    Dreams do happen -- I always wanted a two/tone bobtail, sure some of the semi-customs guys can do it but I love Dan Wesson bobtails and wanted to do some "bubba smithin" at the same time and learn about the internals of the gun. I did the 3-hole trigger, slide-release and the Chen thumb safety...

    Today was a play day, cleaning and some grip swaps on my two 38 Super DW's. I have a VBOB (9mm) slide at Evolution for DLC, sights, slide-top treatment and a French border. That'll give me the holy trinity with a seldom seen two/tone bobtail to slip in between these two.

    Last year with Covid and the BLM issues I bought my Dad a Guardian, dependable, light, thin, etc. Over the past year he has struggled to carry it in comfort (I joke that it shouldn't be comfy, that's your reminder it's there). Granted he's a first time carrier and never even held/shot a gun...

  8. 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...

    I just got a new Dan Wesson Heritage in stainless with the plan on having the slide finished in DLC for that two-tone look. Considering the tight tolerances of the gun, should I break it in first or would it be okay getting the slide coated right off the bat (before firing the gun)?
