    He could neck it down into something better, something Jack Connor would approve of.

    Is it @Zee that likes the larger bolt knobs? I just threaded this handle and made this knob today for a customers build.

    Bought my daughter an EC9 to replace her bodyguard for CC.  A while I was at it, bought a RIA 9mm commander size 1911.  Baby bro to my 10mm. Looks just like it except it has a rail.  Hope to shoot it saturday.

    I keep being tempted by RIA 1911s.

    Love the 10mm i have.  Been 100% in the 3 years I've had it.  Hope the 9mm is as well.  They are well made.

    Thanks guys. It's surprising to look at the prices online for a comparable bolt knob. $50- 80, pffft. Not happening. I like custom one off stuff anyhow. And I'm also in agreement about the 10mm. Ive talked myself out of owning one thus far but don't know how long I'll be able to fend off the idea.

    Great!  You finally get me to agree, kicking and screaming, along with you with the damned Glocks and NOW you start being "tempted" by 1911s?!?!?!?  Lord I need to start drinking more..... :rage:

    You’re safe. While tempted, I won’t give into the temptation. Makes zero sense to get one.

    I’ve given in to just using Kinetic Research Group bolt knobs for Remington 700s. Cheap, easy, and just the right size.

    I had a RIA 10mm for a short time. I don't remember if I ever fired it, but I did keep the RMR that was on it and that kicked me down the MRDS handgun rabbit hole. My modest 1911 collection (STI Trojan 9mm, SA TRP .45) does it for me, although I have been tempted by the new Staccato (formerly STI) P-DUO.

    My most recent firearm acquisition was a Holosun 507K that is going to end up mounted on a Glock 43X or 48 MOS.

    The only one I’d give into is a 6” in 10mm and that’s cost prohibitive when compared to the 6” Glock in 10mm I already have.

    Yeah, the Glock 20 is a no brainer, especially if you can get access to the LEO discount/package.

    So, just to let you know there are some that will lead you astray here. I’ll set you straight. Just one thing, you ever been to a Turkish prison? 
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    The Mods seem to be slipping. Rules are:  When you get a new gun, you post a photo, or, it doesn't exist and/or a $5.00 fine. Your lucky, cost of fine has not kept up with inflation.

    Picked up a .36 Colt Cartridge Works bullet mold from Eras Gone and a paper cartridge former.  Cast a handful of bullets at work today.  I've been casting round balls for my 1851 & 1861 Navy pistols, but want to give this a try.
