Bespoke Cylinder & Slide 1911


Recommended Posts

This is a dream gun, it’s not the finish or grips I wanted but it’s one of the last 1911’s custom built by Bill Laughridge before retiring 


Can not get over how light she is & she is a dream to shoot, not a fan of the finis as I want a more traditional finish & grips. However, she fits my hands perfectly and the Mrs also likes how it fits her hands

Did not realize she had a Caspian frame/slide, no idea about the barrel 


I’m very tempted to see about having the slide milled for a red dot……

Gun is way more accurate than I am……need to use paint pen on front sight, black on black stinks with my bad eyes 


25 yards from standing ready, no timer just ran thru a magazine & reloaded 


Hate magazines without a extended base plate since my left had is weak with lack of dexterity/coordination it’s a struggle removing magazines & the slide is extremely hard to manipulate do hopefully it loosens up some


Head & X ring aiming points
