    It's so hot it's melted my pistol

    I just picked it up from Terry Collins, and Jerry Tanner at Gander Mnt. in N. Little Rock. A melt and reliability job was done to it. New grips are on order from Wicked Grips. Have new leather on order for this one also.

    It was shooting really good ,but I had it polished up a bit in the throat and on the ramp. Just so it will gobble up anything that gets put in it. I had shot 250 - 300 rounds through it but it still wanted to be finicky on some JHPs. Not now, it'll eat all I feed it.

    Looks like buffing and meld work - the whole piece looks delightfully smooth all over.

    If light rails were needed on handguns John Browning would have included it on the 1911.

    If you'll notice Terry kept the lines straight and even, while softening up the pistol's overall look and feel. I think he did a great job on it. I'll probaly carry it back later for some stippling.

    Lots of buffing. It was bead blasted for a matte finish. The regular LTC has a very shiny polished SS slide that scratches very easy. The matte finish on this stops a lot of that.

    Speaking of being hot enough to melt your gun, it's been so hot here in E. Texas the past week, I've been bringing my car gun inside, even when it's in the garage. Since this time last week, it's been over 100 degrees here every day; in a closed car, it can hit 150 degrees +. With that kind of heat, I've been worried my ammo, gun lubes and non metal parts may be affected. Luckily, there's only a little more than a week left until July is over. Of course, then I have to deal with AUGUST!! BTW, I tried the "hot enough to fry an egg on the road" bit yesterday, and I got a nice sunny side up in about 5 minutes.
