This thing has more golf balls on it than I lose in a round...... well, maybe not.
I got this home today and had to take it down to its bare bones. I wanted to see how the true masters work their magic.
It's put back together with spit shine & oil. Ready to see the range. @azguy1911 said he couldn't wait to handle it. So I guess it's going to Scottsdale on my next drive north.
Wow. That's really nice. I appreciate that Mr. Rogers can and does make amazing guns from any quality frame and slide. It is a wonderful time to have so many options for a custom gunsmith to cut on. It is impressive to me how consistent today's guns are, just about across the board.
Of all the guns that I have hoped to own and shoot a Rogers is very high on the list, but I'm sure that's pretty common around here. I have never held or seen one in person. I think that a Rogers on a Ruger or Kimber is somehow maybe even more interesting than a Colt or SA simply because it isn't a common base gun but that's just my perspective. My jaw would be agape if I held a Rogers that was built on Colt serial number 4 or a Tisas made in Turkey last week.
Congratulations on the new gun and thank you for everything, including perspective on this subject that I simply did not and in many ways still do not have. I'm getting there and was in need of guidance along the way. It's wonderful that you are able to acquire that and I hope that you enjoy it.
Reminds me of the scene in the old series, Legends, when Sean Bean takes down a baddie and disarms him, looks at the gun, and says, "1911 Ruger ... PRICEY!" If it had been this one, I wouldn't have laughed my cajones off!
