Another thread got me to thinking. Any owners of non-custom house "rare" 1911's? Personally, I like the Randalls, in particular the left handed models, but that's just cuz I'm a southpaw.

Here's one I carried for years. Today, it's my "house" gun.

Looks nice. :)

I have a Randall on my list to get, as I see them on Gunbroker.

They are fairly rare.

im not a southpaw, but that is just plain cool! i like that setup too. do you have any other pics of that gun? im curious about what sights are on there, and if i could get a full sideways shot of that gun to display the sights better. thanks!

Here's a couple more rare 1911s of mine, though not as rare as the first two I posted.

RRA Limited Match and STI Legacy. Neither are built anymore, but beautiful 1911s, in my opinion.

I'll see if I can scout one up or if not, I'll take one. Oh, the rear sight is a ghost ring, with a white dot on the front. Better for my aging eyes. Since it's a lefty, this is the only way I could figure out to mount the laser. Nice thing is, I can put the original sights back on and be back to stock. Not that I'm worried about hurting it's value. This one is a shooter, and it will be the last one to go, like when I'm gone.

I wouldn't mind wallpapering my whole house with pictures of his RRA then my second favorite would be his Yost WWI retro.

I think they're horned lizards.

I know the OP said no full house customs, but my Pistol Dynamics Signature model is the only one built so far on Liebenberg's new in house frame.

Check out the serial number. :tongueout:

This is a Baer Prowler III. While cataloged, hardly any are built.

It's not really TOO rare, but it's rare to find one of these in this condition.

Colt Commander Nickel with original box and papers...

There's an exact model like it at my local shop, but in much worse condition.

So when did you decide to start taking pictures? :dunno:

You should get a family pic while your at it. :supergrin:

This is an older pic, the gun now "lives" with my father. :supergrin: Mostly due to temptation to send it to Yost or someone of the like. It's all I have that I would even remotely consider "rare."
