Project 1911: Update
Its been a while since I gave an update on my 1911 build. Since last I wrote on this I've changed my plans a great deal.
I decided to build the first weapon with as little cash as possible. What I learned was, I can build a 1911 for 369.00 bucks. It has a high quality frame... with fine checkering... but the rest is pure mil spec.
My parts have finally all arrived... so cleaning an initial assembly will take place tonight. I'll provide pics later and I'll shoot it for the first time tomarrow. You can expect some shooting impressions some time in the afternoon. I've been very impressed with the parts so far. The majority came in a mil spec parts kit on Ebay.
