PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING ->     IMPORTANT MESSAGE     <- PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING
Please note that the forums in this category are to be used to ask questions or to show us pistols from these manufacturers. They can also be used to ask questions about the parts of a particular pistol from one of these manufacturers, as long as the question relates to the original parts.

  • * If your pistol malfunctions and you want to ask for help on how to troubleshoot it, post your question in the "Gunsmithing and Refinishing" forum, not in this one.
  • * If you want to ask questions about after-market parts, these questions should go in the "Parts - Grips" forum, not in the manufacturers forums.
  • * If you want to ask questions about after-market magazines, these questions should go in the "Magazines" forum, not in these forums.
  • * If you want to ask questions about holsters, those questions should go in the"Holsters" forum, not in these forums.
  • * If you want to ask questions about conversion kits, those questions should go in the "Rimfire Corner" forum, not these forums.
  • * If you want to ask questions about which ammo to use with your pistol, those questions should be posted in the "Ammo" forum, not these forums.

Messages with questions for after-market parts, magazines, holsters, conversion kits, ammo etc. will be moved to the proper forum and a warning will be issued.

IMPORTANT: In Photo-threads, each post should contain at least one picture of your own. Quoting a previous post, does not make your post compliant with that requirement. Photo threads are NOT for chatting.

Do not use this area for USGI or other pre-WWII pistols, see section below.

  15. Use this area to show us pistols built by professional custom gunsmiths, or to ask question about such pistols.
    Not for asking general gunsmithing or "how to" questions, or showing home-built pistols.
    Use the Gunsmithing forum for that.

  16. This is the forum you should use, if you want to ask a question for a contemporary manufacturer, not listed above.
    Do not use this forum for custom pistols (there is a special forum for them) or non-1911 firearms.

  17. This is the proper forum to use, if you want to ask a question related to more than one of the above manufacturers.
    For example "Help me select between X, Y and Z".
    Only 1911 firearm questions are allowed.

  18. As of May of 2011, discussion of ALL 1911-style rimfire pistols and rimfire conversion kits should be discussed here, except the Colt Ace and Service Ace pistols and conversion kits, which should be discussed in the Collectors area.
    This now includes complete rimfire pistols of all makes, as well as rimfire conversion kits.
