Magwell finally went on my (dirty) 1911.  Next up, new ignition kit.

Recently, a couple of pieces of old gear was offered for sale on a local forum. So, now I'm the proud owner of some Ernie Hill "Fast Track" leather that I used to drool over in magazine photos 30 years ago, or so.

My phone camera doesn't really do justice to the color.

 

Photo also includes my old Bianchi 50P "Chapman" Plus holster

I must have bought the Bianchi in mid-90s. I didn't compete much in those days but it did go to a few IPSC-style matches back then.

 

I've been shooting the .45 in the IPSC Classic division, and figured it is a sort of Retro thing. The Bianchi is a bit tight fit for that gun, so I have another leather holster for it: a recent model by a German company.

What is going on in the magwell area? 2 magwells? 

 

Yep - gun was originally built with a heinie integrated magwell. After the gun was built I repurposed it for USPSA and added a Dawson ICE magwell

Not sure when exactly they were produced. I have another Ernie Hill FasTrack, bought new in mid '90s - for a G19 of all things... :D I'm pretty sure I got the Bianchi in the '90s too. Don't recall where I got them. Mail order almost certainly.

Was using my STI Spartan in .45 ACP until I got this a few years ago.

Finished this build during the beerflu - managed to get in a test fire session with it before quarantine but haven't shot it in a match yet. It's a total mutt but shoots really well.

- RIA Tact II frame (Para ramp cut)

- Para "Black Ops" slide, match barrel, and LPA sights

- Brazos Ignition Kit

- Wilson safeties

- Mix of Fusion and Klonimus small parts

- Klonimus grips and magwell

 

The trigger was breaking at sub-2.5 lbs when I first put it together. That was a little light for me so I swapped the Brazos sear spring for a Wolff and re-bent it a little; it's now just north of 3 lbs and feels a lot better.

Maybe, at some point. I do want to focus on a non-revo division some of the time; not sure if it's going to be SS or something else. Weirdly, I can shoot my PX4 Storms better than almost any other gun I own...
