    I was on record saying I'd never sell this but I don't shoot it and decided no safe queens so this is some addicts lucky day. This has been the most perfect, stunning gun in my collection, it is a heart stopper and in the right caliber for us addicts.. Turnbull, yes, Turnbull blue'd slide over...

    A Yost 38 super will complete my custom 1911 collection from our renowned builders who are reachable. Looks like there is no way to be on Ted’s book. So either commander or government size pinnacle builds with original build sheet is considered. If it’s my birth year 1976 build, I will pay more...

    Many times it's not the most expensive or fanciest gun that you love, this is the case with my Benchmark Precision 38 Super compact. Scored from GB, Allan Yoast Firearms, it was an accurate tack-driver from day #1, despite it's nearly 10 years of age and pretty much not being shot I felt like I...

    Working to put a 38 super barrel in a 9mm Guardian. Anyone know specifics on the ramp type or if the Wilson ramped barrel will fit? Thanks.

    I have searched and read post dating back many years. The more I read the more confusing it becomes. I received a NH 38 Super conversion a few days ago and now it’s time to break it out for a test run. I have bought ammo ranging from 1150 fps to 1380, is there a happy medium that I should...

    Don’t know much about this listing, but on the surface looks pretty good for what the seller is asking. It doesn’t give caliber in the title. I thought it may be a 45 ACP, which is why I read further and learned it is a 38 Super. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/929533241

    I bought this last summer when Ted had it in his shop knowing it would be a place holder until mine was completed. My steel 9mm Commander is out for hard/chrome and will be done in the next 60 days and my KGB 9mm Commander Lightweight build is nearing completion so....BOOM Ted said it was late...
  8. Caliber Talk: Ammunition, Reloading, and Shooting
    I don’t know if I’m just not looking in the right places l, but it seems like there are not as many defensive rounds for 38 Super from the main manufacturers. For the folks who carry this round, what’s the ammo you prefer. Jim

    For sale is my Alchemy Custom Weaponry Prime Elite 38 Super in hard chrome. The grips are Gaboon Ebony from WoodCaliber and fit the magwell profile nicely. The checkered walnut grips from ACW will be included along with the two mags and soft side case as it came from Rob. I’m selling my 38...

    Just wondering if there's anything keeping it from being done? I have an ECO in 9mm, and think it would be interesting in 38 super. Fusion and Wilson make officer sized bull barrels in 38 super. Is there any reason you couldn't get one fitted and go with it? I searched the forum but couldn't...

    I detailed stripped the 38 super now that I have 400 rounds through it and changed the grips, she's a beauty. She's sporting some sick @Gripwright burl beauties

    Happy new Year! So after joining here I wanted to see what all the fuss was about with 38 super. Picked this up to try it out. I've found I like the round, but there are some changes I would make to this setup. At this point I think it'd be easier to sell and get something more to my liking...

    I've had this Stealth for a while, it's an amazing shooter, very, very accurate and the heavy cone barrel coupled with being chambered in 38 super make it a very solid combination and it's a lightweight too :love: It always struggled with SD ammo even though I could shoot a 1,000 rounds of FMJ...

    Here's another one. I bought this base gun and sent it to Nighthawk in March of last year and the pandemic turned it into an 9 month build from 10-12 weeks. It had extensive work at Nighthawk including frame to slide fit, along with the natural upgrades of a ramped 38 super barrel, milling the...

    Guncrafter X2 Hellcat Government 9mm/38 sup - Tuxedo w/ extras (excellent+) Absolutely the finest, best shooting and looking, handgun I have ever owned or tried. Selling because my eyesight has made it so that I now only shoot my scoped rifles for fun, and I just don’t have the need to carry...

    We've all seen hundreds of 9mm/38 super combo guns but Ted Yost said in passing he won't build them as you have to compromise on both sides. He said the firing pin stop, extractor, ejector, mainspring are differant on each and just swapping barrels and recoil springs is fraught with issues...

    I wanted to venture into a new caliber, and I had decided it would be .38 Super. I was perusing the classifieds for .38 Super pistols and came across a stainless, unfired Nighthawk from fellow member BCD 45, who just happens to be one of the nicest gentlemen I've ever encountered. We...

    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
