Just wanted to say hello... I am about to start work (Thanks to Alan) on a new project. A Lone Star edition 1911 clone, I will be using mostly parts from Fusion Arms, but the grips will be custom made for me by a disabled Vet in Alabama. This thing is going to be sick... if I get it completed. That is one project, the other is going to be an experiment with some coatings if I can find a suitable test subject, it will then be finished out with either Fusion parts or take offs from my Kimber, again THANKS to Alan... I will post a link to the the guy that is making my grips and will post actual pics of mine once I get them in this week.
