Photo of the day... blued, assembled, and wearing ivory stocks. Seems to me that everyone should have at last one ivory stocked and blued 1911. This particular gun goes to a very patient client who wanted to turn an old large letter Colt into a classically styled custom. I very much appreciate having clients that allow me to do this work and turn out the best product I can. Thank you sir!

Photo of the day... this is a part 2 for yesterday’s photos. Before and after, making sure the breech-face is flat and square in order to achieve full and proper contact with the barrel hood.

Photo of the day...straightening the lines above/around the trigger guard before and after. The guard itself still needs work but a couple of other things have to happen before that.

... and a photo of a recently rebuilt/re-worked project. I originally built this gun in 2010 as a full polished blued gun. The owner, who has a trio from me just like that, wanted to turn one of them into a two-tone so that gave the opportunity to re-work certain aspects of the gun. The results on paper were telling; 5 rounds from standing at 24 yards.
