    It began life with me as a basket case, that was missing parts. Over the last six months I have been making changes .

    no disrespect intended since I built mine on my Norinco I've had since 1995...

    Durocoat, McCormick Non-gunsmithing rear sight, Para hammer, Wilson Combat internals, Wolff Springs, OEM frame, slide and barrel, STI grip saftey, it's a deeper black than my crap picture shows

    Haven't looked for Pachmeyers yet, maybe at the upcoming Ft Worth show...

    Very nice!

    How does it shoot?

    I just picked up a LNIB Norinco Deluxe, that has factory wood grips.

    I did not have a chance to shoot it yet, but it appears to be a very solid, well built 1911.

    Norincos are definitely very well built 1911s, srothman. It will be the next, and probably last, production 1911 I buy.

    Congrats on yours.

    I used the matt black...this one

    http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=756251

    was really easy..considering i Third World engineered it...

    made a drying box out of plywood, with a heatlamp inside. used a $15 airbrush from Hobby Lobby, with two cans of compressed air. This was in 2006 and it's held up great. I did muck up the first run...used thinner to remove without curing...reprepped and dryed off..and then reapplied. 2nd time was the charm. The parts are a mix of blued, stainless from various sources (STI, Wilson, OEM, Smith/Alexander) and I just wanted a uniform finish. the grips are off Ebay, I think they are Kimber, and still not sold on them. May go with a nice walnut or Pachmyers when the show comes to Fort Worth in 2 weeks. Not an exact replica of the MEU/SOC, but then I'll never be able to afford the Kimber version!

    Shoots point of aim. was a little to the right, so I just used a wood block and tap a lil, shoot,tap shoot a lil....and it's dead on now at 25 yards with the Novak front dovetailed in the front. Groups can run 2" easy, and a past friend that was a Master Limited got them under 1.5" with no flyers from a rest. I always have fliers....:crying:

    shoot mostly ball, 230 grain Poly and FMJ, but will feed 200 gr semi-wad (shot that almost exclusivly when this was my Limited 10 piece) and 230 grain Hydrashocks.

    I love this gun. I'll never get rid of it. I just hope to afford a 9mm 1911 to pair up with it

    No disrespect taken. Yours looks great too. Mine isn't an exact copy of the MEU/SOC pistol either. I liked the idea that the Marine Corps picked parts to make a good compromise between basic and user friendly, without compromising the combat toughness of the pistol.

    I used a craft store airbrush to apply the Norrells Moly Resin on mine and a toaster oven to bake the parts.
