    Re: RWS ammunition

    It shoots just fine in my Amigo, so does PMC, Blazer Brass and Herter's. The only one didn't chamber was American eagle and I bought 500 rd.s of the stuff. Works fine in my Colt Sr70 but doesn't...
  4. Re: Has Anyone used the Kimber 1-piece recoil spring

    From the photo it doesn't look like it will work. Just get the heavier Wolfe recoil spring 22-24lb. There a link on one of my other posts which one to get or buy the calibration pack.

    Re: ACII springs and frame marks

    As to your recoil spring questions. AC recoil springs are questionable at times in their reliability and length of service. If the slide is not returning to battery than it may either be a badly...
  6. Re: Mi Amigo. It's all done! No more $'s going in this one.

    I did, got the mag for 18.00 after offering 16.00, with free fast shipping. I have a small stash of those 117gr Agulla's and they shoot nicely, use in home only. Cor-bon JHP 185's and 230 Federal...
  7. Re: Mi Amigo. It's all done! No more $'s going in this one.

    For old eyes the XS are great! When you say you don't use the crimson trace at the range do you mean and indoor or out door? too much daylight? I had a post up on the 1911 side of the FALfiles ...
  8. Mi Amigo. It's all done! No more $'s going in this one.

    Okay, I love this piece & believe I am done accessorizing. I was going to buy some fancy walnut grips to dress up Mi Amigo but I liked my Crimson Trace so well on my Govt. Colt Series 70 I had to get...
  9. Re: Anyone have an Amigo and Colt 1911 Officer's they can take apart and compare?

    Talk to the factory gunsmith at Colorado Gunsmithing, forgot his name in another thread I wrote a year or so back. Anyway, he's very savvy in the ways of these Amigos. I gave up on a checkered Alloy...

    Re: Just bought an Amigo. Lots of issues.

    Brownell's makes a 1911 Grip Bushing Staking Tool, most gunsmiths worth a darn have one as it's a simple fix. Or, buy one and have it for all your 1911 friends Bushings come loose at times but it's...
  11. Re: Anyone replace the guide rod and reverse plug

    Wolff makes 2 different diameter springs for the offices and other full guide rod versions. Read the literature. Proper one for our .330" guide rod is...

    Brownell's had Lacqur stix in red, black, gold, silver, yellow and white. If not can be found elsewhere on a search for Lacqur Stix I believe. Other than extractors not fitting well and the recoil...

    Re: My SR1911 Commander

    How do you like the Galco? Is the holster stiff enough for plenty of use. I want to attend Front Sight this winter and they require a holster like that but they do a lot of draw and fire work and...

    Re: Grind off and re-finish...

    Welcome to the forum. As deep as the markings are you would do damage to the slide. If you don't mind my asking, if you didn't like it with the banner why did you buy it? The Citadel and ATI's...

    Re: My new MAC Bobcut

    That is a pretty piece. I would like one of those so I could put the slide/barrel onto my Amigo and make it an Amigo+. I love mix and match. I guess the canted MS housing hides the bulge a bit better...

    Re: New guy with a few questions.

    Welcome skipnall, if you're Amigo's working spot on don't change a thing for now. Make sure it will function with your carry ammo. If the time ever comes and you need a recoil spring Wolfe sells to...

    Re: New Amigo owner, some problems too.

    You still have not answered the question of how you're getting it on the bigger rod??? The flat wire isn't an issue for me.

    Re: New Amigo owner, some problems too.

    I can't for the life of me figure out how you intend to run a .250" diameter spring on a .330" diameter Rod. Can't be done, the rods diameter is bigger than the inside diameter of the spring....
