Default Let's see some 1911 pics

Ok, I see a lot of discussion on 1911's so let's see some!
This is a homebuilt on a SS Safari Arms frame with a bunch of extras (like some 20 yr old, 11 round magazines)

I replaced mine with a set of lacewood grips that I made. It took me less than an hour to do everything but the finish.

Speaking of comps, what's it take to make this legal to put on a pistol?
I didn't want to register any 45 with the state so I just removed it.

Keep in mind that the law says (more or less) "capacity to accept a threaded barrel capable to accept a flash suppresor, etc" There is no law against having a muzzle device on your handgun, assuming it is either permanently attached or connected via other means besides threading (I've seen some very cool methods, some of them being quick detach and very nice). So if it's threaded on, just get it silver soldered on and you are fine. The great thing about 1911s is the barrel slides in from the font chamber first, so you can have a three foot wide five foot long muzzle device on it and you can still install it in your slide without problems/modification.

If you really want it, just permanently attach it.

ETA: To keep with the topic:

Naw, it most likely he linked the wrong link into the img code. It won't show up unless it is actually a photo.

Default Colt Delta Gold Cup 10mm

Here is an unusual 1911 I've had about 7 years - a Colt Delta Gold Cup in 10mm. I don't shoot it much because the ammo is expensive compared to .45, but it is a good shooter. It is stock except for a trigger job I had done to bring the pull down to 4.0 lbs.

That fine gun is in the safe with a new Wilson extractor installed and a new set of grips. I took my son out this summer and broke him in on handguns with it!. I even got my liberal seed nephew from New York (22 yr old) to shoot it. It sits in the safe next to 2 38 super commanders and a some 45's. I'll see if I have a photo somwhere. RB

I like small guns, so two of these count for style points alone.

Default New 1911 toy

Just got this back from the Springfield Armory Custom Shop. I sent them a Caspian frame/slide that I had ordered with Heinie sight cuts, serrated top of slide, ball cuts on the slide, serrated front strap, integral plunger tube, bevel pack, and the tactical mag well option to the race ready frame. Also had Caspian fit the slide and frame. I sent SA a Cylinder and Slide Tactical hammer group, tactical thumb safety, trigger, plus a Wilson bullet proof slide stop, extractor, and mag release. Can't forget the EGW thick bushing and plug. Basically they fit up the gun, installed a Nowlin barrel, Heinie Straight Eight sights, double diamond grips and whatever else I forgot to send them. They contoured the mainspring housing to the frame, stippled it, cut the slide stop end even with the frame (with a countersink), and finally Black T'd it (they bead blasted the bushing, trigger, and the parts of the hammer for a nice contrast). The Custom Shop did an excellent job putting this gun together. It's tight, but very smooth. My only complaint is the rear sight cut that Caspian did. It's a bit long on the top, and a bit deep at the back where the tail of the rear sight comes down into the slide. There's a bit of light visible through these spots. Otherwise, it's all good. Now if I can just find some time to get out and shoot it!

The gun was loaded with safety on. I don't drop the hammer on my 1911s, at least not in the house; I'm too afraid of slipping or not holding it right and letting the gun discharge. Safeties are on at all times. And just so you know, my face was no where near the camera when I took the picture. It actually took me about 15 pictures to get that one, and it still didn't come out right, but it was good enough to see the hollow point so it got the job done.

As for barrel lenth, yeah it's a short bugger. The barrel is something like 3" and the entire thing is done in black with tritium night sights. It also holds 10 rounds of .45 so it's a nice late night buddy.

I figured it was condition 1 (like mine is) and probably figured you used a remote setup. I just felt the need to give you a little crap

I very recently acquired my first pistol so I'm still excited about it:



Haven't done much to it so far, but my first major task will be to bob the hammer and then smooth off the grip safety spur a bit, it's been biting me. Other than that I'm pleased with it.

I couldn't think of anything else to prop up the pistol for the pic so the knife is a Spyderco Adventura; it was given to me by someone I respect quite a bit so its become one of my prized possesions, and its been a great knife. (Spyderco should pay me the way I praise them...)
