    Wondering if anyone has tried one yet? Trying to decide between Garrison and Ronin. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Picked up this holster worn 9mm Ronin for about 300 less than new one. Gun has some cosmetic issues but has been shot very little. These are my favorite finds as I can usually put good ignition parts, a slide stop, and bushing for about the price of something new. I refinish most of the guns...

    I had one chambered in 45 ACP which I foolishly sold. I found a good deal on a 9mm version so I picked it up. Damn, I forgot how tight the lock up is on these.

    Well since my other WTB failed to produce any results I am putting a feeler out for the one stock Springer 9mm 1911 that I can import into this state for a build. Since it is for a build condition is less important, to be honest all I want / will use is the frame but since this state wont allow...

  7. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Question for the smiths out there, who makes the best replacement slide for a 5" 9mm gun? Do they sell / ship it proud? Looking for one for a Springer 9mm Project as I suspect replacing the slide besides yielding a better gun in the end will be cheaper than trying to have the giant billboards...

    I have a chance to pick up a Springfield Custom Professional in 9mm for $2000. So guys how do they compare to Wilson, Nighthawk, Ed Brown? Any info would be gratefully appreciated.
  9. Sold/Expired Classifieds
    I am putting my Springfield RO up for sale. I have upgraded to a Nighthawk Enforcer and do not use this 1911 in 9mm anymore. Build year is probably 2015 or 16. I do not have the paperwork but am the original owner. Added a magwell to it from Dawson Precision but have the original parts you could...

    I was at my LGS, Fuquay Gun and Gold in Fuquay Varina, NC today, and I saw a NIB Combat Operator. I don't know how they got it, because I've never seen it there before. If I remember the price, it was $1,445.00. Now that is not a great bargain, but they might negotiate.
  11. Competition 1911's
    Today I completed my first proper competition rig. It's a complete Safariland ELS rig, and it's pretty dang nice. I like that I can go from Single Stack to another division without even taking the belt off. Prior to this, I had used a Bladetech belt and holster with the magazine holders that...

    So one of the VERY pistols I actually regret selling turned out to be the SA EMP4 CCC. It had some problems... the ejector stuck out the back of the slide a good 3mm, would FTF occasionally with certain ammo, and loved to jam open if not laid thick with oil...... But when this thing was working...

    I’m sure everyone on this BBS has more than one 1911. What is your least reliable 1911? Have you gotten rid of that 1911 that is not reliable? For me, I have 5 1911 pistols. A Colt government, DW PM7, Les Baer P2 and NH Talon have been absolutely problem free. My Springfield loaded 9mm...
