I saw one for sale at a gun show in the early 1990s. I remember thinking what in tarnation was the Government Model rollmark doing on the wrong side of the slide. I never did see another one like it....

It's not a USGI frame. It's a cheap cast frame made by one of the common makers back in the 1970s and 80s, be it Essex, Vega, Crown City, Federal Ordnance, etc. The Ithaca slide is legit and it...

Actually it was Bill Duke who defoliated the jungle, after Jesse had been killed by the Predator. What I found funny with that scene was the fact that in my youth I was already doing a pretty good...

Yeah that's a problem at the place I was shooting. The ground must be several inches thick with shotgun shell hulls. The only good thing about it that they make great impromptu .22 targets.

The guy(s) who run Legacy Collectibles know their German handguns, like Lugers, P38s and PPKs. They do not know much about US martial arms like the 1911. I've seen them describe pistols wrong, and...

Uh-oh. A Colt part, and discontinued too. Put it on Fleabay and watch the bidders fight over it like crazy. :dope:

The shiny red stocks on Ubertis drive me nuts, as they're not authentic. A year or two ago I removed the grips on my Cimarron SAA and refinished them, and they look a whole lot better now.

The owner and I poured over those images, and the consensus was that his is rollmarked. But it's also the only one I've ever seen like that.

Probably the best choices. I would assume that a T-Rex would be about as tough to kill as a bull African Elephant. And a pissed off, wounded bull elephant is pretty lethal as it is. Between getting...

I wouldn't say it's a prototype. Colt was in a transition period at the time and a lot of features changed on their guns. Even today we often see oddballs show up from time to time which make no...

Now that you put your first scratch on it you can run it like you stole it, then someday get the flats polished up good and reblued.

Your 1943 Colt should be Parkerized, not Dulite. Singers, early Remington Rands and Ithacas, and all Union Switch & Signal pistols were Dulite blued. Colts were oven blued until 1941 at around...

I find it really bizarre that we had one member here who got an O1911C with conventional rollmarks, while everyone else before and since has received one with laser-engraved markings.

Having just read magazineman's latest post I've changed my mind. For T-Rex a .25ACP pistol should be sufficient, as I'll just pop magman in the kneecap with it and then run. :)
