    Hey guys, This is my first 1911 and I'm in love with it. I just acquire this pistol 3 weeks ago and noticed that on the Punisher movie (the one with Travolta) the main actor was using a custom Colt .45 1911 with a compensator and chrome parts. Well needless to say that I wanted to do that too so I did :)

    Went on eBay got e a compensator and went to Lowes and bought some sand paper 1000, 1500, 2000 and 2500 and started to polish away.

    The end result.

    Waiting on some punisher grips to be added later.

    I understand that the compensator is no big help it is just for looks ;)

    I didn't think I was going to like it, what a difference the grip makes.

    The grips definitely made a difference but I wanted the skull in chrome but couldn't find it.

    The compensator was $75.00 on eBay but pretty soon I'll be able to make my own ;)

    Just a thought-
    "polish" the mag release, MSH pin & get a set of SS grip screws to finish it up :cool:
    Mine is kind of reversed-

    I've got some AlumaGrips with the Punisher symbol on them. Anything AlumaGrips makes will last as long as the gun does. I'm not certain but I think they have an option for a chromed punisher skull on their grips.

    You got yourself a nice gun, now get to work on tuning the internals :p
