It would probably kick way less then the 500. 2 pretty hot 45s have the energy of a .44 mag, however, you would be shooting 460 grains of bullet down range, so I'm guessing it would kick a little...

You could a beavertail installed on your 1911, or perhaps get the hammer shaved down(bobbed I think they call it). You could get the spur hammer replaced by a commander hammer or skeleton hammer. If...

Agreed. I would say some have exceeded the Colt in quality, but, I like the fact that Colt still builds their guns "old school", with a little slop in the fit for reliability.

9mm 1911s seem like a fairly decent idea for those who want to practice more. The 1911 frame is obviously a good one.......the only thing is, if you reload .45 its way cheaper then factory 9mm, so...

That actually would be pretty cool. 10mm ammo is expensive though.....reloading is a plus!

Eh.....I think the picky nature of 1911s is over stated......you just have to pick the right one. The XD i used to own was more ammo picky then all but 1 of the 1911s I have owned. It is true, that...

Agreed, the Brown is a fine piece.........however, it's pricey. If you have that kind of money go for the brown......especially because, it sounds like you're looking for a range pistol based on your...

I agree.......however, people do make mistakes and the fact Nighthawk gave the guy a new pistol is an important factor. That being said, seeing that would make me pause before buying one.I must also...

No problem, and tactical is correct the original was not an "A1", but the point is the same really....the loose fitting is often intentional. However, I hope your choice of guns works out for you...

Correct! The reason I worded it that way is because the para is a variation of the A1.......and, even the A1s were pretty loose fitting..........so THERE! : )

The thing is.........the original 1911A1 design is loose fit, and rattles. That's one of the reasons it is(when properly built) one of the most reliable pistols. The reason the Colt rattles,...

I actually saw one of the pictures and yes, it looked like is was fitted by a blind man. The checking was way off and the slide to frame fit looked like a world war 1 1911 that had fired half a...

I have experience with all three, and if I had to pick, it would be Wilson. That being said, they are all very nice guns.

Some people get super technical about the definition, but "1911" seems to be a broad term nowadays. More technically, it would be a 1911A1, or a 1991A1 etc. Is a gun with a firing pin block really a...

The 1911 trigger is amazing. The only triggers that compare with the 1911s I own or have shot, are single action revolver triggers(or DA in SA mode). I have a Hi Power out for trigger work and am...

My gun dealer has an older Kimber, one of the so called "Series 1" guns. The thing is built like a tank and is fit wonderfully. It kind of upsets me-the direction Kimber went. Nevertheless, there are...

I think I'd have put in a Wilson safety too. A buddy of mine had his fairly new Kimber go off when he dropped it(the thumb safety was on too). He called Kimber and they built him a new pistol,...
