1911 Government Model

Hi to All!  

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year.  

We have the first 4 pistols back from TurnBull, the 2nd 4 have been shipped out to them, and the 3rd 4 will go out just after New Years.  We won’t ship anything during the Christmas Rush for fear of losing them.  

We have one more hold up on the final assemble of the 1st 4 pistols.  We polished and fire blued the parts to finish them up, and lo and behold, the hammers had minute wavy white streaks on the sides.  Seems as though the batch of A2 steel that they were made from had some form of anomaly in it.  The heat treatment was ok but I won’t accept any type of cosmetic flaw such as this.  We have new hammers being cut from some 4140 which should do the trick.  

My apologies for yet another delay.

 

Sincerely,

Bill
