    Yeah, I guess that's ok, but it looked perfectly fine as it was. :dunno:

    You know, I did too. I think it came from under the seat of a Louisiana pickup truck.

    And it shot just fine!

    I got in the 1911 ether and got "project fever".

    But, don't worry. It gets shot often and shot a lot.:wavey:

    It shot just fine without a trigger, grip safety, magazine, or controls? Daaayum. They don't build 'em like that anymore.

    Seriously though...nice build. :thumbsup:

    Someone suggested stainless hex grip screws, so I tried a set from Ed Brown.
