I have konown an seen a few LEO,s who have colt 1911 parts on a Essex or some other aftermarket frame .
some one wan to explain how a cop has several essexs with every other part being a original colt ???? Ill tell you the gun gets taken off a crook an the frame dissapears an then a $75 frame fiunds a new home.
I also knew a LEO who had a few to many DPMS an Rock river an bushmaster AR uppers an parts on some turd lower recviers
It took me over 9 months to get a piar of tokarevs a whack O GF stole an I never pressed charges or Id still be trying to get them back. It took a Inside LEO buddy to get them back. the gave me a lecture on having them an what was in my medicine cabinet not being locked . why the fuck they were in my bath room an my cabinet is beyond me . I told them to keep crooks off the street an I would not need to lock up anyhting an if my kid got in m ymeds id handle it were it meant something
like said above a few bad ones will make a lot of good ones look bad .
