    While it has been a terrific learning experience for me over the course of 7 self builds. I think I'll take a break from it for a while. After all.... how many self builds do Mrs. C. & I need. (her words) Anyway........... here's the family portraits (less #2 build. A lefty I gave to my son at...

    I was at the FFL today and he showed me something that he just got in to sell on consignment. Its from the original Seattle, WA. operation where Detonics started. Supposedly the the original owner is in failing health here in AZ. and they are liquidating his firearms assorted collection. It is...

    Is there anybody here who would be interested in resurrecting what WC so selfishly took from us. "The Dog Tags" I would like to buy & have made some tags for my 6 Wilsons that are incomplete without them. I would be willing to pay a fair price for them as I'm sure many others here would as...

    Yeah, build attempt #6. I received the frame today from JEM. This one is going to incorporate some of the extra parts I have accumulated through the previous 5 builds. It will inherit the NH Trigger (ignition) Kit that I purchased. Currently Steve O. (aka. @Integrity Arms ) has it for testing...

    For those unfamiliar with the term "Poop Gun" I'll shed some light on the matter. When I received my FS Wilson in CCH & Baron Blueing I almost pooped my pants when it came out of the case. (Those aren't exact words but language modifiers would only change it anyway) To this date I and many...

    I'm not looking for a museum piece or high dollar safe queen (unless the price is right) but more of one that I can occasionally shoot and appreciate for its age. Show/tell me what you have, what you want and/or what you would like in a trade.

    These just arrived today, courtesy of Gunner Products. I asked Gene if he had access to some Brain Coral material he could make into some grips for the Collector's household. These were his results. The magwell set are for my NH Classic... (when/if it ever gets here) The Bobtail set were scales...

    As stated the other day, I didn't really know what Zoid-Voice impulse buy command prompted me to purchase. Well.............. today USPS delivered the fruits of his labor. I'm thinking he had me purchase these only to trick me out of them. His out-loud thoughts of Deadpool wearing a pair of...

    Disclaimer: I'm posting in this forum only because there isn't one titled "Gunsmything" for us wannabes. Encouraged by the "relative" success of building the Groot&Pam. I've decided to push my luck and with limited skill, attempt another build. This one will be quite similar with only a few...

    Since @razorbacker sold his EVO KC9 & made a gal very happy, I thought I would pick up where he left off. My hopes are to make a range run tomorrow morning with a bag full of lead & hardware. My plans are to take these 3 and a variety of 9mm ammo. If all goes well, I will post a range report...

    HELLLLLLPPPP! ......Mr. Wizard!! (Tooter Turtle ref. ) I'm looking for some advice or input on a problem I just encountered during my first build. I have fit slide to frame and barrel to slide. Trying to put slide, barrel & frame together is where the issue reared its ugly head. The pictures...

    Many of you have followed along with a thread I started several months ago, looking for information on tooling used for french borders, carry cuts, ball end cuts etc.... Anyway the pistol is finally finished. This has been a real learning experience, and big confidence booster. Much more than...
