    Hey there everyone, I have poked around the site for long enough... time to contribute. My tinkering on my 1911's (grips, sights, fitting a few parts) has led me to the decision to heavily modify a few to my liking and see if I want to build one from the ground up. I recently aquired a mill and now have the bug to start whittling on a few 1911's.

    Anyhow, I have already benefited greatly from this site... so, thank you!

    For all the questions that lay ahead, again- THANK YOU!

    My Springfield Lwt Operator Champion is awesome- this one is getting a Bobtail and checkered front strap with some 10-8 and Ed Brown parts. I plan on cutting and crowning the barrel and then TiN coat the barrel.


    Another I'll start working on is a dream, it is a freakin' laser beam. Springfield Full Rail Operator TRP. I have run 1,000's and 1,000's of rounds through this one and it would likely be the last gun I would let go of. I do plan on adding 10-8 rear sight on it, and reworking the trigger/fire control group but the gun shoot absolutely beautifully and it just plain RUNS.

    I have a few others, but I am going to start with a few Springfield base models to build off of. I have a RI 10mm and I have had another 1/2 dozen Springfields over the years that have been traded or sold to fund other projects.

    Anyhow, there you go. My first post.
