I think that I have done about everything that can be done by hand in building .45s for myself only. O/S barrels, slides, frames, safeties..... most everything. There are not many things that I would nornally do but hammer on a 1911.
Long barrel, 5", .460R, combat. I can't wait to start the next projects. I wish that I could build some in the 4 1/2 - 3" size, but the small size makes them really hard to balance.
