    Hello Fellow Addicts, After much deliberation, soul searching, and mixed feelings on this, I am going to sell off all but a handful of guns. I have some debt that is unrelated to firearms, and it would be much smarter to pay this debt off rather than have these just sit in my safe unused. I...

    Happy Thanksgiving fellow addicts! I had this up for sale for a few days and pulled it thinking that I’d have regrets, as it’s a real beauty (albeit a little chubby). The only reason that I’m selling her is to fund a new build. I have for sale a brand new & unfired Les Baer Premier II...

    I’ve decided to go with the Staccato XC, and was wondering where is the best place for hard chrome coating? I want it to look like the Omni that is pictured. Thanks for the help.

    I've been searching for a GI for the collection, I had to previously and sold both as I was never crazy about the Melonite finish, I just like a gun a little more visually pleasing and had enough "black" guns. When this came up it was a quick must have and Tyler was a breeze to deal with...

    I have a hard chromed Commander and put the slide stop back in. Didn’t press on it. Didn’t put any pressure on it. Rotated it up by lifting it with one finger and that’s all it took. It just makes me sick. Tried emailing Metaloy but their email bounced back. They don’t take phone calls...

    I’d like to refinish a HK P7, and I’m torn between hard chrome and NP3. I really like the advantages of NP3, but also like the hardness and looks of HC... Anyway, my question is: I’ve read several comments where owners were saying that NP3 does make things slippery when you try to grab them. A...

    Hello all. I picked this up not too long ago and had planned on keeping it; however I was doing a little car racing at the WannaGoFast 1/2 mile event in Frech Lick, IN this weekend and it appears going close to 160mph in a standing half mile causes damage to a stock transmission. I suppose...

    This is a really cool 1911 that Fusion just did for a Sheriff's Department in NY. I wanted to show the finish that was done on this pistol because it came out so well. It is a hard chrome finishing, much more durable then the high polished chrome look and in my opinion a better look. The hard...
