Posted in thread: Unknown revolver on 03-25-2015 at 07:55 PM
These revolvers were quite common in Europe in the latter half of the 19th Century as the
Mosin-pattern was adopted by many military and police organizations. Of course the Russians
used it far longer...
Posted in thread: My first "serious revolver" on 11-13-2014 at 06:18 PM
As an update; I've moved the Pitbull into my carry-rotation to join the S&W .380 Bodyguard and
the RIA .45 Compact 1911 as EDC pieces. While some may question my choice to have more than one
size and ...
Posted in thread: My first "serious revolver" on 11-07-2014 at 05:34 PM
I took the new Pitbull out for some exercise yesterday. As I said, I'm mostly a 1911-guy with
only a couple of .22 revolvers in my safe and a session with a friends S&W .357 magnum a while
back so it ...
Posted in thread: My first "serious revolver" on 11-05-2014 at 10:23 PM
While I've been heavily invested in the 1911 community for several years, the idea of having a
reasonably powerful, snub-nosed revolver in my carry rotation has always appealed to me. When I

I just bought an RIA CS. Doesn't say anything about Tac on my box or gun, could someone tell me

use them ...

What you have is a Rock Island 2011-Tactical single-stack Night, a new model for 2014 that
comes with Mepro night sights and no forward serrations on the slide. The small logo on the
left of the slide...

I've had my Rock Compact-Tactical .45 for over a year now and it's my primary CCW. The standard
ACT-Mags are NOT cheap and crappy magazines as some would have you believe! They are one of
Posted in thread: Average 1911 owners age? on 04-18-2014 at 04:00 AM
Shot my first one in Vietnam at age 24 (thing bit my hand bad!), but bought my first 1911 when
I was 67. Now I have three; a big 'un (.45 ACP 5"), a little 'un (.45 ACP 3.5"), and a fat 'un
Posted in thread: Full length guide rod matter? on 01-31-2014 at 05:31 AM
I have three 1911-type pistols and each has a different guide rod; a one-piece FLGR, a GI-style
and a reverse-plug in an officers-sized pistol. Though two of them take down easier with a tool

Both the Single Action Army and the 1911 are Classics (with a capital "C") and rightly so. In
