We’ve seen a couple of the beauties come thru from Ruger’s Custom Shop by way of the TALO Distributor and they are gorgeous to look at and a pleasure to shoot. Not intended as a carry gun but one that functions well in that regard the Koenig Ultimate Comp model is meant to be a range runner. She shoots as good as she looks with reloads happing as if by thought because of the magwell mod. Match barrel and flat trigger mean getting accurate hits in the 10 ring are a breeze even for shooters advanced in their age.
Come get one before they are gone!

And so it goes we received another Colt 1911 that eschews the common clone for the full Colt Custom experience. Upon initial inspection the pistol looks like many others, but it’s fundamentality different and requires a closer look for the uninitiated to make the lights go on.
Despite being no longer offered at Colt’s Custom Shop The Gun Room Inc.’s long time relationship with Colt reaps benefits in the form of a one of a kind Colt Custom 1911 worthy of the title.
With features that include; a reverse crown barrel with thick stainless EGW bushing and recoil plug, custom round butt mainspring housing and frame. For sights the Colt wears Novak with gold front and plain black rear, Ed Brown beavertail grip safety, strong side safety lock, 25 LPI checkering with enhanced cut, laser engraved “Rampant Colt” and Colt Custom Shop logo, flat top and serrated slide with border arrow head pattern, grey G10 grips with Colt logo, dehorned, silver 3 hole trigger and last but certainly not least enhanced reliability package.

This Government Model is a Series 70 in 45ACP 5″ barrel blued.
As mentioned above this is a one of a kind Colt Custom Shop and much of the work is no longer available in the Colt Custom Shop. This gun was a multi-year wait to manufacture and receive from Colt and it won’t be offered again in this configuration. Expect to pay more than the big box store clone 1911 that you are thinking about.
The Gun Room Inc. is known for the hard to get exceptional firearms that we feature on our pages here and in the shop.
To inquire about this fine Colt Custom Shop 1911 Government stop by our shop:
Milo is squawking about the new Lionheart Regulus models we got in awhile ago. Made in America, right up the road from us in fact. The Lionheart Industries Alpha Regulus model seems to be all the rage right now for beginners and experts alike.
When I first picked up the Lionheart Industries Regulus I was welcomed with a good fit to my hand, a pleasant metal heft and feel, but my feeble mind was blown by the smoothness of the slide and how easy it was to work the action. Even Milo’s bird claw would be able to work the Lionheart Industries Regulus 9mm action.
You don’t have to know anything about guns to tell the Lionheart Industries Alpha Regulus stacks up to the best. It seems like yesterday when Shaun asked Lionheart to spice up the LH9 for him and wolla! They delivered in spades! Here in my over sized hand sits a thing of beauty and craftmanship that goes bang every time I will it. Having several injuries to my old body has pretty much made me a wheel gunner but now I think I can manage the semi-autos again thanks to Lionheart Industries innovative approach to recoil management and slide cycling.
Did I mention this is a US Made Firearm?
I copied Lionheart Industries’ web text below in their own words.
Thanks to The Gun Room Inc. in Portland for putting one of these beauties in my hand, and thanks to LionheartIndustries for making quality sexy again.
The Regulus Story
Lionheart began importing our LH9-Series pistol in 2011. The LH9 is the civilian version of the K5, which has reliably served as South Korea’s Military service pistol for almost 30 years. In the years since 2011, the LH9 has become synonymous with quality, functionality, and reliability!
However, at Lionheart, our vision has always been greater than simply importing – our dream is to design and produce pistols in the United States!
In 2015 those dreams started to become a reality, as we began development of our all new American-made line, the Regulus! Lionheart is proud to say that the Regulus Platform is designed, sourced, and produced in the USA! While still based on the same battle-proven design of the LH9, each part of the Regulus has been refined into a high-performance pistol. It is the pinnacle of everything that we’ve dreamed of!
The Regulus platform is completely geared towards you, the shooter. Featuring better materials, improved internals, our Tru-Axis™ Precision Barrel, and a modular platform, it is unlike anything you’ve ever shot before! Our unique Double Action + trigger has been perfected, offering a fluid pull, a painless break, and a crisp reset! Upgraded sight, grip, magazine, and Cerakote® options mean that your Regulus will be the Lionheart you’ve been waiting for!
Moving forward, our vision is still the same as it was in 2011 – Exceptional Comes Standard. We believe in freedom, we strongly support the Second Amendment, and we are honored to join the prestigious group of American firearm manufacturers!
Today while the boys were showing some handguns to a couple of U.S. Marines that came in Milo went into the back and came forward with a Colt Delta Elite 10mm 1911. I guess this week Milo is liking the Colt Delta Elite because he starts squawking every time someone tries to put it back away.
The debate over the 1911 VS any other handgun continues today but so many servicemen and women swear by it that it’ll likely go on forever. Speaking of debates when you start talking about bullets and chamberings everything goes out the window. One caliber that seems to be making more than a blip on the bullet radar is the 10mm.
Way up north in Alaska more people are carrying the 10mm as their backup replacing the old reliable 44 Magnum in many cases. The people who jumped on the .40 cal bandwagon have come around and are now snapping up Colt Delta Elites to scratch that power and speed itch.
The Colt Delta Elite 10mm 1911 equates to a very well thought out platform for the 10mm cartridge and the power it holds. People who like a handgun that shoots well and don’t want to compromise by switching to a diminutive caliber love the Colt Delta Elite because it checks all the boxes off.

“Milo loves Diana!” or that’s what he keeps saying, which is weird because Milo is a parrot and the only Diana around here is the Browning Superposed Diana.
This particular shotgun shows in mint condition despite it’s birthday in 1976 over 40 years ago. Featuring full engraving from master engraver Angelo Bee the Belgian Browning Diana Superposed triggers endorphins and dopamine in your brain just to look at it.
Milo isn’t the only one in love with “Diana Goddess Of The Hunt”, anyone who beholds this shotgun covets it.
Don’t wait on this gun, if you want to see it in person stop by The Gun Room Inc. or miss it forever.
Call (503)777-3931 and ask for Warren to setup a viewing of this extra special Belgian Browning Diana Superposed Shotgun.
Remington’s TAC-14 Marine Magnum strikes a balance between power, performance and resistance to the elements. Nickel plating on all metal surfaces ensures you have the power of Remington’s 870 platform in an all weather take anywhere firearm. The Remington 870’s action is often stated as legendary, for many of the World’s police and military organizations that title was hard earned on the battlefields.
The Remington 870 TAC-14 Marine Magnum offers unsurpassed protection for home, truck, boat or other application where tight quarters are the norm. Featuring Magpul furniture and Raptor grip you’ll have no problem navigating any situation.
Long before the Glock 19 and the 9mm movement of the 80’s there lived another Combat Pistol with the designation of Model 19. For decades if you were a gun fighter you carried a model S&W Model 19 Combat Magnum, there simply wasn’t any substitute. Many other pistols over the years have borrowed very heavily on the Combat Magnum or as it was later known the S&W Model 19. None of the copy cat guns ever matched the S&W Model 19’s accuracy or stopping power of the full house .357 Magnum. It’s still rated as a higher than 90% one shot stop against a bad guy in a world saturated with 9mm multi shot fails.
Bad guys get away or live after being shot 13 times with today’s modern 9mm handguns so one has to wonder if more capacity is better than the wheel guns of yesterday.
Smith & Wesson created a legend when they created the Combat Magnum, and many of those early guns still exist today albeit at a premium to collectors. Features such as pinned and recessed barrels and cylinders are common place on the S&W right up to the 80’s. A quality S&W Model 19 Combat Magnum in it’s original box will demand a nice price in good condition but they are well worth it.
The Gun Room Inc. usually has one or two Combat Magnums in stock but as the trend to acquire good guns continues in America they only become more collectible and valuable.
This week Milo has taken a shine to the Steyr AUG A3 Bullpup in .223 caliber. Some of you might recognize the Steyr AUG from SciFi and action movies, and some of you might have seen one in passing and thought “Cool gun!”.
The Gun Room Inc. has the new Steyr AUG MUD Stock High Rail
The family of Steyr weapons goes back to before the 1400’s so they know a thing or two about tools of the trade.
Many variations of the Steyr AUG have been fielded by over 30 countries and several states in over 8 wars and countless conflicts. Battle proven is an understatement when talking about the Steyr AUG and it’s variants. The popularity of the Steyr AUG meant it was only a matter of time before there was a civilian version of it available to purchase. The civilian version looks exactly like the military weapon but that’s where the similarities end. The Steyr AUG A3 civilian legal version can’t shoot in full auto like it’s military counterpart, only semi-auto.
In a pro’s hands these “bullpups” are handy in vehicles, close quarters, and maritime missions because their diminutive size over all makes maneuvering tight and restricted areas a breeze. The strength of the design is the receiver, barrel and bolt all fit into the stock allowing for a full sized rifle to take up less overall length and size than a collapsed m4.
Swapping out the barrel to engage targets at medium to long range one merely has to lock the bolt back, push a button and twist out the barrel assembly to swap it for a longer one. This ability to quick change into a designated marksman rifle with the push of a button means that the operator can conduct missions that are ever changing without having to carry extra weapons for the purpose.
In Milo’s eyes it’s just a cool looking gun that’s really fun to shoot with friends. Some argue that Steyr was very likely the originator of the plastic or as they market to today’s youth, “polymer gun”.
Give Milo’s pick of the week the once over in our showroom and see what the Steyr AUG brings to the table.
