    Custom Springfield GI Retro

    I have this posted in the for sale, but thought you might like to see my son's idea of his perfect 1911 (before he decided to sell it )

    SA GI base gun
    EGW sear, leaf spring and diconnect
    STI titanium strut
    EMC tool steel wide spur hammer
    USGI slide stop
    Yost Retro rear sight
    Kings Hardball front sight
    S&A lanyard loop checkered MSH
    Custom "flat top" hand checkering 25 lpi front strap
    Relieved and flushed slide stop
    EGW angle bore hand fit match bushing
    Frame to slide tightening
    60 degree target crown on barrel
    Wilson Bullet Proof exractor and firing pin
    Wolff springs 18 lb MSH and 18.5 lb recoil
    VZ Gatorbacks or SA "US" grips

    All of the normal gunsmithing stuf that makes a pretty good gun into an outstanding custom. Throated and polished ramp and barrel. All reliability tuning and internal working surface polishing. 4 lb very crisp trigger. Slide is parkerized and base is GunKote OD over parkerizing.

    Very reliable, accurate, full custom retro. And I think a good value. I didn't think he would part with this one ever.

    Outstanding! The 1911 is king!

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Very nice 1911! Wish I had the extra $$...
    If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good. ~ Thomas J. Watson, Jr.
