Not to start a war but Pete does it better than anyone I know. To own one of his blasters is the ultimate wet dream. I am fortunate to own a Single or two and call him my friend.

Come on Irv........I think you're pushing the envelope a little bit with the wet dream stuff.....but I'll take the compliment!

I have made the pilgrimage to Southern Exposure, great place, best instructors on the planet.

Not at all Master Pete, when I was younger I often yearned for a Single and dreamed of owning one. These day my wet dream comes from my prostate not functioning correctly.

Thanks Tim. I have 1911 starting with a Bob Chow pistol I bought while in the university (probably 1967) and many more from some of the masters like Swenson but Peteís are my pride and joy. Just wonderful to handle his pistols.

Couple twists in a wide, red rubber band will keep that from happening until you can make it to the head.

I keep coming back to look at those pictures. I can only dream of owning a masterpiece like that.

VZ Grips.....I see what you did here! I'll wait until I see if I have won before getting sucked into another set of grips......those are cool.

Guess I better check if that color combo will ever be offered before getting too excited here.

Pete, Can you give some details about the Combat Trigger? The teflon bushing easter egg intrigues me a tad bit...

Hi Joe,

That trigger starts out as a straight, long blank, and there is a built up pad of metal for over travel (no screw) so it needs to be cut to the length.

I don't like over travel screws because people like to 'screw' with them, and most maker's put a hole through the face, I don't like the hole in the face.

Harrison is a nice design, it screws in from the back, no hole in the front.

The curve on the face, north & south, stands up straighter than a standard 1911 trigger curve, a lot of folk's ask for the straight flat triggers for some reason, they just don't look right in the gun to me, so I put a slight curve on it to add a little balance.

The face east & west is a full 1/8" radius, so the trigger is a 1/4" wide, so @ a 1/8" it is a full radius side to side.

And last, it guides on Derin bushings, Delrin is a type of Teflon made tougher. Not absolutely necessary, most trigger glide smooth without.

Man! I just realized there is no picture of the rear of the slide!

Jason serrated the rear of the slide by hand and matches the rear sight perfectly. Really nice job!

And the back of the grip panels are laser engraved with all the logo's.

The grip material is a new flavor from VZ Grips.

I'll see if he can get a picture............

Pete, I dislike the look of the straight trigger shoe also. Thanks for the update.
Joe

Joe, I'm with you.........

To me, a trigger face don't have to be real fancy, unless we are shooting a double action revolver, then it needs to be smoothed and rounded so it don't wear out you're trigger finger.

But everyone likes something different.

I don't like the holes or serrations I have to clean. And a smooth rounded trigger is fine for light trigger pulls. The important part is the smoothness of the sear release and the trigger travel...........

I’ve been on the range for the better part of the last week so I’m a bit late to this thread. That said, I gotta thank all the 1911 enthusiasts that entered and I know Pete and I are as excited about this project as you all.

Here are a few more photos I took in my shop that show some of the build process, test target, etc.

The winner was announced. I'm sad to say it wasn't me.

They took the winner's name off. Obviously it wasn't me or you I'm sure the winner was contacted.
