I'd bid but it has FCS and not my style of sights, but maybe someone is interested: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=234100845

But it is a whole heck of a lot less $$$ than the other RRA on GB. That seller is shootin' for the stars on that 1911!

That's a nice deal for someone.

It looks nice.

I agree. If I was gonna buy a RRA, it would have to have no FCS. :whistling:

Its better without, in my opinion, but I don't think its a deal breaker either.

True, but I've passed on a few that had them. Glad I did too. :cool: My first RRA won't have FCS....(hint hint). :whistling:

I also agree, some FCS can look terrible, but RRAs aren't bad at all. They didn't stop me. :)

I was wondering if that was a scratch or some dirt or something.

I think its a scratch. That gun is dying for a Black T finish anyway. ;)

Black T is just a little above average from a wear standpoint, but it looks great.

Some hard chrome after getting a Hi-power cut on the front and that gun would be smoking hot.

I don't need no stinking RRA from Gunbroker now. Today I bought one. And it doesn't have FCS to boot. :cool: Dave's gonna put the original 3 hole trigger back in it and the original wooden grips back on it. Should be getting it home soon. :dancingbanana::broccoli:

I'm holding out on a RRA with adjustable rear sight and no FCS. And no OD green. That's pretty much my one and only 1911 quest.

And it has a bid! I believe that's the first bid on a RRA 1911 on GB in a long time; most have a ridiculously high starting price of 2200 to 2800. Maybe the seller's 1499 was just the right move to get people talking and thinking.

it SHOULD have a bid at that price imho.
if not me then someone.
i wonder how high they'll go....

Wow, nobody seems to like FCS on RRAs.

Actually, many people don't like FCS at all, but it seems more pronounced on the RRA guns. I guess its because they're so clean looking otherwise. :dunno:

06-08-2011, 12:32
i dont think there will be just one :zipmouth:

All my game guns have FCS and I like them because my sweaty dirty hands need all the grip. But the RRA criteria is for cleanliness in appearance to my eye thus no FCS. I am not ashamed to say the RRA will be my good ol' boy show-off 1911. We all have the firearms which are tools and get used hard and often, but I enjoy having a nice o/u or 1911 or whatever to use sparingly and admire and brag about when the buddies bring out the Wilsons and Nighthawks, et al.

I've given myself a timeline to get this RRA before the TGO1 takes the top of the dream list. Probably should put my name on the TGO1 right now and save a year or two.

i like clean slides but FCS dont set me on fire like they do some people. the gun still is what it is. its no less of a gun for petes sake.

and fwiw the fine serrations like RRA and Baer use are actually not bad at all to me.

bikewriter
06-08-2011, 12:51
I wish my Baer's fcs were tad more dull and its front strap checkering a bit more sharp.

you can order the front strap 20lpi. its awesome:

Technically, it is less of a gun. They had to remove metal to make the serrations. :tongueout:

Just googled hi-power cut. I do like that look. Forgive my newbie-ness, but does a hi-power cut do away with the FCS....or once a 1911 has fcs they stay forever?

Its actually not a HP cut that people use to get rid of FCS. The serrations are normally slanted, while a true HP cut is vertical.

To answer your question, yes, a cut can be used to get rid of FCS.

This is a Hi-Power cut though.

The slanted cut is more of a P-series cut :supergrin: :
