Cut away 1911

Got this from a shooter friend. It was made by a good smith who pasted away a while ago. Nice to be able to show folks what really goes on inside.

How very nice! What a great display aid...I could see something like that as a training aid like what we had in the Army for working on the weapons systems on the AH1

Extra cut to expose more of the firing pin.

Great grab, Greg!

Alliteration. Gotta love it.

Beautiful photos.

Looks pretty close to the cutaway which is frequently shown in Kuhnhausen's 1911 manuals.

I'd love to have one, but I'm sure they're quite expensive to buy one (assuming one can even be found for sale) and difficult to machine.

But the real question is: How does it shoot?

I'm thinking it would, if you replaced the barrel. If it isn't a dewat, is there an issue with the SN being largely removed?
Very neat cutaway.

I love cutaways! I made a run at one in an estate auction some years ago and thiught I would get out easy. Nope! A couple of "older" gentlemen (like I'm young) went after it and it quickly went beyond my budget.

I debate doing one every few years as a wall hanger, but the costs just get to be a bit much.

May we ask who the smith was?

Nice. One of the best cut-out examples and photos I've seen of the 1911.

Until I saw Rdb's comment, I was wondering about the "skeletonized" finger of the grip safety.

Thanks for sharing!
