    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I spent some time at the Range yesterday. I took two 1911. A Kimber Super Carry Custom HD and a Phillipine made American Classic Combat Commander. I fired two hundred rounds of Federal Champion Ball and twenty...

    I recently graduated from college with honors, high GPA, top 5%, etc. the whole shebang. My family wanted to congratulate me with something that I've been eyeing for a long time now a 1911. The cost of the thing prohibited me from buying one before (you know, poor college kid stereotype) as I...

    So I am looking at getting a RIA 1911a1 GI .45 ACP. Just the standard GI model. I have been getting back into 1911's lately and got a brand new colt. I love the thing and don't mind getting it beat up but would also like a 'cheaper' gun that I can take camping/hiking with me etc. that I can...

    Put a brand new RIA GI 1911 up to a range test today. 18 Degrees with 1 - 5 mph winds. Let me start off saying that the 1911 is a great platform. The Rock Island GI does its job very well. At first look, the gun looks decent with the parkarized finish. Adding multiple coats of rem oil to the...

    Guys and gals, I am looking at buying a 45acp after the first of the year, give me your suggestions. I am currently looking at the Rock Island 1911 Tactical model. Second option is the Springfield XD. To be perfectly honest, I have wanted a 1911 style pistol for a long time. Please, no colt...

    Hello, I am looking to add a 1911 to my collection and would like your opinions. I am looking for something affordable and most important dependable. My range is up to $900 but less would be better. Your ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

    I'm ready to take a break from the heathen polymer and get some American steel. :o: The first thing I noticed when looking at different 1911s is the price difference between brands. Anywhere from $500 for a Springfield or Rock Island to $2000 for a Colt or Wilson Combat. Now that I've got the...

    Please post if you own a 1911 and it feeds hollow points...reliably. I have a Springfield Mil-Spec 1911 and it will feed hollows if there are only 5 or 6 left in the mag. Above that I have to use Pow 'R ball ammo and its annoying. Please post brand/model and how well it feeds hollow point...

    I'm looking to take my level III and level IV security traning soon. I was wondering if the RIA 1911A1 is a reliable pistol for duty? I already have a shotgun for my level III. But sadly had to sell of my pistol awhile back to make a bill. It was an FEG PJK-9HP browning hi-power clone. It ran...

    :thumb: Just got it paroled from the local fun store after is sat in 3 day time out (enough to make a guy kick a Chicago Democrat in the balls). Also if the FFL holder hit's one button on the ISP instant check wrong it takes about 15 minutes to wade through the phone system. Oh well he serves...

    Can someone point me in the best direction of the most reliable AND least expensive 1911 magazines. So far it seems like Wilson and Chip McCormic are leading the pack, but they are all expensive. (I just got the Chip M 10 rounder. It performed flawlessly.) I really like to have a lot of...

    I've decided to get a Rock Island Armory Tactical 1911 to go with the M1 Garand that I'm anxiously awaiting from the CMP program. (It just seems that if you have a Garand... the right companion pistol should be a 1911.) The question I have is... Can you use any 1911 magazines with the gun? Or...

    I just purchased an RIA 5" GI model, first off I love it, great gun so far. However I would like to put a Beaver tail, the proper hammer for that grip safety, and possibly a skeleton (upgraded trigger). I'm new to smithing and the 1911 platform, so something drop in would be great, but I also...
