    Look into Novak. If you don't do your own work, Novak will do it for you if you send them the
    slide. If you send them the whole gun, they will sight it in for you.....sort of pay and play
    :D. but I h...

    Some of the earlier P226 models, especially European imports were produced without rails. Sig
    P226's don't wear out quickly so there are many out there sans rail.Order the one for the rail

    Some of us just can't resist personalizing our pistols. Some things, like trigger work doesn't
    show, but makes a world of difference.My personal stamp is a Gadsden Flag grip. Three 1911's
    all with Gad...

    Yep, 3 months is relatively new. The Colt is a great pistol and the Combat Elite is well
    refined.Most single action triggers will be relatively light compared to your other handguns.

    Olympus mentioned a "thin finish" issue with the STI's. I carried a Lawman for over 2 years
    with no finish issues. Maybe I got lucky, but the other STI's that I own have had no issues
    either.I don't c...

  • Posted in thread: My new 1911. Any advice? on 05-03-2014 at 05:48 PM
    Always nice to add to the family. Be aware, 1911's are addicting....first you think that you
    should just add one to the collection, then maybe a Commander size as well, then maybe another
    caliber. Add...

    If you can manage another $100, the STI Trojan is a good choice. Built completely in
    Georgetown, Texas.....doesn't get much more American than that.Dawson Precision has them in
    stock at the moment for...

    Last I checked the RIA 1911's are made by Armscor. Now they have their USA headquarters in
    Parhump, NV. They are making some ammo in Montana and they have plans to open a factory in
    Parhump to build f...

    Like OldEagleEars, I have 3 different style guide rods, just like his line up. STI Spartan,
    FLGR; STI Lawman 4.0, 2 piece full length; and a Sig Stainless Carry with the short rod.All
