Before you start messing about with the internals, buy a book or two and learn the ropes. I have a copy of "The Colt .45 Automatic, A shop manual" by Jerry Kuhnhausen. It made me realize that building or "improving" the 1911 takes more than good intentions and a Dremel.

I would add: Some parts may require fitting by a competent gunsmith.
In more than a few instances, "Drop in parts" might be a bit optimistic.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

Well I think a kick ass match shooting pistol would be cool but no holo sights like some do

Well, if y'all look to the left there under my handle you can see the SW1911 I bought last year. I have never mounted anything on the rail and I don't intend to, but when I bought it I figured it looked OK with the rail on it. I actually like the way it looks. One advantage of having a rail is it adds just a little bit of weight to the gun, changes the balance slightly and I think it helps me recover from recoil a little bit faster.

And just one other thought - if lasers and high tech lights were available 100 years ago, I gotta wonder if the original 1911 would still be without a rail.

Looking for 1911 Frame, not picky about brand. Any color.
