This is not a home build but it is a build up that I thought you might like to see. I've been building 1911 type handguns for many years.
I built a custom 1911 45 for a 89 year old friend "Burt" who was a flight engineer and gunner on a WWII bomber. I used caspian/wilson/brown parts all hand fitted, hand checkered and blued at home. I did all the engraving with a cnc mini mill and bought the box. Turned out good, if I say so myself. Burt was speechless. God bless our soldiers, both past, present and future!!!
After building 1911's, building AK's is tremendous fun. To data, I haven't got my first blister yet from a checkering file with an AK!!!!
