Hey all, been a while since I've posted here, life's been busy and all that, but anyway, just recently finished another 10MM to add to the stable, 'dual use' this one by fitting up two barrels, primary one in 10MM Auto, secondary one in .40 S&W.

STI forged frame, Caspian Slide, both barrels are STI bull with Wilson ramp, Ed Brown and EGW internals, Koenig hammer and all sprung up with Wolff springs, Grips from 1911grips.com.

First of all, Welcome Back !

 

The pistol sounds great.

Was there a lot of hand fitting involved ?

 

I hope you can figure out how to post pictures 

since being held hostage by Photobucket.

 

We love pics.

 

Some of the guys really good at posting pics should be along to help 

you get the pics rocking! There should be a "sticky" posted telling you how to do it.

 

Looking forward to a range report too.

 

Congratulations !

 

John

I am computer illiterate.

Are you using photobucket?

PB is blocking you from posting your hosted pics to another site unless you pay them 400 bucks or something.

Wait till the sleepy heads get out of bed and they will be able to help you.

Cheers, pics should be there now.

I'm pretty proud of this build, hand fitted every part myself, only thing I outsourced was to get the frame and slide Blued, I managed to get 8 Metalform 10mm mags and made the base plate extensions out of some 1/2" x 1/2" brass bar.

Sweet looking 1911, you did a great job sir.
I have never seen a trigger like that, very unique. It looks like it is a "long" trigger or is the frame just cut deep? I don't have long fingers so I use medium/short trigger, with a long trigger I have to reach to get my finger in place.
Also for the front strap, is that a Wilson grip enhancer?

Some people are like Slinkys. Pretty much useless but still make you smile when you push them down the stairs.

There is no right way to do something wrong.

Everyone brings joy to your life. Some when they come into it, others when they leave.

Thanks.

The trigger is/was an EGW long blank with their 'tank tread' pattern on the front of the shoe, I like the longer trigger as it fits my gangly long fingers but I didn't like the amount of blank area so I milled the slot through it to break it up a bit.

The front strap simply has some skate board grip tape stuck around it, I milled a recess under the front of the grip panels to secure the edges of the tape so it keeps it all tidy.

I forgot to ask about the hammer, is that a Fusion speed split?
The Wolf springs, did you go with the "flat" springs? When my CDP springs needed replaced I went with their flat springs. I can tell the difference between the standard round and the flat. Maybe because of it being a 3" but it seemed to be smoother shooting.

Hiya, Hammer is from Dawson Precision I think it was originally designed by Doug Koenig, I didn't choose it for any other reason than I liked the look of it, something different, personally I believe the appeal of any firearm has a certain amount to do with aesthetics as well as function.

The springs are Wolff springs are just their std round wire type, #23 recoil, #25 main, ejection is @4 o'clock and around 15'
