We will as soon as both 1911s are finished.
I appreciate JD's grace in slowing down his presentation.
I'm sure Big Thunder II is complete but he must be giving Fenrir additional time to get back from my smith!
Thanks bro but you deserve the right to show you finished first! (I'm NOT
conceding! Just giving due props.)
There should be no doubt that JD and I are in total agreement with respect to our loyalty to the 1911 pattern handgun.BUT
, as you can tell JD and my style tastes are a near full spectrum apart. I think that's what makes this build-off so great.
With the exception of the die-in-the-wool poly gunners (God bless them) this little FTF contest has broad appeal with some element that most everyone can find useful.
I think after completion of the build-off, JD plans to clean up the thread to expunge nonsensical posts. I think we have, to date, given a great deal of useful information to all members/visitors.
It is my hope (and vested interest) that we do not rush to finish this thread. The issues we have encountered are real life and thus, provide more relevant, empirical data, to all whom may be desirous to attempt a like modification to their own 1911.
