    Saw another poster on here talking about their odd-caliber ria so i figured I'd take my .22 tcm 2011 for a walk. I had 5 new magazines and a set of hogue wraparounds to test out along with my now clean ejector that was previously too dirty to function. Filled each mag to 16 rounds twice and they...

    Hi all, I inherited a 1911 from my dad a few years ago. It has "Policia De Tucaman" stamped on the slide and Interarms Alex, VA on the frame. I was just curious about the history of the gun. It also has matching serial numbers for the slide and frame. It happens to be one of the most reliable...
  6. The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    With the ammo shortage and no cheap 9mm or 45 acp I have started reloading from my stash of supplies. One I love is the 400 Corbon which fits a cheap barrel dropped into a 1911. I took a simply Rock Island 45 dropped in the barrel and heavy spring, added a shock buff and enjoyed it for a...

    My brother and I are both retired vets. He is a service disabled Viet Nam vet and I'm disabled from too much stupid stuff from my younger days. I took full advantage of the military "Don't worry, we'll fix you" mentality. Paying for it in my old age... but I did have a lot of fun. We have to...

    So a trip to the range to test and see if it was ammo in my XDs-9 3.3" or my me that was leaving me off target. I think its just me. I just don't shoot that thing that great, especially compared to my 4" XD or my SR-1911. So I'm looking for a 4"-ish barrel pistol that is slim for IWB and...

    Greetings! I started with a post seeking advice on how to sell my 1911 Colt .45, and it was suggested that I post over here to get some expert opinions on what the pistol is worth. It's a Colt Gold Cup National Match, .45 cal, Series 80 MK IV. I only have one photo available at the moment...

    I was just handed down a 1911 that's been in my family and I was interested in when it was manufactured. If someone wants to give value that is fine too but not really interested since I never plan on selling. I noticed that it says Patented Dec 19, 1905, Feb 14, 1911, Aug 19, 1913. So I was...

    I purchased this 1911 recently and I’d like to get some information on it. I believe it was made in 1917. The slide is marked “455 calibre” and the frame is stamped by the raf. The grips and trigger have been replaced. At some point the frame got cut and a 45 barrel was added. Any and all...
