Last week I stopped in at the local Pawn/Gun shop. I know the owner really good, worked for his dad years ago. So I’m always going behind the counter and helping customers from time to time. While behind the counter I saw a 1911 slide sitting on the workbench. I asked about it and was told that they had just found it in the back and they weren’t sure what they were going to do with it. I stopped in again five days ago and I was asked if I would be interested in buying the 1911 slide. It was made by High Standard and it was a complete upper except for the recoil spring plug. They wanted $150.Well, as some of y’all know, l have more stuff then I know what to do with, but $150 wasn’t that bad. There was a little surface rust but not much. I said I would think about it and left. I wasn’t able to stop in again until today. The 1911 upper was still on the workbench. I thought I would try my luck and offered $125 for it and was told it was mine. As I was getting out the cash my friend handed my a Wichita 1911 comp. and said this goes with it. So now I need to pickup a frame and decide how I want to build it.
