Amazing work Lou, really like the recoil spring plug.

I am interested in some pics of the front sight, saw the pic after you finished blending, how did the finished product turn out?

Simple and elegant, with a touch of attitude. One of the most appealing builds I've seen this year. Incredibly well done! :rock:

Like someone else said, that is exactly how (I think) a 1911 should look. It's bad-ass. It looks clean, functional, and devoid of bells and whistles, yet if an admirer knows anything about 1911s, he'll realize that it is full of subtle custom touches that enhance an already timeless design. That gun looks like a true fighting pistol! I'm going to have one built just like it...
