    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...

    I recently picked this one up and it surpasses my expectations by quite a bit. I’ve got two other nice GIs in the safe and 3 others that I’ve sold. They’ve all been really nice builds but this one is just different. The barrel lockup is the best I’ve seen with my own eyes and I’ve not got a...

    It may not 100% qualify as a "bargain" but for a GI with duel 9mm/38 super barrels it's not bad at all https://www.gunbroker.com/item/884476624

    Good evening gents! I’m having a hell of a time deciding between two builds: a chrome Baer Ultimate Master or a chrome Guncrafter No Name optioned nearly identically (no FCS, no magwell). This is such a first world problem, but a massive purchase for me at this time nonetheless. I’ve been...

    Well, I'm just not a Government guy and I would like to order a HC ACW Carry so it make sense that this goes up. I paid well over $4,000 for this spectacular hard-chrome'd 1911 and it's perfect in everyway, maybe 6-8 magazines through it in one range session and it's been in the safe ever...

    Well... I'm trying to sell a few guns to restore my bank account after my wedding & honeymoon expenses!! So....in this thread I have up for sale: My excellent condition Guncrafter Front Sight Model. It's a catch and release for me, I haven't fired it, or even stripped it down. 2017 build, and...

    Here is a fine example of a No Name from 2012- please have a look at the pics and ask any questions It's in great shape, with a small mark on the lower part of the dustcover and another faint one on the slide- both are nitrided, so I'm guessing that something softer marked it, rather than it...

    I’m thinking of picking up a “nice” 1911 and trying to decide which route I want to go. It seems wilson and nighthawk are more production where the alchemy and guncrafter are full on custom builds. What are the advantages/disadvantages of production vs custom? Im not too concerned about lead...
