I am intersted in building a 1911 with my granddad.
I would like a 1911 in officers size, probably stainless steel for carry purposes with nice rounded edges and low profile gi sights....
I would prefer to use a Caspian frame and slide and have them fit them just for ease of assembly....what would you guys consider mandatory to build the "ultimate" carry 1911....of course it would probably wind up being a BBQ gun just for sentimental sake but who knows I may love it and carry it......
I was thinking as I said before nice rounded edges with low profile sights of some sort....officers size frame and slide, and probably in stainless for easy care....undecided on bushingless or bushing barrel, opinions?
How would you guys finish it or build the "ultimate" carry 1911?
Open to lots of opinions and insights.....also pictures and links are always appreciated.
