Chuck, Ned, Ted-Et All.......

Not sure if I can help at all....but here is what I can offer up. Best I can do being just a lowly fan of 1911's.

I've got the following that might be made into a nice LTW#3?

New (never fit) Briley 5" 9x23 Non-Ramped barrel
New Briley spherical bushing, reverse plug
Wilson Stainless lower parts kit
and misc other items-

These were going to be used for my Commander 9x23 custom build, but I figure you all can do much better than I ever could?

The 9x23 might be a nice addition to the LTW collection?

Just an thought/offer-

McNabb-- 9X23, I don't see why not. Let's see what happens. I mean, I don't think an LTW gun has to be .45 caliber, and I reckon it probably doesn't even have to be a 1911. Probably in the end it'll depend on a lot of interdependent factors with a couple irrelevlant ones sprinkled in.... :D Your offer is certainly appreciated and on the table.

McNabb,
Very nice offer. As soon as a couple of things happen, as Ned said, we can get something going on #3. Again, we sure appreciate the generosity, believe me.

Sounds good fellas....

Ned, just drop me a line if you want the stuff for #3.

You know me from a few builds we did together, such as the AR-15 with the trapazoid forend.

Ahh, it's you!! I mean that in a good way :D .

I imagine we'll all get together in the mahogany walled, smoke-filled board room and talk about #3..... since I got to play on number two I imagine I might not on number three, but will keep you posted.

Well Fellas,
I'd be happy to 'golfball' a 9x23 frontstrap and mainspring housing tomorrow!
Let's get it underway!
I've got a lightweight 9x23 in the works for a personal 'bunny' gun.

I've seen what the factory WW 9x23 JSP 124gr does to our local dog sized jacks, and it is impressive.

It may not be the ideal 'personal defense round' but it sure is bad medicine for jackrabbit sized game. A case of 1000 rds of WW runs about $220 delivered. It hurts them large jacks almost similar to a .223.

I've got a case of 9x23 on my floor, will be buying another just to stimulate my completion of the project. I want 25oz. when finished.
Anyone got a source for an aluminum , smooth mainspring housing?

Chuck,
Gary Smith has them. I was just chopping on one for a Commander / Officer's CCO that I'm starting a build on. I've also got an original Colt Series '70 9mm Luger Gov't Model in the safe to build a full house gun out of. The customer wants a 9x19 barrel for plinking and a 9x23 barrel for carry fitted to. They make nice two caliber blasters!
Regards,
John

Fellas,

FWIW, I have an Ed Brown smooth flat MSH and strong side wide thumb safety (I know someone here can handle recontouring it), as well as a Greider med and long solid triggers (take your pick) that I can throw in the mix. Both the MSH and thumb safety are blued parts, and they and the trigger are unused/unfit. Lemme know if you can use these, because me with a pile of parts is a bad thing.

I have a Wilson SS Ambi Safety and SS Beavertail I can toss in the mix if they are needed..They'll go well with the Wilson SS lower kit above.... Just let me know. I'll be forced to buy a another gun and start building if I don't use or sell these soon... :roll:

Hi Power? Did I hear Hi Power?
I'd sure like that!

I just picked up a half FN-Browning(bottom half)/half Argentine FM HiPower for cheap, and was wondering what to do with it.
If I lose interest, as I probably will in a couple of weeks, it could become a LTW donor gun. Could be #4 or #5- unless I lose interest faster than you gain a donor 1911.

Rich, I talked to Craig a couple of weeks ago, and he said he was going to be working on some grips for the larger S&W frames next. If you haven't sent me an e-mail, and you do so, I'll be glad to let you know when some come in. Best,

I've got a Caspian Race Ready frame with a mainspring housing that I bought new to build a 6in gun on and never used I'll donate it if someone gets ahold of me. I'm not to far from Ned.

Thanks Harley45, that's mighty nice of you. I remember you from some posts elsewhere.

I don't think the final format for #3 is quite determined yet but looks like we don't have to worry about a shortage of component donors. Great to see everybody getting into the spirit!

Anyone in a position to donate just the basic parts of a GAU out of an A10 Warthog, LTW gunsmiths are standing by!

I have a .38 Super match barrel I can throw into the mix. It was made by Storm Lake, but marked B.A.T.

You might need to have it re-bored if you want to shoot Chuck's 30mm rounds. :wink:

Hmm, Mossyrock, I happen to have a .38 Super in here for repairs, owned by a person I will just refer to as the Caped Crusader. Not repairs actually, it's just that.... the barrel came up missing. Mighty suspicious if you asks me.....

Your Nedliness,

Your customer is obviously an imposter. Unmask him posthaste! EVERYONE knows the Dark Knight ABHORS the use of firearms, ESPECIALLY 1911s, since that is what Joe Chill used to murder Thomas and Martha Wayne!!! :shock:

Man, you were right! I thought the whole thing was suspicious. I yanked his mask off and found the Phantom!
