I really wish I could take better pictures of this thing.

Nice! I dig the solid trigger look.
Is that 25 or 30 lpi on the front strap?


I've got a similar project planned. Ballpark cost is $1800 :eek :bangin

Thanks everyone! Pretty excited about this one. I had to sell my Brown to fund this project and I'm glad I did.

Caspians work:
Serrate flat top
30 LPI front strap
Fit frame/slide (90%)

My work:
fit trigger, beavertail safety, thumb safety, trigger, barrel/bushing, sights..

No special tools really, just some good quality files and some time.

That is very nice, looks a lot like the 1911's that Rock River Arms produced before they went all AR.

Is that Caspian frame forged or cast?. Care to share the co$t of the slide and frame as it came from them with the machine work?

Caspian investment CAST frame. Frame and slide with options ($875)

I've been shooting her before bluing and she's dead on. A couple feeding problems at first, but that was before I polished the ramp, she ran perfect after i did. I was even thinking of not putting on the finish for the "utilitarian" look.
