    Sent a 1981 70's series colt to Brandon awhile back and my time has come! I asked him if it would be ok to post some of the progress pics here on addicts and he said OK! If anyone would like to see more he has several on his Facebook page.
    The only kicker is since I sent it to Brandon I've gotten out of 45's and went to 9s...

    Looking great! I bet when you get it in hand you will fall in love with .45's again!

    Kyle: You will not be disappointed. The 1911 in my avatar is a Bunker Arms custom and is the pistol in the background of Brandan's home page also on his 1911 custom page. It is fantastic and I have been following your rebuild. His bluing prep and bluing are second to none.

    I'm sure the pistol will be a fantastic addition to your collection, but giving up .45's? :eek:

    Best go ahead and order some mags, ammo. Looks like you're back in the 45 pool again.

    1911 milled from 1 solid billet, don't know how it will run, but it certainly looks great. Seriously, that will be real nice. So if you're outta the 45 game, then perhaps......
