...well by today's standards at least. There is a back story to this one but I don't think I'll go into great detail, if at all. I wanted something unique and planned out my parts accordingly.

I found the builder who I thought could give me what I wanted for the amount I wanted to spend. It was scheduled to delivery hours ago, but since we got some nasty ice, it was delayed.

I may hit the range tonight to finish my 1000 round test but don't know if I feel like it yet. Since it showed up late all I have is one teaser photo, time to get back to work.

It just needs a rail.

Awesome love GI projects. Did you modify the grip safety yourself for the hammer?

So...I'm curious, was I right? I said SACS.

Holy retro Batman ! Love it. Very clean and perfect for the 100th aniversary theme!

I guess that's ok. I'm a little disappointed GJ. I was hoping for a HelloKitty blaster. :tongueout:

Very nice! :cool:


I've long been a fan of "less is more" 1911's. :thumbsup:

Yep, I like all my 1911s like my balconies with rails :supergrin:.

Stop right there, don't do anything else to it. That gun is beautiful in a simple, purposeful way. I like!!

John Harrison?

You're by Ft. Wayne, right? I'll be there tomorrow, so I can pick it up from you :animlol:

DON'T let Quack touch that pistol...I'll instantly will have a flat trigger on it... :animlol:

Have no fear, I still have 3 more that should arrive this year. I won't let you down.

John Harrison?

You're by Ft. Wayne, right?

No, but I'm trying to get a Harrison build going. I know RMA is lucky enough to be getting one since I recommend he use John for his project.

I'm close to FW, but not that close :wavey:

Front sight with gold bead. Staked.
Harrison/Yost rear sight.
Kings thumb safety.
Harrison long trigger.
Berryhill commander hammer.
EGW stainless barrel bushing.

Oh you're good. The thumb safety is a Wilson 6BN...I think that's the part number. Not sure about the barrel bushing...I didn't ask for a particular one. The front sight is dovetailed, they just did a good job of blending.


Basic run down of the specs:

Kart Match Barrel and Bushing
Dovetail Front sight with Gold bead, blended to slide
Harrison Rear Sight
Wilson Thumb Safety
Vickers Hammer, Sear, Disco - 3.5-4# Pull
Reliability Tuning
Wilson BP Extractor
Lower and Flare Ejection Port
Harrison Long Trigger
Baer MSH, 20 LPI
EGW Slide Stop
EGW Firing Pin Stop
Wilson Plunger Tube
Carry Bevel
Bevel Magwell
10-8 Pin Set
Wolff Springs
Matte Bluing


I did not have the frame/slide tightened since this one wasn't too bad. I figure I'll spend the money saved on more components.

I'm hitting the range for my 1K test of my SA Custom so this one will go along for the ride, but I only plan for 150-200 rounds in it. GI grip safeties don't like my hands for high round shooting...





As for who built it :dunno:










:tongueout:

Great looking 1911. No frills, just what you need :supergrin:

I can neither confirm nor deny :supergrin:

I'll let it be known tomorrow...that SA Custom Shop built this. That is unless someone quotes this.



Thanks to all, I've been missing a plain, no frills 1911.

On a serious note, I have all the original parts, what would a reasonable asking price be? I'm thinking around $85???

Ha, awesome. It looks really good man! I wish I could afford one! So...do I win a prize or something?

Well, your prize can be telling everyone you were right :supergrin:

I've been lucky to be able to buy what I have over the last few years. I sold a bunch of stuff in 2008-2010 and I'm finally seeing some of my orders show up. I was also smart with my deployment money, I didn't rush out to buy a new Mustang like some many did.


I hit the range last night for another pistol and got 150 through this one. I had 2 FTFeeds, the same as I did with a few of 1911's. I'm pretty certain it's the ammo, so when I change my loads I'll know for sure.

The only problem I'm having is this pistol is hitting LOW, at least 3" at 15 yards. I plan to try some different ammo and a rest to make sure, but even my friend shot it very low.


A few quick photos

Awesome! It does look amazing. Hope you get the situations sorted out, I think my EMP looks a bit low, but I need to do some more testing.

Have some damn respect for the traditions of the platform for God's sake!

You kids and you crazy new age 1911s, I guess I just do not get it.

I can't decide if I want the 10-8 GI style rear sight, or the novak cut 10-8 rear sight. Your pics are making me lean towards GI

If you go with the G.I. cut, you'll have the option to change it later.
