    Here's a couple pics of Sandys newly built CO 1911. It still needs to have the slide blended to the rear of the frame and be sent out for real front strap checkering and the ceracote color of her choice. We ran out of time as the competition season is upon us so that will have to wait till next winter.

    SA RO frame, Remsport slide, Kart barrel, EGW bushing, Harrison TR fire control and Wilson BP extractor and small parts. Grips by Jason Landrio of CVL Gunworks, Slide Milling by Dustin Housel of Joplin Mo, barrel, slide and bushing fitting by Dennis Amsden of St. Johnsbury Vt.

    1300 breakin/tuning rounds thru it and She's picking up the dot faster than I did and it's making for improved accuracy over her PM-9.

    Happy Wife=Happy Life.
