About to hand checker this frame


#61

I’m going to need to set up a polishing station.


#62


#63

Just another mock up
Polished most of the other parts
But the frame still need some work


#64

Looking great. When are you fitting the rest of parts?

Can’t wait for the range report!!!


#65

I shelved it for a few days I have a couple of side jobs going on so I’ll get back to it pretty soon

I’m blending and

polishing a Taurus 1911 at the moment


#66

Wouldn’t be a proper project without other projects at the same time :grin::grin::grin:


#67


This job is about done
Just waiting on the tjs custom shin from brownells to change it from a 80 series to a 70 series


#68

@Tactical_Reviews did you get some frames ?


#69

Not yet


#70

Damn fine work!


#71

Thanks


#72

I assume you will be taking it out for some range time as soon as the shim arrives.

Cant wait for it.


#73

I plan on it
I have never converted a 80 series gun before so I definitely want to make sure it’s functiinjng properly before he come to get it himself

I didn’t really change to much internally to this one most of it was external work
I wanted to dehorn this frame and slide but the customer didn’t want to pay for that so I didn’t


#74


Fitted all the new parts that are in this now
And put it together for a test fire tommorow


#75

Nice!!!


#76

Looks good, love 1911’s


#77

Thanks
Me too

@Mosinvirus took mine out this morning and ran 200 rounds through it
Ran flawless
It felt a lot better to shoot after checkering
Had gloves on though because it was 30 degrees this morning


#78

That is very good to know. Thanks for reporting back.
and Congratulations on getting your first hand checkering done.


#79

Thanks buddy


#80

@Mosinvirus have you filed more that one slide for the sights ?
