  1. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and recently inherited a few different 1911 slides (including 3 Colt NM slides) but the one that stood out to me is a well-used vintage WWI Springfield Armory slide that has been parkerized, I imagine for a WWII rebuild. I would like to use the slide as a...

    I color filled this with a white crayon figured if I didn't like it could just scrub out with oil but it's been on there over a year now let's see some pictures of your color fill jobs thanks

    Just a quick story concerning Springfield Warranty service. I purchased a Springfield EMP 1911 last year. I immediately had FTEs. Within the first 5 rounds one failure to eject stuck inside the chamber requiring a wooden dowel to punch it out…subsequent range trips I experienced repeated...

  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...
