haha! yeah, that and the cigars! Anyways, the rig came in today and I took it off long enough to take some pics. Don't we all just love playing guns? lol

I finished up the rear sight as well:



The rig has a retention strap. Helps when I'm galloping across the prairie.



And here is the whole manifestation:



By no means has the obsession ended. I'm now in the process of putting together a "new" looking 1911.

ok, I've shown you mine, now I want to see yours!

Cheers,

OH

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That's awesome, but i've always heard that the original 1911s were painful to shoot without a glove, haven't had the chance to try it out myself so I really want to know how it shoots?

I haven't had this girl out yet but I used to shoot my original 1911 regularly at the bullseye club. (single unsupported hand) Always seemed pretty comfy to me I think having a really strong grip keeps them from behaving badly. (the guns I mean).

Maybe you're referring to the infamous "hammer bite". It seems to only affect a smaller percentage of shooters and you should be able to tell by gripping an unloaded 1911 with the hammer back to see where the flesh could get pinched by the hammer as it is cocked. Personally, never been bit.

Okay thanks, I've always wondered about that

Anyone interested in a build similar to this like I am? Ebay: 1911 parts kits. A bunch of unmarked parts, maker, but they're of the classic styling. Kits minus frame
