    New 1911

    Well, here is my new 1911, this makes three now. The notable exception is that I built this one from a stripped slide and frame, fitted all the parts, and parkerized it myself. Thought I would share it.

    Question http://www.combatcarry.com/vbulletin/images/smilies/vol_1/confused.gif

    May I ask how long it took you? Also how many years of experience do you have with 1911's?

    Ooops, I forgot to say great job, it's got to be a great feeling to know that you did it.

    The whole job took me about two months, most of that sitting and waiting for Brownells to ship some parts to me (not too many places around here that retail 1911 parts). I've been around 1911s for several years, but I decided it was time to build one. I have a gunsmith friend who does a lot of 1911 work and he agreed to look over my shoulder while I fitted and buffed the parts. The only way to learn is by doing....under professional supervision in this case.

    In your signature I notice you have a Kimber Pro Carry II. I have a Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II and have had zero issues with it, in fact it's the most reliable gun I own.

    Excellent Job! The ONLY thing I would change is the grips and thats because the Hogues are too large for my tiny mitts. Congrats!

    That's awesome! Building your own pistol is something else.
    Can I ask what frame/slide did you use? I gutted out a Norinco years ago and used Wilson parts in it. I like the finger groove grips on yours. I would make it a point to have them on mine.

    Well its an unmatched STI upper and lower that I had to fit. The barrel is a kart, the trigger parts are cylinder and slide, magwell by smith and alexander and the sights are by dawson with trij night sights. I agree with you about the hogues I have them on most of my pistols and even on my deer rifle. They are easily the cheapest thing you can buy to improve control of the weapon.
