That's frequently a more expensive solution, but it's what I like and use. Bill Rogers recommends it in his book.

The EMP4 & Commander I measured were both 9mm, but 9mm 1911s are the same size externally as 45ACP 1911s.

I'm reasonably certain that EMPs in 40S&W are the same size as 9mm EMPs, but I don't have...

Commander slide and EMP slide are 0.915" wide.
Both frames are 0.755 0.002" in front of the trigger guard. The guns look identical from...

Well, yes, it is like a 17... the frame of the 34 and the 17 are the same size.
However, the grip size has been reduced and modified so that the gun now points like a 1911.

That's what I think, too. 44/100ths of a second is enough time to ascertain that you still have an upright target and then to fire again. It's not enough time to look downrange and try to see your...

I carry a Rogers Precision gun. I've taken it (and other equivalent guns) to Gunsite, the NTI, various matches, etc. They're machines, not art.

If that's a Commander sized 1911 pattern pistol, standard 1911 magazines should fit.

Branca knows self defense law well, but initial reports were that the McMichaels thought Arbery was the burglar seen on the surveillance tape. That doesn't justify a citizen's arrest. If the neighbor...

The first time I shot a Garand, I had not been briefed. After the 8th shot I heard a loud PIIING and saw something depart the rifle. I thought the gun was spontaneously disassembling.

I just installed one of these on a Colt Combat Commander; very snug, but required no fitting. Looks great. Mates up perfectly with VZ flat bottom stocks.
