Can anyone tell me and or show me the difference in the top irons for the 14 touring and the 12? I'm sorry for asking so many questions but I am in hopes of taking the 12 I just purchased to the Big event in July if I can round up the parts to complete it. Thanks again John
Completely different. Top sockets for 1911 - 12 are a species unto themselves. They don't fold up as compactly as the later ones. Take a look in the photos section and look how much different the top bows are when stowed.
The 1913 - 17 top sockets are basically the same as one another and interchangeable. although there are several different manufacturers making detail differences.
