At last count, I have twenty four 1911's. Not one of them has adjustable sights. I guess that states my preference. I think adjustable sights detract from the clean lines of a1911. If the fixed...

I had a Sig Fastback Carry, which was a nice gun. Sold it as I recall to fund something more expensive. The one odd thing I found about all Sig 1911's was that sharp point on the rear of the ejection...

I too recommend the Springfield in that price range. Good solid gun and a great platform for any custom work down the line.

My choices are purely cosmetic. I would go with the snakeskin (Kobra) serrations all around, the flush cut muzzle, the beveled slide stop hole but leave the end of the slide stop rounded. I like the...

Have you looked at LOK grips? They are similar to VZ but cheaper. They may have some colors you like.

Forgot to mention, I was shooting under cover but at one point, I stepped out into the sun. That gold beat front sight was shining like a spotlight, almost blinding. Think it's definitely a keeper.

Nighthawk Thunder Ranch

Picked it up last Thursday and took it to the range early yesterday morning. Ran about 50 rounds through it using a variety of magazines, some quality, some not so quality. The Nighthawk never missed...

I have both and I really can't get enthused about the Wilson. Nothing wrong with the CQB I have but for me, it just doesn't have the soul of some of my other 1911's. When I head for the range, I'm...

On top of that, I got up this morning and when I started messing with it again, I notice how sharp the edges on the lanyard ring MSH are. They seemed to me to be digging into the heel of my hand. I...

Who Has A Thunder Ranch ?

Picked mine up today and am very impressed. Two things I noticed tonight, while familiarizing myself with it. The first was that the recoil spring is very strong. Had a bit of a problem racking the...

For what it's worth, about 3-4 years ago, I was having problems with my 9mm Kobra Carry and it was sent back to Brown. In a discussion about magazines, they said they don't use Wilson magazines...

Actually, for me, I'm a bit of a purist and it's just a departure from the classic 1911 design. I think on the Ed Brown, you have to special order them, whereas on a Wilson, you have to look high and...

Before I sold it because it hurts my finger, mine had a leather paddle, a DeSantis crossdraw and a Concealment Express IWB Kydez. They all went with the gun.

Try the 12 round magazine. It is longer and may cure your grip issue.
