    Forgive my photo skills. Oleg is taking some pics of this in the morning.

    Also, I’ll be providing wizardpc more photos in the future documenting the process this 1911 will go through during it’s customization process at Kandros Custom, which I hope to see a link to his website floating around here shortly (wizardpc, if it is acceptable, would you please?) Chad (Kandros) and I have already mapped out a great deal of the work we will be doing (yes, I’m helping/learning) and there will be quite a lot of time and energy in this one.

    I may be letting the cat out of the bag here, but I’ll take a chance. Through some informal discussion with Chad, we both agree that the “Full Rail/Dustcover” 1911 is a highly sought after frame, especially since Springfield Armory discontinued it. Chad is considering offering this type of frame when he gets “tooled up”. Not in the near future, I don’t think, but after some legal research and making a determination regarding the cost effectiveness of such a venture. That said, if I have any input, there will be many options that are not “commonly” available because I believe Chad has the ability and the energy. I can’t say enough good things about him or his work.

    wizardpc,

    Thanks for posting pics of my toy. There are more to follow as we have discussed. I’ll get some better shots of this and others from Oleg to you as soon as I can.

    Thanks again, and I hope everyone enjoys the pics!!!

    Tac
