    Thanks to Crazy John at 1911Heaven.com. Although the wait was long and frustrating at times, John was professional and a pleasure to do business with.

    Thanks Fella's

    It's been a long wait. But so far I am thrilled with the build.
    The Slide fit is very tight. I had to cock the hammer before racking the slide.
    I could not engage the safety one handed. But after cycling it several times it finally loosened up. I do like the fact that it is very positive. My hope is the the single sided safety that I had fitted and finished with be as positive.

    I will be at the range on Friday to warm it up.
    I can't wait!!

    I prefer single sided safeties. Aren't you worried that the ambi will score up the frame?

    Good Point DB
    Yet another reason to replace it with the other one that I ordered with the gun.


    When does your other UTC coming in and how did you speck it out?

    I should be getting my UTCs tomorrow.
    Naked slide, 20lpi front strap and flush fitted slidestop and thumb safety pins. Oh and no fcs. Single sided safety is standard on utcs.

    What was the thought process on getting 2 identical UTC's?
