Non Standard M1911A1

Not advisable to shoot the select fire 1911 with only one hand, or so I've been told. Supposedly, one or more gunners executed themselves with headshots near the end of a full mag.

These were first seen back in the twenty's or thirty's.

I've seen pictures of the Spanish Star and Llama selective fire 1911 look alikes, some even had clock spring type rate reducers under the grip, but beyond selling to chinese war lords, I don't know what actual use they were, especially if a carbine or proper SMG was available.

The guy was using the shoulder stock, I've heard from a few that if you're not expecting full auto, the third round genrally goes up your nose...

So is that a one-off U.S. gov't experiment, part of a limited gov't contract, or a private job? Let's hear some history on that if you can find any. I really like the holster/stock combo; similar to the Hi-power.

One of the famous outlaws of the Depression (Pretty Boy Floyd IIRC) liked full auto 1911s. His had a second grip mounted at the front of the frame.

My 1944 Colt M1911A1 went full auto on me one day at the range. The sear spring was installed incorrectly (my bad).

Even though I obviously didn't expect it, I was able to control it enough to only shoot up to the top of the backstop where it meets the ceiling.

When I finally ran out of ammo (1.5 seconds can seem awfully long) my right arm was still nearly straight.

well, I'm adult enough to admit I'm not man enough to handle all that, but it looks like fun.
