So, I'm building a 1911...

Thanks again fellers.  I ran another couple hundred rounds through it this past Saturday, it's running awesome now.  Sights suck ass.  Trigger is among the best I have fingered.

I assemble two Wilson Combat framed 1911's this year for a customer. They turned out great , I got lessons from two different gunsmiths on mating the slide to the frame. Patience is the key also acquired some 10k grit paper and 5k grit paper for the trigger work, that make a big difference. Also getting the mainspring right and the link size is critical. But when its done right it just feels awesome.

Its going to take a while to collect all the parts for my build,that should be fun.

I'm on another build now, have it basically functional, but it still needs a lot more fine tuning before I'm range ready.  After I work it out at the range I'll have a shop coat it for me.
