    Hello all - Longtime shooter, longtime SiG Fanboy, recently converted back to 1911's for my EDC. (if you're impatient, skip to paragraph #4) So, by way of introduction, I'm no pro-shooter. I am, however, and active enough shooter to know I get better accuracy (and more fun) beyond 25" with...

    Step one buy a base gun. I chose the CZ 1911 A1. I'm a Dan Wesson fan. Plus the plan was a run of only 1000 of these guns. Keep the frame and slide. Replace the rest of the parts. With the parts of your choice. These were mine. In random order... Kart barrel Harrison true radius ignition...

    Okay, still not sure about this one...I didnt think I would ever sell this, but thinking about going a different route... I love this pistol, but I feel it is time for it to go to a better home.

    This is my first full custom 1911, built from the ground up by APG member Dave Laubert of Defensive Creations. I know a lot of people in the custom gun world don’t like the lightening cuts, and generally I don’t either, but I like the cuts on the S&W Performance Center models and thought they...

    Looking at a few different makers to do a 38 super build, but I guess it doesn't hurt to see if anyone is wanting to part with one first. So................... Caliber MUST be 38 Super NO 5 inch guns - Must be Commander length 4.25" (possibly would consider shorter) Bobtail is fine CCO is also...

    I was at JOJOs Gunworks in Southington CT today and seen this in the case. Figured you guys might like it fully engraved build on one of Jojos frame and slide sets. Probably the nicest engravings I have seen in person. And doesn't have a finish on it yet still in the white.
