    Hit the range today for 150rds of 230gr .456acp ball & hollow point. Mostly ran 'em fast & furious. Slowed up for a couple mags with each. 15yds, standing, both paws on gun, eyesight screaming for corrective lenses, yet I keep putting them off. Tried contacts....nope. Can't do...

    I'd prefer a magwell, but curious to see whatever's out there. Thanks for your time.

    Hello there, I’m getting ready to search for a used ACW commander and I intend to compete with it, so I’ll need a magwell. I don’t expect to find one in my price range which has a magwell from the factory, so I’m wondering what my best aftermarket options are. As I understand it, the Chen SI...

    I’m split between being obsessed and missing 1911s (haven’t had one since my Garthwaite sold years ago) and wanting one and thing 2-4K is ridiculous money to spend on a handgun. I’ve been shooting 2.0 m&P in 8mm lately with 10rd mags. I know there are options here like Springfield or colts and I...

    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...

    Somehow missed the Custom Carry 9mm with Chen / EGW parts last year. Much prefer the look without the FCS, but seems like that would be a pipe dream finding one at this point. How would something like this compare an offering from Alchemy? Same league or not even close?

    Hi everyone, recently joined the forum to get more insight on the 1911 as I am looking to purchase a high-end gun ($4K budget). This forum has been an enormous wealth of knowledge as I've dug deeper, but now I feel even further from being able to make my decision on which brand/gun to purchase...

    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 ...

    https://alchemy1911.com/quantico-hicap/ Got the email yesterday. Looks AWESOME!!!! I've tried 2011s on 3 or 4 separate occasions and always ended selling them off. This one sure is jaw dropping though...

    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...

    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.
