1911

  1. Sig Sauer
    I recently bought a full size Sig 1911 Elite in SS. I'm looking for tritium fiber optic night sights for it. Sig says they don't sell them but the rear dovetail is a standard Novak cut. Brownells says they don't have anything that fits. Really? Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    So ever since i've bought my Sig Scorpion, and have bought a few Magazine's for it.... i've noticed it's picky on the which ones work.... Kimber's, Sig's and Chip McCormick's work flawlessly, and drop from the gun when pushing the mag release.... everything else i've tried doesnt lock the...

    I have been using this new tool called the Gripwrench and I thought I'd show it off. I use it on my 1911 that has a very tight bushing to slide fit. When I take my slide off, I use this new tool to haul out my bushing instead of using the barrel to impact it out. I always make sure the barrel is...

    I have two sets of nearly new sights for sale 1) Original Sig Night sights. 2) XS Big Dot Tritium. About half price seems fair so asking 60.00 US per set or 100.00 US for both. I will take them to the shipper but you pay all shipping. Thanks burchsc
  6. 1911 Gunsmithing
    Hello all. I picked up a Desert Eagle 1911C recently, and I'm gearing up to do some gunsmithing work. I have alot of things planned for the pistol, but one thing in particular I'd like to do is install a bobtail (which I've done before) and stipple the bottom of it, like this: My question...

    SO I inherited is Mark IV Combat Elite Series 80 38 Super. I've tried doing some research on the gun and they seem to be somewhat rare (not sure though). My first question is about the serial #. From the research I've done it seems that most Combat Elites have a serial beginning with CG however...

    When firing my Sig C3 compact 1911 I noticed most of the spent casings have a crease in the rim. It looks like a little "V". any thoughts on what could cause that? I am going to run some empties through buy hand and see what happens, appreciate any help. Also, thoughts on magna-porting a C3?

    Just picked up my first 1911, the new Nightmare, and I'm having an issues with I think the mag. When the mag is loaded up with 8 rounds it won't lock into the gun, it feels like it's hitting something. If I lock the slide back the mag will then lock in but slide jams up with the first round when...

    I had a question regarding federal law when it comes to individuals under the age of 21 transporting a handgun to and from a gun range. I am from Washington State and State law says those individuals are permitted to transport and shoot a handgun at a range, so long as the handgun is in a...

  16. Kimber
    Hey guys, I recently field stripped my Kimber 1911 Gold Combat 2 like I have a ton of times. After I put it back together the trigger will not move on a double action pull. I can pull the trigger and fire from there but if the hammer is down I can not use the trigger to pull back and fire...

    Every time I get the urge to buy my 1st 1911, I stumble across the same problem: it's got THIS but it doesn't have THAT. I just want a 1911a2 which has all the cool tactical features, stock, for under a grand: :lol: double stack night sights tac rail front strap stippling some sort of 2 tone...

    Alright so I'm thinking of getting my first gun and it definitely is going to be a 1911. However I know there's a ton of places out there that carry copies, clones, whatever you want to call them. I'm partial to Colt myself because, well, it's Colt. But I recently saw a 1911 designed by...

    I recently inherited a Llama 380. It does not eject the first couple rounds, then works fine. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

    Hello all you 1911 enthusiasts. I've hit a snag with a recently purchased Dan Wesson Classic Commander Bobtail 1911. I ran some Golden Saber 185 grain JHPs through it no problem. Then I wanted to get some other ammo, so I bought some Buffalo Bore 230 grain +P JHPs. I noticed that it would not...
