only the essentials back in '71, PRC 77, helmet, and .45. Off to a just over-run outpost across the river.

Fusion Firearms 1911 work

I got this back from Bob Serva at Fusion Arms earlier this year. Fun project. Finish is same as Sig's Oil Rubbed Bronze as used on their Spartan 1911's. I just put a magwell on since I got it back and will be using it in local USPSA matches.

Looks like something that might have belonged to.... "Gold...fin-ga, he's the man, the man with the midas touch!"

I really like the WC extended slide release and Pachmayr grip. Fiber Optic front sight is next.

To me it's the 1911 that's about to go to work on whatever she has in her sights.
I love her belt buckle.

I second the WC extended slide release. Did you get the BP one or the casted one? I got the BP $63 one and put a plunger detent in it to keep it away from the slide while shooting and to guarantee no premature slide lockup. I do it to all slide stops now.

Seeing as how modern handguns use a light spring to keep the slide stop pressed down I don't understand why they haven't made the detent a standard in all slide stops. It acts exactly if there were a spring holding it down until the mag follower engages it. I just started doing it with a #43 cobalt 6" drill bit using the plunger tube as a guide and a drill bit holder and my fingers to start the divot. Then after I get a good center point I take the slide stop out and put the bit in a power drill and only drill as far as the tip goes. I think the tip is a split point 130 degree bit, but not sure. The main thing is not to over do it, but done just right it really makes sense. I would say that's the only design flaw in the 1911 is not making the slide stop detent a standard procedure. It sure is nerve racking drilling such a precise divot into a beautiful $63 part! Remember to take all the time you need fitting or doing any specialty work, there is no hurry!

See if the Photo link works.

New here, and this is freshly assembled. I just need a day off to try it out.

A few pics of my Colt 1911 manufactured April 1918. I have an original 1918 holster as well.

Just picked up this Springfield ranger officer champion. I'm loving the way it shoots.

Looking more like guns on vacation than guns at work?

Just picked up this DW Eco in .45. I put a Chambers Custom super short flat trigger in it. I absolutely love it. Hope to be carrying it soon, after ordering a G Industries IWB. @ 25oz unloaded, it'll be an all day carry for sure. Picture is kind of dark, but hey...I'm not up on the times these days. :-)
