Hello. First post to these boards, so a bit o'me-self: Navy, 16yrs in, stationed in Colorado (ship? what ship?), avid weapons collector who just ordered a K31, case of ammo, and placed on layaway an M1911 Karbine. Got to love them Swiss: Swiss chocolate, Swiss women, Swiss gold, Swiss weapons. Anyway, Can anyone tell me where to find info on the 1911? I see loads of stuff on the K31, but little on the '11. Specifically looking for dates of manufacture, safe loading, spares sources. For both: accessories, shooting matches in Co/Wy/Ks/NM? Anything really!
