  1. I'm reasonably handy , and I do work on old cars, but that is a far stretch to hand filing and fitting little 1911 parts....
  2. all very good points, thanks. I will do some more research, but plan to try a few small things this fall.
  3. 1911 guys - what types of basic 1911 things do you tackle yourself versus sending out to a pro? What is reasonable for a non-pro to do? For example do you tune/ adjust extractor, fit a thumb safety or slide release ? file-fit a new barrel? did you have formal instruction or self-taught? I have the greatest respect for professionals, and I don't mind paying to have it done right. I do dread sending a 1911 out for a 20 minute job, as it might take months to get back. And I have never seen a 1911 'drop-in' part, pretty sure those don't exist. For example this week I put a S&A magwell on a FrankenColt 38 super with a lot of sentimental value. Nice part, functionally it works great, but I have a small gap on bottom (compared to another professionally fit and blended magwell) that annoys me now. But I also can't imagine sending it out just for that. And I have looked at some 1911 armorer courses, but reality is I am not looking to spend a week building a 1911 from scratch. Is there a course out there that can teach me basic common stuff in a day or weekend? Thanks, Tim
  4. Wow - I thought I had closed this during Holidays because I was out of town so much. I actually still have both pistols.
  5. Thank you both ! - I have seen that match at Strategic Edge, but I didn't want to show up 'completely clueless' and slow up a match for everyone... Thanks, Tim
  6. Is there a local " Intro to USPSA pistol "class here in middle TN? I seem to remember one (maybe at Strategic Edge) last year, but I haven't seen anything recently. thanks, Tim
  7. For sale - Winchester 70 Heavy Varmint HV in 308 set up for High Power XTC or other match - Middle TN Winchester Model 70 'push feed' heavy varmint 26" stainless barrel 1/12" twist. Set up as NRA High Power Across the Course (XTC) match rifle, based on Precision Shooter magazine's Dec 1996 " High Power on a Budget" article by Fred Barker. Professional drilled & tapped for XTC / palma match sights, professional machined stripper-clip slot, bolt extension, and weight added to HS Precision buttstock to improve offhand balance. A really capable XTC rifle that I dragged to many matches as a spare but rarely ever shot, eventually started bringing an identical built M70 HV in 223 as a loaner for the short-course / Junior matches. This isn't a safe queen, it shows honest match wear, but still a real nice rifle. I have an EGW extended F class style scope rail that can go with it no cost, if you want to scope it for hunting or matches. I have match sights (Warner, Swenson, Redfield) that could also go with it, but that would be additional $$ funds. I also have a couple McMillan A-3 stocks fixed or adjustable that could be included for additional funds. I don't have any groups, it was a spare so was zeroed with my primary rifle ammo. These are known to be good shooters and supposedly have Wilson stainless barrels. asking $700 OBO Face to face in middle TN (Nolensville / Brentwood / Cools Springs) area, TN resident / prefer TN carry permit and Bill of Sale. I am not looking for any trades right now, but I would consider the right Nightforce NXS /ATACR scope, or Glock 34. Thanks, Tim
  8. yes, I had actually forgotten about it but still for sale - PM sent
  9. WTS two Colts - Colt S80 CCO & original Colt S70 Gov - Middle TN. I have two Colts for sale: 1. Colt Series 80 Enhanced flat top Two-Tone Light Weight Concealed Carry Officer ( CCO ) 45acp (factory matt stainless commander slide & lightweight aluminum officer frame). Used, no box or papers. I am not sure which grips are correct - probably Colt wood with gold medallion? Factory mild dehorn of sharp edges, matt finish, sights, beavertail, hammer, trigger etc. I did have sharp butt corner slightly rounded (a "baby bobtail" to you 1911 guys) so doesn't dig into my hand. Used, has obvious marks in the light, and could use a detail cleaning, but still in my opinion a very nice Colt carry 1911. asking $750 OBO 2. Colt Series 70 Blue 45acp Government 5" barrel. No box or papers. serial "70G" is 1973 in my database. Story was nightstand drawer entire life, clearly not a safe queen and you can see the marks on it but still a nice old Colt. Could definitely use a detail cleaning, appears all original and un-altered to me. Please note there appears to be original machine 'crosshatch' on feed-ramp, something I had heard of but never seen before this pistol. The cat hair is at no extra cost, not sure how that got in picture. Asking $775 OBO. Face to face in Middle TN (Nolensville / Brentwood / Cools Springs) area, prefer TN carry permit and Bill of sale. I am not really looking for any trades right now, but I would consider the right Winchester 70 Featherweight in a hunting caliber. Thanks, Tim UPDATE Nov 14th - both still available but "on hold" while I am unavailable until after Thanksgiving - Thanks.
