The only photos that I've seen were in a story in American Handgunner about Mark teaching a 1911 class at one of the NRA Summer Gunsmithing classes (Lassen College IIRC)

Not only do I want to see the whole gun assembled, I want one.

That would be just too much fun chambered for something like 460 Rowland - assuming the comp. could be built into the slide. 6" slide + 5" barrel? Ok, it might be time for me to go take my meds..

Woooo Chuck……. I never did the machining on THAT gun! Marc did that gun.

Marc Krebs was the originator of putting the 'snake skin' treatment on the frontstrap of a 1911. He perfected it and got the measurements perfect.

All's I did was copy it and only put it on a few frames with Marc's permission. I was probably the second guy.

Marc gets all the credit for being the FIRST to do it. Man! Does this guy have an over active imagination or what? This guy is incredible.

You stud Pete,

We have done some of the serrations and we with permission call the Krebs serrations also. others have coppied them too and probably call them origional or something neat like that.
