  2. Ex-Military Rifles & Cartridges
    Question for your rifle history buffs: Did Remington specifically make accurized barrels for the M1903-A4 sniper rifle? OR... Did they just test fire off-the-line 03-A3 barrels and set aside the ones that showed the best accuracy for use on the A4s?

    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...

    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...

    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 and Gals. I have an '04 Springfield Armory 1911-A1 .45acp. It's full size and double stack. All I have ever used and reloaded was 230 gr FMJ RN.

  15. Bullet Casting
    Been thinking of getting a new 1911, probably a springfield GI issue. How do they handle cast with alox lube? Would wheel wieghts be hard enough for ball ammo? Main use would be plenking and such, with posible home defense use.

    I've finally picked what caliber I want. Im going .45! I should have known from the very start. Seeing as I love to shoot the "man stopper." But now of course, Im faced with the issue of what gun to purchase. I've pretty much narrowed my top choices to the Springfield XD or a Colt 1911. I've...

    I have to buy a model 1911 in 45ACP( Yep I'm forced to buy a 1911 stylepistol Poor Me Right). The choices are many. So many it makes it hard to choose. I have seen and heard many tales of frustration and a lack of confidence on some of the clones. 2 catagories are the ones who have marketed...

    This is for a friend who just started reloading. 225 grain cast bullet, Unique powder, 45 ACP in a 1911 Springfield. I wasn't there and haven't seen the cases, but 'most' came out with a flattened edge on the case mouth he claims. I worked out with him the other night how to set up COL and...
