As much as I try to stay away from a 1911, I cannot deny it.....
....no collection or arsenal is complete without a 1911. That is a fact. There is no justifying it.
Picked up this Springfield Lightweight Champion Operator last week. The dealer I got it from deals directly with SA, and had just got it directly from SA a couple days before. Wanna talk about factory fresh!
I just got all the goodies in for it, so I figure its time to reveal it in its final form-
1. Techwell "Carry" Magwell w/ Mil-Tac G10 Diamond Grips (I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Techwell system. Its so tight, with no gaps. Totally above and beyond my expectations)
2. Ankert Customs Pre-Cut Grip Tape for front strap. (It was only $10 for two of them, and I didn't need a whole roll of safety walk tape, so I figured, "what the hell, lets support the little guy")
I love the Techwell. I figured some fitting would need to be done, but that is not the case. It is, however, VERY tight, and you need to fiddle with it. I am happy to report that it blends seamlessly into the magwell of the gun itself, and that there are no gaps. I like the fact I can go from magwell, to no magwell, simply by removing the grips. I like how Techwell is working in conjunction with Mil-Tac to make these grips with the locking tabs for the Techwell itself.
Now that its done, I'm hoping to get to the range this coming weekend with it. I have no doubt she'll be a sweet shooter.
