My Essex/IMI A1 build happily went past it's 1000th round downrange today.
I'm surprised no one has posted yet.
These are the types of gun that appeal to me nowadays.
You've built a very nice example.
Proof simple can be sexy, really like the short trigger.
I'm diggin it! Looks great!
Put in a long trigger and I would dig it.
.........the round count will be 1050 by COB tomorrow!
I like simple and clean in 1911's
Just my style - unless you have gorilla hand short triggers are better- anyone regardless of hand size can handle the gun which is not the case with long triggers. And here in the north I have gloves on often in winter. Shooting with gloves on is good practice and the short trigger makes this much easier.
While deployed in the military gloves are worn for protection regardless of season and I noticed the first pics of the marsoc colt showed a short trigger which makes a lot more sense than the long trigger shown on later models
Love those short Harrison triggers! I think my favorite 1911 is my
recently acquired Colt, just enough modern touches with all the classic lines.
Sometimes, simple is just better,........
Very nice.It just doesn't get any better than a classic GI.
Well,..how did She shoot?
FAAWRENCHBNDR is this the way this Colt came out of the box? if yes do you have a model # ? I have a liking for the simple look now, I need a long trigger though.
It's one of ten from Colt's Custom Shop. It's a 1911 Enthusiasts Edition
Wounded Warrior project. A percentage of each went to WW.
I did replace the solid, long trigger with the short Harrison.
The same boring perfection, minute of turbine oil can bouncing across the desert to 80' or so.
Looks great FLIPPER, never tried a short trigger although I have fairly good sized hands.
Sweet,......how bout posting a few details and costs for this pistol build?
thanks, only ten, I have a better change of wining the lotto than finding one of those and then be able to afford it.
They are doing a second run........
