Website questions/suggestions ONLY!

Attention members,

Apparently some folks have been a bit confused lately. This section is for questions, suggestions, and comments regarding the 1911 Forum itself. It is not a place to ask general questions like where to find good deals on ammo, etc.. Those questions belong in the appropriate section elsewhere on the forum.

Thank you.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
