  1. 1911 Gunsmithing
    So I've been trolling classifieds and gunbroker lately, looking for a quality 4" 1911 in 9mm with a fullsize/commander frame. Seems Wilson Combat is the only company that regularly offers this sort of small slide / large frame format, specifically in their "Professional" series. To my knowledge...

    I saw a photo somewhere that of course I now can’t find of “Custom by Ed Brown” in attractive block lettering on the right dustcover, instead of that silly script on the slide. Does anyone have this option? Can you post a photo? Is it an up charge? Thanks!

    Looking to get a clean 1911 SS slide and options on CNC engraving. The cheapest I could think of is to buy a clean TISAS 1911 SS and get the slide engraved. Anyone done that, any ideas on the slides used, cost, and some good gun slide CNC engraving shops, or gunsmiths? Also, please share pics...

    Anybody got any recommendations for an engraver who can do the full package deal; ornate filigree, initials in monogram, etc? I've seen some beautifully engraved 1911s on the forum, so I figure I'd ask here. Having said that, it's not for a 1911, but for a Lie Nielsen hand-plane I plan on...

    I was revisiting this project this morning, and it occurred to me that I didn't ever post the finished product here. This was one of my last projects at GI. Built completely on speculation, and sold for $10k before the graver even started scraping metal. I am very proud of this one. From...

    Hey addicts, I’m getting a custom 1911 build on a Colt commander, it’s a full overhaul, so I’m pretty much just keeping the slide and frame. I’ve requested to get my initials engraved on the gun, is this a good idea/ common practice or will it affect the value of the gun if I choose to sell it...

    I don't know how to say this....but, why send out a factory Colt to get engraved...? I mean, engraving ain't cheap. I've seen a couple engraved Colts and even some Rock Islands fully engraved. Like, Wow. I mean you're spending more on the engraving than the actual pistol. I dunno maybe its just...

    After David Clevinger finished his time consuming hand engraving. The pistol was sent to a large highly reputable finishing/restoration outfit in the Midwest because I wanted to go with a true carbona finish. The answer came back, sorry we are too backed up on carbona and we are not accepting...

    Back in 2014 I thought about getting a carry gun and after reading lots of reviews I decided to get the Colt TALO Concealed Carry Government. It seemed like it was well put together and had features that I liked. I picked up one of the original TALO pistols from Tombstone Tactical. As you can...
