    OK, I went from it's stock form here

    and now I am here with it.

    Added a few different things such as EGW Barrel Bushing, Wilson Slide stop, and a flat mainspring housing.

    I plan on keeping it this way. I plan on abusing this gun. We'll see how it works.

    I know one thing, every day I become more and more of a 1911 guy.

    Nice. Looks like you joined the cocked and unlocked crowd!:thumbsup:

    Let us know (in detail) how much abuse it can handle.

    Looks good! Everyday I seem to change my mind as to which set of included grips I like better. I guess that's the beauty of having 2 sets; they can change when I do!

    Is there such a thing as a "Cocked and Unlocked" mentality out there?
    Afraid you might forget to click the thumb safety off?
    In such a high degree of readiness you don't need the extra movement of clicking the thumb safety off.
    "That's what the grip safety is for."
    I know... thats why there is the half cock notch.

    Seems like an accident waiting to happen.
    Please reconsider this. It's pure fulishness and irresponsible to those around you.

    Just add a "Quack trigger" and it will be perfect.

    Is it? I have some guns that don't even have a safety.

    I carry it on me with the safety on or if I know it is loaded, but even that seems like overkill. I don't touch the trigger unless I am ready to shoot it.

    I'll think about it. Make me an offer.
