    VERY nice shooting gun... got 1,000s of rounds through it, without a hiccup... couldn't care less whether you like ivory grips... I do. :D

    If I recall correctly... the 'smith that built this one did the checkering on the front strap, as well as the fine checkering on the back face of the slide too.

    I bought this one in '90 (or there 'bouts). A co-worker brought it in to show for the ol' timer that built it (wish I could remember his name). I've never been disappointed by it. Took it with me to the S&W Academy in '91 and used it for my instructor's update and recertificaiton course. It's run flawlessly for me from day one.

    "For the joy of shooting", this one beats my Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II hands down... but, for daily carry... I always grab the Kimber. Got a Series 80 Officer's in stainless too... but, it takes 3rd place between the three.

    Nice pair there BlayGlock... if I was carrying this one more... I'd opt for an upgrade to some less "grabby" rear sights... but this thing just shoots so nice with the Wilson Combats that are on there now.

    LOL I need to take me some "more gooder" shots of this thing now that I have a better digital camera. :D

    Thats ratdog. The Les Baer pic was taken after a hard use range session in the back 40, so it is dirty. Ive got a few more, just dont have pics of them. Got a NIghthawk Custom and a Springfield Custom Shop on the way.

    Nope, the grips just don't compliment the gun.

    ... Man, the all black 1911 is evil looking ...

    And then I see the grips and it's still evil looking ... just in that "South Texas Hungover Barroom Brawler With a Navy Tat" kind of way.

    is that a ballister molina? I had a chance to buy two of those for 250 2 years ago, just didn't commit.

    Edit: Just noticed second post.

    The gunsmith who built that 1911 had them special made. If you like I can give you his contact info. Send me a PM if you want.

    Here is the other side:

    I was issued Ballester Molinas back then and when.

    They were worn but I hit the metal silhouette as required.
