Let's See Those 1911's

I was going to order a Rock River 1911 but this was in the shop and it saved me a few hundred dollars over a base model RR. 

You crushed that deal, brother - you did well.  :thumbup:

I only have 3 🙁 top to bottom 

Springfield operator long slide 10mm- sweet shooter, kinda big to carry and haven’t found a holster yet. I have used a Yaqui slide with success but the draw is long as poop

Kimber eclipse custom II - shoots good,kinda finicky on cheap plinking ammo but eats self defense stuff. This I  carry if carrying 1911. Puts holes in my shirts, this thing is sharp edged and needs dehorned.

Colt rail gun - best shooter I have. I love this thing and is what I let people shoot to experience the 1911 trigger. Series 80 safety removed, grip safety pinned, ambi thumb safety changed to single side. I don’t carry it often due to safeties because I figure if something goes south they’ll take it and want to know why the safeties are missing.

Just complete gorgeous execution of the most perfect design ever invented, and from an awesome perfectionist, Bill Wilson... 

 

His original profession was watchmaker, probably where the perfectionist part came from. His guns are amazing!

I like that every one of those are in proper carry-configuration, for a 1911 - chambered, hammer cocked, safety on.  You're one down-click with your draw thumb away from instant single-action Perfection.  :thumbup:

There are no nazis like that here - that's the proper way to carry a 1911, right there.  That's the condition that a 1911 needs to be in, all the time. :hail:

Same here, if it's not in the safe it's loaded and ready to go!:thumbup:

Yep. A standard rule around my place. If you pick something up....expect that it's loaded and ready.

Holy Shiit, my Kimber Desert Warrior is famous!  @DNP pointed this out to me tonight.  Joe Perkins made my custom grips, and I never knew it's on his website.  That's badass.  I had these made in 2011 or 2012 - whenever the second trip out here was, that I met up with @edgecrusher - on his second trip out that we linked up on, I went to Tombstone with him and fam, and Big Mike, for a Cowboy Action Shoot.  That's when Greg peer-pressured the fuk outta me to get this piece of wood from Joe Perkins, and make it into grips for this gun...   :laffs:

That's the pic from his website - it's right here, just scroll down to number 169 in this gallery...  :thumbup:

Awesome find, Dirk!!!   :hail:

That is badass brother 👍

This is pretty cool, and I didn't know it - I guess the official name of the wood is Amboyna Burl.  I just picked that block of wood because it looked badass - well, actually Greg picked it for me...   :laffs:

I click over to Joe's main page, and he's got info on his "Rare and Unique" woods, and the damn Amboyna Burl is the third one down his list.  It didn't cost me this much a decade ago, but I still think it was around (or a little over) $150.  Pretty damn cool.   :thumbup:

Just finished up a 1911A1, Advanced Tactical 80% CS frame, Sarco "If you want cheap, we got cheap" build kit. Lots of fitting. Only thing I didn't use out of the kit was  the sear spring, just couldn't do it...

Need to find a slide stop not so shiny, other then that not bad for a $400.00 build

Next one will be pretty. 10mm long slide all cut mostly fitted just waiting on a new barrel, first one little out of spec. 

Sneak peek

In my (wet)dreams I’m able to do this kind of stuff. I know I dream weird shiit. I told the wife I had a really wild sex dream too bad she wasn’t in it- she punched me. :evil:

Did it involve a 1911?

If I keep building AR's I would need yet another safe,  1911's are a bit harder to build but I can keep squeezing them in until maximum densityis achived.

This is the one that got me started, helping a bro do his bobtail commander. He used the matrix jig and a complete kit from 1911 builders. Very complete, high quality parts, slide nicer then the one on my my E-Series Smith, very minor fitting required.

I keep telling him to shorten up the dust cover, but he refuses.
