Picked this up yesterday as a new nightstand gun. Slapped a TRL-1HL on her this morning. Heavy but I don't plan on carrying her so I don't care. Trigger consistently at 5 pounds 4 ounces.
Things I like:
It's CA legal
The cut on the side, not really a ball cut but whatever.
Had a BLAST today shooting our first outdoor match of 2018. It was great minus the rain and it was a little cooler than I thought it was going to be but all in all, a great match. Came in first in Single Stack so not a horrible day of shooting.
My first Dan Wesson, a Valkyrie in 9mm, was delivered yesterday. I have moved from lust to love. :)
Did an odd thing and read the manual which has led to a question. DW recommends Kroil as other solvents can mess with the Duty Finnish. They also say to not use Rem oil, CLP, or Hoppe's elite on...
1. Wow, silky smooth.
2. FFL asked me if I wanted my money back.
3. Doesn't care for Wilson magazines, doesn't like McCormicks at all.
4. If I could still see well enough, this could have been a bullseye comp gun out of the box.
5 Ran great with Check-Mate, ACT, GI surplus, and of course the...
A good friend of mine asked me to teach his 13 year old boy to shoot with all of the associated safety rules, maintenance and primary marksmanship skills.
So I know this is a 1911 forum but I am open to any recommendation. What I am looking for:
Easy slide action and locking...
Popped my Wilson cherry finally.
Exactly as I would have ordered it minus the naked slide. To have it NIB within 4 days of having the funds...worth letting it say WC on the slide.
Night sights, 2 extra mags, small backstrap, medium trigger, cherry grips.
I'm in love. Can't shoot her today...
200 grain SWC .452 dia
Flare was .488 OD
For powder I have Bullseye, Unique and Win 231
I have not tried to figure out the powder as of yet.
These feed through my 1911s great by hand
Next is .38 Special
158 gr SWC .358 Dia.
When I flared...
First post thread contribution to the forum. Here goes...
Earlier today I was thinking back to my first 1911 and wondering why on earth I sold it.
It was a Springfield Armory 1911-A1 that I got for $479 in 2003. Pretty good price. It was the first pistol I ever bought. Come to think of it...
Okay so here is the deal, I am just getting ready to start up a mill I purchased a few months ago. I have several blocks of steel, plates etc... to practice on but, nothing works like the real thing. So, I am looking for a beater an older Taurus 1911, a star model, and old GI Remington something...
Last week I was at my LGS and found this police trade in P226R in .357 Sig. Its got a German made frame and is agency marked on top of the slide "City of Burton Police" with three magazines included. I didn't really need it as I've already got a P226R 9mm but I'm curious about the caliber and...
I was picking up my Wilson Super Sniper the other day and my LGS had the Saint pistol in. Really not my thing, but figured what the heck. I put on a set of YHM iron sights that I had laying around. So today I took it out with my Xtac Elite 9mm. I really didn't expect much from it. After a...
ATTENTION ALL MILITARY,LEO, and FIRST RESPONDERS. Accuracy X is giving an amazing 25% of any pro line series gun. I can assure you this never happens. These are some of the best shooting guns made. Just thought I would let you know. I am shooting wth the owner at NC state championship today.
I just received a package today from a GB seller. The item was advertised as follows . . . . (click on the images to enlarge and read)
The description read as follows . . . . .
What I received is as follows:
Correct slide w/both front and rear sights
Correct barrel w/link and...
A friend of mine gave this to me cause he "had to many holsters" I'm like OK :)
It's a work of art, much nicer than any of my Galco's but I guess it costs a few bucks more. It's currently housing my Kimber Ultra CDP II 9mm
Hillsdale gun. Good price. Will take a couple weeks to get paid for and get here. Can't wait. My club's new Ransom Rest is supposed to be at my house by Friday. May get it installed Saturday and then...I'll have to wait on this gun for another week. Ugh.
as the thread says and in no big hurry to get the one for me.
Have a thousand saved now and willing to save more to get what I want. As of now I'm considering a fusion cco made with some upgrades, ruger sr1911 commander and a Springfield range officer with the funds I have now.
The more I...
I thought I'd reach out and ask some advice on a couple revolvers I'm looking at and being a complete newbie in the wheel gun department I've been a little overwhelmed by all the different models and frame designations.
What I'm looking for is primarily something I can carry in the...
I like to have a variety of pistols, owning multiples of the same gun didn't make sense for me. In my upcoming 6 day CSAT Tactical Pistol & Rifle Instructor Course I'll be required to test out and meet their Standards. If you can't pass them you don't graduate.
With all the time and money...
