Gans Guns did the machine work and I fit all the internals. I sanded,stippled and painted the grip as well.

Wish I coulda shot my last match with that.... stages were set up to make shooting single stack damn near impossible.

Is that a C-More mounted sideways?

Yep...puts the dot closer to the slide.

I've never seen one mounted like that, interesting.

Awesome setup! I'm jealous, I would love to try an open gun.

Would love to take that for a test drive!! Good luck!

Very Nice!! Some of the purists will cringe, but you have to shoot one to appreciate it. I've had 5 open guns (still have 3 of them).

Is that a C-More mounted sideways?

Yep...puts the dot closer to the slide.

Yes, that is one advantage. The other advantage is that it clears the ejection port. The more traditional mounts the dot on top of the ejection port, which requires lots of tuning to make the brass clear the gun. This became even more of a problem when the 9mm open guns started coming out.

Speaking of which, what caliber is this gun? Mine are all .38 super (one used to be 9x21), as they were built before 9mm major was allowed.

I've never seen one mounted like that, interesting.

Years ago, a few guys were experimenting with an upside down CMore. Also, a local guy, Barry Ruane, make an angled mount. They are a little tricky to sight in as your planes are not vertical horizontal, they are diagonal. :wow:

I built this in 9mm. The cmore is indeed mounted on its side. It keeps the dot closer to the side. It makes it easier to go back and forth from a red dot to iron sights.
Thanks for all the compliments. Heres the specs.

Aftec extractor

Glad to see I'm not the only one that appreciates these. :wavey:

Nice job on the build. :thumbsup:

I love the Aftec. Have them in all my 1911s and 2011s. :wavey:

Congrats! :cool:

Thanks. It was a fun project. I've got over 1000rnds through it so far and not one malfunction. It was a little scarey loading 9mm to go about 1400 fps.
