There's also the Advantage Arms conversion units. Also, while not a 1911 another good choice for a trainer might be a Smith & Wesson M&P .22 Compact. The manual of arms is the same as with a 1911 and...

I was going to go shooting today, but at the last second decided against it. It's a shame to have to avoid shooting just because I don't know if I can even replace what I shoot up. Instead I went...

If you're a ninja or soldier trying to hide in the dark then yes. If you're a civilian who needs to show the bad guy that you're armed then a bright silver weapon is actually a plus.

Just clean them with a mild soapy detergent and hot water. No need to nuke them. Be glad you got your pistol back and that it's still in good condition. Most theft victims aren't that lucky.

Ian of Forgotten Weapons did a couple of videos which explained the auction process quite well. Because of the sheer number of guns involved in auctions it's impossible to buy just one at a time, so...

3,500 MRBF meant the average number of rounds between malfunctions. The old 6,000 round figure that was reached during the original tests in March 1911 was the number of rounds it went without...

Just a little tidbit on 1911 reliability. During the US military's JSSAP tests in the early 1980s the M1911A1 was the control weapon, and it was shown that it had a mean rounds between failures...

As always, be wary of no-name mags posing as GI surplus. You'll find them at gun shows, pawn shops, online vendors like CDNN and Sarco, and so forth. They're usually between $10-$15 and are nearly...

The barrel at left is how factory barrels should be. I can't help but note that the barrels in my 9mm plastic fantastics are all mirror-bright and clean out easily. Yet I always have a bear of a time...

Excuse me?!? A cocked 1911 with a manual safety and passive grip safety is somehow more dangerous than a loaded Glock that will fire if anything catches on the trigger? :hrm:

If the "other" party wins, banning online ammo sales will be part of their agenda. So forget about there being any end to this.

The M2 .50 cal is also an old design. And we won't get into the fact that nearly every modern handgun owes its design to the 1911. Even the Glock.

I think the biggest problem is generational. At...

The only live critters I ever hunted were slugs, which are plentiful here in the wet PNW. As a kid I would go around the yard with my BB gun, shooting them from about ten paces. My mom soon put a...

That's a very authentic-looking "Model of the 1911A1". When you get it so that outside of five feet you can't tell if it's a real USGI or not you're doing good.

I wouldn't go that far. Plenty of guys who carry Glock 19s are just as much men as those who carry a 1911. However the simple fact is that while the 1911 is no longer a practical choice to arm a...
