    Got the new to me Colt S70 that I bought from ChuckC and I am smitten. This gun looks right, feels right, and shoots right. Even though it had some very nice double diamonds on it I swapped them out for a set of American holly grips DukeSoprano had made for me a while back and with the...

    Gents, I have started to collect parts and pieces for my next Phineas C. Zoid build. I have a nice vintage Colt slide on which I need to upgrade the sights. On Zoid-01, I used Harrison's Retro U-Notch. This didn't require cutting the slide, which was pretty convenient. Is there anything...

    I've been kicking the idea of a retro/vintage/'60s style build for a while and have decided that it's time to buy my base gun. I want to use a 1911 for it, not an A1. I've already got a new Turnbull Remington UMC 1911 but I don't want to use it for this project, I want it to be a Colt. That's...
