I've carried mine for the last 7-8 years. Somewhere north of 13k rounds, six classes, and a few matches. It was a bit nightmarish during break in but it hasn't broken any more parts than my...

Just imagine how much more accurate that barrel would be if it was wrapped in carbon steel.

Lots of times the brass is impacting the back edge of the ejection port as the slide comes forward. Sometimes the case will impact the forward edge, ricochet off the back edge and fly forward. Your...

You need to put the hole far enough so that the spring and plug can compress enough. Give it a shot. You'll see that too close to the end doesn't give you enough compression for the plug to clear the...

You would probably have to get a custom made barrel as the factory barrel is not a standard 1911 barrel. The review that ASM777 posted shows some good pics so, by the time you buy and fit a new...

At least with the Wilson 47s, the 7 round spring follower kits use the rounded follower and the 8 round mags use the other. I figured the difference was to allow the extra round in the 8 round mag.

Good stuff. I'd also make sure the extractor is not clocking. That will definitely cause it to lose the case rim and eject erratically. Checking for clocking and extractor tension won't cost anything...

The only holster Ive tried that was as comfortable as the VM2 is the Crossbreed Supertuck. Definitely worth a look.

Compact Springfields

I've got several 4" 1911s as well as the traditional CCO 4.25" pistols and, while the frame is smaller, it's not significant and shooting it doesn't feel much different. I've got a picture of my...

Compact Springfields

The EMP was built specifically for the 9mm cartridge and was designed to be a "micro pistol" so I doubt they would start making it bigger.

If what you want is a 1911 with a 4" barrel on an...

I use Wilson springs for both my 5" and 4-4.25" guns and you don't need to cut them to fit. Sounds like Arkie is asking the right question.
