Went to my local gun store yesterday and a 5" Clapp jumped out at me.. Few things I didn't care for so decided to go home and do a little work. I limited myself to parts I already had sitting around.
So fit an Ed Brown thumb safety, Nighthawk trigger, Challis grip bushings, new grips, did a little trigger work to get it to a nice clean 3.5#, Flush cut and reverse 45 degree the factory barrel then shot the frame and all small parts with a matte graphite black Cerakote.
2015 is coming to an end, and most of us are probably scrambling around for that last minute gift. However, don't forget to give those ones you're wrapping those presents or staying up late putting the final touches on things for tonight a hug, a warm smile, and let them know that you treasure them most of all.
I know we are a gun forum, (or the real reason you had to get that second job to afford your addiction!) but I can't help to feel a bit nostalgic and want to let all of you know I wish you a very Merry Christmas, and only the best wishes in 2016 to you and your loved ones.
Took my son, just turned 17, and new SR1911 and Gen 4 G17 to the Range this past Saturday. I have to say we had a blast :biggrin1:. It was my son's first time shooting a pistol, his previous shooting has been a 22 rifle and 12Ga shotgun with the Scouts. Put 100 rounds thru the 1911 without a single issue using PMC 230 Grain FMJ. I was not too concerned with accuracy, well not too much anyway...
I hope each and everyone one of you have a safe, and happy Thanksgiving.
If you are traveling, please be mindful of others out there...and that we all have a lot to be thankful for. We're a family here at 1911Addicts, and I'm thankful I've gotten to know each of you more and more this year.
Stay Safe, and keep those addictions fed, come back often!
A big heartfelt thank you to Rogers Precision for supporting 1911Addicts!
