    I have some questions about Guncrafter. My LGS brought up Guncrafter as an option for my first 1911. 1. Does anyone have experience with Guncrafter costumer service? 2. How does the philosophy, build quality and value compare to WC, EB, ACW and LB? I know everyone will them considered higher...

    I am seeking a Les Baer, Wilson Combat or Ed Brown, 1911, full size. New or lightly used. Even if you don’t have one, any tips on where I can look would be appreciated. I tried Smitty’s in De Soto. Cabela’s gun library has zero.

    Hello everyone. I have a Valtro 1998A1 pistol that has been in storage since 2003. I am the original owner and it had less than 1,500 shots. Can anyone kindly let me know what kind of price it is selling for nowadays? Thanks in advance.

    So I’ve been looking to get into the custom market for a while but could never pull the trigger (no pun intended). I’ve had Kimber and Colts I’ve sold and currently I have an AMT Longslide and a Colt Combat Elite 4.25”. I also have a custom Ed Brown I’ve ordered on the way in about 4-6 months. I...

    I have been wanting to pick one of these up. I really like the “stocky” look with the full length dust cover and the gun as a whole appeals to me. I have contacted Crazy John and the lead time right now is about 6 months. Does anyone have one and if so, provide thoughts on the performance of...

    Hi Everyone! Greetings from Oregon, I’m not entirely a new member here but I haven't been able to do really anything other than private message or like posts over the last year or so. Special thanks to @snwbrdr202 who I purchased a Les Baer Premier II Heavyweight from in November of 2020 (I had...

    I recently saw one of these for sale having never seen one before. They are quite the attractive pistol and was thinking one would eventually look good in my stable. Since I don’t have a 1911 in 9mm, this seems like a good choice for my first one. The thing, aside from being attractive to...

    I've been lurking for a few months now, decided it's time to say hi. I was introduced to this place, and my addiction to 1911's, by my physical trainer. We discovered a mutual interest in firearms, since then we have spent a lot of time lifting weights and talking about guns. Needless to say I...

    Hi folks, I took my new LB pistol to the range yesterday and ran the recommended 500 rounds through it. I always break my Baers in during one range session, and don't clean them during the process. When I'm done my hands are always full of sludge, which I call Baer paws. .

    Anyone put a Ed Brown slide stop in a Les Baer? Drop in fit? Work well? Any info would be great.

    I am considering buying a LB Monolith or Heavyweight Monolith from CJ. My question to any that have handled or shot both is what does the balance equate to? I shoot a lot of DA revolvers and am used to that feel is it similar to say an 8" full underlug, 6"? HW Mono feel like an 8" and the...

    I've been trying to get a hold of 1911 heaven for a couple of weeks now and no luck. Does anyone know what is going on with them? Seems like the website hasn't been updated since Feb 18th.

    I bought my first Baer around 2000. While I taught both my sons to first shoot a handgun with my late father's 1981 S&W 686 they both quickly progressed to being fans of the 1911s I shared with them. My older son, now an E7 Flight Medic and NCOIC of his unit of the National Guard (17 years in...
