    That is one beautiful 1911. One off custom or is a production model?

    For my personal 1911 tribute, I found one of the Anniversary III models of the Colt 1911. I wanted something that I will keep forever, something retro, but also something I can shoot without bloodying my hand. (as I did with the first few hundred rounds through this - before the beavertail was added.)
    Sent it to Colt Custom. Basic tactical upgrades. Lowered, flared ejection port, throated barrel, replaced GI sights with gold dot front and Harrison Retro rear sight. New trigger. New hammer (retro bobbed), magwell, beavertail. No ambi safety. No checkering on frontstrap. Black Oxide finish.
    It won't appeal to everyone. But it's a nice mix of old and new - for me.

    Very nice! I always admire a "no frills", simple 1911.

    BTW, I also admire your sig line. :wavey:

    Here's my Springfield GI I posted before. Unfortunately it no longer looks like this since I've customized it over the past few months. It's still at the smith getting the finishing touches. Still a neat pic.

    Colt Combat Commander - bought new in 1970 - a few mods and NP3 later

    Colt I built in the mid-70's using factory "seconds" slide and frame - just to learn how the 1911 works. Wilson Hard Chrome and a .22 conversion kit done to match

    Para Ordnance P14-45 - NP3 Frame with Black Roguard slide - early production - several thousand rounds downrange with zero Malf's

    Thanks.

    Yes, its a stock Infinity trigger. However, the whole pistol is custom built.

    Wow! I cannot fully express how jealous this pic makes me. What a beautiful (and apparently accurate) gun. :wow:

    As an aside, I'm curious as to the back-story of your screen-name (I only ask because I see you have a name-tape of such attached to your gear in one of your pics).
