    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 admit I don't know much about pistols. This being the 100th anniversary year of the 1911, I'd like to get keep for good. I do want to shoot it but it's primarily a nostalgia kind of thing. I want one of good quality...and manufactured in the USA. I don't think I'd spend more than...

    I am going to buy a 45 auto in the next week or so and was looking at the new Remington, does anyone on here have one? or know anything about them. The gun shop I was at today had one, I liked the looks of the it. I guess one of my main concerns are, are they made in the U.S.A. or imported like...
  4. Winchester 94 Lever Guns
    Well, I joined to ask for advice, my 1911 94 broke it's firing pin, so I disassembled and removed. As this was a real, working Ranch rifle I do not want to cosmetically change anything. It has earned it's stock bruises in West Texas. What I do need is a replacement firing pin, and advice on what...

    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?

    A friend obtained a used Springfield Armory 1911. It had been equipped with one of the full length sight ribs which had been removed, leaving only screw holes, no sights at all. I ordered a set of Colt fixed front and rear sights. The front is the "stake in" variety but I can't see how to stake...

    Just came home with Remingtons new entry. I love my 1911s, got some Paras and even a Terry Tussy that I lucked into. This new Remington 1911 is very accurate. It looks like all the rest, but it has a good trigger and groups well. Comes with 2 - 7 rd clips. Its on their web site. Good Luck

    I gotta be honest, I wish Ruger would make a 1911 for me, but this Remington will do just fine for now. Slated to be in stores by the end of June, and at a MSRP of 699, a street price should be 550-575 clams.

    I just picked up this Springfield 1911A1 "Loaded" on Monday and actually shot it some. It's not my first semiauto handgun (the othere being a Ruger MKII and a Glock 22 40 S&W) but for right now I like this one best :D. I've shot both Kimbers and Colts, but I like this one better, because...

    Picked up my new Springfield Armory 1911 A1 Loaded tuesday and love the way it feels. The trigger has some creep in it, and has an adjustment screw on the bottom, can you use that to take a little of that out? or is just for disassembly? there was nothing in the manual about it.

    Hey Guys, I have a Springfield Armory GI edition 1911a1. I have only shot 50 round nose 45 acp rounds through it, and thought I would take it bow hunting with me this year. Anyway, I bought some expensive hollow point 45 auto rounds and the darn thing absolutely will not chamber them. The...

    This has been a long time coming and after posting lots of questions here about all kinds of handguns I finally made a buy. 1911 Officer model. STI Guardian. I am sure I will have more questions so get ready. I got a Desanti black Leather Thumb Break for it and it seems to be OK. With the gun in...

    I like both the 1911 .45 ACP and Beretta M9 but which one is truly better for self defense and why? Thanks!

    Hi, I'm looking in to buying a 1911, but I have a low budget. I need on under or around $500. I saw one at academy for just over $600. That's a doable price. The thing is I for got to look at the make. Any help is appreciated. GG

    Can any of you point me to an article or tutorial about setting up a good 1911 trigger? I've done trigger jobs on a bunch of other handguns and rifles, but this will be the first time for a 1911, and it's always nice to read about it first, although I can learn as I go if necessary. I know...

    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...
