Klonimus?

Has anyone heard of this company? I never have. Supposedly they make M1911A1 and Government Model parts.

Nope, I found a reference to grips but that's all. Do they have lanyard loops?

My reference was about your previous post that was answered but not acknowledged in the Lanyard Ring post.

Klonimus Update

Seems that they also make MIM Commander hammer knockoffs. No word as to what quality.

Klonimus Hammer

Here's a pic of their hammer from an Ebay add. The part looks very good for an MIM. No visible parting lines or ejector pin circles. Of course one never knows what the quality is until you take it to the range!

I am pretty new to 1911's but I was looking for a cheap single sided thumb safety to replace the ambi on my GSG 1911-22. I ordered a cheap one on ebay and when it arrived yesterday it was a Klominus brand. I will fit it tonight but for the price it seems like a good part. I went back to the same seller last night and ordered a checkered flat mainspring housing to replace the arched grooved one on the same gun.

I tried to do some research on Klominus on the net as well and there isn't much info out there. Their website is kind of strange also.

If you want to know more about this company. I actually live close to the owner/operator and I have recently picked up one of their 1911's. So far 350 rounds with no issues. Very stand up company. They make 1911s, Ar15 and long range rifles also. If you want OP I can take a few pictures of my 1911 to give you an idea of how their parts are?

Here are a few pictures. I could not get photobucket to work.. Hopefully this will work. I painted the sights with white nail polish because I have a hard time with black sights. I will be looking to replace these but not sure on which ones yet.

Sorry here are a few more. Also this is the ejector I plan on replacing. It throws brass in randomly. So I will be fitting an ejector an sizing it to the right spot so it ejects at the 3' o clock position everytime.

@Brandonl87 - The slide says BUL - which is owned by Magnum Research and the guns are a product of Israel - or did they just use a BUL slide.

@Motodeficient - On your GSG 1911 the magazine safety is in the arched MSH. It can just be removed and discarded. You will need a longitudinal spring retaining pin (as is used on most 1911's) as the GSG pin is transverse IIRC - I just remember I had to hunt one down when I changed out my MSH.

Adios,

Pizza Bob

I believe they are working with Magnum Research. Here is their website https://americandof.com/

Yes I had previously discarded the magazine safety portion of the factory MSH a while back.

I did not know about needing a different retaining pin though, thank you for that information.

I'm sorry, I still don't see the connection, or any mention of "Klonimus" and American DOF (your link). American DOF just appears to be a retailer of BUL firearms as well as a training center.

Can you enlighten us further?

Adios,

Pizza Bob

Klominus is a division of DOF. Not sure about the connection to Magnum Research though...

Before you do that, I would see if your extractor needs adjusting as I use/prefer that style of ejector (not so long so you can clear loaded rounds) and have no problems with erratic ejection on my guns. If your extractor tension is on the low/loose side you will get tend to get erratic ejection.

I'm late for this dance. I bought a set of Klonimus double diamond grips for my Kimber Stainless Target II 9mm off of eBay for my accepted offer of $20 delivered. They fit great and look good...especially for the price. I also found their website. https://www.klonimus.com

I picked up a klonimus, checkered steel mainspring housing off eBay for $17. Fit and finish are nice.

I picked up a blued "fully machined" hammer off of eBay. They have the same style hammer that is advertised as MIM and is cheaper. I was really impressed with the quality. Better than some Fusion stuff I've ordered off of eBay.

It shipped from Charlotte, NC which is where Klonimus is based out of. Their address is not in Florida as a previous poster stated.

I just got in an order from Klonimus that included some extractors, ejectors, springs bushings, etc.
I have to say all of the parts look REALLY good, Full Stop.
Add in the low price and now I am quite impressed.
