    Interested in what people think an underrated 1911 or best value 1911s are? Specifically 1911s on the higher end. For instance it seems a lot of people comment on Alchemy being really well made for its price point. So couple points of clarification.. When I say "your opinion" I mean your...

    I am not going to mention the manufacturer, not trying to get around the min # of selling posts. I have 2 CCOs in 45acp. Bottom line is that shooting 45s, especially with a lightweight frame is brutal on my hands and have moved to all 9s. The pistol has been my EDC in a kydex holster for 7 years...

    Who uses the Blue Book to determine gun values, and how close do you think it comes to matching current market values? Been doing enough buying/trading that I finally decided to try an on-line subscription, and I have to admit I was a little surprised by some of the values listed, a lot of...

    This is an awesome shooting an looking 1911. Barsto bull barrel with a magnesium phosphate slide, hard chrome lower, and STI trigger. I can't get the build sheet to come up anymore. I'm just thinning out the herd a bit for a non gun related purchase. The gun is in excellent condition. It does...

    This is for sale locally. It has been refinished in black oxide. Hammer had been swapped, so a 1918 hammer was purchased. Seller is asking $700, which seems like a decent deal. Pictures below. Any thoughts on price vs. condition?

    I do not have pics, well...I do BUT I have been told not to share them. Does anyone know what the value of an Ed Brown full Custom 70 series Colt Gold Cup with a maxi Comp would go for? Ballpark? A friend is getting one given to him that has been in his family, it is Stainless and I would say...

    I keep a spreadsheet on my firearms, which is 90% pistols. I highlighted the value column and I'm well over $50K Anyone else keep track, and afraid to add up their value? I should create a wife column, which would add up to $5K :)

    Hi, I was browsing the local store recently and ran across a 1918 1911 colt. I was wondering what the valve of something like this.

    Assuming no blemishes, dings, scrapes, etc. Could do without the laser guide rod. Actually, would not want the thing at all- I am just not a fan of lasers. I believe the 'silicon parts' is part and parcel with the Action Tune, but not sure. The KKM barrel is a nice touch and I'm sure it wasn't...

    It seems that Remington Rand values are less that the rest, I guess because so many more were made and lots more of them on the market?? I have a chance to buy one for $1400, but that may be to high?? not sure. I'm thinking $1200 should be a good price. Opinions welcomed.....

    Would $3k be out of the range of a never fired P7M8?

    I have a chance to pick up a NIB Colt Commander in 9MM, its a model O which I have never heard of before a few minutes ago, I guess I should also say that its a Combat Commander, guy wants $850 for it, was wondering if that is a fair deal or not? pictures look great as most any new Colt does, if...

    Hi! Would anyone like to give an opinion on a pistol I am thinking of selling? I found this realized auction and wanted to ask if this would be a realistic value for a similar pistol? I have a Colt factory on the way to prove authenticity, but there should be nothing fishy about this one. It...
  14. Caliber Talk: Ammunition, Reloading, and Shooting
    Gents, I found a few boxes of old primers in my Dad's gun stuff tonight. He started doing a little 12-gauge shotgun shell reloading back when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I think he stopped before I hit middle school, so these must date back to around 1963 to about 1969 or so. Any special...

    Build date of 2009 PC9102 Looks to be in really good shape

    http://www.armslist.com/posts/5832904/flint-michigan-handguns-for-sale--wilson-combat-protector Anyone put a value of some type on this? The smiths were Kelly, Allen and Vaughn. Closer pics show the finish still good. SN is in the mid 500's. More of a collector's piece of is it actually a...

    There is an opportunity to get a 1974, 6", Royal Blue Python.Gorgeous wood grips, UNFIRED, 100% as new, not even a hint of mark on cylinder, but no box/papers. It has been a absolute safe queen. I know SQUAT about revos, except that Python's rarely if ever go down in value. I went on GB & this...

    It looks nice. Non-matching box. The trigger doesn't look right for a 1969? I can't really copy and post pictures since they are not my pictures. The finish looks fresh and original.

    I have recently come across a 1977 Colt Gold Cup National Match available for sale. It is in excellent condition, however it has none of the original packaging or items that came with it. I'd appreciate approximate valuations of what it's worth and whether it would be a good base for a build or...

    I have the opportunity to acquire a minty blued Colt government series 70 (mark IV) made in 1983. It has the collet bushing and box. Missing the styrofoam if that matters. This is a model I've been wanting but keep pushing to the back burner. A couple of questions. 1. What is it worth. I...
