    I will do a complete build update when I get the time to do one properly. Till then some pics of my newest build.

    Base gun was a NIB Colt WWII Repro (it goes very nicely with my Harrison WWI)

    Enjoy!

    Thank you! It is an outstanding build, it not only looks like a million bucks, it shoots just as good.

    Thank you! They are John Harrison's new grips and they are awesome. The serrations do a great job in locking the gun in. I will be adding several other sets for other guns.

    I was fortunate once to shoot one of his personal 1911 builds...That was the first time I ever shot a 1911 it was so smooth. I would love to have a build by him one day.

    I seen one of your threads on another forum and I'm very happy for you d90king. You must feel very fortunate to have been in the position to have Larry build this for you.
