Just picked up a set of GI logo Alumagrips today for the Model 1 .50GI, but haven't put them on yet. Will have to do that and update later.

Alex spent some time today really selling me on Melonite. I think the next GC will have to be finished in Melonite. :cool: Oh, and he said to tell you that your gun was another 8 months out. :tongueout:

Nice collection.

Does the one on the bottom have an Officer's sized grip? It looks shorter than the others.

Nope this one. "starburst" prolly wasnt the best description, but i didnt know how else to describe it because its different than hogue's and vz's. I do really like Wilson's though. Their all pipe dreams for me right now as I am a college student with a tight budget...but I like them a lot nonetheless.

I wouldn't buy a gun in the semi-custom range without it being ordered to my specs. Yes, I did buy a used Model 1 .50GI, but it was just as I would have ordered it, minus the flush crowned barrel, which was easily resolved by Alex and the SS NN bobtailed Commander, which was spec'd exactly like I would have done it, except for the 3 hole trigger, which was resolved today. :cool:

Is the LPI for the RCS different on some of these? It may just be the angle in the pic but it almost looks like there's a difference from one to another on some of these.

bac1023
07-06-2012, 20:38
I believe its all 15LPI, though someof the checkering covers more space than others.

Yeah, the two No Name Commanders and the NN CCO are the same, while the stainless fullsize No Name and the Model 1 are both different. Also, all of the No Names are 15LPI checkering, while the Model 1 is 20LPI.

The one on the top w/VZ grips(No 1?) It just looks like the lines are different than the other one across from it.



Nevermind. Just saw the reply above.

That's cool, Joe.

I didn't realize the Model 1 had 20lpi. :embarassed:

I asked Alex about that today, as well as why the 20LPI was slimmer than the 15LPI on the others. Alex is a firm believer in the .50GI being an EDC gun. He likes the slimmer pattern on the 20LPI so it doesn't have a chance to hang up on your shirt during the draw. I also asked about the 15LPI not feeling as rough as some 20LPI checkering. He said the points were very finely blasted off, but that the angle of the 15LPI checkering pyramids were at a different angle too and that caused it to feel less aggressive, yet be plenty grippy at the same time. The guy's an engineer and has an explanation and well thought out reason for everything he does. :cool:

Yeah my family is from Coatesville, they said they were feelin the heat. Its crazy, Im from Ohio and have been having the heat wave as well. 'Sposed to get up to 104 here tomorow :faint:, and we just set the record-by-date here today at 102.

I like the summer...but once it gets over 95 it starts getting uncomfortable for me, especially with Ohio humidity(I have heard people from FL that said they hated our summers) and the fact that I try to run a few times week. Brutal.

This sure looks like "trick photography" to me.
A wonderful showcase. I can't wait until you get your first melonite.

Can you make my one and only GC multiply like yours?

The CCO is the front runner. The two Commanders are tied for second. That's mostly from a carry stand point, but the CCO shoots really well in my hands. They all shoot great and I love them all, but the CCO just kinda "grabs me" more. I love the two fullsize guns, but I'm a CCO/Commander 1911 lover at heart. :cool:
