Put bone grips on my wife's 1911. Uses the original retaining clip, and 2 5/8 steel pins.

Beauties. Are they for-reals that you modified?

Very nice.
I like the 1911 platform. I have sort of a muscle memory for the action, so I stick with that function.

Yeah, they are for a real 1911 and I cut out the backside to allow the CO2 clip to fit into it.

Yes, make's the 1911's so pretty with light colored grip, bone white, resine steer or maple wood. Any thing make's it look extra great :wink:

Very nice.

Out of all the pistols I've owned my two favorites were a plain Jane Springfield Armory .45 and a full race Kimber .45

I couldn't miss with either gun. Thousands of hand loads down the pipe, both guns were like an extension of my arm. Even the replica ones I have today, from plain Tanfoglio to Blackwater and Colt's just feel perfect. Sort of hard to explain..pick up, shoot, hit target. I dont consciously think of aiming or sight picture..its like muscle \ brain memory takes over.

Nothing feels as good as a 1911 in the hand. I find most other automatics just feel wrong.

Sweeeeet. I share your love for the 1911 platform. I'm now down to three air gun versions and a GSG .22 version. Looking forwrd to another 1911 PB in 9mm or .45.
