Just finished the above with my Final Touches for a much better fit and purchase . It was more work than i thought , but got her done !

I cut in / Inletted the walnut diamond cut grips for a Thumb Rest & then added on a Wilson Combat lower frame front metal checkered grip , as mine was smooth there .. ;) (y)馃嚭馃嚫馃嚭馃嚫

Did you do the checkering on the front strap Gunner?

I believe that's the Wilson Combat part he mentioned. Your 1911 looks great, Gunner! 馃憤馃憤

I've used those front straps, they hold well enough under the grip panels.

Thanks BH

No Sir , I had heard of this add on metal checkered piece from W/C ..From other reviewers this particular piece could've been at least 1/8 " larger in the width on both sides , as it fits under the grips , it is a fairly close fit with just compression . thanks !

Yes, that is the Wilson 'cheese grater'; I have one on my Springfield Armory 1911 as well.
I'll ditto the Cheese grater . Still better than it being smooth IMO (y) (y)

Good job on the facelift Gunner, you will really be happy after you shoot it, it runs like a gun that cost's much more than you have in it. Use it in good health my friend..

Great job on a pistol with a great history. Who would think a typewriter company could make such an excellent sidearm? That came from the time when a large portion of our industrial complex mobilized to make 1911鈥檚. Everybody from railroad signal equipment companies to sewing machine companies jumped in to help.

That鈥檚 a great job on a sweet pistol with a fascinating history.

Thank You Mr. Earl 007 ! I haven doubt about it running well , as you have attested to from it's prior use . If it wasn't for you It would not be sitting here in my house ..

All I did was tweak it a bit more is all . Mr. Rick checked everything out , after replacing the hammer main spring I cooked [ My Bad ] !! I Love It (y)(y)(y)

Thank You Roger very much . Yes I was quite surprised to find out all the different manufacturers that accomplished what they did with these 1911's(y)(y)
