    Nice! Any thoughts on using a norc for a custom build.

    Very nice.

    Do you do it professionally or just for yourself?

    It looks very different from an original Norinco now. Different in the good meaning of the word...:neener:

    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.

    Gorgeous! Only thing I don't like are the grips.
