Custom Aluminum Frame Fixture for Working on the Venerable Colt 1911

Mar 25, 2013   //   by Bob Warfield   //   Blog, CNC Projects, Cool  //  No Comments

I came across this article on the 1911 Forum and it scratches two itches:

–  I’m a major 1911 fan–it’s my favorite handgun to shoot.

–  It’s always a treat to see a machinist go crazy and do something custom that mere mortals don’t have access to.  Fellow machinists: that’s one reason we like to be machinists, is it not?

For the full article, go to the link above.  Meanwhile, here’s a few “teaser” photos:

I’ve done a little trigger work on my 1911, but I’d love to build a full custom pistol some time, with all the CNC’d trimmings.
