Colt 1911A1 Marushin replica

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! Bought this awesome japanese Marushin replica pistol few months ago. Its the better holster filling for my Cathey holster than the ugly Denix 1911A1 model, which I sold after receiving the goody. Now I need original grips for the perfect look.

 

cheers

Michael

Don't bother, originals don't fit the holes in the receiver...

 

I've two of these in holsters on my mannequins and I've painted the grips the correct brown...

Can't see the round logo anyway!

A similar Colt in the shoulder holster of this guy.

Thank you for saving money Johan! I ll spend it for the correct magazin pouch. I have got a very faded out piece of the VN era, its time to change it.

 

Cheers

Awesome display Erwin! Getting a deactivated Thompson is my next project. Cannot decide between 28A1 and M1A1... :think:

Thanks, Michael. :)

The M1928 looks "cooler" in my eyes but is more expensive.

I have an idea you could make some customized grips out of clear plexiglass material and put a photo inside like they use to do during WWII

 

Clear 1911 grips first appeared in ww2 when GI's would knock out the windows of downed aircraft and shape them in to grips for there service pistols. they called them "sweetheart" grips because they usually protected a picture of there wife, girlfriend, or pinup.

 

then you could drill the holes in the correct spot so they fit your replica pistol

I think they would make your pistol look a little more authentic, you could easily find some WWII era black & white photos of young girls and cut them to fit under the grips.

That was my first thought--that as pinups go, the model in the transparent grip photo was over-dressed and over the hill.

 

My (unsolicited) solution would be to buy a set of the inexpensive cheesy brown plastic GI grips that were furnished with original M1911A1 pistols. But if you want pictogrips, that's great.

 

It amuses me no end that people in Germany collect USGI junk, while people in the US slobber over anything German.
