    But a deal is a deal.

    Picked this up last week. I've been looking for one of these for awhile for summer carry and just couldn't pass it up.

    Took it to the range and put about 100 rds of 3 different JHPs thru it just to make sure and it operated flawlessly.

    I'm happy.......for now:D

    Nice piece, you're going to love that mouse!

    Hey, funny you should ask. You really need to ditch those goodyear grips and scale-up!

    I've got a set of Officer's stocks covered in prairie rattler available. Swapped them out when I got the canebrake rattler.

    You can have them for what I got in them, $37.

    Those are some nice looking pistols you both have there. I was wondering how they shoot. I have heard that they have some very snappy recoil. I was looking at getting a Springfield Micro Compact 1911 but wanted to gather more information on the short 3" barrel pistols.

    Beautiful piece


    I like yours better than mine. Yours has the upswept beavertail, I would prefer that model, nice find.

    So change yours! Wilson Combat Drop-In High Ride Beavertail Safety part # 429SC.

    Beavertail Grip Safeties - Drop In

    It's what I installed on Canebrake:

    I also installed a S&A arched MSH with magwell. It improved my accuracy 50%!

    I know the word drop-in does always mean drop-in. Does it require any machine work?

    Nope, been there, done that and it truly is a drop-in part.

    So is the Smith and Alexander magwell. The arched main spring housing forces your grip high and into the beavertail controlling muzzle flip.

    Best $80 I spent on Canebrake. (Except maybe the grips.)

    Smith & Alexander - "The Mag-Guide People"

    The one I got was P/N OMAS.

    When you talk to Allen or Barb tell them you heard about them here on the FTF and say hi for me.
