I'm going to attempt to build my first 1911, well it's a 2011. I've researched all my parts and ordered based off of what I want in a limited 3 gun pistol. A sti/brazos 2011. I'm pretty confident I can handle the slide to frame fit, I think the barrel to slide and frame will be a little tricky but I'm not sure about the thumb safety. That may be the hardest part for me. My frame has the wilson/nolan cut out to match my barsto barrel. But here's what I'm hoping to get. After the build is done I'll have it armor coated black with stainless controls.
