1911 Gun Porn

All from Guncrafter Industries, makers of the .50 GI 1911. First up is their “American” Model, a loaded 1911 on which pricing is still not available on their website, however as you can see from the SHOT SHOW picture (previous published here) it is filled with bells and whistles.

I also have a neat picture of their new .50 GI round – previously available in 300 grain JFP or 275 grain JHP, they have a new, all copper .50 GI round, pictured here. I wish I had written down how much the round weighs, as they don’t have info on their site yet about it.

Now we can go back to the gun porn, and my favorite gun in the Guncrafter Industries line-up, the .50 GI #2.

Oooh...
Oooh...

Let’s see, full length dust cover, tactical rail, firing a proprietary .50 caliber cartridge?  Oh yes, do want.  Because it’s so expensive though, the .50 GI is one of those “if I had unlimited funds” guns – I’d love to own one because it would just MURDER bowling pins (a 275 grain at 850 FPS?  Yes please), and also because anything with “.50” in the name of the caliber makes Sarah Brady cry.  Sure, the .50 GI 1911 is old news, but it’s still fun news.

I would shoot one of those in Limited-10 just to say that I shot a .50 in USPSA, which you have to admit would be pretty cool.  The Guncrafter Industries Model #2 can be had for $2895, and is also available in the more conventional .45 ACP.  When Barry Obama’s magical unicorn with saddlebags full of cash shows up…
