stainless

    So just kind of wondering, does the slide and frame material make all that much difference in regards to things like accuracy, reliability, etc.? I know many of the big names predominantly use carbon steel for slides and frames. ACW, Wilson, CCP, Baer, Evolution. They all offer stainless as...

    I am looking to purchase a stainless Colt 1911 Government in .38 Super. This is for a build--so I am open to new or used (potential newer models include "1911 Classic" and "Competition"). Please let me know if you have something you'd be willing to sell. Thanks.

    Well....not quite but close. I posted the other day a question about a Colt Stainless 1911 because I was contemplating using it for a custom build to have Dave at EA turn it into a 70s series stainless Special Combat Carry model to go with my blued one from Colt. Well, in the process of...

    I ask this question as I have only owned 2 stainless colts in the past. A 1991 in 38 super I traded in for my first SCG and a Delta Elite I had ionbonded and customized. While I know a lot about 1911s, I know very little about stainless ones, other than the steps that have been taken to...

    Some people on another forum seemed to have strong opinions on whether stainless should be used in various parts of a 1911. I thought I should come to the forum with the experts. So, any downside to the use of stainless in any 1911 components?

I think he put 2 mags through it the day he brought it home a couple years ago, he says he only ever put 1 mag exactly through it in the backyard the day he got it...either way...

    I purchased this 715 a couple of years ago and I’m the second owner. The original owner said he put about 150 rounds through it and I’ve put somewhere around 150 rds or less. The first time I shot it, I noticed that it had light hammer strikes when shooting double action, so I contacted CZ and...

    I found a local gentleman who has a 9mm 1911 that he is interested in trading. He says it's a Springfield Armory SS Target. I can't seem to find any info on a "SS Target" model. I don't think he's lying to me. It's probably just an older model that has been discontinued. Still, it would be nice...
