    Not specifically trying to call out NHC, but this was a picture they posted on FB a bit ago to show off some stippling. My eye was immediately drawn to that gap on the right between the frame and magwell. That’s pretty substantial and I don’t think thata camera angle issue. I find it hard to...

    I think so. I have only been into 1911's for about 6 years now. Better triggers, better mags, and much nicer guns.

    Your opinion experience or tales of the cheapest and best functioning 1911. Trying to help a friend pick something.. He is a new shooter and this would be his very first gun. He is in his 50's. He is gonna use it as a range and practice gun. Will appreciate any input.

    Just curious what you would consider the most collectable, or most valuable 1911. Other than my first answer of "mine," what really is worth the most. I'm not just really talking price per say, you can drop anything you want on a new one, I'm talking about "history," kinda tough to explain I...

    I have the opportunity to buy one or both of these from an elderly friend of our family as he transitions to assisted living...they are both NIB and only factory fired with the exception of the Standard...I am the first one to shoot it and after field strip clean/lube I only shot 8 rounds...

    So I have some ideas of what I would like to do to this gun...I’ve had it forever and it’s a great shooter but I don’t think I even have 300 rounds through it… My dad bought it brand new in 1980 shot it very little and it sat in his safe until I graduated from high school (1988) and that was my...

  10. Want To Buy Classifieds
    Looking to purchase a Nighthawk 1911 to add to the collection. I prefer full-size but may be interested in a commander as well. I prefer 9mm but may be interested in a 45 as well. I would prefer it to have a recon rail (except the VIP models) but feel free to show me what you may be trying to...

    Because everyone loves polls, why not another one. So the criteria for this poll is custom and boutique builders that offer new builds using all new parts. No rebuilds for the purpose of this discussion. And no semantics on custom vs semi-custom lol. All prices listed in the poll are MSRP per...

    For sale is a like new, barely used Palmetto holster for a full size 1911 with rail constructed of black and brown Elephant hide. Very nice holster! Looking to part with it as I am awaiting my NHC's return from the custom shop with the IOS system and this holster will not accept a pistol with a...

    Well, I think this is a long shot but I might as well try. My birthday is coming up in April and I’ve been saving up to find a Dan Wesson Discretion, full size not the commander, in 45 ACP not 9mm. I was hoping to purchase one of these back in 2020 but I thought it would be best to save my...
