Just picked this one up from Precisoin Gunworks today. It is a Springfield 1911 A1 with the following modifications:

Polished Feed Ramp,Barrel-Throat,Slide to Frame,Deburred Firing Pin
Novak LMC04 Lo-Mount Tritium sight, rear
Heine Cross Dovetail Tritium #311, front (dovetail added)
Clark #170 Match Barrel Bushing
Carry Trigger Job (4 lbs)
Ed Brown #893 S/S Wide Ambi Thumb Safety
Wilson #92B Mainspring Housing
Hogue Diamond Checkered Grips, Cocabolo
Wolf 16# Variable Rate Recoil Spring
Stiff Firing Pin Spring
De Horned for Carry
Reshaped Front Strap to Colt Radius
Checkered Front Strap (30 LPI)
Refinished Entire Firearm in Black - T

It is my first true custom. I think John Harrison did a superb job with it. He is a super nice fellow and easy to deal with.

After seeing the finished Springfield today, I couldn't resist handing over my Kimber Classic for him to make into an Ed Brown Custom Classic look alike. His Email is:

Hey Ricky-
You are "Da Man" :grin: :grin:
I was truly out of line in not giving credit, where due.
You are truly an exemplary Connoisseur of custom 1911's.

There, is that enough "sucking up" ?? :grin: :grin:

EEEEWW, yuck. Don't overdo it John. Now go back to drilling rocks.

I can see it now - I take delivery of the gun, go to show it to the guys on Tuesday night, and Ricky says, "It's all screwed up! You should have talked to me first!"

:grin: :grin:

Ricky, we need to talk. I want to make sure I've got it right before John puts file to steel. :grin:
You're killing me.:grin: I probably won't get to see your new rosco since you're leaving us for the snow bunnies.
