    After seeing the Gunsite Lightweight commander on sale, Susan was kind enough to honor the sales price even weeks after the sale was over for when I had the funds to buy it. The box arrives at my FFL Wednesday, and I came down sick with what I hope isn’t Covid (I tested negative) so I haven’t...

    Being short on ammo I only had 3 boxes of syntech ammo, so I went thru a box of 50 out the back of my shop and fed the hungry little thing. Not a single hiccup or anything, really happy with it! I wasn’t shooting a proper “target” per ce but I learned not practicing my 1911 skills has my aim...

    Was out and about today and it’s been a while since I’ve seen anything besides kimber 1911’s in the LGS, when I came across a Colt 1911 Government classic. Being 799 basically MSRP, I picked it up. Got it home, stripped it down and removed grip panels etc, and I’m very happy with it. It’s been a...

    Hello Fellow Addicts, In this thread is my Dan Wesson Vigil 9mm 5". I bought this brand new in March 2019. It has exactly 140 rounds of Federal brass FMJ through it. **Full discloser - the first range trip I shot 20 rounds and had a few failures. The issue was related to the mag release and was...

    Hello Fellow Addicts, Continuing to attempt to downsize my collection, so I'm going to list my Ed Brown Alpha Elite 5" in 45 acp. I've never even fired this one, and I already know that I will regret selling it, but I simply need to be responsible and downsize my collection... It's had 10...

    I have this old Government Model that I have been thinking about doing something a little special to. Option 1. Leave it as is but I really don’t enjoy shooting a 45 without a flared ejection port. On the other hand it’s old school cool. Option 2. Set it up as a semi-BBQ gun, flared port...

    Came across an "Accu-Match International" comped 1911 Government pistol for sale locally. My Google schwei is not strong on this one. Cannot find really anything about the builder, parts used, current value. I know that the builder started the company in Mesa, AZ in 1996. Owner/builder died 6...

    I've reached the realization that this is not the best base gun for the end-result build that I want to achieve so I'm putting it up for sale. This is a blued Colt XSE Government model in .45 ACP with a "100 Years of Service" rollmark on the slide. It also has a 14k gold bead installed in the...
