1911 Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

 

Updated picture of my 1930s machine pistol. It only needs a thread adaptor to correctly mount the compensator and it's finished.

 

How did you fit the wooden hand grip as I might put one on my full auto WA M1911.

Epoxy resin. I wanted to weld a bracket and screw the grip to the bracket but i have no access to welding equipment, or someone to weld for me, and this is a chinese gun made from horrible metal that wouldn't weld properly anyway.

 

I made the bracket anyway and epoxyed it to the frame, carving down the metal of both to get a good fit, then epoxied the grip to the bracket.

 

 

Also of note, in the picture i found of one of these "baby machine guns" that used a genuine thompson front grip, the grip had been shortened (see my picture) to fit slightly better. Other guns had front grips carved from scrach. You could get a lump of wood and cut your own, that way you could make it fit better to the frame of your gun.

I might consider having ProG4 or someone make the T3 Comp set myself, though I won't have an officer frame for TM...

 

Other custom 1911s? God there are so many I can't even begin to pick...

WA has you covered ;)

 

Spotted these amongst their new releases.

Speaking of grips, I am looking for wood grips for my 1911s.

 

My TM just needs plain government style checks, just like the origonal TM, but made from wood.

 

For my bell (baby machine gun, shown above) I'm after smooth wood grips with the colt coin/emblem in it.

 

 

Anyone know where to get simple grips like that? Thanks in advance.

Ed; a saw and some sandpaper. Or if you are as lazy as me; a jigsaw and a pad sander!

 

Yhaht varnish will give you a nice effect on the finished product.

 

 

I've tried that, twice now. I always fall foul of the screw holes. I've no idea how to cut those.

eBay is a good place to start....
