I thought I read somewhere once that the Singers were never issued into service. :dunno:Never the less, a Singer has always been near the top of my wanted list, but I doubt I'll ever have that kind of cash.:crying:

Brian probably already has 2, 3, 4 and 5. This will fill out the collection nicely. :rofl:

Oh, yes, they were issued. Some sources indicate they went to the Air Corps. Might account for low survival rates if they went down in shot down or crashed airplanes. Only 500 made, of which only 2000 survive. You gotta watch out for fakes.

Just think in forty or fifty years some poor saps on a gun forum will be talking about a Kimber DET-1 going for $250,000 and being the rarest USGI 1911 in existence. :faint:
