Ok, not an actual model, but one I'm working on... A Champion with bobtail and carry cuts. This is a work in progress, but so far I'm really diggin it:

Yours? Or what you want to build?

I love my compact 1911...



Do you have somebody in mind to do the gunsmithing? If not, I know a good gunsmith who does great work on 1911s. He's done all 5 of mine. Good luck with the build. Cheers! --1911ShooterPhil

Mark Bunach, Master Gunsmith
The Orange County Gunsmith
Phone: 949-306-2028
Website: http://www.ocgunsmith.com/

He does bobtail conversions: http://www.ocgunsmith.com/1911customs.html

He's worked on all 5 of my Rock Island Armory 1911's. I wouldn't trust my 1911's to any other gunsmith now. Hope that helps. Semper Fi! --1911ShooterPhil

Its at cylinder & slide now. The smith that did the machining got the carry cuts uneven, and what's worse cut one of them too deep so basically they cant be evened out. So I learned my lesson trying to get it done fast... C&s taking about 6 months, but are starting over with a new Caspian slide blank
