  1. General 1911 talk
    I finished the 200 round break in with my Dan Wesson Valkyrie today. I started it a couple weeks back but it was snowing like hell, so I got the hell out of there. Just a light rain today, and the pistol performed beautifully. I was using white box Winchester ball ammo, And shooting it...

    I bought 200 rounds Winchester white box hardball, grabbed the pistol and drove to the Oregon cost range. Its only 25 or 30 miles from my house. I was surprised to find it snowing like hell, and 4 inches on the ground already. My old jeep Cherokee did't mind at all. I found a place...

    picked it up at my FFL today, Very impressed so far. I took it apart to clean the grease off it. Never had one near this tight before. The barrel lock up at the rear is pretty impressive. Need to order a couple mags , and a leather shoulder holster. think i will get a Ted Blocker Holster...

    I have 2 plastic frame 9mms, 1 is a itty bitty Ruger LC9 i think they call it. (it serevs a purpose but i cant really love it !) and the other is a SnW M&P2.0 compact. I bought extended magazines for both. The 2.0 actually came with spacers to slide over the 17 round mags of the full...

    Kimber is a brand i don't see mentioned here ! For the most part i have a hard time getting excited about them. the logo is not to my liking, and some of them just look like , if i may quote George Patton"only a pimp in a New Orleans brothel " would carry. But others look pretty good and...

    going to buy a EDC 9mm It will at least be a Colt LW Commander, but i may well get something much nicer. I was looking at the Wilson CQB compact. Wow, that is sweet ! and under 3 grand. maybe a Dan Wesson, of some kind. They are defiantly a step up from the Colt. If i could find a Wily...

    I was on the Colt web site , The web sight itself has changed a bit, and there are some custom shop pistols shown. Is the custom shop running again ? or maybe just selling older builds ? does any body know anything ?
  8. 1911 Gunsmithing
    i want to ask the smiths there opinion of the currant Colt lightweight commanders. mostly will the frame hold up say 1000 rounds of shooting per year ? I am familiar with whats out there and might go Dan Wesson. Or Springfield. Thanks !!
  9. General 1911 talk
    Do the .45s have a ramped barrel or is there a steel ramp built into the frame to protect it ? Thinking of getting one. I like the look of them and the feel too, but it needs to be durable. I had an old one and the frame cracked. I had it rebuilt on a stainless caspian frame...
  10. Caliber Talk: Ammunition, Reloading, and Shooting
    I want to spend a big chunk of my Tax return on a 1911, for carry. I have a commander .45 and a ruger 10mm, I love both rounds. I like the .38 super too. 9mm is a good round but i have 3 good 9s already. 40 smith to me is not going to happen. I love the 45 , and if you had to shoot...
