A little gun porn to help everyone through the week. This is my g/f's Springfield 1911A1 GI. She bought is used and just got it back from a thorough makeover at Grayguns, where I send her GSR for custom work last year.
Lots of replaced parts, action work, GGI hardtail conversion, beveled magwell, Dawson fiber optic sights (which required dovetail cuts in the slide), fixed a rail alignment issue, took out the full length guide rod, new thinline VZ grips, replaced 2-part barrel with a single-piece, and had the whole thing refinished in SuperBlack.
I think it looks pretty awesome, personally, and it is a real tackdriver. The trigger is, well, wow...
(And title edited, thanks to those who pointed out it is, in fact, a Mil-Spec and not a Government.)
