  • OT: So my other OCD hobby, gunsmithing... (Epic 1911 .45 build pix)

    I think I started another thread a while back showing the various things I've been doing to this pistol...



    Picked it up from Jesse (Ceriakote guy) today. Gotta decide what I want to do for sights.



    I'm really happy with the color (Graphite Black) This is going to be a carry gun and it'll get banged around so I wanted a nice long wearing finish that looked great and the Ceriakote should fit the bill nicely. The company who developed Ceriakote is local and the guy who coated this used to be their head coater when they did jobs in house.



    Here's the crappy cellphone pix... I'll shoot some better ones later with my DSLR































    More in a sec...

    That turned out pretty sweet looking, I like the rounded sides.



    I want one of these to screw around with. Might go for the J-22 just because it's dirt cheap, won't kill my pocket. Not scared to ruin it if a mod goes bad. The others are not much less than a 1911.

    Love these 1911s in this thread. All of them. I have no handgun at the moment and have been planning on a Beretta M9 for awhile. I'd love to own a Springfield or Colt 1911 some day
