    Starting a new pole. As an advid ACW and Cabot collector, the one size that is missing in their lines is an Officer sized 1911. Is there anyone else on this forum that would purchase an Officer's 1911 if ACW or Cabot of available? I am different though that I would still want the slide/frame...

    So, after harrassing Bob & Scotty at NHC with loads of questions and prevarications, I finally placed my order for a NHC Officer last month. So far as I know, due to the good folks at Nighthawk being either extremely accommodating or, more likely, willing to do just about anything to put a stop...

    My fellow addicts: I'm absolutely stoked, and hope I can find ways to make the next year and a half bearable! This decision has been a long time coming. I've owned a good number of 1911's and, with the exception of some cheap Govt's at the very beginning, I've kept almost exclusively to...
  4. 1911 Gunsmithing
    So I've been nursing this idea of a full custom for years now... I'm still a ways away from really being able to afford the kind of job I'm thinking about, but this might be the year I finally realize my dream. My question is this: Is it possible to take a Bushing slide from a decent...

    I picked up a decent Colt Compact because I’ve always wanted a “Heat” gun close to the one Pacino’s character used. I took it to the range for the first time and I quickly discovered it’s going to need some work to be a capable carry gun. For one, the front sight flew off - no big deal, I...

    Found something "I need" so I'm putting this up for sale. Bought it two years ago new old stock and have put under 250 rounds thru it. Thought it would be my EDC but I find myself carrying a commander every day. I've probably carried it a month total. All types of accurate, feels great in the...

    After good reports here, I recently picked up my first small 1911 - a used Colt Defender. It's not a 'newer' model, but rather has the two step rear sight (LMA?) - then again, with Colt I honestly think sights are whatever are in the parts bin. My question is do you users with Defenders prefer...

    Alright. So there I was at the LGS today after having spent some range time, and I went looking in their case, and they had a stainless Desert Eagle 1911U for just a hair over $800. And I'll admit I'm toying with the idea. Anyone have tale-of-the-tape on 'em? According to what I'm seeing on...

    Hey all. I was just looking around at some of the smaller sized 1911’s like the CCO, Officers, and the micro sized versions in 9mm when I came upon the SR1911 page on the RUGER site. They do make a few 1911’s that look good and would prolly make a great carry piece. I checked out the Officers...

    So I took receipt of, and shot, the most expensive handgun I have ever purchased today - a Nighthawk Custom Counselor 9mm 1911. The gun had been previously sold, then traded back unfired to the selling dealer. Call it NIB for all practical purposes. It was also my first long-distance purchase...

    I am looking to buy or trade for 1911 that has officer sized frame. That is a must but the slide can vary in length. I would prefer to keep it to Guncrafter industries, Wilson combat, and Alchemy Custom Weaponry It can be in .45 or 9mm but would also consider others. Let me know what you have...
