This started life as a blued Colt Series 80 Government Model 1911.

We then shortened to 4.5" and threw the entire custom book at it.

Nice Bobtail.

I like Ned Christiansen's work with "Conamyds"

In my eyes you can't beat a classic single stack.

Damned fine time to stumble across this thread. The wife has decided to quit just talking about it and signed up for the CCW class. So, we've been shopping this weekend for a nice 9mm for her to carry. Her favorite by and far was an STI. I've never heard of them, and the guy at the counter was gushing about them to the point of sounding like a shill. I liked the way it felt as well, but we will go back and put some rounds through it and a couple others before making a final decision. Any input?
As a side note, I've decided that my belief that guns are to bought and never sold is a flawed idea. I've got too many guns taking up space in the gun safe that will most likely never be shot. The idea of keeping 15 different types of ammo doesn't make much sense either, so I want to cut it down to a couple of different calibers and shotguns. Most are plain jane, ho hum average guns, so I don't know what's going to be the best way to get rid of them. Trade them in at the dealer? private party sales? Gun show? Heck, I inherited most of them and don't even know what some of the older ones are.

Some of the 'smiths out there do some amazing work.

I like the beveled and flushed slide stop.


Stan Chen flattens and bevels alot of his.

Yeah, there are a lot of guys doing that sort of thing. This one started life as a Springfield "Mil-Spec." It was then taken down to 1" width and had a few pages of custom wizardry thrown at it. 20lpi checkering on the front strap and MSH, custom in-house grips then finished with the melonite QPQ treatment.

I had one in my hands and unfortunately let it get away...


I was impressed with it, very well built.
