    Guys, For your consideration is my brand new, received on Monday, Alchemy Prime Elite in 45 ACP that I ordered directly from Alchemy last year. Since then I have changed the direction of the guns I have in the works and for personal reasons no longer have any interests in the Alchemy line of...

    Fellow Addicts, I’m diversifying my pared-down collection – I recently picked up my first BHP and have my eyes on my first revolver – so here is a BNIB Alchemy Custom Weaponry (ACW) Quantico HiCap chambered in 9mm (link to ACW site here). I spec’d out this pistol in October 2020 immediately...

    Been a huge fan of the look of the ACW builds, and thanks in part to the enablers here! (Haha, just kidding!) picked up my first two, because when doing something, I believe wholeheartedly in overdoing something. ACW Prime Elite 4 Case Color & Hard Fit, and a Prime Carry in 9mm. After years...

    Well, after much drooling and looking at pic threads and reading posts and watching Youtube vids... I emailed George at Gunslingers inquiring about ordering an ACW Prime Compact. Much to my suprise, my phone rang within three minutes of me sending the email! He walked me through the options...
  5. Staccato/STI/2011
    Don't know if that's considered a 2011 or a double stack 1911 (to be honest, don't know the difference) but it looks super nice. I'm in the market for a 2011 so this really appealed to me. Not downplaying ACW at all, but what more does it offer than compared to a staccato? It's about 2x more so...

    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

    I have decided I want a 5" gun again. Had a few nice ones several years ago, however, the costs of a much needed divorce demanded their sale. No problem, best most expensive thing I have ever done. So now 8 years later, I find myself wanting to rebuild my 1911 inventory. Kept my 2006 Kobra...

    Fellow junkies, I’m in love with the ACW Prime Elite in charcoal blue but realize finding one is going to be a challenge, especially if I want one that is unfired. Knowing that Turnbull did the charcoal blueing, I’ve turned my sights to Turnbull to create a custom for me from the ground-up...

    I’m looking at purchasing at CZ Parrot, anyone shoot one and if so what are your thoughts on it. I did some reading up on it and it seems like a great target gun.

    I have some questions about Guncrafter. My LGS brought up Guncrafter as an option for my first 1911. 1. Does anyone have experience with Guncrafter costumer service? 2. How does the philosophy, build quality and value compare to WC, EB, ACW and LB? I know everyone will them considered higher...

    Where does Alchemy source their 1911 frames and slides? Thanks

    Already made a thread on this! Tried adding up the responses but it’s pretty long so I am making a poll and whichever wins takes the cake! Long story short, ordered my Nighthawk Agent 2 which will be finished by April and have enough funds for one more semi custom 1911. I will eventually get all...

    Hello my beautiful 1911 Addicts! Been blessed with extra funds to play with! Tax Returns, Deployment Money etc. Already ordered my dream 1911 (Nighthawk Agent 2) and it will be finished by April! I’m looking at three others to knock off my list also and can only choose one more for the time...

    Fellow Addicts, As mentioned in my post When Life Gives You Lemons… I’ll be listing over a dozen pistols for your consideration. Third up is an Alchemy Custom Weaponry Brimstone chambered in 9mm. NOTE: This model now goes by the name of the Prime Compact (link to ACW site here). I purchased...

    So after much anticapted wait I received the email that my ACW was ready to ship! Placed the order in late Sept of last year. Really cannot express how well it came out! Specs are as follows. I can't believe the lockup and the the checkering! Seriously some of the best I've felt! Prime Elite...

    Ordered in February (before most recent ACW price increase) and picked up from my FFL 8/19/2021. Serial#770, a very recent build and maybe one of the last 1" ACW guns, the option is no longer available on their site. Got antsy waiting, I purchased serial#124 a couple months back. I'd like to...

    Potentially a dumb question but can’t find answers or photos on the alchemy website. So for any alchemy 9mm owners, are their 9 barrels fully supported or traditional 1911 barrels. I saw a guy post his alchemy 9 one time and it had a non supported 9 barrel. I don’t like that for 9’s. Much...
