nice craftsmanship Chuck, I like the golf balling treatment. Especially on the MSH. :D

GASP!! :what: CHOKE!! :eek:

Obviously a creation of Browning's EVIL twin... :neener:

Drop that in the sandbox and you'll never find it... And what's that thing on the front?? A ro-tary magazine or rocket launcher? :scrutiny:

Well at least they didn't drill holes through the side of the trigger... :uhoh:

Ah... Chuck, where you'all going to find a holster??? :D :D

Old Fuff,
That's why I put a leash on it!

Old Fuff,
This pistol will have two holsters.
A Safariland 6004 Tactical in Coyote Tan that will fit the pistol with light attached.
And a Blade-Tech IWB also in Coyote Tan that will fit the pistol without the light.
The Dawson rail is quite low profile. It will fit in some unmodified concealment holsters.
I think this gun would be right at home in your neck of the woods....errrr....desert! ;)

That's the best lookin' "ugly" 1911 I've seen. ;) What is the purpose of the vertical cuts in the frame/slide rails? Place for crud to go?

If you send it to me I'll evaluate it in sandbox #2 for ya. ;) Just kidding, the pesky Army wouldn't let me....:rolleyes:

I would guess the angled cuts in the slide rails are to let sand , dust or grit out if the firearm ever did fall in the sandbox. Is this a theoretical modification or have you dumped it in a box of sand and tried it for function? The workmanship appears to be first class, I really like the rear sight, the way it blends with the slide.

Chuck, your staking marks look a little far away to use a center punch to swage the disco hole tighter, or is that what you did? If you have time could you explain the process? I'm interested in learning this. Thanks :)
