Gents, I have been wanting to start this thread for quite a while. The concept is as follows: Post up photos of your less than $100 ea. (+/-) upgrades to your 1911's. This does NOT include grips. Upgrades can be aesthetic, functional, or BOTH . . . . . This thread is for all "home smiffs" to share their tricks and tips for adding form and/or function to your favorite 1911's. Work can be performed by yourself, or if you have a good source for outside improvements, share them here. I'm looking for things the average guy can accomplish without access to monster mills or lathes. I set the bar for the upgrades at $100 ea. (+/-) as most would be able to afford that budget. I am soft on the Stan Chen SI magwells, so those qualify on the "plus" side. I'll start off: My stock Ruger SR1911-10mm as pulled out of the box: Improvements: S&A Arched Mainspring / Magwell Fusion K-hole Flat Trigger Cylinder & Slide Light-pull Sear Spring (took the rattle out of the grip safety, lightened trigger pull) Ambi-safety (a Springfield EMP-40 take off - got in a trade for some Wilson grips) Now it's your turn. Post yours up . . . . . .
