    Just finished it today. Haven't got out to sight it in yet.

    Hopefully within the next week or so.

    The barrel is TacSol, and I think the rail is too.

    Looks very nice. I've been meaning to get the same rail and a TacLite barrel (although I want it shorter and threaded for a suppressor host), just have too little money and too many guns I want.

    Those grip panels look like TacSol's aluminum ones as well.

    Performed Heggis Flip on the sear spring and stoned the hammer. Trigger pull was already at 3lb - 9oz., after the flip and stoning it went down to 2lb -9oz.

    Browning parts:
    Nickel slide, slide release, safety assy., mag release.
    Recoil rod, spring, buffer pad.

    Tactical Solutions:
    7.25inch fluted barrel, "low' front fiber optic sight, Integral Sight Rail, Grip Panels.

    I have some 1911 grip panels being fabricated along with some magazine pads.

    After all the work and $, the wife didn't like the way the nickel slide looked so I put the original black slide back on. ( I had to tell her I was upgrading "her" gun to able to this, but you know who will be shooting more....):D

    Here's the same pistol with Rusty_22's .45 Grip Adaptors.

    As far as shooting, I'm very happy with it. From a benchrest to 25yds I can keep it in about an inch with the open sights. Pretty good for my old eyes. I have a Mueller Quickshot Reflex ready to go on next but I'm enjoying shooting it with the open sights right now. Maybe a scope later on down the road.

    I went with the Hogue grips as they felt a lot better in my hand. The Pachmyr's felt cheap as there is an air gap behind the finger grooves. The Pachmyrs looked better but the Hogue's feel better.

    Rusty's grip adapters are essential IMHO--just add them to the cost of the pistol. I love the feel of them, and rotate between the grips on my 1911.

    Beautiful, but be careful.
    Buck Rogers is looking for his missing pistol.
