    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

    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...
