Well, I go out twice a week on average to get provisions at the local grocery stores, and the chances of catching the cooties are just as high there. I can't stay inside 24/7... I'd go mad. If it's...

I highly doubt it's rusted so much on the inside that the slide won't even move. It would have to look like it spent a year on the ocean floor to be that bad. What you're likely to find is small...

They would love to, but they only have so much manufacturing capacity. It's not like the old days at the Colt Armory when they had several football fields' worth of space to play with.

I stopped by the local shop today just to pick up some more .22 ammo. It's still busy, still mostly Asians standing at the counter. You can tell them at a glance because they're the only ones smart...

Let's face reality. The overwhelming majority of semi-auto handgun designs copy either the 1911, the P.38, or the Glock to some degree. In fact most polymer pistols these days are simply Glock clones...

There's a video that's floating around on YouTube of the US&S factory making pistols during World War Two. In one scene they let racks of pistols drip dry after dunking them in tanks of a...

I have swapped slides on many 1911s before, but they were always similar models. I once swapped parts on a blued and stainless Series 70 just to get the two-toned look, and currently my USGI shooter...

It definitely needs to be fully disassembled, cleaned and oiled. RickB gave some good advise, so I'd say make this your weekend project then show us some close-up pics after you're done.

Holy cow people, this self-quarantine thing is painful enough without having to resurrect debates on lube, shock buffs, FLGR's, and front cocking serrations. If this keeps up I may end up shooting...

The Hudson H9 was a cool design, but for $1100 retail it did nothing that guns half its price couldn't get done. As a competition pistol in categories where compensators weren't allowed it had merit,...

Yes, the original brown plastic grips were prone to shrinkage. My dad bought a blued pistol just like yours in 1966, and a few years before he died he took the grips off for some reason and just left...

I prefer the 20-round length over the 30s. In fact I shoot with my 20-rounders 90% of the time. True 10-rounders are too short and are difficult to grab. It's kinda like Goldilocks said, the...

The serial number puts it at 1960 production. If the nickel finish is original then that would add some interest as it's a rare finish for a pre-70 Series. Unfortunately I do see some pitting and...
