They are starting to get more popular, so I think there needs to be a nickname for the Rock Island 2011 9mm double stacks that have had the Hayes custom work done on them. My humble submissions: Island Hayes (vague dead head vibe) Heeeeeyyyyssss Hayes Tac Ultra Clearly, I'm not in marketing. That's why I'm asking for help. NOTE: First funny guy to comment something super original like: Paperweight Scrap Metal Junk Gets two (2) internet demerits.
Hey All - new to the forum so I apologize if there is a thread on this already. I recently had a custom 2011 built for me to shoot Open in USPSA. It’s a middy (4.5” barrel), steel grip and chambered in 9mm. Beautiful gun. One thing I am trying to adjust to is having to modify my grip slightly from the plastic 9mm minor guns I have been shooting for the past few years. I always got as high up the slide with my support hand as possible with the plastic guns, but on the 2011 it seems getting high up gets you into trouble with things like extended mag release button, scope mount, thumbrest, etc. Any tips to more easily transition to an open gun friendly grip. Thanks in advance!
I placed an order for a custom 2011 in early June of last year. I received it in early October before Fallen Brethren. When I got it I shot it in the white up until late January because I could not decide on a finish. I finally decided I would get the black Nitride finish done by H&M metal processing. Once I sent it back to my gunsmith for a few touch up before it was finished it was sent to H&M. When they got it they had it ready to be shipped back in about two weeks. I sent it in right before Shot Show. I was very impressed with the turn around time with the trade show. When I got it back in my hands I was very impressed. It is a very smooth finish. It really helps with cleaning it just comes off the gun. H&M did great work with it. Smooth turn around not much of a hassle. I only have one Con with it so far. It doesn't appear very strong. I have had the gun back for a little over a month and the finish is starting to wear off at the front from dry fire and live use. I don't think it should already be worn through at the front. Im curious to see how long it will last before more starts to come off. It was very surprised to see it when I was cleaning my gun the other day. It's not very noticeable but when you take a closer look it's very visible. I will post a picture of it when I get home today.
