Here are some of the stats I can remember off the top of my head. everything on here was hand fit. .45 ACP. officer size Caspian frame, ser # NV 1776 integrated plunger tube Caspian commander size slide, flat top with lines cut, novaks extreme duty adjustable tritium sights. Wilson bullet proof extractor, and firing pin. oversize ed brown f/p stop. this is a 70's series gun. trigger is an STI 1911 trigger blank, cylinder and slide tactical sear/hammer/disconnect ed brown titanium hammer strut. Ed brown barrel and bushing. Wilson checkered MSH. I think the safety is a sti, I tried a couple before I settled on this one. Ed Brown Memory Groove grip safety. full length length guide rod. standard hogue grips. I just like the way they feel topped of with a Roguard exterior finish, and NP3 plus internals. it is currently resting in its milt sparks vm2. this is my dream gun, no expense spared!!!! it shoots dead on nuts, just a little more kick than I expected glad I didn't go with the titanium frame. 6 months and 2k later

If you had it to do over again, would you consider using a full-sized slide-barrel on the Officer sized frame to down-grade the perceived or felt flip?
One of the problems with CC is what sticks out of the top of the the waistband. Sometime when you get one in stock, see what happens with that configuration and get back to me. I like my Glocks, (they always work, till you're out of ammo of course) but I've always had a love-affair with my 1911. Sooner or later I'm going to have to go back to it, and I'd like to do some of the hand-fit refinements that you've done here.
I never thought about doing that. Although the muzzle flip is higher on this gun than the government size it is very controllable, and much less than I feel even on my .40 glock. I shot a squirl with this thing the other day, either winged him or got close enough to knock him over before he limped away at about 75 feet. to say that I was impressed that I even got close is an understatement. I have a hard time seeing them at that distance, needles to say shooting one. the problem with longer barrels is they poke into my wallet, which I also carry on the right and the two together pinch my side when I sit. I think this is a perfect size, for me to carry. next time you come down, wear it around for the day see if you like it. Maybe Ill build you one with a custom serial number also psalm 23:4 or something
