Once again featuring Pete's perfect 25 LPI checkering.

This is my version of a Rodger's fighting gun. I wanted to try and emulate how Bob builds his guns, while still being a Reid gun.

For those of you who don't know, Bob is an old fly fishing guide. I grew up bass fishing on the creek. So I thought the dry flies and lures helped mirror this build pretty well.













The picture was on the camera, so I figured I would add a gratuitous picture of the cotton fields around my house :)

I generally don't spend much time looking at 1911s made by people I never heard of. I am certainly going to re-think that.

Sir, your work is outstanding.

Jeremy, Bob has to feel a certain sense of pride with every new gun of yours, but this one's just flat gorgeous.

The grip safety fit is outstanding, and there's no question that you've nailed the Rodgers hard use dehorn some time ago.

Great work…again!

Fine work there, Sir. Interesting what you've done to the barrel hood. Is that done purely aesthetically or does it serve a purpose? Quite unique!

Some dumbarse once said that about Rogers, Rodgers, and Harrison's early endeavors as well. :)

I always do like to see a pic of hammer back, safety on. Though I can't imagine with that great attention to detail, that any of the hole in the frame would show.

It's OK but I think you could have fit the grip safety a little better :)

Another one I wish was mine. Nice Jeremy, nice.
But how does it shoot? No targets?
