601-939-7448. Call when you have some time to kill. Walter answers the phone himself and he will talk your ear off! he describes the whole process your gun will go through (3 step process). He is truely a southern gentleman and is one of the nicest people I have ever done buisness with.

John Harrison. It was great dealing with him and I highly recommend him if you are looking.

Absolutely beautiful!

Brutus:

Please post some photos when the pistol is complete.
Also post a full build sheet.
Thanks for sharing.

I've followed John Harrison's talented work for some time now. I also have three classic custom I's. Your project is truly inspiring.
Thanks again.

Brutus, that is one fine pistol. I have never seen a Kimber with the beveled slide and the square trigger guard. Th Mag well is different as well. I know this is a series I, how much custom work have you had done to this?

I guess since I broke my 1911 forum posting cherry by posting a pic of my new WWI repro in the colt section I should post a couple of photos of my slightly modified warrior

SA magwell
OD green VZ diamond backs
Polished Stainless wilson barrel bushing
polished stainless recoil plug






love the grips and after having the usual problems during break in and weeding out some of the bad mags that i had. The gun runs perfect

Thanks for the compliments guys! I'm paying for it now though, yes desert ironwood is gorgeous but take it from me and use a dremel to do all the shaping, I was dumb and used a rasp, my left thumb keeps dislocating now, waiting another 3 weeks to get into an orthopaedic person.... Have the dremel now at least, let me tell ya, you do one set and it becomes an addiction.....work thru the pain!!!!!

CLASSIC CUSTOM
S/N K034XXX

I got this NIB back in Jan '99. I've only put about a 100 rnd thru it as it is more of a safe queen then anything else. (I carry a Glock as my CCW)
-The grips are Ajax brand Sambar Stag. Got them some time in '99; back when they were a lot less then they are now.
- Hoster & mag carrier are from Wild Bill's. http://www.wildbillsconcealment.com/
