  1. Remington
    A buddy offered me an Ian Turnbull Remington 1911 that was built in 2014, he's asking $1500. It's been fired 50rds, the retard put a faint dummy scratch reassembling it, otherwise it's like new. I know Turnbull's work is excellent, but was wondering if anyone owns one or has1st hand experience...

    One of the things people talk about when it comes to the 1911 pistol is the "two world wars!" thing. It was the duty handgun of the armed forces for a very long time, after all. The M1911, as it was initially designated, was formally adopted in 1910, given a refresher in 1927 and redubbed the...

    Hey Guys, Got a few various questions regarding building a 10mm 1911. Currently I have the frame from a .45, but its already got the small strip above the slide stop removed as its a fairly new frame and its a copy of colts new ones, I'm making a small assumption that its okay to use a .45...

    Hi all. I was just going through a bunch of my magazines to list them for sale and came upon this two tone 38 Super Auto magazine. It is in awful nice condition but I have a concern about it and am looking for everyone's input on it. My concern is the authenticity of the bluing on it. I've...

  6. Remington
    Hello! I'm looking to purchase my first 1911. I’ve more or less settled on either a Remington or a Ruger, although I’m open to suggestion. They appear to be well made, well reviewed, dependable, American made 1911s that won't break the bank. Problem is I can’t find any anywhere. There are some...

    Hello again 1911 enthusiasts, Time for a head to head poll! If these get any interest, I will post more polls comparing two 1911 companies against each other. Today's question is simple. If you were on a game show and you knew nothing more than behind curtain 1 was any Nighthawk Custom 1911...
  9. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Hey Everyone, I am pretty solid on modern weapons but trying to figure out a price on a Colt 1911 U.S. Army 1942 piece is way over my head. The range of prices on these things are insane so I figure I should try the experts. Any help on an appraisal on this one would be appreciated. Thank you!

    This post is lengthy but I’m trying to provide as much info as possible! I recently purchased a Tisas 1911 Duty 45acp and put roughly 800-900 rounds through it and starting to see 2 problems: Feeding issues and the ejection of the shell. I do a field strip cleaning after every range visit 1...
  11. Colt
    I've been a long time Colt fan, user and supporter of revolvers and 1911's. I've owned many, made trades, etc. For a few years now, I've been holding out hope that Colt's "Combat Unit Rail Guns" in .45 will once again become available for purchase. Unless someone gives me a reason top hope for...
  12. Other 1911's
    What would the value of this thing be? It has ambi mag release and safety with factory Pachmayr package. Gun Digest guide doesn't have just "Service Model C" listed anywhere so I'm at a stand still. If more info is needed to figure this out I will get my lazy butt off the couch and go look at it 😁

  17. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Recently, I acquired a Remington Rand 1911 that was included with a US ARMY Infantry Officer's Field and Travel Kit dated from 1944. The kit had an engraved tag on the front of the case with serial numbers that matched the SN on the handgun. I've never seen anything like this before and was...

    I have a 70 series colt that I have issues with. The first issue is that it double feeds and also it doesn’t eject the casing most of the time I broke down the issue to the lower receiver. Should I just change the ejector and call it a day. I’ve already swapped uppers with my other 70 series...

    Hello everyone! I was hoping I could gain some insight on a 1911 I was recently given by my late grandfather. I can’t seem to find any information about it in google. I have attached a photo of the gun. The slide is a Colt MK 4 series 70 with a Para Ordinance double stack frame. Any information...
