  1. General 1911 talk
    Hey folks…Greetings and Happy New Year to all. I’m looking for a base 1911 to run through a custom shop and make my own. I’m thinking I can’t go wrong with Colt. Should I be looking for a new series 70 or is there a better starting point? Other than Colt? Appreciate the wealth of knowledge...

    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...

    I bought this Norinco 1911 with the intent of using it for a custom build, but decided to go with a 9mm instead. It comes with the box, manual, and two magazines. I have not fired it and don't know the round count, but it doesn't appear to have been fired much at all. $550 shipped CONUS, please...
