    My final SA Custom Carry is finally done. This one has been easting away at me for a few reasons, but that's all behind me...I hope.

    Specs:

    5" 1911 .45acp
    Fit slide to National Match Frame
    Bar-Sto Match Barrel - Flush cut with 11 degree drown
    EGW Carry Bevel Bushing
    EGW Monogram Carry Bevel Plug
    Highcut front strap (Colt style)
    Heinie SlantPro rear sight
    Front tritium sight
    C&S Super Match hammer, sear, disconnector. 3.5# pull
    Solid long curved trigger.
    Ed Brown Extended thumb safety
    CYLINDER & SLIDE forged slide stop, flush cut with frame
    Carry Bevel
    Ed Brown grip safety
    Legacy Custom flat mainspring housing butt rounded
    Hardchrome entire pistol
    Machine Checkering front strap and mainspring housing 20lpi
    Grips – G10 Grips for the time being.




    AND NOW, for the pics

























    Don't have any...the pistol is only done and on the way to my FFL, not in my hands yet :tongueout:



    It may stay in my collection, or if someone who likes hard chromed pistols wants it, maybe a deal will be meet. I haven't been able to decide since it's not in my hands.


    It feels like Christmas in July, this 1911 is on the way, my Novak Colt is almost done, my Milt Sparks order is shipping, and I have a HK45 on the way. I think I truly am done until 2012...so much for being done buying pistols.

    I blame RMA for the two HK's.

    Awesome Gary, I really hope it works out for you. I don't think I would be as patient.

    I had to help train Iraqi Army buffoons when I was AD, so this SA ordeal wasn't anything compared to those dip****s. I guess I still have some patience left after all.

    Very cool, Gary. Be sure to post some pictures and a range report when you get it.

    Pics should be quick as long as my FFL gets it logged in in a timely manner. Range report.....might be a little longer.

    On a side note, I'm very appreciative of what you told me about your 1911 situation. I'm going to pass on him after all, which is good since Novak's is close to completing my build.

    I love how you dangled the "hard chrome" out there for one of the regulars! :supergrin:

    I do hope this one performs as well as you need!

    Congrats, any reason why you did not go with a Kart NM Barrel over Bar-Sto?

    No real reason honestly. I have several builds with Kart's, I just wanted to try a different barrel. I was going to have a Nowlin barrel used but I talked myself out of it.

    No problem......I usually don't air dirty laundry like that, but when I got your email stating your intentions, I figured I had a duty to at least give you the information.

    I just had a butterfingers moment with my camera so no pics for the foreseeable future :animlol:



    But to have at least a pic here for now, the one SA I should have never sold.
