BTW there is one on Gunbroker right now. Unfortunately the seller literally wants what a mint original WW2 Colt M1911A1 costs.

A long time ago I bought a Colt 1911 that had the triggerguard filed in front to square it off, which made it very thin. I took it to a welding shop to see what they could do. I was told that it was...

The point I was making was, Colt could have made tooling to produce the correct-looking parts, or else simply outsource them to somebody else who could do it for a lower cost. I doubt anybody would...

When the Dissipators first came out I hated their looks, but I have to say that now they're starting to grow on me. They're certainly no more unsightly than a 16" carbine with a long Pinocchio-nose...

That probably explains why the triggers in my Colts, even my Series 80s are so good. My latest S80 had a 3.5# trigger out of the box, even with the nasty FP safety bits in place.

At the risk of sounding anti-patriotic, we didn't exactly give China a beat-down in Korea. They surprised the hell out of us at first and pushed our lines way back, but the courage and determination...

Yours sounds a lot like mine. Does it only say Sendra on it, or is it marked Rock Island Armory as well?

As long as you still have a 3.5# or heavier trigger you should be GTG. Never use a lighter trigger on a defense gun, as 1) you could potentially have hammer follow at the worst moment, and 2) you...

A common theme on this forum is the guys who say they can't stand the MIM or cast parts on their 1911s, so they replace them all with parts from Wilson, Brown, etc...; parts that they fail to realize...

BTW I count myself as one of many who find the long wide-spur hammer on a 1911 to look extremely sexy, but alas can't shoot a pistol so equipped without drawing blood. My Sistema came with such a...

Remember that the originals were machined from specially-formed barstock. All modern repros are either investment cast or MIM. I think the one Kahr uses on their guns comes the closest, but it's...

I immediately knew it couldn't be a first-year pistol because those had a longer barrel and used a barrel bushing. By the way, if you're going to shoot it a lot you should probably remove those hard...
