Re: This sure is tempting me

Does it use standard 1911 parts? Parts you can order from anyone.

Re: 1911 .45 Love.

There was a time, no one wanted a 1911, "you couldn't hit anything with a .45".
Guess revolver makers spread that rumor.

Re: What handgun do you EDC the most?

Glock 43 it is. Hit 90° all ready and this one comes in at one pound. Lets see, the .45 was pushing 3 pounds and the Range Officer was 2 pounds. Feels like I walking on air.

welcome to the forum, eh

Made quite a few business trips to Ottawa. Those guys kicked it into high gear in the winter. Building hockey rinks in their backyard, 24 hours skating on the Rideau canal.

Re: Hello from Indiana

Welcome Hoosier, a beautiful state. Did a lot of RVing up there.

Been looking into Freedomsmith trigger. With the Ghost springs, my trigger pull is just under 3# but still has a lot of excess.

Re: Pulled the trigger

Way to go

I was talking to a clerk at Academy and they said they don't charge a fee for transfers. I mentioned Bud's at a Mom & Pop store and they said they charge a premium for Bud's transfers.

Re: Greetings from Italy

The prices are all over the place, $250 to $4,000. I can buy a polymer frame for $250+, a steel frame for $400+. The "Extreme" models go for $1,000 $2,000 and $4,000. I will have to say, the factory boxing is quite impressive. Only issue I have had with Canik, is replacement parts not made in Americ...

Re: Greetings from Italy

Welcome Small world, been looking at an Italian handgun, the Tanfoglio. Had good luck with Turkish handguns, Canik. Do you have an opinion on the Witness? As a "funny" note, I was on a business trip to France, drinking coffee with a co-worker from Italy. As I was thinking the French served a small c...

Factory Holster Retention Release TP9SFx

Ran into a guy that explained why the retention release was on the inside, between the holster and paddle. It is safer. If the retention release was on the outside and released with you index finger, you are more likely to draw and you finger lands on the trigger. You are supposed to flat finger a r...

Re: Firing Pins on Backorder

Springs just delivered from Ghost. Good service, less that $3 shipping and they arrived in 2 days. That plunger spring, striker blocker spring, was causing that gritty feel on the trigger. Trying the 6# striker spring. Got the 6.5# just in case run into light primer strikes. I've been running the G...
