      Building a 45 Super/SMC conversion

      I have been sitting the idea of a 45 Super/SMC pistol for awhile. This cartridge is externally a 45 ACP but operates at higher pressures. Ballistics with some commercial specialty ammo companies are in the vicinity of: > 185 grain @ 1425 fps for 835 ft-pounds of energy; > and 230 grain @ 1225...

      Ammo and accuracy

      Just a reminder… I bought a lot of 40 S&W from a member here. I didn’t see any signs of reloading but i have had my suspicions. He did tell me the ammo was kept in a shed. Should have been a red flag there. Got some low reports as I was shooting and accuracy (3-5” groups) was not to what...

      Biden rhetoric spawns a pistol

      Well l, I stopped for a spell on the Caspian/Baer 1911 to take care of a special project. For more info follow this link: https://www.1911forum.com/threads/biden’s-influence-spawns-a-pistol.1041659/ The story goes…. After Biden’s anti-gun and 9mm tirade my niece texts and asks me to...

      Little bit of building the next 1911

      Building a new pistol. First steps are to prep the slide and frame - a general deburring and inspection. Then measurements to map out the slide and frame ways/rail dimensions. No pics of a mill…all done by hand. Frame and slide rails and ways dimensions are typically measured in four places...

      SRT 8, Scat Pack Exhaust

      Looking for good condition take off head pipes with orwithout cats. Fit is for 2013 Challenger with the 392 SRT 8/Scat Pack factory headers. Ported 82-85 mm throttle body would be tempting also.

      1911 Thumb safety redo

      Some of you probably viewed the thread on the Mil-Spec. I truly tried to like the thumb safety but it literally didn’t didn’t get the job done with the grip safety. Most thumb safeies with a rear shelf tend to move my strong hand thumb out and down. I prefer the GI paddle. Even on my extended...

      New Mil-Spec transformed

      Well, jumped on a reasonably priced new Springfield Armory 1911 Mil-Spec pistol. For those unfamiliar with the format it is basically a WWII type military pistol with the following upgrades or changes (for those purists in the group): - High visibility, 3 dot sights; - Lowered and flared...

      9mm loads

      Took the Springfield 9mm Loaded Target I built with a heavy barrel to the range to test a couple different loads. I have had some of the Winchester Active Duty and was wondering about its performance and thiught maybe other members were also. Nothing earth shattering though I did shoot 20...

      1911 Bull barrel recoil system fitting

      I have mentioned this pistol before. Shoots well enough with 124 grain and heavier bullets. I had the stock bushing barrel and a Kimber takeoff barrel fitted to this pistol. While the Kimber was a much better fit this pistol just did not group 115 grain bulk box acceptably…for me. I know the...

      40 S&W at Natchez

      Prices are dropping still. Natchez has PMC 40 S&W FMJ for just under $20/box of 50 rounds. Just sayin’.

      ‘Nuther one

      Here is a Caspian frame/Remsport slide 45 ACP pistol in the works. The slide/frame fit is great laterally .0005”/.0008” clearance rear and front respectively. The vertical is .0025” simply because the slide way was too large. Not too big a deal since the barrel lock up diminishes that slop...

      Short project

      So I picked up a hybrid poly/aluminum receiver. This receiver is the OMNI made in USA by American Tactical. Picked it about 6 months ago. Great price with aluminum thread and take down beds. So I finally chose which direction to go in. I acquired a new assembled upper receiver with...

      Aero YHM

      One of my latest assemblies. Aero lower and select fit YHM upper receiver. Upper receiver was faced/bedded. I couldn’t believe how far off the front of the upper was. DTI middy barrel in 5.56, UTG 15” free float. This is a nice handguard. Aero BCG and a Strike Industry charging handle...

      Tisas SDS 1911

      Just bought one, picked it up about two weeks ago. The Mil Spec Defender Springers are in short supply so I thought I would try this one. Not a bad pistol. Externally decently fit and blended. Inside...not so much. If you do your own work you can make a decent blaster. I had to do a...

      Lightweight 1911 CCO in 45 ACP

      45 CCO Light Weight 1911 on 80% frame. I have been debating this project. It is an Officer size 1911 frame with a Commander (4.25”) slide and barrel. This one is on an aluminum frame, 45 ACP caliber and a Frankenpistol. The goal was low cost and use on my shelf decent used parts to see if I...

      300 AAC...It does exist in the wild

      So I was at Cabela’s looking for a rifle. Awaiting my number to be called I meandered through the isles looking at the empty ammo shelves. I happened upon the only 5 boxes of this. I overheard another fella in need asking the clerk about 300 ammo availability. I gave him two boxes and said...
