    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...
  2. Ammo Can
    Good evening everyone I’ve owned two VZ-24’s and a few other 8mm Mauser rifles for some time. I haven’t had a hard time understanding what ammo to use until now. I recently had gotten ahold of some 8x57 JS, and it didn’t feed onto the bolt. I’ve checked the round and it looks like the rim is...
  3. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    I tried shooting my 1911 .22LR yesterday and upon doing that It wasn’t shooting. I know the bullets entering the chamber wasn’t the issue , I tried shooting it by clocking back the hammer and letting go and it shot. I’m new into 1911’s and have no idea what could be the issue. Would not having a...
  4. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    I recently received my CMPs 1911, Remington Rand receiver/slide. As I've begun to disassemble/clean the weapon I've discovered several markings that I need assistance identifying. 1) an illegible letter followed by a "B" in the area where the cross cannon cartouche should be. The cartouche...
  5. Para USA
    Howdy. So I just a purchased my first handgun. A Para 1911 .45 GI Expert. The box says it was manufactured in Ontario Canada. It's in great shape and shoots fine. But my problem is the barrel bushing. For starters it's to long for my liking. But that's not a serious problem. Just a personal...
  6. Colt
    So I just bought a Colt 1911 marine from a local gun store. I don’t really know anything about 1911’s but I knew that I wanted to get into them so I found one I liked. After I got it home, I took a look at the box it came in and I searched the model number, which is O1070M45. I kept finding the...
  7. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Hello and thank you for stopping by to help! Recently, my uncle passed away and so a family heirloom of sorts has passed to my father. Knowing I love war history, he showed it to me for the first time on Christmas day. The story goes (and I am not sure how much is story and how much is truth)...
  8. Browning Hi-Power
    So I have a browning hi power with a 1976 SN (76C2xxxx), but it has adjustable sights and seems to be a 1977 model. I have read that some 1976 SN rolled over into 77, but I was about to post on GB and I wanted to make sure I had my facts straight.. Anyone able to shed some light?
  9. 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...
  10. Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting
    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.
