Hey mitrod3, you must post pics when your project is done. I'm interested to see how well a Kart Barrel shoots in the SW1911.:rock:mitrod3 said:my second (for now five 1911's) was a S&W basic stainless with fixed sights. great gun and one fine shooter. i have been fortunate to have had the luck to get 5 fine 1911's thus far. very pleased with the S&W and would buy another without hesitation. i recently decided to upgrade my S&W and the smith doing the work indicated it was a excellant platform for what i was planning......Kart barrel, custom bushing, ambi safety (i shoot for defensive interests) and magwell.
you won't go wrong with an S&W.
be safe, shoot well. :rock:
