    Did a detail strip on the Colt Combat 10 I got recently just to get it to as clean as can be so it can be set aside. What I’m curious about is the recoil plug. It’s plastic with a metal spacer on it. Also has dual recoil springs. I had a gun like this many years ago but can’t remember what the...

    Just curious what you would consider the most collectable, or most valuable 1911. Other than my first answer of "mine," what really is worth the most. I'm not just really talking price per say, you can drop anything you want on a new one, I'm talking about "history," kinda tough to explain I...

    I noticed my 2017 TGO1 built gun does not have a Allen wrench to field strip to take apart the FLGR. Blue plastic bushing wrench yes. Spare grips & spare FO sight insets w L shaped tool and all paperwork but no Allen wrench. We’re these included in the box set when new ? And if not what size...

    Just wanted to share my 95 .40 Hi Power. I just got the Heinie sights installed by Fletcher Custom LLC here in Va. I was quoted 6mo to a year and upwards of $245 to have the sights installed by several other very reputable smithing services. This does not include the sights and refinishing...

    I LOVE the VZ grips on my specialist but I'm never one to leave well enough alone. What "other" grips look good on a fighting pistol, not a show gun? I've seen the black and white VZ's. What do ya'll think? BTW, headed to the range this morning to begin my 50 round break in. I'll post pic's...

    OK, don't get a rope yet. I would be hung for posting this on other forums. I'm sure everyone who owns a Dan Wesson 1911 with the Duty Treat coating has read the millions of "opinions" on how to care, clean and lube for this finish. My question: is "polymer safe" Gun Scrubber aerosol safe to...

  11. Competition 1911's
    I'm going to start shooting in some local club IDPA matches. What equipment will I need? I know most competitors have made those "beginner" mistakes starting out. I'm trying to avoid some of these. Holster, mag holder, etc. What works good, what doesn't? Thanks !!

    I'm looking for a few more mags for my new 9mm Specialist . Dan Wesson.com is out. Any other places to buy them?> If I go with Tripp or another brand, which model, some of these companies have several choices in 1911, 9mm magazines. Which one do I buy. Sorry, always had the .45 ACP mags.

    Bought some 115 TacXP, loaded mag, put gun in my bedside drawer. Gun sat for a couple months. Went to shoot and rotate magazines, the first shot, "CLICK", racked slide, ran the magazine, no problem. I sent the "dud" to Barnes, yelling that they coulda got me killed. They sent a return sticker...

    After reading all the negative feedback on current Dan Wesson 1911's, I'm broadening my search. Seems like from a $1500-$1700 price range, The TRP is left but OH. I want a 9mm. Les Baer, seems to be next in line going up but I don't see where he makes a 9mm. This brings me to Nighthawk, Ed...
