    Got this this morning. Guns super tight and right. Really digging the bead blast finish too. Believe these were custom shop guns and it definitely feels like it’s had more hands on it than just simple assembly line work. I remember when these came out and most I saw were Govt size ones. Never...

    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...

    Kicking off the requested “Guns of Gunsite” Old school thread which I hope Addicts find interesting from a historical standpoint, as well as post some pics of their guns including all the 1911 GSP and 1911 variations that were built within the Gunsite Gunsmithery (Orange, Grey, and current) as...

    Go to Gunsite Academy. The quality of instruction, facilities, and location are World class. I just finished the Defensive Pistol 250 course at Gunsite. I'm covered in sweat and dust, my hands are blistered, and I'm grining from ear to ear. I've had the honor of learning from men who have been...

    Family has deep roots in Arizona (and that land before they called it Arizona). Growing up I'd spend weekends working my dad's tables at gun shows. By that time my favorite pistol was a 1911, which my dad would let me end a range session by helping me grip his Colt and let one or two rounds off...

    Would love to find a Yost Gunsite up — commander/CCO preferred but gov/OACP too. Missed a few because of bad timing in the past so am putting it out there. Prefer checkered front strap. Cash buyer or happy to do a little addict swapping.

    Following up on my introduction post about my vintage Yost Gunsite pistol https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/old-school-fighting-pistol-my-yost-built-gunsite-1911.63279/...... I thought I’d show you the Gunsite Gunsmithery catalog from 1993 which I saved; this is from the Ted Yost (of Estate...

    I've been thinking about replacing my current Springfield Combat with something else. There's nothing wrong with the Springer I've just figured out that I prefer 1911's without rails. The current Gunsight Government model (the standard not the anniversary model) looks like a really nice...

    I had been considering LW Commander for some time as a carry piece. I have a LB Commanche that I like a lot, but a lighter Commander in .45 was definitely in the plan. I know there are some nice ones out there, but I wanted a Colt. I am no company's fan boy and have several from Colt, DW, and...

    This an earlier made Gunsite GSP pistol. From the late 80's I believe. Built on a Springfield Armory 1911 pistol by the gunsmiths at Gunsite to Col. Jeff Cooper's specifications. It has a fitted solid barrel bushing, throated polished barrel, solid trigger with trigger job, high visibility...
