So I just got home from the range. First off, gun store counter guys are idiots. 100 rounds each of S&B and pmc bronze. 40 rounds of some old aluminum cased cci blazer. Tripp's, a couple crappy Springfield mags and a colt mag. Not a hiccup. 9mm in a gov size gun is frickin awesome. This thing is a laser. No target pic because I'm dumb but I shot out the center and then started in on the corners. Tons of fun. I'm not a good shot but this made me look like one. Took me a sec to figure out where the sights were, they are right where they should be. Trigger is awesome and only going to get better. No take up, great break and the reset is stupid short. Ejection was great. Blew through the mags as fast as I could load em, she got a little warm :)

Love the hard use approach, I try to build em pretty but first of all and most importantly build them to shoot.

I know that the rear sight isn't ideal, only one that would work though. This thing is going to see carry time. I love it, I'm going to have to send you some shoes to cut that I don't mind scuffing up. Really glad you have a jig.

ETA: I keep going back and forth on what grips are my favorites. They both look good.

I'm patient lol.. Did you catch my note above?
Certainly did. That's what I like. I have a couple of different things I'm kicking around. I sold the Delta BTW. Either sending you a frame and starting from square one. Then I'm looking at a couple of carbon steel guns for a base build.

@FWoo45 you have some real keepers right there!

U all know how I feel about 9s, but this is beautiful pistol.
Those grips from you know who, are out of this world :happy:

I would keep convert it 2 a 45acp & never sell it LOL. It's way cool man.
Most important it's a 1911 :usa: made & tweeked in the USA.

Unless someone got a pair of beaters they wanna donate? I would but, honestly don't have much here anymore. Just ordered 6 more sets of really nice stuff from Bob. Some aboyna burl, some, feathered crotch walnut, a NBC d some masscar ebony. Some beautiful grips coming soon, and more ironwood soon.

Actually have a couple exhibition sets coming.

Another 200 through it this morning right when the range opened. I wanted to keep going but some jag off was trying to sight in some ridiculous magnum deer rifle with a break on it in the lane next to me as I got through the 4th box of pmc bronze so I wrapped it up. At 15ish yards inside! People are idiots!

Anyways this thing is a laser. I know that some of this is that I'm just going to shoot a full size 9 better than a commander .45, I get that. All of my shooting was off hand and at a pretty rapid pace. The trigger really is amazing, reset is so short. First mag was at 25y then moved in to 10 and 15. Cold bore 25y first shot would've been a head hit. The rest of the mag either would've been as well or darn close and I'm far from a good shot. I really love this gun. Now I just have to find some .38 super close by or wait for Dillon to get dies in stock. Komifornia sucks, I can't even order .38 super anywhere in town.

Waiting on Dillon to send my 38Super dies too, just over two months now

This is great news Frank, 440 rounds down the pipe already, with accuracy and reliability; This is just what I want to hear as a builder..
I'm hoping to get back out in the AM. It's only good for a bit then the idiots show up. Looking forward to running it in class on Wednesday night.
