However, since I also have to consider IT WOULD have cost $500.00 if I had had to buy it, I guess it is now worth at least $800.00. It does have all tool steel Wilson parts in it, and a nice 4lb trigger, and the barrel bushing and fitted barrel, and now the grips will be on it today or tomorrow.

Just fired up our new "latest and greatest" curing oven. The warning sticker says "keep two feet clearance from sides, back and top" but the anti-tip over bracket is about about 6" long.

If it doesn't burn the building down we'll be able to coat and cure much longer barreled actions than we could yesterday.

You'll LOVE it. Most awesome out of the box 1911 I have ever had. Well as good as any $1500.00~2000.00 gun I have ever seen.

It is a canned stock photo from Hogues Website. They use their Avenger comp top end on their box stock 1911 frames to show off their Avenger to those who don't know what it is. It is actually pictured solely for the grips. I am putting these on my RIA that I tricked out. They are the integral magwell grips. That Avenger thing is a comp conversion they offer for like 1200 that fits all 1911 frames like a .22 conversion but it is available in .38 super, .40, 9mm and .45acp. Unfortunately they no longer picture a regular 1911 with their grips on it for the grip ohotos since they want everyone in the world to notice the Avenger. I might get an avenger in either .45acp or 9mm.
