    Sweet pistol, my apprentice. The two-tone looks outstanding in that traditional Jeff Cooper way. Just curious why you went with a long trigger, since your fingers are as stubby as mine?

    Really nice looking. I have a lot of friends that don't care a lot for the two tone 1911 but I have always thought that they were pretty damn cool. If it shoots as well as she looks ya got a really nice one there

    Oooooh, a "Contemporary 1911"...

    Sweet.

    I love the clean look. If Chip Foose built a 1911....?

    well I shot it.

    It shot well. The flat bobtail mainspring is so comfortable in my hand. The new sights are easy to pick up, and the trigger is OUTSTANDING. Sights were dead on out of the box.

    I went with the longer trigger to save a couple of dollars. The Gunsmith had one on hand for 1/2 the cost. With the thin grips (Temporary panels, I have some coming from Esmeralda) relief cut and high grip safety, reach is good.
    Other changes include, an 18 pound recoil spring, new spring kit, beveled mag well, throat and polish, lowered ejection port, dehorn all edges, dovetail front sight.
    I wanted to improve the beauty, but not at the expense of function. I tried to stay practical on the alterations.
