1911's and custom work

Here is my first 1911 I ever worked on. I did a Beavertail and trigger job. I also opened the ejection port some as well as polish the feed ramp and all the other little stuff. I parkerized it at a freinds house and love the finish. It's kind of a greenish/black in person.
It is a Sistema (colt) from Argentina. It's my understanding that Colt sold them the tooling and went there and trained them in its use.
I paid 199.00 for it and shot it for along time befor i ever toutched it.

I just don't understand why you would want to start from a 40% casting...?

Just because you can. It's a fun project. Fairly easy. Because you can, Why not ?


Here's the story on the systema,
I bought it thru a freind with an FFL. I've had it for about 8yrs or so and i don't belive you can get them at that price anymore. Seems to me it was in Shotgun News or something on that order, CDNN maybe ?
They were supposed to be rebuilt and i can tell you that I saw at least a dozen of them and all were in good shape.
