As amazing as a custom 1911 would be, I doubt it’s something I’ll ever be willing to pay to play with. It’s just too much cash for me to have tied up in one firearm. Maybe if I did an 80% build from...

That’s what I figured. My hope is that the Reaction lands close to or better than my Tactical HD as far as overall quality goes. Been really happy with that gun, but that $795 price tag for a...

Thanks for your response. I should’ve stated I’m already leaning towards replacement the trigger group with a forged parts kit like Ed Brown. I’ve heard MIM parts won’t hold a polish, but just want...

I love the slides! The one thing I’ve always thought would be icing on the cake was a set of snaps for easy on and off. I contacted Baranti about it and was told to “stay tuned”. I’m really hoping...

MIM Nitriding

Is it worth it? There’s a TON evidence to back up both camps regarding the arguments “for” and “against” this type of parts in a handgun, but I don’t want to dive into that. I’m planning to have all...

I didn’t find anything above or in that 1500fps range with 124gr projectiles on their page. Closest I saw was 1425fps with #7. Here’s a pic of what I found on the VV site:

9mm rebore to 9x23 or 38 Super Comp?

Are there any gunsmiths you’d recommend,...
