1911 Masterpiece



Log in to see fewer ads
This is the follow on to my earlier post "1911 Complete Frame", thanks for everyone's inputs to that thread. But the gun is now done so I figured it needed its own thread...here is my new masterpiece:

- Early 2002-2003 S&W stainless steal complete frame (bought from "pilgrimwoman", thanks!))
- Nelson Conversion - Threaded Barrel / Scope Rail (bought from "pilgrimwoman", thanks!)
- Cool Hand 1911 Full Size G10 Grips
- Burris FFIII

Took it to the range today, shoots amazing. Will probably do a little trigger refinement in the future, but very pleased so far. Very accurate, same hole at 10yds off a rest. Way more accurate than I am free hand, but if I focused and took my time I could get five rounds in about a quarter sized group.

Highly recommend the Nelson, talked to Larry on the phone couple of times for info and he was very helpful even though I did not purchase the conversion unit directly from him. Thanks Larry, you rock!!!

Nice! I'm thinking about the conversion for my 1911 loaded.

Did you run golden bullets through it without issue?

Also did you have to change anything with the trigger to prevent light strikes?

I have a CZ kadet that will only run flawlessly when I change the main spring.

While talking to Larry Nelson, he told me the conversion unit was set up to run SV ammo so that is what I used. Ran 150 rounds of CCI SV through it with only 1 failure to eject at about round 90. No idea what happened and no other issues, ran great! No changes to the trigger...yet, and no light strikes. It is a good stock trigger, just a hair of take up and then a clean break.

Nice looking pistol! You should be able to get bullseye accuracy out of the conversion.

No, not a vendor. She is a member here on the forum. During my last thread when I was asking for opinions on this build, she chimed in and said she had some stuff for sale. We took it off the forum and worked a deal for the unfired S&W lower and the unfired Nelson upper. She was great to deal with...and by the way she still has another Nelson upper and a Springfield aluminum lower she is looking to sell off. She stated they are both unfired and in like new condition. I believe her since both the ones I got from her had never been fired that I could tell and were in like new condition.

If anyone is interested send me a PM and I will get you her number.

Yeah, nice pistol. I love the Nelson Conversion units. I have one on a Smith frame also.

Thanks, your looks great as well. Is that the barrel weight, or compensator? I have the aluminum barrel weight, but am thinking of getting the aluminum compensator.

Just the weight. I like it a lot. It shoots so flat, that I can't see a reason for the comp, for myself. This combo is just crazy accurate. The Smith frame has a 3 # , 5 oz trigger.

Speaking of Trigger pull weight, I cannot believe how light mine is. I used my Lyman electric trigger scale and am coming up with an average weight after 5 pulls of 1 lbs 10 oz. The trigger is completely stock, I have done nothing to it. It feels great, short take up, clean crisp break, and short reset. I have no intention of making an alterations to it, plan to just leave it as is.

Also, my weight is the steel weight. I missed that you said that you have the aluminum weight. Since you have that one, a comp might make a difference for you. But my steel weight does a great job of mitigating recoil.
