    I need a bit of help I have these magazines, they are for a 1911. I have been doing some reading and I think the one on the right is an original WW1 Colt lanyard, it has the keyhole also.

  9. Semi-Auto Handguns
    As part of my effort to upgrade my safe, I'd like to get a better 9mm 1911. I have a Star Super B which is pretty nice: good trigger, decent bluing, okay grips. It shoots fine. But I'd like to get something "better." Have done some research and the Combat Commander (all steel, this will not...

    First off thanks to PandM for the connection. And South Shore Sportsman for, as usual, a smooth transfer. And SCPD was ok, too. What I finally got home is a 1911, not 1911A1, made in 1918 according to the serial number as per Colt. I realize the grips and main spring housing arent original, but...

Came with the original box, all the paperwork AND the original bill of sale from 1994. Bought new from T&T for $649.95. Special thanks to PandM on the...

    How much play is there supposed to be between the slide and the receiver? My SA 1911 is super tight. when I shake my Colt 1911 I can actually hear a little bit of, for lack of a better word, a rattle. Normal? not normal? a symptom of being shot a lot?

    I have an opportunity to purchase a Sig 1911 through a military group buy by some friends of mine. I don't know much about 1911's. I only have one hand gun so far (a FN .40). It's the Emperor Scorpian model. Anybody have this model or a similar model? Any advice? I'm getting it custom...
