Thanks for the compliments.

DHart, Can you tell me what kind of wood the grips on the Springfield TRP are made of? Also, I'd like to know more about the Esmerelda grips on the Series 70. Both are beautiful grips.

The TRP is wearing Ahrends smooth Cocobolo Combat grips (from Brownells) and the Series 70 Colt is wearing grips from:

I shortened and shaped it with a belt sander (the benchtop kind). I used an 80 grit belt at first, and a 120 grit belt when I got close.

For blending the inside of the magwell I used a dremel to rough it in, and a file to finish it.

Once I was all done with metal removal, I sandblasted it, and then lightly rubbed it with 00 steel wool.

Yep, as aclundwall stated, it is the Comp-Tac Locking Paddle. I got it for IDPA. For everyday carry, I use a Tucker Texas Heritage with the MC Operator.

I wonder if it even fires? It doesn't even look like its been fired! Safe Queen? Maybe, but who cares; that's one mighty fine 1911.

Those grips look great! Are they actually grip panels or some sort of painted rubber strip?

Glad you liked it guys. Fortunately, it does shoot. And lots of accuracy for the money, too. That pic was taken last week when it came out fresh from the smith (as a reminder to me how it used to look once the beatings and abuses of competition start.)

Also, that grip is just plain 3M stair tread tape, the one you can get from any hardware store. I just combined the black and grey ones and painted them using some leftover spray paint I got lying around.

Just an old rat gun for the bottom of the tool box.


I'd like to add a magwell, blue or SS?
And I'm jealous of others camera skills.

Pawn shop find

I found this pistol at a pawnshop. Turned out its been a IPSC champion, been to the nationals and has a host of other match wins under its built. Its in 38 super and a real tack driver. No recoil at all and you can hit the bullseye all day long with that C-more little red dot at 30 yards. The trigger measures just over 1.5 pounds.
Cheers,
Ty

Even better, I talked to the pistol-smith that built it (happens to be a good friend as well) and another guy that was on the same shooting team as the previous owner. The original owner has won a lot of titles in IPSC and other associations. Shooters need money too.

I know the owner of the shop and he new that I may be interested and pulled the three pistols from the safe, I took the pick of the bunch. Now I am ready to make the jump to IPSC open

Funny thing is I was able to pull the whole picture together just by telling what gun lube was being used, and the overall workman ship of the pistol helped too.

I got a 3000 pistol for about a grand.
Cheers,
Ty

Hi guys. Just joined on reccommendation of a friend from another board. I have what I understand is a relatively rare 1911. From what I have been able to figure out it was manufactured in 1920 and began life as a mexican governmental piece. If anyone else is able to tell me more about it, please do. Serial # on it is C-12**75.

Here is an old shot of it:
