    well the day of reckoning is close.the CZ 1911A1 built is almost ready to start

    Mark(of Evolution Armory) and I spoke and have emaile d a bit. I decided to get some custom work done after all. my interest has been piqued by our fellow members lust for perfection through customization. This is a special chance to try my hand too.

    I did not realize from the pics I saw that this gun had an original style 1911 rearsight(meh). that must go.and then I started wondering what if....

    so here is the build list I came up with for this unique gun:


    true radius sear

    flush cut reverse crown barrel(it has the Kart barrel )

    checkering of front strap wa s already done


    Stan chen round butt (MSH)-will match front strap checkering

    flatten top and cut arrow serrations top of slide


    french border top of slide

    machine camfer bottom of slide

    gold bear front sight

    rear sight --undecided--may go with Jardin hook or bowmar adjustable

    gun will be finished by Baron tech in Ct--I LOVE and crave a glossy Baron blue and this gun is perfect for that mission
    pic and range report will follow for those interested

    Sounds great, I'll be looking forward to seeing the finished product!

    BTW, 10-8 makes a U-groove rear sight that replaces the GI style rear and retains the clean look of the original, it sounds like it might fit well with the style of your build. I had one put on the Commander I had built for my son and it really pairs well with a gold bead front. http://www.10-8performance.com/1911-nm-rear-sight/
