  4. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Below is a recent experience I had with a gunsmith. I don't know what to think about it. More qualified opinions are welcome. (Note: The feed problems I was experiencing seemed very much like the problems in this thread.) I took two S.A. 1911's to a gunsmith - a Range Officer Compact 4" with...

    Hello all and Thank you Jelly for the welcome. Its been 40 years since I had a 1911. Decided it was time to 'go back home'. First trip to the range with it made me remember just how good it feels. Looking forward to reading a lot of good info.

    I have become an 1911 addict in just the last couple of years. Have owned one or two in the past, but always ended up trading them off. Then a couple of years ago I traded an unused rifle for a Kimber Covert and now I have Kimbers, Sigs, RIAs, S&W and just recently bought a new Colt Competition...

    Howdy all. Jason here. I've been an avid 1911 addict for many years. I still remember my first one when I was 18 years old. It was a Colt 1991A1. One of the guns that got away. I still kick myself for it, but time has past, and I've bought and sold many others. I'm currently stuck on a...

    I ran across the forum as a dipped my toe in the 1911 waters last year. I did not know what I was missing with this platform compared to the plastic/service pistols in my safe. I enjoy shooting handguns of different types, but there is a difference with 1911s. Looking forward to lots of...
