    Today I discussed my options for ordering an STI frame/slide kit with Chuck at Shooters Connection in Georgetown, KY. i originally was going to order the RangeMaster kit however it has a long dust cover which I don't like and they are cast instead of forged. Chuck recommended the 1911 5" Slide/Frame, Forged, Checkered, Ramped - Special Order. It cost a little more however it is forged and the checkering alone would be over a hundred dollars, so it's a wash if I want a nice build. I'll be using the Dawson adjustable rear fiber optic sight with a Dawson 110 fiber optic front sight. That's all the good news, now for the bad news start the clock 4-6 weeks. This will give me time to order the goodies to go with the kit. Looks like a Wilson barrel, Nowlin ignition set, Dawson sights, trigger?, Wilson Bullet Proof slide stop and thumb safety, STI BTGS. Other parts still in the works depending on if I bobtail the frame. Ed thanks for the lead:hail:!

    No problem man. They will have lots of the parts you will want in your build. Nice people there.
