I will do a complete build update when I get the time to do one properly. Till then some pics of my newest build.

Base gun was a NIB Colt WWII Repro (it goes very nicely with my Harrison WWI)

Enjoy!

Thank you! It is an outstanding build, it not only looks like a million bucks, it shoots just as good.

Thank you! They are John Harrison's new grips and they are awesome. The serrations do a great job in locking the gun in. I will be adding several other sets for other guns.

I was fortunate once to shoot one of his personal 1911 builds...That was the first time I ever shot a 1911 it was so smooth. I would love to have a build by him one day.

I seen one of your threads on another forum and I'm very happy for you d90king. You must feel very fortunate to have been in the position to have Larry build this for you.

Wow, that's a stunner! I agree a black or maybe Sniper Gray cerakote trigger would look right at home on your new shooter.

I had no idea LAV was doing ANY builds any longer with his training schedule. I always figured one day he would pick it back up. How did this come about? Friend's and Family thing or what?

Yes you are mistaken, Larry Vickers is regarded as one of the absolutely best 1911 builders in the world,

Sorry for the delayed responses guys! I have been swamped and bouncing around... Thank you all for the kind words. It is a very special 1911 for multiple reasons.

Pretty much... A buddy of mine (he's also a member here) helped design the Vickers Tactical Baseplates. I was lucky enough to work a couple of builds into the deal.

It is one hell of a pistol from one of the great builders of Custom 1911's.
