/N C155000 to C155999 1929 1000
S/N C156000 to C158999 1930 3000
S/N C159000 to C160999 1931 2000
S/N C161000 to C164799 1932 3800
S/N C164800 to C174599 1933 9800
S/N C174600 to C177999 1934 3400
S/N C178000 to C179799 1935 1800
S/N C179800 to C183199 1936 3400
S/N C183200 to C188699 1937 5500
S/N C188700 to C189599 1938 900
S/N C189600 to C198899 1939 9300
S/N C198900 to C199299 1940 400
S/N C199300 to C208799 1941 9500
S/N C208800 to C215018 1942 6219

World War II and the years leading up to it created a great demand for the weapon. During the war, about 1.9 million units were procured by the U.S. Government for all forces, production being undertaken by several manufacturers, including Remington Rand (900,000 produced), Colt (400,000), Ithaca Gun Company (400,000), Union Switch and Signal Company (50,000), Singer (500), the Springfield Armory and Rock Island Arsenal. So many were produced that, after 1945, the government did not order any new pistols, and simply used existing parts inventories to "arsenal refinish" guns when necessary.

Before World War II, a small number of Colts were produced under license at the Norwegian weapon
