The Firing Line has a monthly contest - not limited to 1911's, but to any firearm. I probably shouldn't be adverting another forum here, but I see many of the same members on both forums.

you can get the knife at m1911.org......it takes standard 1911 grips so it can match your pistol

My limited edition Kimber Target Match. I have a bunch of 1911s. This is one of my favorites.

Best regards.

The photo doesn't show the wear on this gun, but it's there, as is a nice small crack in the right grip panel!

Just aftermarket trigger and sights.

I didn't post any of the custom 1911s I have because I think closest to the original = very, very cool and nice looking.

This one is about as close to original that I have, so I'm in the market!

Well done, Sharps, that is one great looking 1911. What are you considering for the finish?

I especially like how you made some of the modern upgrades - like the ambi safety - look retro.

That is one very cool 1911. Thanks for posting it.

Take care,
DFW1911

Sharps,

I'd buy that green 10mm from you in about 1 second: it looks great.

Re: the retro, yep, it needs a period-specific finish. In other words, military.

I'm sure we'll be seeing pics when you're done with it?

Take care,
DFW1911

I curse the day you sold that thing. It was supposed to be mine and you wait until a week after I buy a custom 1911... You're lucky I like you.
