    Well, I got my third pistol from Guncrafter Industries from my initial order today. I was so impressed with Brian's (bac1023) pistol, I have been sitting on the fence about whether I was going to sell the 2nd one, or keep if for myself. The pistol showed up today, and it didn't take long for me to make my decision. I grabbed three boxes of ammo and headed out to my shooting area. 150 rounds of flawless, dead on accurate shooting and I am getting more and more convinced that Guncrafter Industries 1911 .45's just may be the best kept secret in the semi-custom market. This pistol is the standard "No Name" except Alex flush cut and crowned the barrel for me. After I finished up with my range session, I cleaned it up and wore it for the rest of the day in my Bullman TSA-HP IWB holster. I realized really quick that the "Shredder" grips that come on the pistol are named that for a reason. They are excellent when shooting the pistol, but they will make quick work of any flesh they come in contact with while wearing IWB. I am convinced if I would have left they on for any longer, I would have exposed a damn kidney in short order. I ended up changing them out with a set of VZ Frag grips in black which really go well with the 15 lpi checkering. I cannot say enough positives about the simplicity, yet total attention to detail on these pistols. Nothing that has not been said before with the other threads on the NN. Here are a few pictures I took after my range session....excuse the lint.

    As it should, Brian.....I know you carry a lightweight framed Kimber for ccw, but do you plan on carrying your NN at all? Just curious....I am still laughing at the "shredders". They are about the gripiest (is that a word?) grips I have ever used, but they are brutal as hell for carry! The shredder name is fitting, but they just as easily could have called them the piranhas. :)

    Well, let's put it this way...

    If I ever decide to carry a full size 1911, the NN is in serious contention. :supergrin:

    The melonite finish is good carry finish. I had a HK P7M8 that I had melonited. I carried that thing hard for a couple years and it held up like a champ.

    Yeah, melonite holds up very well.

    Its a great finish, albeit not overly pretty.

    I hear ya.....Blued guns are pretty, but don't hold up worth a damn with heavy ccw usage, especially in the heat and humidity in the southeast.

    Yeah, bluing is the worst for that. A blued finish will show wear immediately.

    It's a go, I'm just having a hard time deciding between a 4.25" or a 5". :cool: I'll call you tomorrow.

    Very nice choice of grips. That pistol is all business.

    You can always change out grips.
