Finally got a picture up of my Colt 1911 "Hybrid" gun. It started with a mix of a genuine 1911 frame, some 1911A1 parts, and an unmarked WWII slide. To put it back to a stock 1911, I had some original 1911 parts (big hammer, long trigger, slide catch, etc), but couldn't locate a nice 1911 slide. Then I happened upon a Colt made "repro" slide, not exactly like the new 01911 or 01918 guns, but with higher fixed sights...maybe a prototype, that slipped out of the factory to the Ohio Gun Collectors show last year. Anyway, I couldn't have done better. The slide is of modern steel, with Colt rollmarks, etc, and has sights I can see, and the frame is pretty original all the way around (except for the 1911A1 grip safety, that just makes it bite less). It is all Colt, with a military Colt replacement "match" barrel with fitted bushing. All in all, perfect for shooting, and better than an original 1911 for that purpose. I can't bring myself to have it refinished. It just begs for a holster or a day in the field. [IMG][/IMG]

I've got to ask; where did you get those grips? They're quite interesting and most certainly unique.

Thank you.

They just hit the market. I haven't even shot it yet. They're built in the Philippines by SAM.

You'll see them in this link if you scroll down a bit.

I saw the new Remington at a gun show last weekend and it was priced at something like $520 I think. Memory really sucks at this time of the morning, so good thing I'm at work..
I picked it up and it felt like a normal GI model and looked like one too. Nothing really special stood out and nothing made me not like it either.
