    This is a pretty contentious place lately. I'm sure a few will say that
    this is uglier than a sack full of ape asses.
    Me? I kinda like it!

    Excellent work! The only thing I could do without would be the lightening grooves.

    My opinion is the same. It is not ugly at all, very nice work, just the horizontal cut outs not to my liking. I'd own it and not be scared to pull it out on the range. :supergrin: I absolutely love the work on the bushing and recoil spring plug.

    I really like the round butt and mag well entrance.
    No doubt everything is well fitted and it is reliable and accurate.

    Most of the rest of that cosmetic stuff would be a waste of your time and my money on MY gun. No doubt you have a customer for it who is just crazy about it.

    Congrats man. That's the beauty of 1911 personalization. It doesn't matter who else likes it....it's yours and that's the only opinion that matters. Can't wait for the range report. :thumbsup:

    Nice work Chuck. Not for me as it looks a little busy but there's no doubting your craftsmanship.

    Question and you can PM me if you don't want to put it here, but do you have any pics of a 10mm 1911 with both target crown options? 11* and 45* I believe? I always see pics of .45s being crowned but I'm curious as to what each cut looks like on a 10mm as it's something I'm wanting done.

    Thanks!
