Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

You guys are totally making me jealous. My nephew has been bugging me to build my own 1911 instead of buying an already built one. All your pics has me almost ready to click the buy now button. Those are awesome! Just remember to figure twice the cost of the firearm depending on how far you go. Jus...

Re: New addition..

Another older gun in nice condition, good buy if the lefty works for you, I dont have much interest in anymore shotguns but in that shape if it had been righty i may of gone for it. Yes, I am LH but you are correct. Either side worked for me. I’m sure if I list this on GB and the fact it was discon...

Re: New addition..

I have one of the more common models, bought used, and not in this condition; but runs great and very reasonably priced. The 870 is an iconic shotgun and the Wingmaster is a great derivative model. That price seems a tad high to me, but I don't know how much the age and LH rarity adds to the collec...

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

So do you notice the compensator and does it make a difference? FWIW, the Wilson bushing comp works great on my Kimber, it really makes a difference controlling flip and on follow up shots. The downside is that it blackens the front sight so don't spend too much on a Kensight like some idiot did......

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

DW 1911s are very nice - especially considering their prices. While they are definitely not cheap with some in the $2k ballpark, they still have not gotten to the full blown price insanity of some 1911s that are in the $4k to $8k range. You’d actually be fairly hard pressed to buy a Plain Jane 1911...

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

Love it! I've got a few 1911's in 9mm that are stock but have been itching for 38 super. I had the exact sites you have. One of the few things I took to a smith was the front sight post removed & slide cut for a fiber optic one. Fell in love with the front red fiber with my Springfield XDs and want...

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

Love it! I did the same thing with a RIA 38 Super. I love 38S and collect them but I need a range shooter. Purchased firearm then went to WC for the upgrades. Spring, guide rod, guide buffer, beaver tail, trigger and hammer. Supposedly buy and fit which was not the case. Needed a new sear and some f...

Looks new in the pics but its 1-6 months older then me. Wish I held up that well :lol:
:-D

Will see, waiting on them. I can only go buy what I have read. Five digit serial number does date way back. Reply from T/C carries more weight.

I agree, I can’t find one mark on it. None.

Re: New addition..

Thanks guys. Doing even more reading on the TC line. The G1 Contender has a HBS (Hammer block safety) when pulling the hammer you can see it move away allowing gun to fire. I’m even more convinced this is a gen1 Contender. Manufactured up to 2003 then came the G2. Encore started in 1998 which was a ...
