    I am thinking about ordering a new pistol with a blued finish. I own a Wilson with the Armor-Tuff finish and it is a sweet 1911. However, I hear an Alchemy pistol is comparable. Looking at pics on their respective websites the Alchemy blue looks better than the Wilson blue to me (bluish tint...

    I was scrolling thru a local forum and a guy had an ACW 9mm Brimstone for sale. I have convinced myself sometime back that I want an ACW however I want a full size frame Classic Carry. I messaged him and let him know I was not a buyer that I just wanted to see it. He agreed to meet me and show...

    So I did a comparison of a GI Government. 45 versus the Alchemy Prime Elite .45 recently, and a bunch of salty old men got their mustaches ruffled when I declared both pistols to be excellent- but the Guncrafter overall a better pistol... but just barely. So don't tell anyone I'm going to...

    Hello all, I'm new here but I've been reading and watching lots of videos about 1911's and I'm pretty sold on getting one. Not interested in polymer guns anymore. So I'm here seeking some advice/opinions. There's 3 that seem to catch my eye, with one being different than the other 2. 1 ...

    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...

    I recently ordered an Alchemy Prime and was wondering which magazines are supplied and what you guys are running in your Primes . I’m probably gonna order a few more Tripp cobra 7 rounders and maybe some Wilson 47 7 rounders.

    I'm looking to purchase my 1st 1911. I have 95% settled on an Alchemy, as I just love the classic look of the gun, and sounds like its a great company. It also fits the price point, as I'm wanting to stay under $3,000. I'm also looking to carry this gun, which will also be new for me. I'm a big...

    Maybe I have been living under a rock... however I just found out Alchemy Custom Weaponry has a channel on YouTube... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHRKWmkpzVsKX4ovjA7_Zbg I am guessing it is not well known, as they only have 257 subs. Just watched all of the videos... it is pretty awesome...

    Years ago I wanted to send Rob my Les Baer, sadly wasn't able to at the time but have always admired his work. Found out I'm about to be a dad and got the green light to make a last nice purchase for myself in a while, so I decided to go for a ACW Prime Elite Hard Chrome. I am still deciding...

    Took the Alchemy Prime out. Put 100 rounds at 50 feet, not too bad for 50 year old eyes.

    Picked up my Prime thursday evening and tomorrow will be range day. I'll let you guys know how it goes. So far I'll say that im impressed but what I have.

    Maybe Rob has a link that is not facebook?

    I noticed George has several Alchemy Custom Weaponry Prime models in stock now. I've never heard of them and don't see a lot about them on the forums. What are they all about? Any good? FC
