heres my 1911
Keep in mind im no gunsmith. But i have managed to assemble a somewhat "custom" 1911. This is an essex frame and slide that was fitted by a gunsmith several years ago before he passed away. I acquired it through his son in law who is also a gunsmith. All the internal parts are just drop in type parts out of brownells. I installed a 25 pound mainspring and have managed to get the trigger down to around 3 pounds. All it needs to be finished is a set of sights. Not the most "tricked out .45 in the world but im proud of it.
