You must have a nice collection of firearms.

Citadel 1911's?

I have been eyeing the 3.5" Officer Model. For the money it could be a good little gun. Yes, I know the finish is a little rough but the reviews i have read give them good marks as a shooter. Anyone got one of these or a Rock Island (both made by Armscor). Thanks.

Rock Island!

I've had my tactical model for about 1.5 yrs and ~2000rds. 100% reliability so far. Even through my CHL class a couple of weeks ago.



I don't know much about the citadel 1911s, but I've read enough about the short barrelled models and their weird barrel mechanics to make me leary.

Because having an ineffective gun is better than having no gun, when it comes so concealed carry, I generally have this guy in my back pocket whenever I am in a CCW-friendly state:



Here's a size comparison with a Glock 26:


And here it is in its little pocket holster:

Those little Seecamps are far from ineffective. It'll get the job done!

I thought about buying a Rorhbaugh or something like it, but then I tried to hold it in my big meat hooks - I could only get one finger on the grip (the other on the trigger. As much as I like small pocket pistols, many of them are just too small.

I do okay with my Beretta 21A though.

Two of my current projects

Here are two that I'm working on in my Gunsmithing course.

This started out as a 1917 Danzig marked Mauser. It was in pretty bad shape, so it wasn't a collectable to start
with. I re-barreled it with a Shilen 1-10 twist 6 mm barrel, and chambered it for 6mm-.284. I'm glad I put a Vais
muzzle brake on it because it really helps when you're pushing a 6mm bullet at around 3000 fps. I just finished
the stock this last semester, and I'll have it blued next summer.




This was the other project for this last semester:



It started out as a bag of parts, and by the end of the semester it was a functioning 1911. It's a Nighthawk
Customs frame & slide, with Nighthawk & other parts inside.

I've got two other projects going as well; I'm restoring a 1917 Mk VI .455 Webley and a 1984 .22 cal Stevens
Favorite.

Why a muzzle brake on a 6 mm (.243)? Unless it was part of a graded exercise at school. There's no real recoil, even with a 120 gr. bullet, and all you're going to do is upset the folks next to you at the range.

Very nice man. It's hard to find good gunsmiths these days. I often end up doing my own work but some of the specialty tools get a bit expensive and even though I have a lathe I'm not at a level that I'd be willing to do head space adjustments or any critical metal work.
