1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

The pistol looks nice but why the hack does WE always this stupid "it just might look like the thing a bit somehow" policy? This doesn't look even close to a real neXt pistol. WA did the job well. But for a classic freestyle 1911 pretty nifty look. So never mind your choice. And grips are sweet, as the Novak marking on the slide. A hint of authenticity. :D

These are the first pics of the 2-tone novak I've seen.

 

Despite the design "flaws" mentioned above I like the looks of the gun.

I wanted to buy it myself but the fact that it is a WE is keeping me from buying it.

Quoting pictures that have already been posted is unnecessary.

This is a TM 1911a1 frame mated to a TM 5.1 customized slide, with Nova furniture and my own handmade grips in Black Walnut.

 

The Ed Brown Sheriff 'Jim Wilson' 1911 special is on the back burner due to lack of parts....damn :(

What do you mean by customized? i thought you oculd just use the slide with a new bushing, and the Tanio Koba slide spacer.

True you can but you still have to notch out for the bushing also i filled and sanded the original markings then cut additional cocking serrations and had the slide engraved with the 'Caspian' logo....depends what you consider customized i suppose :huh:

Thanks, as you can tell I do love the 1911 :rolleyes:

 

Clockwork_O said: 'damn nice work only pity the slide is plastic'.

 

Yes its plastic but that's all I can afford, so I have to 'make do and mend' wherever I can. ;)

 

Thanks guys for all your comments its very much appreciated :D

Just to get a Detonics safety and maybe a new hop rubber, already got a new tightbore in it. Not bad for a primary weapon. May even get a rail for it.

Thats a beauty FK!

 

Merely a well shot pic of my standard TM 1911A1 with the custom grips renegadecow made for us.

 

And yup it's my primary. Not to add a stock MEU outer barrel, a Detonics safety and maybe a flat mainspring housing. Finally a new hop rubber for the win.

Thanks 'SamJacksonFan' :D

 

I would have got the slide engraved with the correct 'Jim Wilson' signature but my local engravers CNC software couldn't handle it...damn :(
