Converting Old Browning Model A-5s

Newer versions of this famous shotgun use roll pins instead of screws to hold certain action parts. Here’s how to convert early Auto-5s.

Glock Mods: An M1911 Man Branches Out

I’ve worked with the 1911 for many years, and sometimes that experience has been helpful with other pistols, such as the Browning Hi-Power, for example. Sometimes the differences between pistols are hard to spot, and other times we find similarities between handguns that at first seem very different. Another example: If you can work on the Savage 1910, you can work on the Astra 400, and you won’t be confused by the H&K P7M8. But the Glock? Ah, the Glock is an altogether different creature. Sometimes my 1911-based reasoning produces positive results with the Glock, and other times it does not. With the Glock so popular with law-enforcement and now proving itself in competition—winning the first top-class award at IPSC—we’re going to see more and more Glocks turned in for improvement. And at the very least, we should be familiar with the similarities and the differences between the Glock and “old Slabsides.”

(GunReports.com) — Roberts Defense is introducing a line of 1911 custom-built firearms chambered in .45 ACP, offering a multi-tiered selection for law enforcement, competitors and for personal and home-defense use.

All frames and slides are machined from forgings, feature match-grade barrels and are outfitted with VZ Grips and target-quality Kensight gun sights. Roberts Defense currently offers thirteen models in three tiers, the Super Grade, Operator, and Recon Series, that can be custom-built to meet your specific shooting needs.

“Whether you depend on a Model 1911 pistol for competitions, to guard your family, or to carry while you protect and serve,” Rob Unger, president of Roberts Defense said, “all of our parts are hand-fitted with the utmost attention to detail. We purposely build a limited amount of firearms to fit and function flawlessly, while never compromising, and making our high-quality product available at a reasonable price.”

Each Roberts Defense pistol is issued with a checklist the firearm must pass before it is sold, your assurance that it meets the stringent tests required to meet the company’s “never compromise” standard.

Roberts Defense was founded in 2011 and is located in Oshkosh, WI, manufacturing a line of affordable and customized .45 ACP 1911s. Each firearm is hand built by a stable of talented gunsmiths using 100% American made quality components. Each firearm comes with a lifetime transferable warranty in a tactical soft case and accompanying gun lock.
