I really like these grips, Guess I'll leave these on for awhile.

My basket case nears completion.

It began life with me as a basket case, that was missing parts. Over the last six months I have been making changes .

From something like this, (actually started worse than this, tiny sights and missing parts before I took pictures): I added Millet sights, and some parts out of my parts bin to get it running.

1911 Forums

To this: New trigger, grips, beveled the mag well, trigger job.

1911 Forums

To this: New beaver tail, hammer, more bevel in the mag well, raised front strap/triggerguard, EGW barrel bushing, and a coat of Norrels Moly Resin.

1911 Forums

MEU/SOC inspired. I'm considering an ambi safety if I can find one I like. If it needs to be more accurate I may fit a Kart Barrel.
MEU/SOC INSPIRED!!! I like it too, but mine's is a Norinco I Will post pics later on!

my own version of the MEU/SOC

no disrespect intended since I built mine on my Norinco I've had since 1995...

Durocoat, McCormick Non-gunsmithing rear sight, Para hammer, Wilson Combat internals, Wolff Springs, OEM frame, slide and barrel, STI grip saftey, it's a deeper black than my crap picture shows

Haven't looked for Pachmeyers yet, maybe at the upcoming Ft Worth show...

Very nice!

How does it shoot?

I just picked up a LNIB Norinco Deluxe, that has factory wood grips.

I did not have a chance to shoot it yet, but it appears to be a very solid, well built 1911.

Norincos are definitely very well built 1911s, srothman. It will be the next, and probably last, production 1911 I buy.

Congrats on yours.

I used the matt black...this one

http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpag...eitemid=756251

was really easy..considering i Third World engineered it...

made a drying box out of plywood, with a heatlamp inside. used a $15 airbrush from Hobby Lobby, with two cans of compressed air. This was in 2006 and it's held up great. I did muck up the first run...used thinner to remove without curing...reprepped and dryed off..and then reapplied. 2nd time was the charm. The parts are a mix of blued, stainless from various sources (STI, Wilson, OEM, Smith/Alexander) and I just wanted a uniform finish. the grips are off Ebay, I think they are Kimber, and still not sold on them. May go with a nice walnut or Pachmyers when the show comes to Fort Worth in 2 weeks. Not an exact replica of the MEU/SOC, but then I'll never be able to afford the Kimber version!

Shoots point of aim. was a little to the right, so I just used a wood block and tap a lil, shoot,tap shoot a lil....and it's dead on now at 25 yards with the Novak front dovetailed in the front. Groups can run 2" easy, and a past friend that was a Master Limited got them under 1.5" with no flyers from a rest. I always have fliers....

shoot mostly ball, 230 grain Poly and FMJ, but will feed 200 gr semi-wad (shot that almost exclusivly when this was my Limited 10 piece) and 230 grain Hydrashocks.

I love this gun. I'll never get rid of it. I just hope to afford a 9mm 1911 to pair up with it

No disrespect taken. Yours looks great too. Mine isn't an exact copy of the MEU/SOC pistol either. I liked the idea that the Marine Corps picked parts to make a good compromise between basic and user friendly, without compromising the combat toughness of the pistol.

I used a craft store airbrush to apply the Norrells Moly Resin on mine and a toaster oven to bake the parts.
