    Not that it is necessarily 'a bargain' but you don't see these come up very often. Early serial number, only like four smith's listed on test targeto_O now there's like how many???!!! Looks in very good shape. I have no affiliation and have done no vetting. https://www.gunbroker.com/Item/924161244

    I recently picked up the 10-8 hammer and I've always liked how it paired with the look of Hilton's signature beavertail. Before it was a machined barstock part, Hilton started off modifying regular grip safeties to have the U-shaped scooped at the rear. Originally, it was done to distinguish his...

    I finally finished my 2nd 1911 build! I actually started this one before my "first" 1911 build but I did this one pretty slowly over the course of a year so it ended up finished second. I followed along Hilton's Duty Tune DVD and both the video and Hilton himself were greatly helpful resources...

    The 10-8 spur hammer is back. Main difference appears to be the lack of the sand cuts on the side? https://www.10-8performance.com/hammer-1911/

    https://www.instagram.com/tv/CPIxcxLHG_i/?utm_medium=copy_link Pretty sure the 10-8 page on IG is open to the public. Hilton talks about some cool stuff in these if anyone is interested

    I know there are a lot of 10-8 fans on here so I’m just posting for those who didn’t catch it - Hilton started a patreon and it appears it’s gonna be focused on a lot of 1911 and training content. I’m not affiliated with 10-8 in any way but I know I’m not the only one here who gains a lot from...

    Last year I decided I needed an indoor hobby that wasn't video games so I settled on taking Hilton Yam's 1911 duty tune DVD and applying all the steps from start to finish to a Springfield Mil-Spec. I did almost everything with 320 grit sandpaper and a #2 swiss file so it was a nice way to spend...

    Hey folks, I'm thinking of getting my Springfield mil-spec slide machined for a front sight novak dovetail. It already has a 10-8 NM rear sight with a .140 u notch and I was wondering what everyone here preferred for a front sight to match with that. The 10-8 website states it's compatible with...

    This is my Springfield Range Officer Elite Operator in .45 ACP. It’s been slightly reworked with a Wilson Combat reliability package and their bullet proof extractor. I also installed a Stan Chen SI Magwell and I'll throw in a picture at the end of the magwell. In just a little over a week, I...

    Saw this on gunbroker. Says 10-8 1911 but does not have the Dawson light rail. Researching on Google makes me believe these pistols only came with the Dawson light rail. Any info would be appreciated. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/868199657#carousel-modal-view-item

  16. General 1911 talk
    Gents, I recently acquired a 10-8 Performance extended magazine catch from an Addict. I like trying out new parts from different manufacturers and 10-8 has been on my "check out" list for a while, and the pricing was too good to pass up. I received it about a month ago and just got it...
