    Hello, my name is Lee and I'm a new addict. I have a thing for hi-cap, 9mm, and RDS. Not terribly new to the site, but since lurking has already impacted my financial future, I felt it was fine time to say hello! Came here looking for more info on a Staccato C2, ended up with a GI Hellcat X2...

    So I did a comparison of a GI Government. 45 versus the Alchemy Prime Elite .45 recently, and a bunch of salty old men got their mustaches ruffled when I declared both pistols to be excellent- but the Guncrafter overall a better pistol... but just barely. So don't tell anyone I'm going to...

    Well today was the first day shooting my newly "bubba'd" CBOB trigger job and I wanted to check the sights. The next step it's off to a local guy for a slide-top treatment and black oxide and I'll have my two/tone CBOB. The gun functioned fine, the trigger could be lighter but since this will...

    Some new/old Esmeralda shoes i had laying around for my yet to be fired frag-commander. Tomorrow she gets shot. I'll have to say the melonite on this has just another sparkle to make it different and I'm a HUGE Esmeralda fan.

    While custom options abound all around, Guncrafter and Alchemy offer far fewer base models than do the likes of Wilson or Nighthawk. IMHO, Guncrafter has earned itself a seat right alongside the very finest semi-custom builders have to offer these days... what sort of new BASE MODELS would you...

    Some times it is tough in choosing what to carry.

    I recently decided to thin my herd of polymer pistols and just focus on getting back into quality 1911's. I have two young children and honestly don't have as much time to shoot as I would like. I know I picked the worst time in the last ten years to do this due to the current political climate...

    So I have a Wilson LW Professional in 9mm. The prefect carry pistol right? But when I carry it I feel under gunned. What do I do? I grab a 1911 inf 45acp. Then I think I need a few more rounds and grab a Sig 365 or Glock 19 in 9mm and I'm ok. I think I need therapy, LOL.

    Preface: I am just an enthusiast. I'm not a HSLD Operator, I don't compete, I can't even shoot all that well - but I enjoy the hobby and I appreciate a finely build firearm as most of us do. So none of my posts will have targets or accuracy comparisons, because all of the pistols I'd...

    I just got a stainless Renaissance in the mail. It looks so much better in person, but I also am considering DLC for a premium refinish. I'd like it to be charcoal or a steel gray.. but my understanding is DLC (ionbond) is BLACK when oiled. I'd like the rust prevention and durability of...

    Setting: a not too distant future..... The minimum wage is $20/hr but a gallon of milk costs $10...... using certain words can result in jail time and poodle-ownership is mandatory... Politicians who've spent more $$ on cosmetic surgery than you spent on your house have not yet succeeded in...

    Wanted to share a bit of my joy (and relief) here with my fellow addicts. I've recently decided to rededicate myself to the 1911 platform, after years and years of owning only striker-fired Sig's. It was a tough decision... especially considering how much time and money I'd invested in training...

    Been wanting one of these for a while. Picked up a good deal on gunbroker. Being my first Guncrafter I was impressed with the finish, fit and lockup. Truly a functional Work of art. Will likely not be my last.

    Hey Addicts! Gonna go ahead and give thanks in advance for some opinions and experience here. Also, as I don't post here much, I'm going to give the following disclosures up -front; this post contains: First-World Problems, OCD idiocy, top-tier gun-snobbery. The Background: I have a little bit...

    @TRRK Trading - Rob was a pleasure to deal with. Gun shipped promptly and was as described. I live in a two horse town in the middle of nowhere. Rob worked the transfer with the sole gun store in my town so that it was seamless and required no effort on my part, which I very much appreciate...

    I am selling my 50 GI monolithic build. Gun is in mint condition and shoots ridiculously accurate. Target and everything included along with 500 rounds of 300 grain factory ammo. Great gun, wouldn't be selling except Rob has tempted me with something I want more. Asking 3500

    Is there an appropriate forum to ask for help pricing a couple of used 1911s?

    Well, after selling my government HC 38 super GI, I couldn't be with a Guncrafter in the collection and I had beat myself up over letting this Frag slip away a few months ago when it was posted so I hounded @Greg M. long and hard enough that he finally said I'll sell it just stop bothering me...
