    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.

    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!

    shihan was able to get a ParaOrd based open pistol for a steal! Gawa ng First Option

    Eye cutter,

    Saan mabibili yung egw extend mag. catch button?
     
  11. 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.
