    Here are some pics of one of my New Again 1911's.

    Started off with a Dan Wesson Point Man. Well used of course. Step in "Coal Creek Armory". Jason Avery is a personal friend and customer of mine. He offered to give my 1911 a good once over. Turned out a once over was an understatment.


    Upgrades made:
    Greider trigger
    Novak front and rear site
    Brown 25 mainspring housing
    Wilson beavertail
    Brown thumb safety
    S&i bushings
    Open magwel
    Checker front strap
    Broke sharp edges
    Throat barrel lead and entry
    Dress breach face
    Polished feed ramp
    Tuned extractors
    isonite finish.
    All work was hand fit and tuned

    43 hours total were put into this 1911. The fit and finish is better than I can possibly describe.

    Anybody that knows me or has read any of my posts knows I am not a 1911 guy, but I like that gun. All business, built with quality parts, everything you need and nothing you don't.

    If it is flawlessly reliable, it should make for a great 1911.

    Just my .02,

    That is really nice looking

    I've always felt the Pointman and CBOB were good starting points for some light extra work to turn them into dependable fighting guns

    Looks great and would be even better with a fresh set of wider stocks. Excellent choices on parts and where to spend for upgrades. Kudos to the owner and builder.
