Sometimes you just can’t keep a good gun down.

This neglected 1911 .45 caliber pistol gets a full restoration and test fire on camera.

Any time I see a neglected firearm my heart gives a sad sigh. This historical service pistol has witnessed some bad days in its life. Well now is the time for it to roar freedom again!

In this video shared by YouTuber The Kinzler Bros we witness the transformation of a hunk of rust to once again a great functioning pistol launching those glorious 230 grain full metal jacket loads as Mr. John Browning intended it to do.

Sit back and watch this old warrior make noise again. Now that is a great sight!
