Unintended Hiatus

It appears that I have not posted in the last 3 weeks or so. Unfortunately, our dog took a turn for the worse and ended up having to be put down. Add that up with work bullshit and training a new puppy, and I got a little bogged down.

Additionally, I haven't read any blogs for 3 weeks, so forgive me for not being up to speed on most things.

Below are pictures of the initial Rock Island frame purchase. We've begun to buy parts to assemble and looking into the do's and do-not's of assembly. As this project is officially underway, I will be posting pictures of the step by step procedures as we get to them. Brownell's is also making this thing a lot easier by offering their 1911 Armorer's Toolchest. It was a little pricey, coming in at over 50$ the cost of the frame and slide, but appears to be worth it, not just for building but month to month maintenance.

For shits and grins I Googled "1911 build" this afternoon. It pulled up a mere 4 pages and half the entries seemed to have something to do with the Panama Canal. Included, though, was a thoughtful thread from The AR15 Armory and a killer post from our own Xavier.

It's starting to look like a lot of fitting and small pain in the ass type stuff, but that should make it even sweeter in the end.

Sorry to hear about your dog. That's always a hard thing to do. Don't blame you for not blogging, although you were missed.
