    Trying to get back in the habit of shooting regularly. Went and shot a mixture of whitebox and my own lead reloads today. Took my colt scg and series 70 repro along with my evo from evolution armory. Really wanted to focus on the evo as the gold line site with the u notch rear sight still...

    I hit the gun range for the 1st time since February today. I have shot out in the pasture at metal plates and rocks and such but this was the first time shooting paper targets in a while. Took my new hard chrome Colt 1991 45, my Colt Special Combat Carry .45, Evolution Armory .45, and my 50 GI...

    As the title declares, I wanted to start a thread where we could compare our ultimate 1911 wish lists. I'm going to keep my list to 5, but I think for this thread the limit should be around 10. You can exceed that number if you like, but keep it to the 1911's that you truly must have (even if...

    I was finally able to pick up my 1st of 2 guncrafters I recently purchased. This one came from collectors firearms by way of their black friday sale. 20 percent off on one of these is a pretty good discount. When I checked out on that friday morning they had 2 Model 1 50 GIs for sale. Both...

    Took possession of my Evolution armory evo yesterday and it is nice nice nice! I haven't gotten a chance to shoot it yet, but it looks amazing. For all of you tight fit people, this thing is plenty tight. Only gun I have ever had to use a bushing wrench on. Will see how the accuracy is, it...

    I know I haven't even taken possession of my EVO .45 yet....it should be here next week hopefully. But if I love it as much as I expect to love it, I can foresee me getting another one in the not too distant future. The question is basically this--a long slide .45 to match the government .45...

    Just got some pics from Dave that my new toy is ready. Should have it paid off shortly. Can't wait to get it in my hands....

    So I have 2 guns that Dave has been connected to previously. A SCG he built when he was still at Colt and a Delta he modified for me 2 years back. Both great work. I have loved the look of Dave's EVO build on here, but that is a big step up in price for me from the pool I play in that...

    Gents, Just got this back from EA. It was a build from ACW that I got back literally right before Rob closed shop and moved on to Cabot. I wanted to try a few new things and also get some things tweaked on this build, and Dave took the gun in. Modified and installed a new extractor (it's a...

    I am placing my Evolution Armory EVO25 up for sale as my F150 is starting to have engine problems (276K miles!). As sad as it makes me, right now I need the truck more than I need this awesome pistol. This has been posted here before, and I purchased it from Texas Patriot. I have nothing but...

    Hello all, I recently picked up a beautiful 1911 from evolution armory, thanks to Mark at Texas Patriot Arms, and need some guidance. It has the Stan Chen magwell, and I am wondering where/who you would go to in order to have grips cut to fit this mag well. I have some Vz grips I want to use...

    It's been a long wait. But my Dan Wesson A2 as reworked by Evolution Armory finally arrived yesterday. I bought this gun from BBP about a year ago, on a whim, and had it shipped directly to EA. Since the A2 is Dan Wesson's take on a 'retro mod' style update of the classic A1, I figured it...

    for those who are wondering what happened with my cz 1911a1 order. Dave from Evolution Armory called to say he is getting it ready for me to play with. the order changed since I paid for the gun. Dave did the front strap checkering already we added the following to the order( as I...

    I just received this gun back today and it is gorgeous. However right now I need cash more than the gun. When I bought the gun the Novak sights and what looks like an Ed Brown grip safety were already on it. I sent it to Dave at Evolution Armory last year and asked to have the front strap...
