1911 Government Model

100th Anniversary Limited Edition

Hi to all,

 Just a note to let all of you who are patiently waiting on your 1911 Anniversary pistol that we are steadily turning them out.  When we receive the 4 pistols that are currently at Turnbull’s being blued we will have delivered 30 pistols. 

 I have just received samples of my pocket model frames with a couple of modifications that I wanted made and they look great.  I have ordered 50 for our next run of Pocket Models.

I hope to get started making a couple of sample 1910 pistols so that I can have sample parts to be drawn up on CAD and then set up to be CNC machined.  I want to personally build the samples as I did with the Pocket Model.  This will be a long range project for late 2013 or early 2014.  I have to finish up the Anniversary pistols first, then the 50 Pocket Models, and then start on the 1910.  It is always exciting to have fun projects to work on.

 Hope you have all had a great summer.  It has been so hot and dry here that I am looking forward to fall.  The dry land farmers will have a bad year here.  Their crops are toast.
