    I just added three Oleg Volk photos to the Valtro gallery.




    I can now fire 8 shots rapid fire into a fist sized target at 10 yards. Training helps, but the Valtro gives me confidence.

    Shoot straight,

    My Bushing is blued.

    I kind of like a silver bbl and a black bushing - I think it makes that barrel hole look extra big :)

    I may try and keep the bushing blued even if I get the whole gun hard chromed - not sure if that will look dumb...

    Nice pix...

    Oleg didn't like the chromed out bushing... made taking pictures difficult. Same with the trigger - but he's thinking like a photographer, so I can't blame him.

    I like the 'bling bling' on the business end... form and function. Maybe I'll have it blued, though.... to make Oleg's camera happy.

    Sven, Oleg didn't like dark colored tarantulas for the same reason. "Lighter ones show up better."


    Love the Valtro. Sweeeeet trigger!

    Still trying to amortize the purchase with pics, Sven?

    That Valtro is very reliable, has great trigger, sights worked much better than expected (the "rib" top of the slide helps) and overall worked as well as a full custom 1911. I'd carry it...except that I am too cheap to buy one.

    My Colt GM shot side by side with Valtro had a weird malfunction on the last shot (cartridge ended up sitting on top of the follower, with slide locked back) which was traced to weak springs in the ancient Pachmeyer 7-rd magazines. Any suggestions on getting replacements?

    Love that countersunk end on the slide stop pin. Done even nicer than the one on my Professional. They make disassembly annoying, but it sure is one trick detail! :cool:

    All the TN people got to see why we are all frothing at the mouth when someone talks about 1911s...

    Oleg's comments make me want to start a "Buy Oleg a Valtro" thread... ;)

    I can see I'm going to need to give Oleg some trigger time on my Professional and my Baer, as well as my lightly tuned Stainless Loaded and V-10. He probably just hasn't spent enough time with good 1911's yet... :cool:

    Professional was very accurate but its grip feels like a file! I'd like to try your other variants though.

    Valtro needs that Tucker HF1 -- that holster makes my "Strong" brand belt slide feel cheap by comparison...though it wasn't.

    That's kinda the point. ;) Sure, you may leave DNA samples on the gun when you shoot it, but it ain't gonna shift in your grip. :D

    That's a solution looking either for a problem or for an idle masochist ;)

    ...or maybe Oleg needs some callouses on his mitts. ;)
