    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...

    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...

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...

    I'm not usually willing to be a guinea pig but the price on this gun was too good to pass up even though there is almost no data or info out there on them. It is a Bul SAS II Tactical Carry Government, yes the name is ridiculously long, in .45ACP, it's made in Israel by Bul Armory. They make...

    I'm looking to purchase my 1st 1911. I have 95% settled on an Alchemy, as I just love the classic look of the gun, and sounds like its a great company. It also fits the price point, as I'm wanting to stay under $3,000. I'm also looking to carry this gun, which will also be new for me. I'm a big...

    Most guns come and go, but I sometimes find myself getting nostalgic about some of the guns that I have bought - the Sig P232 (all variations - a real love/hate affair), my first Colt Defender, the older Colt CCO, and this sucker. Picked this up about 10 years ago in multi-gun buy, and while I...
