    My 1911 back from rehab....pics!

    You folks here seem to always enjoy a post with pics.
    This is my daily carry. My thumb safety broke while training and that led to a new trigger and trigger job, sights, grips etc!


    Here are a few before:





    And a few from the other day:











    You might notice I ditched my tritium sights in favor of a 'whiteball' front sight. I find it to be more useful, far more often, than a white ringed tritium front lamp.

    VERY nice!

    You do realize that with those pic's you are contributing to the delinquency of certain members of the forum don't you? There are many wives (and I suppose a few husbands) out there that are shaking their heads and the afore mentioned members yell, "Hey Honey, look what I would like to have!"

    Thanks for sharing!
