    Hope Everyone has a Great Easter Weekend, had to put the final spit-shine on this Colt before getting to the ham.

    This build will be getting a Twin built end of the year, and should be a fine set of pretty basic, classic Colt builds . . .Enjoy!

    Kart NM Barrel
    EGW NM Bushing
    EGW BTGS
    JEM MSH

    Beautiful Colt Mr.Beining!
    I have to say, this forum has some the finest examples of a 1911, and what they could be. It never ceases to amaze me. Pure class!

    Fine looking pistol, I like the contrast between the Micarta and bluing.
