"Project Alice" and "Lima"


Recommended Posts

I won't List Project Alice''s specs because she is going to be continually evolving for awhile. But "Lima" i will list.

 

I'm starting to love this build and can't wait to do #2 and #3. I have a pile of Tanfoglio stuff and would like to do what for me; (hard pause) would be a super build using all the sexy new products coming out from Patriot Defense. I know for a fact we are gonna keep seeing new products role out! I'm excited I think it would be ideal to one day offer a Tanfoglio open build kit like carver custom does for glocks. Let's keep Tanfoglio and Patriot Defense on top!

Here's the latest and best so far check it out! This thing is gonna eat!

This build parts list:

GT heavy frame

Limited slide

J&L custom barrel

3 Port EGD comp

Cone fit G.R.

EGD Magwel

EGD Brass Pro Grips

Xtreme Semi Curve Trigger. Other trigger returns feel mushy to me

 Única Hammer

EGW Sear Fit

Factory H. S.

PD heavy FP

PD FPS

New Safety's

Xtreme Sear cage

Shooters Connection Slide racker.

IPSC Alex Mount

 IPSC Alex Thumb rest.

C-More RTS2 V5 6 MOA

 

Work done: by me.

EGW sear fit for reset and break

PD Bolo

Fit Frame and slide fit/lapped true fit.had to actually tap slide back and forth with lapping compound until it moved freely.(feels like ball bearings) this process I won't explain. To risky for the faint of heart.

Rails polished and edge broke.

I tighten sear cage to frame fit for a more precise trigger. I actually have to Tap cage into frame with rubber mallet now.

Trigger guard dehorned

Slide stop shaped to fit behind thumb rest.

Custom made precision sear pin.

I change the henning trigger. Drill, tap, bend, and relocate over travel screw.

Trigger sub 2lbs tuned

3rd hole added to Thumb rest to allow further adjustment.

Racker fit.

Stroked out to 2.4600

All the edges blended inside for smoothness and feeding.

Barrel recut and recrowned by me.(ordered long)

Slide face lapped to fit and time comp.

4th Hole added to comp

Upper top slide polished and blended sight blank(no ugly hole) New safety fit to EGW sear very tight.

Magwel polish and blend.

FP hole polish

All friction points polish Barrel fit twice lol.

 

Debating on having Joe Wilson do me a small window cut and two or three popple holes. This build definitely isn't done. May experiment with shock buffs. I'm sure I'm forgetting more.

I'm am clearly not the photographer JoAnna Wilson or Stuart Wong are.

Those look fantastic and the work done is amazing. Have you tried the new PD aggressive grips? I have a set and love these.

 

Tell us more about the custom barrel.

Tell us more about the custom barrel.

Custom barrel, as in length, full fit, and ream. Ordered, threaded, reamed, and cut by J&L but then I had to fit it to gun Twice due to tightening and I ordered it too long. The barrel "peanut" is even fit tighter in this gun. I am Partnering with Patriot Defense beginning this year and am here to help answer questions too. I am hopeing to be trying a brass set of the new PD aggressive grips in thin mag well version.

Alice is going to slay Lima....... just saying lol.

 Hands down the best tanfo builder out there. I've run apolos guns before and will be running one for the upcoming season. It pays to have kick ass friends that are super talented. 

 Keep killing it brother. Look forward to ripping it together agen this year.
