Not yet Mark. I'm anxiously waiting. Just had things that have come up.

I was thinking about giving you a call today. I miss hanging out and I'm tired of working. LOL

Since I'm self-employed, I can come down any time you guys want to hang out. Shooting is always fun, but even if it's for indoor activities at a local watering hole, I'm game.

One of these days, I'll have to arrange to come hang out with y'all.

Seems like every time I come home, there's stuff to fill my schedule.

Yeah I like this gun more and more every time I shoot it.

Still need to swap out the front sight for a fiber optic but other than that she's a keeper for sure.


You come on down Mark and you can take her for a test drive. ;)

I've said it since I got mine. Best 1911 for the money. I like it as much as any I ever shot - or looked at.

Nothing like a 1911. How's the feel of it and weight?

CIB, feel and weight is pretty much on par with a standard 5" 1911 in .45.

A few folks online have mentioned it would be nice to have some checkering on the front strap but I have no issues.

The trigger is what's really interesting. It's a series 70 action and I measured with my Lyman around 2.5-3lbs. Short reset and glass rod break.


Still on the hunt for a front sight and am leaning towards a Dawson fiber optic.
