'Keltec PLR16 was one of our best sellers. Now I wonder if anyone still cares about them.'

I've always wanted one and there's still nothing like it. The ultimate truck gun.

In the spirit of 'enjoying the variety' and also because of the Memorial Day $150 off, I pushed the button on a BRN-180 upper yesterday. My son has already called dibs on my existing upper, a CMMG...

Its incredible to see a 1918 M1911 in that condition - the bluing of the time is awesome. This is indeed going to be one of the most prized auction lots of all time in the gun world.

You don't need a different 'hard-slide' on a modern 1911 - they all come with fully-hardened slides. If you want it to look like a G.I., get the Parkerized version and put some WWII brown plastic...

Being a lubricant thread, and so with 'no holds barred', I have to tell you in all seriousness that the best light oil I ever encountered was Slick 50 'One Lube' aerosol spray. I discovered this by...

That's the cheapest thing to do and at least it would look like a rebuild, particularly with a set of WWII brown plastic grips.

I couldn't see the second numeral either but there was a space for it. The OP had stated '44,800' but I could see that it was a six-digit starting with 4 and ending with 8117. This makes it 4X8117...

I believe the frame is late 1918, 448117 and the slide is earlier going by the ball cut.
Whatever, there's no percentage in doing anything to it.

That's different. You'd still need a set-up but you'd be dealing with much lower tonnage on the press. I think the main thing for these is for guys who want semi-auto military clones or those who...

The thing is, just the die doesn't do it - you would need the heavy-duty press that forces the marking into the hardened steel slide - as well as the insert to support the slide. Probably all those...

Looks like a detail-strip, clean, lube, rub out the rust on the barrel, put back together and shoot. Looks like this was never done over the nearly 60 years after it was finished and the malfunctions...

Since it is a correct and original rebuild, I would not change anything. Think about the history of it - most likely was in the trenches in France in 1918, could have returned to France in 1944, may...

Carl; if the slide and frame are blued, the best thing is to leave it alone. They don't match anyway and it might look pretty good blued, depending on how much polishing it took to prepare it. Really...

6" low at 25 yards would not even get my attention - that's about 2" at 7 yds which is a much more likely distance for a pocket pistol and pretty good targeting. Maybe you're holding a little...

The frames have never been the problem. 1911s are now made with cast steel, aluminum and even polymer frames, so I'd say one milled out of a block of ordnance steel would be good to go.

On that one I'd say the slide is original finish. The Type III slide on my 1945 RR is rather dark, like the frame, although there was a run of earlier ones that did have a more gray finish.

The Singer does have a unique shape at the rear. Somebody did go to a lot of trouble to 'make' that pistol. I wonder what it was to start with?
