    I have my dad's old Colt 1911 from the 1940's which is my safe queen family heirloom. I have 2 Sig 1911 platform pistols which are my EDC. I have been looking at a few of SA 1911's What is y'alls opinion on them? The prices seem quite reasonable.

    Does someone have a Vigil they can report on? Especially if it's a commander.

    As I've said before on the forum I am limiting myself to purchasing two pistols in 2018: my 9mm range/training toy (getting a Sig Legion SAO), and I've been thinking the STI Costa VIP. The Legion should be here this week and I am going to be listing something out of my collection soon, along...

    Since my Dan Wesson has the dreaded "horny safety," I have decided to replace it and (hopefully) save the webbing between my thumb and index finger. So far, I have narrowed my options to the following models from Wilson Combat. I am already leaning toward one over the other, but I also wanted...

    I am going to order another 1911 in January. I am really tempted to get a 5" 10mm gun. The thing that concerns me is another caliber to buy and an expensive one at that. I shoot quite a bit and don't want to limit my shooting of the new gun due to ammo cost. I do not reload and don't see myself...

    If the SHTF, would you rather have 10-22 or a Marlin bolt action 22 WMR with a scope? Ammo is not a question.

    My Harrison Designs HD-300 groove grips came in today. I am thinking of putting them on one of my Guncrafter twins just to differentiate it from it"s twin a bit. Which grip do you prefer, the shredder grips (which I love and give an excellent purchase) or the HD's which feel like they give a...

    I recently bought a used SR1911, was pretty reasonable at 499. Its the stainless full size version. But the pricetag made me buy it. Also I live in Prescott Valley and pass the Ruger plant twice a day on way to work, and have two relatives who work there.

    I took my new 1911 to a local gunsmith who has done small stuff for me in the past. A local gun store had recommended him. I took him my new ss 45 along with grip safety, trigger and hammer, to install same and grind to fit and matte finish to match matte part of gun. He quoted $250 and 4-6...

    I've heard good things about the HS pistols (older Ones from the old factory up east). What do you all think of Duramatics and Sport Kings as nice shooters?

    Okay oh wise and knowledgeable 1911 addicts let's hear your who's and your why's. Keep it to just these three custom builders Derr precision-Jason Burton-Evolution armory. If you were going to have a custom gun built who would you use and why. If you have a gun from any of these shops that...

    Opinions on Mecgar 9mm magazines? 10 round in Dan Wesson Specialist 9mm? Ok for idpa uses?

    So I'm curious to see what everybody's preferred shooting stance and grip is for unsupported standing with a 1911 (any handgun really). I figure this will be pretty interesting and will depend on where you received your training but very curious!
