    45 Super have any of you converted a 1911?

    Super, thanks! I know the STI Spartan V is a souped up Rock Island Armory frame, slide, barrel and bushing with all STI internal components. Frankly I think they might have been selling them too cheap and they just needed a way get more profit into the corporation by creating a new model. The fit and finish on my STI is first rate and the sights are great! If I can make a few minor inexpensive modifications and approach 10MM performance for a few dollars, I have a pair off.45s that will never need or see this kind of upgrade. I just don’t want to get caught in a situation where a bullet could bounce off a thick skull and leave me a torn up corpse. It happened in the Jackson area last hunting season, a real wake up call for all guides and hunters alike.
  2. My son has been after me to get a 10mm 1911 with a 6” barrel for a sidearm for elk hunting in bear country. With my new lease in life with my new ankle, 2020 looks like my first real elk hunt in Wyoming! (Recovery is going well, and for the first time in 18-20 years I am basically pain free! I still have more work in front of me, but all looks good so far...) I have a 5” STI Spartan V with very few rounds down the tube. From what I have read so far, a hard cast lead bullet in the 200 grain range is as effective or more so than the 10mm for more energy and slightly less muzzle velocity. If spring changes are all that is called for, this sounds like a win-win for a powerful personal protection piece that a Grizzly Bear would not be a problem if that encounter ever incurred. (Not to say that a bad guy would fare any differently...) Any thoughts and recommendations on the cartridge and replacement springs, or should I just contact STI for their recommendations since it’s their pistol? T

    Oh My, How Far We've Come

    How true all of this is. It is maddening, sad and just downright infuriating that our schools have brainwashed the last several generations of our children. Krushev (spelling?) was right in the early 60s when he pounded his shoe on the desk at the UN and declared we will bury you! Patience has always need a virtue of the communists...and we helped them do it!

    Tick, tock Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Pancreatic cancer is “normally” a death sentence. Amazing how the MSM downplays the serious nature and clinical outcomes of individuals who are unfortunately impacted by this awful disease. While I abhor all that RBG stands for and her relentless leftist interpretations of the Constitution, I wish no ill will on anyone. But for God’s sake, give it up and retire gracefully. Let POTUS get busy filling this seat and bring more balance to the court.

    Binary trigger

    John: You’re dead on here. Another dangerous toy designed to stick another finger in the eye of the ATF. How in the hell can anyone “safely” operate a firearm set up in this configuration? It flys In the face of all basic firearm safety training I’ve ever been through. You remove your finger to stop firing... When are we going to stop spoon feeding the left with crazy gimmicks that serve no real purpose or benefit. If you want a fully automatic firearm, pay the piper, get a license, pay the tariff, and go about your business without bring attention to your self... I know I’ll get crucified for saying this, but enough is enough. One of my ex-employees has a binary trigger on a 9mm AR pistol and he never could give me a straight answers as to what it did for him except to waste more ammunition...

    open carry is really stupid.

    Ah, James Whitmore in Battleground! Thanks, now it all makes sense! One of the best of all time drill sessions in film. I think I read that the soldiers in that part of the film were real 101St Airborne troops.
