Well, good news. After talking to John Harrison for a few months, I came up with a build list and he's just waiting for me to send my EMP to him.

Bad news, he said it's going to take a few months, and this is my only carry gun. :crying: So cry me a river and pray that nothing happens! Also, to add insult to injury, it's going to be about 50% more than what I anticipated in the beginning. :faint:

HD-005 rear sight
Fit and Tune new extractor
Flush fit extractor
Re-crown flush
HD slide stop
HD short trigger
Front strap checking 25lpi
Ed Brown single-side safety (tactical)
Carry Bevel
Countersunk slide stop
Round Butt
Refinish matte black DLC (everything)

And lastly, I have a set of Horned Lizards with mag release ramp cut ready to go. Actually, I've had these for a few months now but they are cut for SS safety so I have to wait.

I haven't even sent it in yet but man I can't wait to get it back. :rofl:

And one last thing, I hate all of you.

Thanks everyone. I've gotten a few comments about why I'm spending so much on an EMP when I could be in Wilson territory.

Simply put, it's what I envisioned the EMP to be, and I know John will make it happen. I honestly don't see myself getting another 1911 anytime soon, and I don't see myself carrying another 1911 either. Besides, I would have to sell the holsters I bought, plus the EMP and everything else. :tongueout:

Murdered 3" EMP, what more could you want? :rofl:

Just sent the gun out today, so hopefully it won't take forever (but I heard Ionbond takes a while). I'll be sure to post pictures obviously, as soon as I get it back.

Now if I only had another 1911 to carry. So with that said, I'm taking donations until the EMP comes back. 3-4.25" 1911's only, any caliber 9mm+. PM me if interested. :tongueout:

You'll let me borrow the GBOB for a few weeks? I've got an empty 4.25" VM2 and a handful of 9mm GoldDots at the moment. :whistling:

I don't know how well those Gold Dots will sit inside that VM2...you might want to ducktape that hole in the bottom so those bullets won't fall out.

I hope you can throw those Gold Dots with some accuracy. Might want to visit the range and get your pitching arm warm up, until when you can be part of the 1911 club... :rofl: :tongueout:

On a side note, Quack said he was "soon" sending his EMP off to the Custom Shop for some work, and that was back in January 2010.

So what's the deal!? I guess they won't touch those fugly flat triggers.

Looks like a nice set up, but here's the question, and understand everything I own is stock, from my Glock 17 to my 1.5 inch SRP in hard chrome...

Why do all this to a weapon that works perfectly well already?

To make it your own.
To squeeze every last ounce of performance out of it.
Just why I would do it.

You guys crack me up. Yes, like I said earlier, I could be close to stock Wilson territory, but that's not the same to me. It's all about having the pistol exactly like I want.

Besides, like Quack said, I ride a Harley, so changing "old crappy" designs are just part of my life. :rofl:

Update:

Super excited...John's progress on my EMP is significant. He has the MSH and front strap done, along with the countersunk slide stop hole and the high grip cut. Here are some teaser pics:

http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j96/polizei1/FSC.jpg

http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j96/polizei1/FSC2.jpg

http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j96/polizei1/MSH.jpg

Btw: I originally planned to go with 25lpi checkering, but John gave me a call and basically suggested I go with scallops instead of checkering. The reason is because my particular EMP, the remaining metal on the aluminum frame would only be 0.0030" thick. Now, would something happen? I'm not sure, but John said he doesn't like to go that low...just to give you an idea, stack 6 pages of legal paper together and that's the thickness. So instead of being sorry later (like having a crack in the frame), I went with John's recommendation and am playing it safe.

besides, I actually kind of like the look so far, and John said they function the same if not better than the checkering. We shall see...the gun is going for refinishing next week so not to long from now I should have it back!

I'm excited to say the least...

PS. Anyone have any good suggestions on grips? I have a set of Horned Lizards with MSH cut, and ramp...but I think I want to go a different direction. Thinking about Warthogs with no MSH cut, no ramp, and fit for round-butt. Basically the same grips Chuck seems to use, only the EMP slim thickness. Gun will be Ionbond BTW.

Thoughts?
