    Hello everyone. I’m hoping that maybe you could provide some help on an issue that I have run into… I recently purchased an Ed Brown Evo Kc9 to use as both my primary concealed carry weapon, and also a competition pistol. For a long time, I wanted a custom pistol, and after reading a number of...

    Someone wants to trade me a 1911 colt .45 acp. It would come with everything original and a 9.25 dillon barrel and spring with a colt 9mm slide and a 10mm fusion barrel with 5 10mm mags. My question is do you think the gun is safe? Is there anything I should know? Would it be better to have a...

    I was shooting my Dan Wesson Valor Government and Nighthawk Enforcer yesterday. I must say that I thought the Valor was softer shooting with the same ammunition (Federal American Eagle 230 grain FMJ). Perhaps the weight of the rail changes the equation? What do you think of recoil in railed...

    Hi all I've been lurking for a while now but this is my first post. Alright to get straight into the meat of it I've shot a hk uspc in 9mm for years and just thought I sucked at shooting any handgun then I tried a SAA and loved the trigger but I like automatics better so when I saw a friend at...
  5. Colt
    I recently received a 1955 Colt Super 38 from my Grandfather. It definitely has wear marks but is in decent shape. I really don't know any thing about it. What would you estimate its value to be? Serial number is 118241 Thanks
  6. STI/Staccato/Infinity/2011
    Hey guys so I have a question, I have a sti tactical 4.0 black out edition 2011 that I’m going to add into my carry rotation but my question is….is it possible to maybe switch the grip out for maybe a smaller grip like the staccato c2 size (120mm) ? If can someone share any pros and cons also...
  7. Springfield Armory
    Good afternoon all, I’ve had a SA Special Operator with full rail that was left to me from my father for years. I know it’s discontinued but I can’t find ANY info on the gun. No one sells it so I can’t see what it goes for (not that I’d ever sell it). Trying to find a solid holster for it is a...

  9. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Found a Sistema built in 1948 it appears. The Slide and Frame match, wrong grips and the barrel is not numbered to the frame and slide. I am not near the pistol to take it down and see the makers of the barrel. The person wants a Grand for the pistol, can’t see giving that much. Please let me...

  12. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Hey all! New member here. My twin brother and I managed to win two Colt 1911s at auction for our collection. I have a few questions about both of them. Below are the posted pictures. The first few are going to be of the pre-war Colt Military. The frame is 1913 military, serial number 56548. The...
  13. Ed Brown
    I am thinking about putting a Barsto barrel in my Ed Brown CA Executive Target. Is it the Springfield style or the Colt? I'm 99.999% sure it's Colt, but throwing this out on the forum before I spend 300 bucks. Thanks Folks! MD
  14. Rimfire!
    I just returned from shooting about 100 rounds thru my GSG 1911 22 with no issues. But after disassembling it and cleaning it, I started to reassemble it. When I feed the barrel back into the slide, it will not go all the way inside it. It stops about a quarter of the way in. I've tried putting...

    Here is my Norinco 1911 project. I know most on here hate norinco's but with a little elbow grease they can be a nice platform for cheap. I replaced some internals with ed brown/wilson combat parts. G10 grips were $13 on aliexpress. Compensator was $20 on ebay. Mag well was $10 on ali express...

    I work as an armed guard in low income housing and recently qualified on my Girsan 1911S but can’t seem to find a duty holster(I prefer safariland) that will fit with a surefire x300. Any advice? Thanks in advance

    I live in a country where you cant carry (concealed or open) your firearm unless you’re a member of public security agencies, military or politician, i recently got a license to possession of a firearm, only to keep it at home or take it to a gun range (in that case i can conceal carry it). I...
  18. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    I used colts website to look up the serial number, it came back to a 1944 colt 1911A1. I see on the Frame the inspector was F.J.A. Which was an inspector for Ithica and Remington Rand 1911A1s. So I’m kind of confused about that, also the slide is Colt. I see no stamps to show it was reworked...

    I've had my Taurus PT1911 for almost 7 years now and recently my ambi saftey has been popping out when target shooting and I am seeking suggestions on an ambi saftey that has a better lockup over my original that is obviously worn down. Has anyone else had this issue with their 1911 and what...
  20. Colt
    I purchased a Colt Super .38 1911. I was told it is a Wadcutter pistol. I asked if I can shoot special .38’s and was told to only shoot Wadcutter? I searched online to try and determine if there is such a thing as a Wadcutter pistol and cannot find any such thing? I have asked several gun...
