awesome barrels. The ultimatch is their basic bull barrel. They have some very nice ported barrels. @mosinvirus his build 8 used one and was quite cool. Would be nice to hear how much it tamed the recoil.

Sounds like a adventitious build for a first time builder
Exspensive parts
My small advice is make sure your tooling is place before you start it’s very important
More important than having parts in my opinion
If you have questions feel free to ask
Look at some of the 1911 build threads
They have lots of info in them

Agreed. I am very meticulous by nature. I have probably purchased more tools than necessary but prefer to have more than I need and do the job right. Have ready both of Kuhnhausen’s vol I and II on the Colt 45 automatic and have watched most of @Mosinvirus videos. Ive already done trigger job, beavertail fitting, new thumb safety fitting, hammer and sear work before. The barrel fitting is what I believe will probably be the biggest challenge and look forward to it. I appreciate the advice and I am sure will have lots of questions as I go.
