Any of you puffers own or care to comment on STI 1911s? I'm looking for an entry level model and their Spartan 4 seems pretty solid. I'm also looking at the Ruger SR1911, feel free to drop some knowledge about that too.
Not just any 1911, WWI issue 1911. one of the first 15k made from the markings and such. Grandfathers best friend recently passed, and gave him that gun. but my pops has too many, so he gave it too me since his buddy liked me a lot cause i had the most respect for anyone unless they gave me...
OK, I have been reading a lot of the threads here on Puff...great stuff!
I plan to purchase (soon) a gun for CC. Once I have the gun, I will then take the Texas CHL class and I want to be able to use the gun that I will carry as my range gun for the class.
I have determined (after handling...
I have been looking to buy a 1911 for my duty carry weapon. Has anybody here purchased one of the Sig 1911's and if so what do you think of it. Now I have never been a sig fan but from what I have read sig is gearing up to take on kimber head to head with their 1911's.

First thing I did when I got my...
I was bored last night so I decided to detail strip my Raptor while smoking a cigar. It was a beautiful night. Well I had it all apart, and decided that since it was I might as well use some Birchwood Casey Aluma-black on some scratches on the black Raptor trigger. The scratches just annoyed...

Filler: Dominican Republic, Nicaraguan, Honduran
Body: Medium-Full, according to website
So I bought one and I love it. I also bought the .22 conversion, but the slide is sticky. As a matter of fact it is jamming on occasion when fired. The guy at the gun shop told me to keep oiling it and firing it because Kimber makes them "very tight."
Anyway i was wondering if anyone has the...
Got new grips for my Kimber, one grip screw bushing came out with the grip screw during the change. Me being an idiot stripped the bushing threads while holding it in pliars to get the grip screw out. I have new bushings on the way from Midwayusa. Bushings are just a screw in part right...
