Well, a whole-house generator running on natural gas helps when the grid goes down. A backup gasoline generator and a portable AC unit helps if Plan A fails. A house designed to utilize natural...

I like ghost ring sights since I also use slugs in addition to shot. Just my preference.

I will enjoy the lanyard...If DW will build what I described! Maybe I'll pair it up with one of my saddle-ring carbines, take the reins in my teeth, and go charge some pigs from horseback!:)

Pretty to look at, and a cool presentation piece, but I'd be leery of using it with those apparent weld cracks. Doesn't look like he got a solid billet in the forging process.

That sounds like it's on the high end for one with "freckling" on it but, then again, it's a really fine pistol if the wear is just cosmetic. I found an unfired one (no longer unfired) a couple of...

Another vote for the Wilson flat recoil spring and GI-style guide rod. I've pulled all of the FL guide rods on my 1911s and replaced them with the Wilson setup. No issues at all and no impact on...
