    Had it back for awhile, just got around to taking pics.

    Put about 300 rounds through it so far. Tack driver and easy to fast. I really like the front sight, they used a big gold bead.

    Been using Checkmate G.I. spec mags. Feeds ball, WWB JHPs and PDX-1s with out a hitch.

    lower and flared ejection port
    beveled magwell
    tightened frame/slide (didn't ask for it)
    Colt thumb safety
    Colt MSH
    Kart bbl & bushing
    corrected and polished feed ramp
    full internal beburring
    standard carry bevel
    tool steel hammer and sear @ 4 1/2 lbs
    Harrison hard use short trigger
    Ed Brown Hardcore plunger tube
    S.A. beavertail
    Novak wide notch rear with gold bead front
    Pachmayr grips (ugly but great)
    parkerized entire gun

    Beautiful! Simple, clean and deadly.


    Just as a 1911 should be.
