Here's pics of my first 1911, (5th pistol) Gold Cup Trophy with cocobolos, ext wilson safety, wilson drop-in beavertail, and wilson add-on frontstrap (not sure about the looks of this piece). Hopefully the links work this time.;) p.s. Thanks to all who gave advice on the fitment of the beavertail!

Very nice GC! You mentioned you didn't like the add on frontstrap. Have you thought of maybe bead blasting the front strap? I wonder if that would help blend it in with the frame better? Just a thought.

BTW, here's a pic for those who couldn't see it.

Brian, I intend to be able to return her to original condition, so I won't do any major cosmetic changes. The Wilson frontstrap definately helps the grip, but it looks kinda like a piece of aluminum foil wrapped around the frame! But I can always take it off if I want. Great gun for $765--good to have a buddy with his FFL!:D
