While I am awaiting Springfield's Custom Shop to make the custom 1911 I ordered - who here has custom or semi-custom 1911s? Show me some pics to pass the time (I have to wait until June)

well my Gold Cup is not from the custom shop but it has traveled around to a few pistolsmiths. Just about every internal part has been replaced.

Last year when Gander Mountain got ahold of some Sistema's, I ended up with two. I left one stock and had a local guy here go nuts on the other. I can't remember off hand the name of the internal parts he used, but it was one of the well known custom parts sets. He put a amby safety on it and mag well bevel. I need to make a decision on a coating for it.

1911 custom carrys

I've been carrying a Bob Chow 45 for almost 30 yrs and havent had occasion to cuss it yet, couple folks have had that urge though. Its brother in the belt is a 45 Gold Cup that I cut up long before the little Colts appeared, the Airforce called them the LeMay models, 4'' bbl and the butt cut to almost exactly what the Officers model would turn out to be. I had some issues with the springing over the years , until I discovered the gluck 9mm flat wire springs from ISMI, a little tweek and viola, no more binding from stacking coils in the 4''.

then there's the Remington M51, been in lust with this one since my grandad let me shoot his. Such a friendly little thing in the hand. I gotta learn how to use a camera and send some pics

Lotsa new and improved stuff out there, but if it aint broke.......

Here are a couple that I put together a few years ago. One beater model, which shoots to nice to beat, and one that I tried to make really pretty.

The beater is a .45, the 2-tone is a 9x23mm Winchester.
