    These were a bitch to photograph but they are spectacular purple and gray and had a hunch they would look good on the HC ACW

    I'm not sure what happened, I really like Bobtails now. Three 38 Supers, Benchmark Precision, DW Guardian and DW Classic and four 9mm's; Volkmann, Wilson Combat Professional LWT, Kobra Carry and a DW VBOB

    The prices are truly staggering of some recent auction prices If you intention is to have a great gunsmith go through it and spend another $5-8,000 on gunsmithing, wow, just wow

    I commissioned this gun in July of 2019, it has all the options you need and none you don't. Since then it has seen a mere 350 rounds all at the range, never carried or holstered. Intentions were for this to be a daily carry and then I fell in love with my Counselor and that was that. I don't...

    I picked up the 1969 Hi Power I posted a few days ago and when I met the seller he said he was looking to sell some of his 1911s. He sent me some pictures today with prices. What would you pick up? The 1961 38 super is the only one committed to so far. 1. Colt Combat Elite- $900.00 2...

    We know Springfield Armory designed their 1911 EMP from the ground up. It made perfect sense to scale it down for the smaller 9mm cartridge. I'm thinking the same could be done for the 38 Super ammo by just reducing the thickness of the pistol from the full size. Have any manufacturer done...

    Markets selling off today on the Delta variant so I snuck out to the range to shoot the made over bobtail and grab lunch. I was quite please at 25 ft. I had two failures to extract and may need a hair more tension in the extractor. The @EvolutionArmory Guys are my heros :love: Also shot...

    What is the appeal of 38 Super? I have never shot anything chambered in that caliber but see a lot of 1911s chambered for it. So school me please

    Today was break-in today and first shots with the ACW Prime Carry 38 Super. Keep in mind, last night I broke down the gun and it was reassembled it one drop from soaking wet. It started interestingly enough by not being able to get a round chambered. First magazine, release the slide and it...

    I was delighted when this arrived at my LGS a day early. Just racking the slide requires more effort than you would think, the lock up is impressive. Thumb safety feels great, trigger feels great, I like this orange front sight better than the Ed Brown HD XR's as it's smaller. The front strap...

    I can't wait to get my 9mm VBOB slide back from Evolution Armory next month -- it's being DLC'd, the sights replaced, a French Border and flattened/serrated slide-top, so I'll have a very unique two/tone bobtail to slide in between these two 38 super's, The trio will be complete with a VBOB...

    I love this gun, light, thin, reliable and shoots tight groups, if my Counselor was smaller and easier to reload I would carry this far more. It's so hard to get on a smith's bench, any suggestions who would entertain a simple front sight swap? I want to use an Trijicon HD XR yellow or orange...

    My Easter Sunday treated me to meeting @BCD 45, an Addict many of you hold in high regard. After our FTF transaction for the two ‘Hawks pictured below I can now officially join the ranks of grateful brothers in arms for someone who we’re all lucky to have among us. A true gentleman, as honest as...

    I dug some @Gripwright Cherokee Hill exotics out today and dressed up the 38 super Custom Shop CBOB and my recently received 9mm VBOB. The VBOB is going to go through a transformation with a DLC'd or battle worn steel slide, new sights, Stan Chen TS, WC semi-extended slide/release, hammer...

    I finally made it to the range yesterday to shot two guns for the first time, a combination of work, back spams, conserving ammo and the range being so busy has cit down on my shooting by 75% of late. First I shot the "new-to-me" Benchmark Precision 38 super bobtail and boy was I impressed...
