Is the next generation to carry the bevel all the way to the top of the slide?
What is 45 NM (New Mexico)?
I like it.
How many hours were required to complete this beauty?
that's a good lookin' 1911.
Amazing work, as usual.
Nice! Any thoughts on using a norc for a custom build.
Once again, a thing of beauty.
Thats what i call beautiful . Really really nice !
Do you do it professionally or just for yourself?
He does it professionally. As always very nice work.
Very nice machine work, not my "cup of tea" however.
Your gonna make me buy another 1911!!
I'm not generally a fan of that style of stippling , but wow does it go well on that one.
Very, very well done, as usual! Extremely business-like.
It looks very different from an original Norinco now. Different in the good meaning of the word...
All that time in a milling machine and he couldn't take a moment with an end mill to knock off the "Made in China" marking on the frame? It'll be a cold day in hell before any .45 I carry has that written on it.
Otherwise, nice work. Use one of the Phillipino 1911's and you would have something. The craftsmanship looks good.
I like it a lot. Lots of detail going on here as well. I am really a fan of the spur hammer too.
Exactly what I was thinking. Somehow this gun seems to exude beauty and quality but none of it is frilly. The beauty comes from the quality of the work. Really impressive.
What HE ^^^ said!! Gorgeous.
I had a Norinco done by George Stringer, who participated here many years ago. Nice gun. None of the external changes shown above, but a lot of tuning and refining, internally.
Very nice. I particularly like the fish-scale on the slide-top, and front and backstraps. Sights are good and functional too. The recoil spring plug and bushing look great too.
I don't personally care for the grips (I just like checkered wood on a 1911) but still overall a good looking piece without getting gaudy.
What is the finish?
Gorgeous! Only thing I don't like are the grips.
