      1918 colt 1911 refinish and shooting

      That's really neat. Never have read about that little war. Will have to do some digging on it.

      That's really cool you know all the history on yours. It appears to have alot of great history with it.

      1918 colt 1911 refinish and shooting

      I ordered a complete spring kit for it. 18.5lb recoil spring. Figured the recoil spring being stiffer would be best. Going to try to tune it so there is as little stress possible while firing.

      1918 colt 1911 refinish and shooting

      That's a good looker. Someday when the funds are there and one comes up I will probably get one so I can shoot without care. Lol you got a pretty good deal there.

      1918 colt 1911 refinish and shooting

      I believe that's what I'm going to do. Put a nice blue finish on it, keep it well maintained and enjoy. Need a steady supply of lead rounds for it now.

      Good to know, I spent 900, so I don't feel so bad now.

      1918 colt 1911 refinish and shooting

      Sure isnt, if it's plated properly then it looks good. Yours looks great, definitely a good looking firearm. I will definitely go get some cast bullets for it. Any idea what they are worth after they have been refinished like this? I'm going to give it a good blue.

      1918 colt 1911 refinish and shooting

      Alrighty, I will look into some lighter loads. I've just been running 230gr jacketed ball thru it. I'm not to concerned about it breaking to much. I know it's worth money but on the other hand it's far from its original condition. Parts appear to be correct though. Will probably get another...

      Very true on the parts. But the gun will definitely be okay to shoot without worry? I'm a clean freak so it will be well maintained.

      Great to hear. Know anything of why they cry about the slide cracking so much? I know the metal is softer but surely not that soft.

      1918 colt 1911 refinish and shooting

      Hello all, I recently purchased a 1918 colt, it was nickeled at one point but still has deep markings. The nickel is now stripped and I'm going to reblue it. My biggest concern is I'm reading about not shooting them do to the mild steel slides. It's seems like everything is still very solid. Was...

      Richland 711 10ga ammunition

      Lol it would look like a really oversized coach gun. And is that the federal grand slam? I was wondering if it could handle buck shot or turkey loads alright. It still has its full length barrels which I assume are full choke. 19.5 stamped on the barrels. I would guess converting it to inches...
