That is a very nice collection indeed.
I have one more Raptor that isn't here yet and whatever doesn't sell at the auction that may come back. I believe the S&W and the Kimber Stainless are within $25 of reserve already and 12 days left. I believe $850 was my reserve on both. The 3 Springfields are hovering around $500-$525 still. The RIA still has a ways to go too....nice collection...
My wife just realized how many 1911s I now have 😂. She was balancing the check book after vacation and we were talking about how much we spent on that trip. I said, yeah but $1100 was on that Colt I bought on the way. She told me I spent $3k in the last week or two. I started laughing and asked her when the last time she was in the vault 😂. Long story short, she made a trip up there and I gave her the tour of all the new ones.I'll just assume if I can't find a stainless 1911 in stock, it's because Phil has it.
I hear ya. There is about a 75 year span between the 1850’s-1920’s when guns were still as much a work of art as much as they were a necessity. 3/4 of the guns in my gun room are modern firearms that were originally designed during that period. Even the mighty S&W 500 is nothing more than a series of improvements off of the S&W 32 hand ejector model designed way back in the 1890’s. Modern 1911s have undergone just as many improvements since they were originally released. I’m not a period correctness snob. I have just as much fun with the modern ones as I would the originals. Henry’s are no different.I am liking those Henry's too. I put a shiny black scope on mine. I love shooting a lever action and also my Marlin. I feel like Lucas McCain when I shoot them. The Rifleman went off the air the year I was born but I have seen every episode. I especially like it when he's shooting from the hip rapid fire and never misses.

Yep and that’s what it’s all about…New Henry's are fun guns.
