Well, I finally took a knife to my SW1911PD and bobtailed it. Overall I'm pretty happy with it. Got a custom set of wood grips on order for it. This was my first attempt at something like this and I admitt I was scared at first but once I got started it wasn't that bad. I just lined up the Ed Brown mainspring housing, marked the frame, cut with dremel, used a drill press for the holes and finished with a fine file.
