    I went to a couple LGS today to look at 1911’s, and came across this little gem. I knew just a little about them before I saw it, enough to know in this condition, it was priced well at $400. Can’t wait to pick it up and run some rounds through it. If anyone has advice on dating theses things...

    Near immaculate model 66, only a few cylinders have been shot through it since I have owned it. Pictures show overall condition. $1,400 or BO -- shipped and insured from Scottsdale Gun Club. Minus shipping and insurance for a local deal. Just the gun, no box or paperwork.

    $2,000 for a Colt Detective seems high 😖 The $400 on the 642 seems low, I may have to pick that up.

    I’ve been married for 25 years. My wife just said something I thought I’d never hear. “...well, don’t get rid of it.” Back story, I sent a 1967 Model 37 S&W back to S&W because-of a cracked frame and they sent me me a new gun. I told her I was going to sell or trade the new S&W. Here’s what...

    I've had a big shift toward revolvers in the last few months and decided to finally make the plunge to get something I've been eyeing for a long, long time (I blame you @WhoIsJohnGalt?) - a S&W 625 Mountain Gun in .45 ACP. I was able to get one off Gunbroker last week - one that the original...

    Starting the search for one because I've got a fever and the only prescription is more big bore N frames. Let me know what you got!

    I was wondering if anyone here knows of a company that makes half-moon (3-round) moon clips for S&W 45 acp revolvers. I see that the full moon clips are the standard and that speed beez seems to make a 2-round version but I've had trouble finding a manufacturer of half-moon clips besides...

    Okay I accidentally pressed a button so I gotta redo post lol So…if you’ve seen my earlier post, I recently ordered a Gunsite LW commander and they sent me the wrong gun, a government model instead. They offered to swap it out, however being the addict I am, I asked if they’d honor the sales...

    This came out of nowhere! Interesting concept and design.

    Not sure if anyone has seen this yet but it looks like S&W is trying their hand at a hybrid 1911-esque hammer fired, aluminum frame pistol in 9mm. Here's the link to the article: https://gunmagwarehouse.com/blog/smith-and-wesson-csx-sao-9mm/

    What are the great years for production of S&W Performance Center, specifically 1911 in 45 acp? I have seen reference that it is not the current models with lightening slots in the slide. Certain production year and prior?

    Got this S&W 10-5 a few years ago from my grandfather. He was given it by the sheriff at the time before I was born. It came with a shoulder holster piece and some large black grips, while felt good I just didn’t like the look. I ordered some grips from Altamont, as I’ve been extremely pleased...

    Long story warning: a few year ago this J frame 342 was stolen out of my wife’s vehicle. I have some friends in the local sheriffs office, turns out not 24 hours later they were caught with a bunch of stolen weapons (They even had audacity to film a “rap video” with all of them including this...

    Hello, I was cleaning my SW1911TA today that I installed a GI guide rod from Wilson Combat last year and I noticed some unusual localized wear marks on the edges of the section that makes contact with the frame. I wanted to see if this type of wear is characteristic of GI rods or not.

    S&W 642 purchased earlier this year, like new. I put red nail polish on the front sight, put a dab of blue loctite on the screws, and shot 50 rounds through it before placing it back in the safe. $450 shipped. Paypal f&f or venmo preferred and I'm open to offers! If you're local to me in...

    I picked up this Smith and Wesson revolver several years ago and only pay it some mind on occasion. It is a beautiful gun, as you can see in the photos could use a cleaning, but I haven’t shot it much. Reason being, not long after I bought it, I began to hear something loose inside the frame...

    S&W 52-2 Mid-Range 38 Special wadcutter. Decent shape with 3 magazines. No box. Asking 1499. Do you think that's a decent price? Thanks.

    Going to refinish a S&W Scandium frame. The front strap under the trigger guard actually has more material under it that any other 1911 I have. Looks to be beefed up a bit in that area. Do you see any reason not to be able to put a nice usable undercut on there.? Thanks for any advice given.

    Always loved my S&W e-Series, but never liked the look of the black hardware. Was thinking about ordering WC bulletproof replacement parts in stainless, but then I'd have to figure out how to fit the new parts and re-stake the plunger tube, etc, etc. So, rather than that, I went cheap and...
