Mga kapitbahay! Good morning.

I have come across in this forum the term "OPEN GUN". I surmise that is has something to do with 1911s. But what does it mean exactly?

Maraming salamat.

another meaning of open gun is "close your eyes and open your wallet";)
You'll like it here, maraming pro shooters dito and they have nice open guns.

hindi ko pa kinikwenta magkano na nagagastos ko, but it will most likely cost that much!

anyway, my open pistol has been an ongoing project since 1998 so hindi mabigat sa bulsa. i bought and saved the parts when i had extra cash.

Jun, mga ganun nga. Ako isang taon lang inabot. Every month bumibili ako ng parts hanggang sa ma-kumpleto ko. :)

Advice ko get the best that your money can buy so that you won't have to upgrade later. ;f

if you start buying and saving premium parts now at today's prices, aabutin ka na 180-200k for an open gun!

Open gun simply means... open lagi ang bulsa mo para mabuo ang baril na yan.LOL> Kiddingly aside, yes, most open guns are in 1911 format and in .38 super caliber for hi-ammo capacity purposes. I have not seen yet an open gun in .45 caliber since lugi ang shooter sa recoil and ammo capacity. There are also open guns that are not in 1911 format like tanfoglio and even glock. Try to browse at the web makikita mo dre. :cool:

Gandang umaga sa lahat!

Meron bang "semi" open gun na 1911 yung wala ng scope? Wala na rin mga butas yung slide and barrel? Yung 1911 na stainless na super ganda? How much will this be?

Many thanks to all for sharing info.

Exactly, mikol, exactly!
Super ganda. Magkano yan?

i wont switch to open, not much competition with it.

I will use it as a training tool and fun tool. Shoot 100 rounds in practice, then switch to my standard gun

McO, I may keep it this way. i wont do anything but fix the trigger immediately and put the cmore in. maybe a magwell and plus mag pads

If i enjoy open, i will put in a comp and shoot major 9. If the brass breaks easyly i will rebore the chamber to 38 super. and get a big stick.

about the prices of the trigger group, i dont know anymore since its with me already from my old pistol. and some are just extra parts.

I'm guessing it'll go a lot higher. My friend put together his STI for about 140k. ;Q

whoa..! ;P in this case, i might re-evaluate my plan of using an S_I/SPS unit for a custom built competition gun. considering that dollar-peso rate might go up $1-P60(i am just exaggerating thou) due to our country's current situation.:(

ok guys you've made your point already.;g
had decided to just put on hold my plan of building a competition gun using S_I parts.
cant use it anyway until the mid of 2007, so what's the rush. besides if fakes S_I's parts are circulating anywhere in the country, i might just get myself a RIA super 38. and start from that unit.;f

as to mc_o's opinion, SAM slide is better and he is right.
but the problem of SAM is that, their frame only support's standard non-ramped barrels. which is a dis-advantage siguro compare to Armscor or RIA.
sabagay, you can always bring the frame to your gunsmith and let him do the cutting of the frame to make it accomodate a ramp supported barrel. bahala na, hintayin ko nalang sa December pagdating ko dyan. kung ano ang mabili ko yun na gagawin kung base for my competition gun.;g
