Hey Jon,

I think those grips are VZ Gatorbacks. Are they the aqua color he came out with or the green and black? They look great whatever they are. Fine pistol.

Sincerely,

PastorDW

Thanks guys! They are indeed Gatorbacks. They are the blasted black canvas. They get darker with use and go very black when wet. Awesome grips and don't irritate my skin after 18 hours of carry like I thought they would. A little easier on the skin than the standard grips it came with.

My new everyday carry....

* The gun has a blued slide over stainless... I'm doing everything I can to get a few thousand draws on it so the slide looks how'd I'd like... Then, right when it gets there, I'll probably want a change and send it off to have the whole thing IonBonded! Now that I've had this one 2 days, I'm getting ready to order another simialr 1911. It never ends!

Just trying a set of Raasco Cocobolo Dymondwood grips. the color is a little lighter than i expected, but the checkering (20LPI) is nice and grippy.

Yuk. PM me and I'll take them off your hands quickly and spare you further embarrassment.

J/K -- I think they look great. Really classy.

My New Exec Carry with Sarge's Maple Burl Grips. This is such a joy to shoot. Got the new Mags last week, and now waiting for Bullard's Bodyguard holster and mag pouches before carrying.

Very nice!

I like Bullard's work. I'm wearing one of his gun belts right now. The Brown/Bullard should be a fantastic carry combo.

Top notch. I have a double-thick 1.5" belt. I've been wearing it just about everyday for well over a year and it is great. It's very stiff. The stitching is unbelievable for something hand-made. The color has aged beautifully. I have one of his Dual Carry holsters for a revolver and it is great, too. Again, well made and very comfortable. I have a Sparks VMII as my primary carry holster for my Brown, but I'm thinking about picking up another Bullard for OWB.

Be sure to post pics of that Bodyguard holster when it comes in. I'm looking forward to hearing your perspective on it.

Quack,

Your pistol and grip combo looks sweet!

On my monitor the grips look to be a little on the "orange" side. Are they really on the orange or red side? I'm thinking about trying a set of smooth Raasco grips myself.

Well, actucally I have a Kobra Carry arriving today, but I think I'll sell it since I ordered a more customized Executive Carry. The executive carry wont be done for a month I bet. Waiting is the hard part!

Let me know what you think about the Titanium Firing Pin - that's the only option I'm still undecided upon with my executive carry order.

What does a titanium firing pin do for you?

Less inertia on a gun drop to hit the primer and go boom...it's standard on the CA compliant models.

Brown told me that roughly 75% of all CA guns they sell get sent back to them, once transfered to the new owner in CA, to get a real firing pin put in. The Titanium "sometimes" produce light strikes.

Maybe, maybe not.

Some makers of ammo have notoriously hard primers. As some are notoriously soft. NOTE: Military ammo always has harder primers. But their FPs set against their primers.

You mean for the M4/M16 right? Not the 1911's.
