    Just picked up this one as a base gun for another custom build. Interestingly, this one has a colt WWI-style short wide-spur hammer. Looks cool and works well without the hammer bite.
  2. Competition 1911's
    This popped up locally and it was sort of an impulse buy for me, ive never owned a 1911. I was intrigued by the whole wad cutter thing and now im hooked. Its a 1970 in .38 wad cutter converted by who I would assume is Clark Sr. to a 6" slide for Bullseye competition. It started life as a 5" .38...

    I'm looking for a full size Guncrafter in 9mm but with an Alum Frame. I know sometime down the road I'm just going to have to break down and order it direct but was hoping someone had a Guncrafter full size that was needing a good home and could save me a few dollars.

    Is anyone familiar with this now deceased gunsmith's work? I'd never heard of him until a friend brought his Strahan 1911 to my range. Strahan did the conversion on my friend's Springfield, and he said it's the only .38 Super he ever converted. Besides the amazing work, which I've never seen...

    I ran across a Kimber Stainless Gold Match SE II in .38 Super . NIB @ $1500.00 I don't know anything about these models , Looking at it from a shooter rather than a collector point of view . Any insight would be greatly welcomed .

    Just started reloading again after many years. Reasons are obvious. Recently bought a Dillon 750L package with 9mm die set. I'm wanting to expand to different calibers but Dillon won't even return my calls. Excluding Dillon's dies, any recommendations on who makes high quality carbide die...

    Let's try this again shall we. This time with extra goodies!! Up fpr sale is a brand new Colt .38S LWT Commander. It was a limited run with the green frame. I took these pictures outside on my truck's tailgate with a little overcast. If needed, I can always take more with my tanlines and feet...

    I didn't want to derail the Wilson discontinuing caliber thread but it reminded me of a few questions I've been meaning to ask the people in the know. Why is a 1911 in .38 Super hundred's of dollars more than the same model in .45 ACP? Are parts more expensive? Are they harder to build? Are...

    I thought someone might like this deal on a Colt Series 70 in .38 Super! It is not mine...

    I just picked this up at a shop because it's a colt factory mag and the .38 Super mags don't pop up in the wild much. They are on our favorite auction site from 30 for one that was used as a hammer to 90 that's been polished and engraved for some dumb reason. Anyhow, I don't have a .38 Super and...

    You might remember the thread I posted when I bought this gun back in December - https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/new-toy-is-here-vintage-krebs-tripp-2011-race-gun.58997/#post-887665 - it's a Tripp 2011 built in '93 by Marc Krebs for the '93 Bianchi Cup. My original plan was to send it back...

    As the title states. Looking for the right base gun for a build. I'm in komifornia so it has to be at least 50 years old (C&R eligible) for me to import it. Anyone have something that meets the criteria that you're looking to move? Tried GB but their app shows guns that aren't C&R eligible under...

    Thought someone might like this Gold Cup Lite .38 Super. Series 70. MSRP was $1249. Looks like this was a Lipsey's exclusive some time. UPC: 098289112163...

    I've owned lots and lots of 1911s but never a 2011 and never a race gun but that's about to change. During last week's discussion about the Vickers built Colt on gunbroker I had noted that the seller also had a Marc Krebs built 1911 for sale. Since I'm a fan of Marc's pistol work and have a...

    I've been looking at these current production hard chrome Llama .38 Supers for a while now. They look to be decent mil-spec guns made in the Phillipines. I must admit I am intrigued by them. Anyone looking to give a .38 Super a shot, this might be your best low cost alternative...

    Every 1911 I have had I would just grab some ammo and shoot the crap out of it without reading the manual (including a CBOB 10mm) and never had a problem but since this was my first .38 Super and it was very tight I decided to follow the manual and all the advice from here and do it properly. I...
