My Custom Colt is finished !!
« on: October 24, 2012, 07:21:23 PM »
The FedEx man dropped it off this morning and it is beautiful.

Some of the thing that were done, bevel the bottom edge of the slide, remove the roll marks from both sides of the slide, bevel the mag release hole and slide stop pin hole, mill flat and serrate @ 40lpi the top of the slide, serrate the rear of the slide, snakeskin treatment on frontstrap, ball cuts on the front of the slide, fit EGW beveled bushing and flush cut and recrown barrel at 11 degrees, XS 24/7 night sights
and matt hard chrome everything except sides of slide. Trigger breaks like a glass rod at 3.5 pounds.
 All internals and controls replaced with Wolf springs, EGW, 10-8, Ed Brown & Wilson Combat parts. The holster is a Matt Del Fatti.

The work was preformed by Rob & Crew @ ACW (ALCHEMY CUSTOM WEAPONRY)
Frontstrap Snakeskin treatment and top of slide milling & serrations were done by Neil Keller
I did the Bobtail.

I don't know if you have kids but that's something to hand down for generations.

I have 3 girls and I hope they appreciate my firearms and use them after I'm gone, and I hope my grandkids get them and appreciate them too.

That pistol is beautifull...

  John,

 Dog gone that is sweet! I now have two things I have to do! Figure out how to post pictures and buy that holster! I have been meaning to post the pics of my Custom Black 1911 from P3LLC.

 Thanks,

 John

Well done.  It's stunning and you should be very proud.   I'll throw in the high offer of $520!
