I've been 1911 less for over a year until yesterday!


Pictured with the bottle of JW blue I've been wanting for years and finally pulled the trigger for my bday.



Soon to have a threaded barrel fitted, Ed brown single sided safety, and esmerelda grips. I already swapped a Ed brown GI guide rod setup into it.

Springfield 1911 A1. I bought this used in Plano TX, it was all ready customized by an unknown gunsmith. I wish I knew who did it cause I think they did good work.

Sure! I ordered a TiRant45 for it. Not because I need it but because I'm addicted to buying silencers(Own 10 now). lol

The TiRant45 has a very cool option were they sell a short threaded piston that sits flush with the backcap of the silencer so when its mounted on a 1911 with GI recoil system the suppressor can sit as flush as possible (no guide rod to hit the back of the suppressor). Not only does this look better but its shorter. In the mean time while the ATF takes thier sweet time processing my paperwork I'll run my Osprey45 on it.

I just dropped off my barrel for fitting, single sided safety install, and recrown stock barrel flush with new bushing. I'll make a video review of it once my esmerelda grips come in

Always happy to try something a little different. They do look good. Now I am definately going to have to look into checkering the front strap.
Ever notice how stock grips seems to multiply when you put em in a drawer ?

only sometic differences are the rubber finger grip and the pile o' skulls grips, which are twice as thick as regular grips thank god im 6'4" 230lbs cause they actually made the gun so much more comfortable for me, but a couple of my friends and my gf can no longer grip it lol (better for me no more sharing haha)

This is the "before" image. I sent it to SACS last week for a carry bevel and armory coat on the frame.



Dave from SACS said they would make him look like his little brother

Ultra Compact just back from SACS!

Had lots of little things done, and man am I happy with SACS work. Awesome! Back yesterday and itching to shoot it!

- Stainless mainspring housing
- Left side only GI thumb safety
- Replace and hand tune extractor and ejector with Stainless parts.
- Match frame to slide
- Match rear of frame to rear of slide so that it is continuous
- Uniform bead blast finish

Feels tight and great! Thanks for checking it out!

Thanks man, very excited about taking it out to the range. Enjoy the traditional feel with the mil-spec thumb safety. I was worried about the 20 LPI Ed Brown mainspring housing being too coarse to hold but I found it supprisingly comfortable and the exact amount of grip i was looking for. (also glad to get rid of that non-traditional ILS). For the origal gun being under $700, i am pretty happy with the carry sized/series 70 style piece. Hopefully the tuned ejector will put the spent casings somewhere other than right between my eyes! haha! Be safe!
