    Hey everyone, so I had something interesting happen today while firing my Colt Walther 1911 22lr Rail Gun. I was using that Winchester 22lr boxed ammo that comes with 555 cartridges. I noticed that 1/10 times the gun would jam and have a failure to feed, leaving the next cartridge not completely...

    Just got a Rock Island Arms Baby Rock, stuck a set of DuraGrips .380 Tactical Two Face grips on it to look similar to the VZ G10 Operators on my Para and am loving it! Now I need to be able to go out a fire some rounds through this little gem.

    Trying to see if anyone can orient me in the right direction. I have two Colt 1911 with the "COLT *** USMC" marked on the slide. I am the first and original owner of both of the pistols which came directly from Colt. The cerakote pistol was purchased before Colt was told to remove "COLT ***...
  7. General Gun Discussion
    I'm looking to buy my first 1911 this holiday. I'm going to try firing one before I buy one, but I've read numerous forum discussions on the recoil of the .45 auto through the 1911 platform. Almost everyone online says it's somewhere between a 9mm and a 357 magnum recoil-wise; not as snappy as...

    Buying my first handgun today. I really havent heard much bad about the Taurus PT1911, so I am thinking about going and picking one up today. Academy has them for $500, so I figured why not. Does anyone have any experience with the gun that can shed some light on the quality and if its a bad...

    Hey guys, I posted this on thefiringline as well, just wanted to get some suggestions on a potential purchase of a new pistol for my wife. My wife and I have just gotten into shooting, it's been about 14 months now are we are really enjoying it. We've picked up a few pieces over the last six...

    What are the cheapest 1911s that have polished steel frames and slides?
  11. Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    Hi, My dad recently gave me a 1911, Colt 45. His father took possession of the gun while in the army during WW 1. The production number is: 194255. The pistol has not been fired, (or cleaned) since then. It appears to be in good condition. I’m considering selling it, however I don’t know what a...
  12. Concealed Carry
    Hello! Just made an account to ask some people's opinion, since it's been bothering me for a while now. In short, this is what I would like to "decide", if it's even possible. I would like to know whether or not I should stay with my current pistol. Before I get to the story, I'm going to...

    When Dad died in 2012, I came into possession of his handgun, a Colt .45 (1911 - Series 80 - LW Commander). The wife and I took a handgun safety course last week and it was there I fired Dad's gun for the first time. I've fired a rifle before, a .22 pea-shooter, but the magic of firearms...
  14. New Members Introduction
    I've never fired a handgun before in my life. I've fired a .22 rifle a couple times, but I never caught the gun fever. I'm 54 years old, and it's time to get my Man-Card punched. My dad died a few years back and among other things, he passed to me his Colt Mark IV Series 80 Lightweight...

  16. General Gunsmithing
    I have, what's probably a dumb question, but I've searched Google over and I can't find an answer (which means that it's so obvious that no one has ever asked). Anyway, in re-assembly, what happens if you miss the barrel link with the slide stop? Is it even possible? If so, how would you tell? I...

    Hello Mates, I am in the market for a 1911. I have shot them countless times and find them far superior to any other weapon I have used. It is time to add one to my collection. So far my favorite is the Colt Marine Corps 1911. Being in the Corps i have used this one the most. However Sig's...
