My First 1911 Build (Gun Porn)

Just thought I would show off my first 1911 Build:





And the holster I just made for it (sorry for the sideways pic. I am still figuring out how to edit pics in Photobucket's App):



Parts List:

Slide Parts:
-Blackthorne Stainless Slide
-Storm Lake Semi-Drop in Match Barrel, Bushing & Barrel Link
-Fusion Firearms Machined Stainless Firing Pin Stop
-Wilson Combat Bulletproof Firing Pin
-TruGLO Brite Site Kimber Front
-STI Bomar-Style Rear Sight

Frame Parts:
-Remsport Match Frame
-SVI Trigger w Flat Short Pad
-Cylinder and Slide Tactical Match Hammer, Sear, & Disconnector
-Ed Brown Stainless Extended Magazine Release
-Ed Brown Hardcore Stainless Slide Stop
-STI Stainless Ambi Extended Thumb Safety
-Larry Davidson Grenade/Punisher Monkey Grips
-Generic Stainless Grip Bushings and Screws
-Fusion Firearms Extended Ejector
-Fusion Firearms Stainless Mainspring Housing
-Fusion Firearms Beavertail Grip Safety (soon to be replaced with a Les Baer)
-Wilson Combat Bulletproof Extractor
- Wilson Combat 2-piece FLGR and Plug
-Wilson Combat Factory Plus Stainless Hammer Strut
-Wilson Combat Magazine Release Lock
-Wilson Combat Factory Plus Stainless Plunger Tube
-Cylinder & Slide Light Pull Sear Spring
-Wilson Combat Spring Set (Heavy duty recoil spring 18-1/2 lb. Extra power firing pin return spring. Plunger spring. Magazine catch spring. Mainspring)
-Wilson Combat Stainless Pin Set (Sear Pin, Ejector Pin, Hammer Pin, Hammer Strut Pin, Mainspring Cap Pin, Mainspring Housing Pin Retainer, Plunger Pin, Safety Lock Plunger Pin, Mainspring Cap and Mainspring Housing Pin.)

I hand polished all the stainless parts with Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish, and did the fitting with 220 and 320 grit stones (occassionally resorting to my grinder, when the stones became too tedious.)

The trigger pulls at roughly 4 pounds.

Probably adds up to around a grand in parts.

Overall I am very happy with the way it turned out.

Very nice. I've been thinking that my next leisure time project should be building my first 1911. Your post gives me motivation to get on with it.

I finally found someone with that slide..

Can you tell me what sights can be used front and back on that slide? The rear cut looks like a true Bomar adjustable but I have no idea.. some used the lpa bomar style. and the front I haven't a clue. Also is it truly a series 70? quality etc? I was about to get one and thought i would ask around first.
I know this is an old thread that i'm reviving but any help would be greatly appreciated!
