Thanks glbtrottr and banana for all your efforts putting this together and all the logistics - that's a heap of work! Paypal sent.

OK glbtrottr, I sent you my check this morning as per our PMs back and forth. I hope you get it by Tues. I'm just in San Diego area. I'm sure this is turning out to be a lot of work for you guys, so I want to say that I really appreciate it. Thanks

glbtrottr, when should I expect to see my name show up on one of your lists as far as being in the buy? I know I just starting talking to you last night, but I just didn't want it to fall through the cracks.

I obviously need a slide and kit but I don't know much about that. Anyone have suggestions on how to make that decision? I probably want to get on your group buys for those. I see you have a list for slides from one manufacturer, and then parts kits. Is there more detailed information on those? If it's all in the posts let me know I just haven't had time to read them all yet.

I assume the first thing I have to do is decide what model I want to build, and that would dictate the slide and then the parts?? I've been looking at Brownell's tutorials on building a 1911. Does anyone have any other good sources for information???

Also is there any thought of a group buy for tools that we might need like the files, stones for polishing, and whatever else? I'm really new to this so I don't really know what all we'll need.
Thanks again

Banana, I'm on the non-payers list although Paypal indicates payment status of completed. If there was some problem receiving it, please let me know.

I dropped by the machinist's shop Sunday and had a look at the prototype with slide and parts kit installed - great looking gun. Dave indicated they are going to modify the grips slightly to make them more traditional (higher up the frame).

Banana, I pmed glbtrottr on 7/1 and mailed a check to him saying I want 1 frame on the buy. I don't see myself on any of your lists, but I hope you got my payment check. I still want in on for the 1 frame, and glbtrottr should have my check by tomorrow I would hope (I'm just south of Oceanside).

Please let me know my status. I also want on the Caspian slide, and parts kit buys.
Thanks for your work on this.

So the biggest complaint that made the most amount of people drop out is changing now that the gb is closed? Cool.

This GB is now CLOSED -- I am waiting for the last few straggling checks, 2 were lost on their way to me and sorting that out now. If there are ANY issues let me know. And I hope everyone had a fabulous 4th!

FYI I am going through PayPal tonight and updating the almost final list hopefully tonight. There was a huge flurry at the end and then the thread moved as well, egads! Man, I have not checked PayPal, people with checks have been having issues so my focus has been there.

The list is up to date and barring any insanity overnight, is the final list. I sent confirmations to all the drops just to make sure nothing else got lost in the mail. We have 2 missing MO's thanks to USPS and I am working with both. Money is moving from PayPal to the bank and as soon as it hits ... weeee...off we go and on to slides and parts kits. If you are on the drop list and not supposed to be, PM ASAP. Thanks. If you have been keeping an eye on the final numbers the close day was an insane flurry which is why we are far behind.

If anyone in the Orange area needs to rent mill time I'm open to helping out, even though I'm not part of this GB.

I've milled 1911's before.

Here to help!

I am interested in a Caspian slide and a parts kit. When can we get more information?

That would be nice to know, as well as the total $$ amount and number of parts ordered, and a reasonable estimate of delivery time, which should be a bit more specific than it was at the time this GB was proposed.

This looks like an interesting project. Maybe I can't find it, but is there a picture of the unfinished frame and jig?
