so i have my mil-spec that i've been trying to decide on what to do with it. since i have pretty much the the different types of guns already, i was thinking of something different than 10-8 rear, BTGS, EB thumb safety, etc.

I was thinking of getting it built as a hardball gun. it's already fit tight, so a new barrel, hammer/sear, sights, checkering and tuning.

so basically it would be turning my mil-spec into this:

I say go for it Don. You're building quite an awesome SACS collection. I'm a huge fan of theirs. :thumbsup:

I very recently asked the Les Baer shop if a flat trigger was an option. I got an emphatic NO. True story.

a custom built hardball gun designed to shoot at camp perry and be competitive is the realm of SACS or someone like les baer. To be CMP legal for competition it can't have a beavertail, commander hammer or flat trigger.

Thats because each one of those give you an unfair advantage.:supergrin:

Go with the Hardball build. They look cool.

I would have the frontstrap undercut if you checker it though. Just because it will never look just right if you decide to do it after it's checkered.

I wasn't going to do the work myself, but send it to SACS. I know that no BTGS and commander hammer are allowed, but it doesn't specifically say no flat trigger and a trigger shoe is allowed, so i don't see why a FT wouldn't be allowed :)

6.6.1 U.S. Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 or M1911A1
The pistol must be a pistol that was issued by the U.S. Armed Forces or a commercial pistol of the same type and caliber. The pistol must also comply with

(6) The ejection port may be lowered to aid in ejection.
(7) A flat surface may be milled immediately in front of and behind the dovetail
to aid in securely mounting adjustable rear sights.
(8) A cut may be made at the extreme rear of the slide to allow for rear sight
clearance and vertical movement. The original dovetail slot may be milled
off and a new dovetail cut.
(9) The distance between sights, measured from the apex of the front sight to
the rear face of the rear sight, must not be more than 7.25”.
