View Full Version : Ma Bad Boy - ITHACA 1911A1

10-10-2009, 10:52 AM
I love it's stopping power and the bang each time it goes off for business.

The thing which really made me fell in love with this fellow is that when I detailed striped the gun, I was really amazed to see it's internals, the quality at the time over 70 years ago, it's current condition and the way it was kept. Since then I have a great respect for these boys (1911A1) and the fire power of the .45 ACP.

Lovely gun there, I also inherited an ithaca 1911,
i have great respect for these old war horses. they are build with excellent crafts manship so they veteran of two great wars & many conflicts. Build quality is so high that they are 100% reliable out of box if you feed them what they are designed for mean ball round.

Thanks bro. Indeed a masterpiece.

10-10-2009, 01:36 PM

Thanks bro. Truly a gun being in use over a century and still being copied as replicas is worth keeping.


Thanks bro.

Wonderful gun.... Itaca was one of the wartime makers of 1911, during one of the World Wars....

Thanks bro. ITHACA started producing the M1911A1 in December of 1942. They produced the modified version M1911A1 along with Remington Rand, Colt, Union Switch & Signal, Singer, the Springfield Armory and Rock Island Arsenal.

no doubt 1911 is the best design

10-10-2009, 11:27 PM
@Glockaholic - nice piece Ilyas bhai has one too really really clean piece. The Remingtons and the Rands fetch good value to collectors whilst the rarest is the Singer manufacture and the second rarest is the Union Switch .45acp.

11-10-2009, 09:19 AM
@Moeen Bhai,

Who is the manufacturer for the one available in Peshawar? Colt, ITHACA or ??

11-10-2009, 11:17 AM
@Glockcholic just a quick question, which one you will pick without any hesitation if you will have just one choice (1) any top one of Glock (2) top one of Sig (3) 1911 A1 plz do reply as I think that most probably your answer would be........ ?? :D

Please note: This review just discusses about the brands mentioned and it doesn’t say that these are the only realiable or quality brands producing guns. This is just my personal opinion about these particular brands. I still love and depend on some other brands as well & which are not included in this review.


As per your list of Brands and just one choice, let's assume that I don't have any other brand as yet and one I have to choose then I will pick as following:

For CG (Carry Gun) Glock 17 with out any hesitation &
For CC (Conceal Carry) Glock 19

Reason being why I choose Glock is that I hv personnaly seen and have been breiefed by one of my friends who works for Glock. I M more than satisfied by it's performance and the built quality (Barrel, Slide, frame, mags and all internal parts) that Glock can go for thousand & thousands of rounds without any problem plus :

1: Simple Safe Action.
2: Easy to Maintain as per cleaning is concerned.
3: Realizable & Accurate
4: Manageable weight with loaded mags
5: Great Grip Ergonomics

For me it's like having more than one child and to decide which one U love the most. Of course it could happen that one loves his one kid more than the others but still he loves the other more than his own life including the one he loves the most.

For me the list of brands (kids) is as follows and I would like to use any one of these any time of the day, week, month or the year. But Glock will be my "Laadla & Caheeta". But I will not let him spoil my love for others. :)

1: Glock
2: HK
3: Sig
4: Beretta
5: Colt

Serial No. for the above mentioned brands does not represent the quality or top brand. They all produce great guns. Again the preference is the key only as some time one would like to have striker fired gun, some time hammer fired, some time U wana have the feelings of a steel gun an so on. All these brands produce realizable and quality guns. So it's just the preference and mood at the time.

11-10-2009, 06:37 PM
Sir, you have some very prestigious others also :)

11-10-2009, 11:21 PM
@Glockcholic... a very nice gun, as usual in your case :D

There is one for sale in Peshawar right now supposedly BARELY USED for 120K.

Moeen bhai, which make is it and location plz!

11-10-2009, 11:56 PM
