    During the lockdown/ C19 I thought I was going to have a lot more free time and decided to buy a build- it -yourself 2011 Slide/Frame/barrel kit from L10 now Rogue Tac. The goal was to learn gunsmithing and a new hobby. Fast forward and I haven’t touched it due to work/family. Are there any...

    Disclaimer, Some of these pictures are quite old and the quality sucks! Damn flip phones. My favorite 1911 is my first 1911. Back sometime in the late 1990's I turned 21 years old. Shortly afterwards I purchased my first hangun, a Springfield Armory 1911 Mil-spec. When I went to the gun...

    For those not aware, Richard is customizing pistols again. He’s got an apprentice, Henry, and together they are building custom 1911’s at the Heinie shop once again. They’ve got some pistols ready for sale, but will also do a custom build for you. Have a look. https://www.heinie.com/pistolsmithing/

    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...

    Okay, I know I will never be lucky enough to have the god Chuck Rogers build me a pistol, I really want golf ball treatment on my pistol. Is there any other smith I can have build a full house custom with the golf ball stippling on the front strap and Magwell that would be similar? I don't think...

    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
