    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...
  2. LEO Duty
    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
  3. Safes and Storage
    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...
  4. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Ammo Can
    Good day, I have a WWII replica, ammo crisis aside, I'm trying to learn more about what ammo grains/brands/types will work best? I have a box of '43 fmj that shoots smooth, but that stuff is generally kind of expensive and hard to come by. I'm a pretty new to 1911's and aside from my 9mm...

    If you're a member here, you recreationally look at gorgeous 1911s multiple times a day. Every now and then, one will stick with me, prompt multiple re-viewings, and ultimately influence my own firearm choices. Here are mine. The first was the Brownell's Dream Gun concealed carry 1911. The...

    Anyone know what happened to Jason and his company? I bought this 1911 from him back in the day that had been reviewed by John Taffin in American Handgunner. At the time Jason told me if I ever decided to part ways with it that he would like it back. That time has come and I can’t find any...
  11. Springfield Armory
    I am new here but know that SA Champions were discontinued about 10yrs ago. I am looking for a stainless steel Champion, and if it isn't possible is there a way to make the new version (RO Champion) close to the stainless steel color that the older model had? I fell in love with the bright wood...

    Hello everyone, I am looking for a USGI section for Springfield Armory 1911s from the WWI era. Is there such a place here? All I see is the SA commercial threads. Thanks, Rob
  13. Kimber
    Howdy, y'all, I'm new here -- be gentle. I joined the world of 1911s a few months ago -- this weapon has been a traditional staple in my family for generations. Every man on my father's side got a 1911 (either gifted or purchased themselves) when they reached their early 20s. Well, I went ahead...

    Not sure if ANYONE here really cares much about a review on the cheapest entry-level 1911 made, but Covid has all but killed my social life and I'm bored...so before I muck this pistol up, or successfully customize it, here ya go. I bought a very inexpensive Charles Daly Field Grade 1911 on...
  15. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    i am relatively new to the 1911 platform and just purchased a used Colt commander 70s series. I was having some malfunctions with the cycling where the casing wasn't being extracted from the chamber. This would happen about 10-20% of the rounds i shot. I was using both Colt and Wilson mags they...
  16. Colt
    Hello all, I am new to 1911's. Learned a lot about them in the past few weeks, though. I am in the market of buying a 1911. I really like the look of the all stainless guns but I have found a local used 50th Anniversary DEA Series 70 from 1980 that has really caught my eye. Overall gun looks to...
  17. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    New 1911 owner here. Having issues with my brand new kimber ulta carry 2. Slide stops about 1/8 inch or so from battery with or without ammo every other time or so. Absolutely cannot push it into position once stuck. Can get one round to chamber sometimes, fires fine then second gets stuck...
  18. Springfield Armory
    Hello all, First I want to start by saying I am a new member. Not a new shooter. I have only ever had one 1911 pistol. The Ruger SR1911. The SR1911 was a gift from a family member and due to its sentimental value I don’t want to carry it in case I have to use it. I would rather the police don’t...
  19. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    I have a nickel plated 1913 dated Colt. One of the grip bushings has come loose and came out. It appears unthreaded and the hole in the frame does as well. It has the six points on the inside from where it was staked into the frame. Were the early 1911 grip bushings non-threaded? Where can I...

    Hello, Currently have a kimber RHX PRO (optics ready). it comes with the suppressor height white dot sights, and the rear sight is part of the metal of the optics plate. As far as i know kimber does not sell any plates so i can add my own normal sights to the slide. Is there any way to machine...
