I own a few different 1911s, Springfield Armory, Para Ordnance, and Colt. No matter how much I shoot and love my non Colt 1911s, I have a special place in my heart for the Colt MKIV Series 80 and Gold Cup Series 70.
How about posting info about...

Does anyone here have experience with a Specter Gear Tactical Thigh Holster? The few reviews I found said they were good.

While shooting my Remington 1911 R1 today, I noticed that sparks were coming out of the ejector port when the shell was ejected.

I have a buddy who swears by Chip McCormick power mags. Has anyone had any experience with these? They're a bit pricey, but if they work as advertised then what the hell. I've tried dozens of "mil-spec" welded bottom mags marked "Colt", and they're all hit and miss with the feeding problems...

Then this morning, while returning home from...
I am new to the board, but I have lurked for hours in the past looking for info. I just bought a new Kimber Pro Carry ii. The firearm feels solid and is a pretty good fit for my large hands although I am in the middle of retraining my trigger finger not to over reach.
