    1911's in process....busy, busy!!!

    I thought some might like to see what I've been up to.
    I had cause to take a group photo of golfballed projects. Found a few more than I would have guessed.
    No small wonder why my bank account is hurting, as I am a one-man shop and each one of these pistols represents a paycheck that I have not yet received.
    I'll post pics of the finished pistols........soon I hope!

    Great pictures but I cringed a little seeing the AR's piled on top of each other


    In a different life I would have loved to have been a gunsmith running my own shop!!!

    Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......

    Every time I see one of your projects...I drool a little. I am not a 1911 man by trade, but these just make me want one. Hopefully once I am a little more financially able I will make you one of those "paychecks". Keep up the excellent work.

    Gorgeous... I think my heart skipped a beat seeing the government slide on the officer frame. A welcome sight indeed.

    How are you liking that SE-1 grip for your AR?

    Not my guns.
    Just builds I have done or am doing for customers.
    My guns are rather spartan, very simple and light.
    Of what possible interest would pics of my personal guns be?
    They tend to be minimal and not very exciting......

    Ah, understood.

    New line of questioning then; have you built up one of those gov't slide/officer frame 1911s yet? That idea's been on my mind for a while...
