    I have this old Government Model that I have been thinking about doing something a little special to. Option 1. Leave it as is but I really don’t enjoy shooting a 45 without a flared ejection port. On the other hand it’s old school cool. Option 2. Set it up as a semi-BBQ gun, flared port...

    Another Springer Custom from my collection is a classic blend of form and function, and this beauty is the mother of all tack drivers. You won’t find a more accurate platform than a high end 9mm longslide, as evidenced by the test target shown below: better than 1.5” groups at 50 yards! This...

    I'm based out of California so I cannot purchase a 9mm or 10mm Nighthawk unless it's a private party transfer. IF someone in California is looking to sell one, please contact me.

    Hi guys, I touched on this in another thread, but are there any quality holsters that have Kydex to secure the slide and leather for the rest of the holster? Would that even work properly? I haven’t seen anything from reputable companies, and definitely not for the guns I want it for. (EDC X9S...

    I have a EVO by Dave at Evolution Armory and am currently waiting on a build from Ted Yost. The EVO has been shot plenty and will be shot plenty more. Same with the Yost. Neither was purchased to be put in a case and looked at or for some future ROI. Now my question is this though, some...

    Evening folks! I hope everyone is doing well! I've been out of the game for a while and am starting plans to get together a 'beater' 1911 (just lots of use, very simple) that won't require a ton of gunsmith work. Because I don't know if factory work is an option, I posted here. If it fits...

    I saw a guy posting a MARS 1918 but didn't want to ask in his for sale thread; Is Steve at MARS Armament still in business? I tried contacting him right after the holiday, then again in February and then at the end of April without any luck. I have a Series 70 Colt that I want some work done...

    Anyone know the status of Rogers? Ive been keeping an eye on his website and he's been saying he has no room for work for years now. Is he still in business and building guns or did he pull the pin? His builds have always been a dream of mine

    Okay, I am a fanboy of old/new Winchester/Miroku rifles. But these should be VERY special by the time I receive the .45 Colt Deluxe Octagon and the .357 Magnum Deluxe Octagon. Winchester Deluxe Octagons are special They were last produced in 2003 & 2010. You usually can't find these rifles...

    Alright everyone, I want you all to help me out here. I snagged a Colt XSE Government model in 45 ACP with the "100 years of service" rollmarks and the plan is to save up and send it off to the Wilson Combat custom shop.
