Kelly....Saint, Saviour, Salvation!!!!

A solid teak wood box sits idle on the table, measuring about 20 x 12 x 5 inches. On the top, encrusted into the wood is the S&W emblem. Unlocking the 2 latches, the lid opens slowly and a bright shine catches the eye. Wrapped inside the silk red cloth is "Kelly". She is indeed beautiful. The finest precision instrument ever........right, I presume all of you are thinking of a girl but I'm not talking about a girl.....sorry. Now, back to the story at hand. Picking her up, a sense of power courses through the veins. Her full name, Smith & Wesson 1911 "Kelly".

The Emblem

She weighs 1.5 kilograms fully loaded and she fires the renowned .45ACP/ FMJ round. But with tender loving care, Kelly grew and matured. When she first arrived, she was in a sad shape. Stock model cost only USD1200.00 and it had a matte black coating. The hammer, slide guard and firing mechanism was all stock.

.45FMJ Round

But with research, hard work and investment, Kelly blossomed. She is now made from almost full titanium. Sporting an entirely new firing mechanism, extended safety, compensator, new slide release, custom grips and lightweight hammer, she became the Rolls-Royce of all 1911's. Total cost, USD4000.00. Well spent I must say.

The reason I named her Kelly? You'll know why. And therefore, I find her as The Saint, Saviour, Salvation.
Plus, she has an elder brother. His name is Roth.

Kelly and the a knife in comparison. Isn't she lovely?

Meet Roth
