Can we get a Sticky or a section for Turkish 1911's?

Can we get a Sticky or a section for Turkish made 1911's? The Tisas and Girsan along with the Regent 1911's are becoming more and more popular and I would love to see a spot dedicated to photos and information on these brands.

Unfortunately you guys are going to have to get in line. There are so many manufacturers of 1911s out there, and so many other brands that are more common but don't yet have their on sub-forum. We're trying to keep the number of sub-forums to a reasonable amount in order to make the forum easier to moderate.

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.

So what brand is next? or is there just a moratorium on new MFG forums?
what is one of those brands that is more common, that doesn't have a sub-forum. that is more popular than Metro or Tisas?

Maybe you might combine a couple sub $1000 foreign production brands into one forum, so the less expensive off shore manufactured ones can play there?

OR combine the high end,like EB, LB and Nighthawk, as there may be less viewers in those forums combined? or Fusion and guncrafter. or combine the forums that get little traffic like Taurus, fusion, caspian. I'm sure one can come up with ways to reduce the number of forums if that is the goal.

Like you could have a junk forum for Para and Taurus. or a Nobody cares forum for Remington and Sig.

I approve this message. Having mod'd 3 forums, one having only one section and very active, I see no difference regarding oversight based on the number of categories, sub-categories, etc.

If it were up to me I'd shift some of the existing sub-forums around, but I'm not the one with the keys. There are so many 1911 makers out there that it's impossible to have a sub-forum for each one, so regrettably somebody has to be ignored.

Remington? I care about Remington. Happens to be one of the best shooters I have. Has never had an issue.

This is a joke joke right?
No ones cares about Remington or Sig but they do care about "Turkish".
April 1st, I get it now.

I agree the Turkish models should have a place of their own.
My intro to the 1911 was a Girsan, and my last addition was a plain Zig M.

The Tisas was the first 1911 that I tore down to polish up, so it may be my fave to shoot.
I ordered a sear jig from Brownells today. The Girsan will be the next polish job, before I get to the USA and Philippine models.

Love my Tisas zig m, picked It up a few years ago only managed 5-600 through It, my only pick's are the tab on the grip safety rubs the web of hand and that recoil spring, don't know the weight but I swapped It for a 16lb much better.
I guess for now we can put Tisas In our thread tittle's, which Is what I look for anyway when coming to this sub-fourm, glad I found this thread I was starting to think I was the only one.

Another vote for a Tisas forum. I bought one just to see what three hundred and fifty bucks would buy for any kind of gun. I was not expecting much. I was very pleasantly surprised. Mine has become one of my favorite 1911's. Always goes bang. Shoots where I point it. Not covered with billboards. I think it deserves a lot more attention. I have no intention of dissing other makers, but these are good guns.

They really have stuck around pretty well. I would think that people are much more likely to own a Turkish 1911 than a Guncrafter (265 total posts) for example.
