I really like these grips, Guess I'll leave these on for awhile.
my New Years baby.
One of my favorites. Good Luck.
One of my favorites in the collection... S&W 1911PD (Commander-sized)
It began life with me as a basket case, that was missing parts. Over the last six months I have been making changes .
From something worse than this,
Couple more of the ole Kimber:
MEU/SOC INSPIRED!!! I like it too, but mine's is a Norinco I Will post pics later on!
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...

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.
Whoops quoted the wrong one
Which Duracoat black did you use?
I used the matt black...this one
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....
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
nice nice Springfield..really great post..nothing like looking at 1911 pics!!
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.
What kind of sights are those?
Where to buy?
