    I’ve got an old Colt Model 1927 Argentino that I want to refinish. It’s been reblued at some point and wasn’t done very well. I’d like to have a parkerized finish (parkerized looking at least) so I have a budget USGI A1 clone. I’ve considered getting it parkerized, but now I’m leaning more...

    Was looking for a cheaper chore 1911 recently and found a Springfield Milspec Defender at a LGS and decided to get it. I had looked at a TISAS 1911A1 and was impressed, but wanted to spend the little bit more on the Springfield. Of course not long after that I find a used but basically new TISAS...

    My buddy at Impact Machine just picked this up and was asking for help to see what it’s worth. It’s a ‘43 and looks to be in original condition and nice roll marks but I’m certainly no expert on vintage firearms. This thing look original to you guys? Thank you in advance.
  4. 1911 Carry
    To carry the A1 I needed something appropriate. Figured I’d wear it hunting or when I’m wearing a jacket as it’s honestly really comfortable. I picked it up off fleabay it’s from El Paso Saddlery. Fits perfect! Also. The original clear grips I bought off the bat sucked ass. I ordered these off...

    Ordered some cheap clear grips to put on the A1 Tisas. Had my son draw me a picture for one side, it’s a heart and a drawing of me. On the right side is my wife. The grips are pretty clear but they don’t fit at the top on the safety side, the plunger hits it and it won’t sit flush. So I’ll look...

    Very exciting day today! I recently purchased this Wilson from a member here on the forum and I couldn’t be happier. Beautiful fit and finish, and I really like the two tone. This is my first “semi custom” and the feel of the slide and you rack it back just sets itself apart. I actually have...

    Hi all! I'm looking for a more reasonably priced basic 1911 that looks like a WW II pistol. I'll have to bubba it a bit with an ambidextrous safety due to wrong handedness. Reliability with 230 grain FMJ is first priority. Which makes and models have worked out for you in the $300-800 range...

    Bought this from Tyler at Cajun Concealed a couple of weeks ago when he put it up for the low, low, "what you see is what you get", bargain price of $275 - https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/1911a1-c-o-arms-dgc-gunsmithing-dream-gun-45.60937/ . At first glance it didn't look too bad, the...

    My FFL took a 1911 in on a trade last week. He has not priced it yet but when he showed it to me he said it was a USGI slide on a Rock Island frame. I should have taken more time to look at the frame markings myself but I was too distracted looking at Custom Shop SA that he has. I am a pretty...
