1911

  1. Pistol and Revolver Forum
    I had to laugh when someone posted here about Glocks complaining they didn't update enuf for their taste. What do they think about 1911's then??? The 1911's are heavy, have to keep cocked and locked to be ready, you have to manipulate the hammer, low capacity, poor penetration. In short they...

    Well folks, I'm going to find out. Out of sheer curiosity I recently picked up a ATI 1911 (item code ATIGFX45MIL). Just a plain-Jane 1911 replica. I've been wanting to play with a 1911 platform for awhile and for the price I figured, "what the h#*l." I also figured that I would bring ya'll along...

    January 2014 palmetto state armory announced their 1911. Here it is over a year later and nothing. Does anyone have information on the palmetto state armory 1911? Was there a change in plans? Was the project culled? I was really looking forward to adding one of those palmetto state armory...

    http://www.armytimes.com/article/20110828/NEWS/108280315/Pistols-shot-replacing-M9 The Army has a new pistol in its sights. After 25 years of action, the M9 is on its way out as officials are confident they can give soldiers a better pistol at a better price. The goal is to replace all 239,000...

    I got a 1911 in a trade that must be a custom gun. It has an STI Slide, Novak Sights, Essex Arms Frame, Ed Brown Barrel, Ed Brown internals with Wilson Combat Safety. Anyone have any ideaabout something like this? What it might be worth? The fit and finish are great and the gun locks up tight...

    So two days ago I was giving my wife's friend a ride home from a hospital. He is a big boy 6'7 280 pounds. He sat in the passenger seat while my wife and 3yo sat in the back. We stopped by my house then went to take him home. We were stopped at the exit gate of my community when he flipped...

    I have a Rock Island Tactical 1911, NRA 95% or better, with nice Bianchi leather paddle holster, extra Chip McCormick mags, and several additional grips. Has case, etc. I bought it to use as a pattern for a Caspian I built for my son, and now that the Caspian is done, I have no use for it. I...

    Possibly in the market for a good 1911. I have shot a few before and I just love them. A full size is a little too large for my hands though. Something slightly smaller would be a perfect fit for me. My eyes aren't exactly the best, and I am left eye dominant, and wear glasses. I'm about 200...

    I am tempted to trade my WASR (+1 magazine) for a Springfield 1911 (+1 magazine) and some extra cash. I paid $475 for the WASR and I know Springfields already run at about ~800, right? The only things holding me back: 1) the WASR will only go up in price if the AWB goes into place, though I...

    I expect the prices and availability to go crazy on these two platforms if a ban goes through. In my opinion, when magazine capacity is limited this we be the set-up of choice. I think Garands will become non-existent from the CMP, and 1911 makers will be the new overnight AR makers. BTW, Last...

    A close friend just got back from Afghanistan and gave me a very belated birthday gift. It's a world war 2 type chest holster with a magazine holder and 8 bullet loop. She also had put a new magazine and 8 bullets. Now here's my problem the leather had turned the bullets green but nothing to...

    I have a 1911 Gov't that I want to get a holster for and what I want is something outside the waistband, something that sits high as possible and it doesn't matter what kind of material. I want the gun secure when it is in there even when running, don't want it bouncing out of my holster or...

    In the 1980s there were three events that helped influence my opinion on handguns and handgun calibers. #1 – My dad and I were having a discussion on a revolver vs a pistol. Even though a revolver holds fewer rounds then a pistol, my dad liked the revolver over pistol the due to the...

    In (I believe) 2009, Ruger released their SR1911 pistol. At the time it was released, all the reviews I read were glowing. I am a relatively new fire arm owner and currently own smaller caliber guns. Regardless, I had made a mental note in the back of my mind that this might be something I...

    Man oh man, what a weekend. In a previous article we talked about survivalism as an experience and not just a theory. This past weekend was to expand my experience, and to improve upon my theories. Part of my prepping for SHTF / TEOTWAWKI includes going to the Bug Out Location for a couple of...
