  1. Revolvers
    So I dip another toe into the waters of Revolvers. My last firearm venture was getting my first lever action rifle. Soooooooooooo .... it was only natural that I should find a Colt Python. (don't ask me what the corrilation of the two is other than they both are .357 Magnum) My FFL called and...

    A variety of items all came together today. The mailbox was a very happy place. Someone posted the other day (maybe @Whiten ?) that Harrison's had 20% off until midnight. Since the long lead items have already been ordered I figure it was a good time for details. I also received a small...

    Yep.... a "Full Monty!" This made its way from Mark (@TXP8RIOT ) to me today. Its my first experience with actually handling a piece of Bunker Arms hardware. I must say, I'm quite impressed with Brandan's work. There seems to be some nice little touches here and there that are subtle but...

    Dig Deep In The Safe Addicts!! I'm willing to pay a fair price (or trade) for a LNIB or Primo (dated slang) DW Valkyrie in 9mm, I actually prefer .38 super if there's one out there. I'm open to all but think one around 2015-19 would be great. Extra dollars if you have one that has been 9/.38...

    This Baer is well traveled but very lightly used. Its resembles a Foster Child going from home to home. I first got this gun from an ADDICT here with 50 rds. Down the tube. I just received it for the second time and I doubt that it has many more than a couple hundred through it now. It has...

    Disclaimer ** this post is NOT for true Pistol/Gun Smiths. ** This is more of a "where there's a will, there's a way" moment. Ok Addict... here's a Buster Smiffin story for you to have a chuckle over. I borrowed a .38 super barrel reamer from a fellow Addict. Unfortunately it was the older...

    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...
  8. 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...

    I currently have a few builds done by various gunsmiths. Some current, some have passed on. I have a couple more on books and am thinking of finding a smith that may be willing to take on my idea. Many smiths are not keen on the idea of straying from the traditional. I'm am presenting my vision...
  10. Rifles & Shotguns
    Let me first plead my ignorance about this subject. Story line: My grandson just entered Marine boot camp and will soon be entering the segment for learning this platform. His decision to forego his college education & scholarships and enlist came as a sudden surprise to the family. Being fully...

    I bought this Wilson Combat Compact New from a great forum member and asked Steve O @Integrity Arms to make it mine. And boy did he ever deliver. What a great experience. How often do you do a project and find that you have made a good friend. During the process it became apparent that Steve...

    Ask Mr. Wizard ............. What can you tell me about collet bushing & barrel sets? I received this beautiful Colt from @jaydoc yesterday. He told me he didn't think it had ever been fired and after taking it down I tend to agree with him. Who can shed some light on the barrel setup? I have...

    I'm looking to purchase a set of Les Baer era TRS double diamond grips with logo. If you have set, know where there's a set you can "acquire" :rolleyes: and would like to sell or trade. Send me a PM with pics. Thanks.

    I don't usually ask for opinions., Because a lot of them are like azz holes..... they stink! But here comes your chance to give one. I don't like the final results of my last self build so I'm doing a make-over. The frame is a JEM SS Bobtail set up for .45ACP. I'm going to order a Caspian...

    One Too Many... ( Did I really just say that?) :eek: I bought this from @Karl Beining in August for a potential build project. ( orig. post: https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/1973-colt-combat-commander-45-acp-clean.108091/ ) I also got a 1950 (Birth year) LW Commander in .38 super for the...

    Unfired SS VBob with a CC frame & controls by Tyler Gun Works. I purchased this new and sent the lower unit to Bobby Tyler for his SS Case Coloring. I realize that its not for everyone. (Just like having all my guns black is not for me) My opinion is that the VBob model was one of the best that...

    Ok........... so I may have made a mistake by selling all my LBs. (there......... I said it) I'm in the market for a lightly used or a not abused T.R.S. I'm not really set on getting a "like new in the box" one. I will consider .45 or 9 mm. I prefer to get one without FCS but that won't be a...

    When I first mentioned that I wanted to try my hand at building a 1911. @ZoidMeister showed me ZOIDS 1911. He was very helpful in getting started. I thought it would be appropriate to build one in that spirit. So..... Here is build #9 I got a unique-ish slide assembly from Steve O. Horse traded...

    So while the dinner is in the oven ..... and I have a cold one in hand with JW2 on the tube. The shootout in the tunnels where John is puttin em down like wetted candles. Mrs.C. makes a pretty logical observation. She notices all the bad guys are getting shot and says "well, they're just stupid...

    9 months & 4 days!! From conception to delivery... The long awaited arrival of my ACW Prime Elite .38 superb happened today. It was totally worth the wait.... After getting it home from the FFL and having a few minutes to kind of take it all in. I'm glad it worked out as it did. This gun...
