    First of all, a Merry Christmas to you all! I hope it's safe and that many life memories are being made this very minute.
    A little before Christmas, I fell into a real once in a lifetime type deal on a gorgeous BWC with a born on date of July '09. It came in, and of course the first thing to be done was new grips. The high undercut on the trigger guard and the checkered front strap let me do something subtle, but cool on them.
    I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet (I know, don't worry, it's bothering me too), but hope to do so soon after Christmas.
    Anyway, on to the pics!

    That is Bea-friggin'-utiful! Word is that lefties and 1911's don't mix, however. You should raffle it off to the first person to respond to this thread!

    Very busy brother! Cut back the day job to 4 days a week to have more shop time, and then BOTH exploded. Trying to work toward making the hobby the full time gig in the near future. I hope to be back here more in the future.
    Hope you're enjoying your Christmas!

    They sell for $2850, but if you're the luckiest SOB in the world at the right place at the right time totally by accident - like me - $1,800 even. :D

    Been wondering where you've been, Sarge.

    BTW, I love the panels I've bought from you. I'll get pics up some day.

    The grips are Amboyna Burl, and the holster is a VMII with Shark trim. Obviously in two tone.
    I will post more after I get a chance to shoot this beauty.
