    Holy cow that's a beautiful weapon! Love the work you've done. I think Colt makes a gorgeous weapon to begin with, but you've taken it to another level. Again, awesome work!

    Nice work. I am actually considering purchasing a colt 1911. As a matter of fact I was just on the phone with Colt yesterday and they are sending me a catalog in the mail.

    Nice. I had one like that around 1986 or so and sold it.
    Although I'm happy with my S&W 1911 I wish sometimes I would of kept it.
    I never should have sold my cherry Colt series 70 gold cup but I needed cash at the time.
    Your series 80 turned out nice and doing all the work yourself is satisfying.

    Very nice ! Have you put 100 rounds thru it with no bobbles? My ugly old Lightweight Officers runs like a clock, now. It has the Heine recoil system in it though and I use Wilson Combat Officers magazines.

    That is very nice!

    I would opt for a classier holster, if it were me, just to compliment the gun.
