I'm not a big fan of the Trojan's looks either. I don't think it will ever get to the point I think it's a good looking gun. But reliability and accuracy give it a beauty all its own, especially...

Getting a 9mm + 2011 + compact to run reliably would be a handful for almost anyone. SV makes some good stuff, however, and you would be well-served by one of their guns.

Keep in mind that the...

This is old hat around here. Bob Marvel (I think) pioneered it and Joe Chambers and Jerry Keefer, among others, currently use it.

I've got a 9mm Ranger II. Out of the box, the only real issue I had was a failure to consistently lock the slide back.

The frontstrap scalloping is shallow enough that I just wish it were...

Since such a surplus of shops stamping out Stoner's sporters have suddenly surfaced, STI's similar stuff scarcely stands out.

Shooters seem smitten by STI's superior sidearms, so STI should strive...

Exactly what problem are you having? Getting consistent lockback on the doublestack mags can take a bit of work.

I don't really have anything to compare the digital scales to (except counting marks on the wheel), but it works well enough for me. I suppose if I had a full DRO system side by side with my setup,...

I have them on my X and Y axis and they work very well. I never got around to putting one on the Z axis. I use a dial indicator for that and it works pretty well since I am rarely plunging the head...

I've owned the Grizzly mini-mill, G8689, for about 10 years. It can do most of the operations that are commonly performed on pistols. I use it for sight dovetails, frame/slide fitting, ramped...

Yes, the Ranger platform is a standard 1911 style frame, not shrunken to a proprietary size like the Springfield EMP.

As a rabid collector of 1911s and 2011s, 4" guns represent maybe 5% of my collection (and guns shorter than that, 0%).

I really don't see myself ever buying another 4" gun. They are only handy...

There is just not that much metal in the 2011 frame, so I would rather just have steel and not ever have to worry about it.
