Ok guys...I know you're probably all excited like I am! I got the EMP back today and I am truly AMAZED by what John did! The fit and finish of the pistol is excellent and the parts were all dehorned via the "Carry Bevel" John did.

I would like to personally THANK:

John Harrison (www.harrisoncustom.com)
Larry Davidson (www.davidsonknives.com)
Ryan Payne (www.thefinergrain.com)

I was able to take it to the range and run 300 rounds through it. I had a few hiccups in the beginning, but I blame that to the ammo (PRVI PPU). After I ran a few mags of that, I switched to WWB and it run flawlessly! I switched back after 100 rounds of WWB to the PRVI PPU and it fed everything without incident.

I ran the gun liberally wet for the range with Hoppes #9, but I did not have time to test Slide-Glide Lite yet.

Ok, now to the good stuff...

Here are some custom grips by Ryan (Sarge) that turned out absolutely fantastic!!! I am VERY impressed with them. It's really hard to decide which ones I want to use, I love both, but obviously the Larry D's have a lot more grip.

Here is the range test. I used 115gr PRVI PPU and 115gr WWB. 7 yards, isosceles stance.

Here is about 100 round grouping into the center of the target:

This was about a 20 round group:

Obviously, if I do my part, the EMP will do it's!

Looks Great! I love all black 1911's..

wow that EMP looks amazing congratulations. I think the sarges grips look the best on it. I like wood look on 1911's and Revolvers better then G10 patterns.

Thanks for the kind words! I have to say, BOTH sets of grips were custom made by both parties specifically for me and the EMP. Both grip sets have the round-butt to match the frame, as well as Larry D taking the extra step when I asked him to "melt" the edges. Thanks Chuck for the inspiration on that! Ryan
's grips are African Blackwood in case anyone would like to know.

I like the black grips best. But I'd take it without grips. Very nice.

I am completely on the fence about which grips to use! I didn't think it would be this difficult. :rofl:

I LOVE the wood grips, they look fantastic, but the G10 grips provide a lot of grip. I have the wood on there now...

Now I understand why so many people like wood grips though, they are stunningly beautiful.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, but all I did was pay for it! :)

Nice blaster! John is a quality guy!

As far as the grips, I guess I don't understand the new breed of makers who make their grips so wide that they cover the frame pins. This means you have to take the grips off to strip the gun. No thanks. I think the VZ's are the way to go.

Wood grips are always beautiful, but function is always better. I would (and did) go with G10 or aluminum grips for a carry gun.
