    This Volkmann Signature 9mm made its way here from @TXP8RIOT and it is amazing! I have to thank Mark for contacting his client who accepted my offer. The finish on this gun equals anything I have/had. They said it hadn't been fired.... hell, I don't think it had even been handled. The 3 mags...
  2. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Qualifier: More like Gunjonesing than Gunsmithing (but they don't have a forum for that) A few months ago I finished Self Build #8. (I thought) It was an older Colt slide and barrel assembly That was pretty pitted but re-blued. I thought it made a pretty fun build that may have been done by...

    Beautiful Custom Colt Commander .45 by Steve Owens. This was a very tough decision for me to possibly let this go. My aging & aching hands & wrists just don't enjoy shooting .45 caliber commander size guns. For those who would like a top notch custom build with some "no cookie cutter" features...

    I made another stop & shop at Gunners the other day now that I know you have to snag some of his stuff right after he puts it on his website. They showed up today as it seems he ships during the middle of the night. These are some of Gene's Aqua Blue Mammoth crosscut ivory. I think they go...
