    This is the gun I built during the first 1911University.com class a couple of weeks ago. I finally got around to finishing up the cosmetics the way I wanted them.

    It is a .45Auto Government Model 1911 with a long three hole trigger set to 3lb 8oz short roll. It has 100% leg to slide stop contact and match tolerances throughout.

    It's been a long time since I did this particular idea, in fact, almost 9 years now. The gun is matte finished but the edges are all done by hand in carry bevel fashion. Then I polished them to a mirror finish before bluing. This gives the guns a particular "framed" look. It also illustrates ones skill and ability to use a file and stones...or not...depending on how the bevels turn out. Also, all the small parts were polished to a mirror shine before bluing and the holes in the trigger have polished bevels.

    I also choose to do the Marvel Pattern Cut (MPC) that my teacher showed me and gave me permission to use many years ago. It is a pattern cut that has always appealed to me as a classy design. It also gives great grip on the front strap and mainspring housing when coupled with stippling.

    The gun also features the CCP Grip Safety, prototype thumb safety, slide stop, mag catch, hammer, sear, disco, strut, carbon fiber grips, dovetail front sight blank and buried/protected rear sight installation.

    I'm using a 23lb Wolff mainspring and a 18.5lb Springco USA recoil spring.

    I hope you all enjoy it looking at it. It was a lot of fun to build and it sure does shoot good.

    SOLD!

    Thank you,
    Joe Chambers
