    Hi ladies & gentlemen. I'm new to the forum, love to shoot, hunt and reload :) I got a 2nd hand Norinco 1911 A1 C. It's got all the design features of the classic Colt Commander except it's made in China. It came with 2 COLT factory mags and no Norinco mags (wonder why?). The gun has not...

    I have a old colt 1911 and the frame is split I have been looking at SARCO for 80% frames. Has anyone had any experience at fitting new frames to old slides?

    I want to put a frame-mounted scope on my US Govt 1911 without drilling holes. I know Leupold, Aimtech & others make mounts that replaces the right-side grip but the one that attracts me is the Armalite B-Square which straddles the slide and attaches via the slide stop pin. Anyone out there that...

    Im getting ready to put a new barrel and maybe a new comp on my 1911. Id like to know what experiences you all have had with different barrel brands, my main concerns are of course accuracy and longevity. Id also lik to know which compensater has the best size to effectiveness ratio. Thanks

    Thursday I picked up a 22 conversion Kit for the 1911 style pistaols. I have thought about these for quite sometime now and when I saw it I emediately asked "how much is it going to take for me to get out of here with the converison". The owner offered me a good deal and I took it. I...

    Anyone use one of these? It replaces the bushing on the 1911 model and "reduces muzzle Jump" I was thinking about one for my Gold Cup. The gun shoots great as is, but hey, accessories are cool. Am I wasting time & money, or do they work? Accuracy affected? Thanks EMC2

    I'm looking for recommendations on hostlers for a full sized 1911. More specifically concealed carry holsters. What have you used and liked? I'm a fairly big guy and prefer strong side (right handed) or small of the back carry.

    I have a full-size .45 ACP 1911, and feed it target level reloads of 200 gr. lead bullets with 4.5 gr W-231. Wandering thru a gun show, I found a supply of recoil buffers. { For the newbies: these are ~1/8" thick rubber washers that go behind the recoil spring, and form a cushion where the...

    Hello, Mr Bubba again, soapbox in hand! Today it's about the apparent need to improve the 1911's extractor. Smith is using the pin & spring style, Kimber is using a Glock style, Para has their own wierd design, and I think Wilson offers some other style as well. I suppose it's all well and...

    The more I think about the idea of getting a 1911, the more I like it. I am particularly fond of the idea getting a cheap one and building it up myself (just something special about it) What parts should I look at. I am thiking and extended slide release is a no brainer since I know I can't...

    I have a Springfield 1911A1 with Bo-Mar sights. The rear sight has become so loose in the dovetail I can slide it back and forth. What is the best method for me to secure the sight?

    Regarding GI contract 1911 magazines. Does anyone have any recent experience with the post-vietnam mags with contract numbers on the floorplates. I would like to know if the recent new surplus mags have feed lips shaped like the current civilian (Colt, Metalform, etc.)mags. Or are they still...
