That's one reason I like to keep a couple of 38 Supers around. The ammo has never been cheap, but prices on 38 Super haven't gone up much at all recently. I usually buy ammo a case at a time, and...

My carry, bedside, and training guns are all modern Colts and I appreciate things like front strap checkering, an undercut trigger guard, and a beavertail grip safety which allow a higher grip on the...

Really nice.

You probably already know this, but make sure you follow the correct disassembly process for the collet bushing.

No, that is not excessive. Follow the advice given about magazine followers, and replace the recoil spring every few thousand rounds and it will likely be fine.

Nice GCNM. To be honest mine shoots about the same as my 1911 Classic 38 Super, but I do like the adjustable rear sight. It's a classy looking pistol -- I really like the serrated flat top from an...

Sounds like the pistol in question won't be shot very much so it should last a long time.

If the Lwt Cmdr was on GB I was watching that auction closely. And was very tempted. You don't see those in 38 Super come up very often. Congrats.

It's a Gold Cup National Match (special edition) so it is strange that it doesn't have the pony. Now, it would be less surprising on a Gold Cup Trophy, but the GCNM typically has one.

It's funny I was in a LGS lately and they had a brand new S70 Repro and a brand new S80 in stock but no Classic. I found it ironic that they didn't have the current offering in stock but they had...

Aftermarket front strap checkering will probably run $275-$350 or so. Adding a mag well is at least another hundred bucks, unless it is custom fit to the frame -- which it's not on the Trophy --...

A stock GCNM in 38 Super is the closest thing I have.

9mm wasn't forced on any of the tier 1 units, they chose it. And they actually shoot people with it sometimes. The 45 still works, but any ball ammo is a really lousy choice unless it's the only...
