    Hey everyone, I usually lurk in the classified if I need something, and don’t participate in general discussion on a weekly basis. However, I just finished up an extended range session with my Prime 45. I bought it brand new a while back. It’s an early run, number 14. I have to say, it’s my...

    Anyone own one of these and shot it hard? Curious about first hand reviews, a friend has one with 50 rounds through it that he is considering passing along to me. This being Kalifornia this is the first guncrafter I will have a chance to look at / handle.

    This is a more serious review than the last video I posted a link for. The reviewer makes a lil mistake in the video regarding trigger weight, but otherwise a good review I think.

    Picked up an STI Staccato C last night and put the first 100 rounds through it today. STI says it’s “The World’s Best Shooting Carry Gun”, and they may just be on to something. Recoil and muzzle rise were surprisingly mild and the gun fed everything I gave it from a wide variety of 1911 Compact...

    so I bought my first 1911 and love it. So now I’m addicted and interested in buying some more for my collection. I ran across some Para Elite and Expert at my LG. They are on sale ranging from $449 - $599. I can not find a lot of reviews on these guys, so I’m turning to you guys. Good 1911’s...

    First off, a disclaimer. I am a 1911 guy. I did NOT purchase this firearm as some level of "modern" 1911 replacement or otherwise. I am perfectly happy with my S.A. Elite Operator, Colt Delta Elite, and 2 Dan Wessons to serve in that capacity. Simply stated, I was interested in looking at...

    Since today is JMB's Birthday, that means I've spent the last year with you guys. I wanted to take a moment to break down what I've gleaned from this wonderful place over the past year. 1911's are as various as women. A DW is the best value. Period. @limbkiller tells a good joke, hosts a...

    I Have been using FP10 and Wilson Ultima Lube for a couple years now and recently came across Gunfighter gun oil and Also noticed a few top smiths were using it. Wanted to let everyone Know it’s out there and is an excellent product. I have made the switch to this oil. It is formulated and made...
  10. Wilson Combat
    It’s been a while since I ordered mine, it finally came in last month. I spec’d it out as the EDC-9 compact with an alloy frame and light rail. I got mine with non adjustable tritium night sights and opted for a non-ambidextrous thumb safety. I finally got through the recommended 200 round...

    I have been thru countless holsters, none of which ever really had it all. Either they were comfortable and had issues with the draw, or they were uncomfortable and easy to draw from, or somewhere in the middle of those combinations. I was recently looking for a holster to accommodate my...

    Clean, simple, classy. Just took delivery of a New DW A2. and I have to say what an awesome pistol 100 rounds of 230 ball down range no hiccups sweet shooter. Of course pic to follow The A2 is clean no frills and just classy. Thinking Pachmayr signature Grips, and maybe a change of sights...

    I received last week the Guncrafter No Name I had been awaiting for several months. Full size, bobtail, 9mm, stainless steel. My first glimpse of it was auditory... I was standing just outside the room where they were checking new arrivals, when someone in there racked a slide - and I...
