    1911 Receiver Casting Project

    This is the Story,
    I'm currentlly working on a 1933 Colt 1911A1 restoration project and had to mill the slide due to holster ware, pitting and worn markings.

    Before I set the slide up in the mill I tryed a test run on this Casting First to make sure not to make any mistakes.
    It went smoth.















    I'm not a Gun Smith and don't think I'm going to complet this lower. I've had it as a paper weight on my desk for a year or so and its just going to be a test dummy for a bluing project after this point. After I get the bluing done, well I guess my Question is,...............................Dose anyone want a paper weight or Project?

    I love projects, making guns from parts, reworking bubba victims, etc.

    Thanks Again Rhmc24,
    Sounds like you have been around. You think it would be hard to drill all necessary hole's with a gig?
