    So I bought a Les Baer thunder ranch special a bit ago that has the 1.5” @ 50yd garantee. Nice gun! So my question is since I’ve read on several locations now how Baers are not generally built to normal specs that make normal Gunsmithing and parts exchange not possible. I have changed the...

    OK, most know my limitations with tech, so no pics. And I know this thread is worthless without pitchers but... Bought the new Colt 1911C , love the throwback style and the almost pre70 rollmarks. Heres the catch on the left side of mine I roll marked "AUTOMATIC CALIBLR 45" and the second L...

    I have several Kimbers and Spingfields government models. What recoil springs do you folks recommend? I have over 2000 round count in all of them. No issues but thought I would get ahead of the maintenance game. I shoot medium reloads primarily. I am trying to install a 22# spring in my Kimber...

    we live in the Golden age of Guns. What is available today we couldnt dream of years ago.I well remember ,as I used to visit larger gun shops every weekend,the situation.

    I've decided a need a new 1911 government to add in my carry rotation, with that being said I can't decide if I want to go with a light rail or not. I'm looking at a Guncrafter Industries No Name. My main concern will be the extra weight for carry this will be carried IWB in either a TT or...

    Hi All, Yup, I'm new here. Been around guns my whole life, just not 1911's. So, being old school, and not having a smart phone to research anything, I bought a cheap 1911. I love pricey guns like we all do, but sometimes just a plain jane is all you need. My question is: I bought a Regent R100...

    I hope it's not in poor taste to talk about material things and God at the same time. My wife and I are going to the range tonight so I was loading up the range bag. I was trying to select a 1911 to take along with a couple of other guns my wife is learning to use. The process of choosing a 1911...

    I'm just a wanna be BE shooter, my shooting experience comes from the CMP/NRA Service Rifle world. I'm sure I'm behind the times too many in this area, but the dumb question is still the question that's unasked so here it is, my question has too do with barrel twist rates. With all the carefull...
