just got around to picking up the SARCO supplied 1911A1 frame today.
i assembled the pistol for trial fit with all the parts for the build and checked it for function.
so far it looks very good. the RIA frame and the ww2 slide fit look made for each other. most all parts look to be fine with no extra fitting except for the extended grip safety. no overhanging anything on the frame to slide fit , tight enough but loose enough to function.
trigger pull is very nice with the S&W hammer, dissconnector and charles daly sear --about 4.5lbs with very little creep--nearly as good as my tuned up 1911--and this thing is DRY of oil--LOL
all function test passed with flying colors--
it ain't bad looking, sort of a black & OD green park finish --not as good looking as a caspain or foster though. got a few tiny scrapes from shipping --nothing major.
once i stake the plunger tube and pin the ejector and find that grip bushing that wasn't in the package--it seems midway sent a pack of THREE instead of four!--LOL!
i'll be ready to test fire it!
not a bad deal for a frame really and EVERYTHING fit , if i went with a GI style grip safety it would be as near "100% no fit-drop in" as possible.
i might do a polish on the feed ramp --
so far it looks promising--i'll update when she is finished up and test fired. i am hoping it'll shoot as good as it assembled----
