    I would not say that I'm new to 1911"s, as I've had a Springfield Loaded for many years and enjoyed shooting it. I've also owned a SA Pro, but never shot it, as I was too intimidated by it, and eventually sold it (for a nice profit). I've done a lot of research, and I really like the offerings...

    Seems like it’s been a day or two since we had a good “what would you do?” thread and I could use a few opinions. I have been thinking hard on a Alchemy Prime Elite with the accuracy upgrade and a few other bells and whistles to put it right at $4k. With three baby girls, a house renovation...

    When it comes to 1911s, I tend to be a traditionalist. That's why I love my Prime Elite. But, I'm starting to find myself drawn to the Quantico Hi Cap. Does anyone have one? What do you think about it? I'd love to see one with the square trigger guard. Speaking of trigger guards, what's...

    The STI DVC Tactical has been one of those guns that has always eluded me, they are available when I can't afford them, or they are no where to be seen when I do have the funds available. I have the opportunity to purchase one now, it's BNIB, .45. An absolute beauty and IMO the best looking 2011...

    Received the ACW Prime Elite yesterday. Josh is a stand-up seller. Lightning-fast shipping and the pistol is exactly as described. Buy with confidence.

    So in the quest for a high level of accuracy, most would agree that the CCP WMG is pretty high on the list. 1.5" at 50 yards is a crazy level of precision. I've told myself many times that if presented with the opportunity to buy one, I would do so. But then I get to looking at pictures of...

    The serial number rung a bell with me. Wasn't this owned at one time by one of our fellow addicts? Or maybe currently owned by an addict. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/885430422#carousel-modal-view-item

    Alright guys, You're going to get yourself a carry gun. I present you two different guns to choose from. I want to see what you'd want to carry with you. For the record, I carry a Sig P365, and sometimes a Canik TP9 Elite SC IWB. So sizes compare pretty well. Prices are - WC EDC X9S -...

    godddd. Retyping all this because I accidently hit the back button. UGH I decided my next order to be from ACW. I want the smaller brimstone. I might carry it IWB, or in official capacity OWB sometimes. I'm having a tough time deciding between 9mm and 45acp. I'm a 9mm guy (always have been)...

    For sale – Beautiful ACW Prime Elite 45. Comes with 2 Mags, paperwork, lock and custom ACW carry bag. Why wait 6-7 months when this one is available now! So I had this ACW Prime Elite 45 on order for 5+ months. Before I took ownership, a Forum member shared a pic of his ACW Classic Carry in...

    I’ve been weighing my options for steel frame commander style pistol. The two main requirements: it must be 100% reliable and accurate with my issued duty round be it the Federal HST or the WW Ranger T 230gr JHP. I’m a Wilson Combat user at heart. I own 8 of them. Been using at least one for LE...

    The 1911 grip setup that feels the best in my hand is the Colt enhanced, high cut trigger guard, long trigger, Ed Brown grip safety and an arched mainspring housing. I bought a Para Ordnance LTC that I was going to have made up into a custom CCW, but have since decided that I'd be sinking a lot...

    After much anticipation, this gem arrived today. No surprise to anyone reading this, but the perfection of the fitment, blending, and finishes is unsurpassed. Hard lock-up, glass rod trigger break, and I can see my reflection in the gold bead front sight. It was a tough call to go with hard...

    Finally got to shoot the Brimstone today, and all I can say is WOW, very smooth, very accurate and just feels so good in the hand. If I didn't know any better I'd say someone measure my hand and built the gun to my personal specifications. This first target are the very first 2 magazines I ever...

    I ordered this PE at the end if January (posted in Alchemy Picture Thread) and picked it up Wednesday. @Cop_Out had posted his Alchemy Brimstone Hard Chrome before I took ownership of My PE. I had been watching his Brimstone in HC along with a PE in Hard Chrome. After seeing his pictures, I...

    Bought this beautiful ACW Prime on here not long ago. Rob had posted in the thread for the buyer to contact him, so I did as soon as I had it in-hand. I mailed the slide to him, and they tuned, polished, and refinished the slide FOR FREE. They got the slide Tuesday afternoon, and it was done by...

    I'm the Cabot and Alchemy sales rep and I'll be at Saddle River Range in HTX this Friday 6/12 and Saturday 6/13 with a bunch of Demo guns for both brands PLUS a couple available ACW's. I know that a lot of you addicts have heard about ACW and Rob's work but don't get a chance to see/hold one...

    Good afternoon gentlemen! I have finally saved up enough coin to add another specimen to the stable. I am not starting a “which is better” debate, because both of these pistols are top notch and are a lot of gun for the money. I have narrowed it down to Baer’s new heaveyweight premier II and an...

    I have been staring at ACW's website like Squints stared at the blond lifeguard - I must have one with the hard fit barrel. The problem is, I really like everything I have, but something will have to go to make the financial room for the Prime Elite. When I bought my GI Hellcat, I sold a custom...
