Show Your Custom Handguns

Recommended Posts

I'm having a 1911 built.  Therefore, I'm back to being moderately interested in handguns again and think there should be a "safe" space for customized pistols to be show off without fear of bullying from any other fanboy club.  

What'cha got?  

Springfield Armory 1911A1

I did the trigger work, beavertail, hammer, stippling on top of the slide.  I also added the magwell and blended it inside reasonably well.  It's a beast.  Shoots very well with my reloads.  I need to mod the mag release as it beats my hand up a touch but beyond that it's just ducky.

I have a Colt 9MM model 70 series converted to 38 Super, and a Les Baer commander in 38 Super also.

This was Pat Rogers’ 1911, set up to his specs for off duty carry. It has had extensive work done to it, but damned if I know exactly what or by whom.

Frame is Colt (Serial number puts it in 1981 I think). 

I have no idea on the slide.

Barrel is a hard fitted Bar-Sto. 

I added some slim VZ Grips with a super scoop. It shoots amazing.

Will add mine when I get home. 

By custom do we mean hand built by someone or even customization is good for this thread?

Whatever you feel comfortable with.

@Ray Ray I wish I knew what all that means, but it's a good looking Beretta.
@High Exposure That piece is awesome.  Seriously.

@High Exposure

D Spring:  It lightens the double action trigger pull up without sacrificing reliability. 

G conversion:  it removes the safety on the decocker so the lever only decocks the gun.

G10:  VZ grips in G10, the color is Olive Drab.

This is my build by Angus @ CZ Custom.  It's a bull shadow slide/barrel on a shadow 2 frame with adjustable sights milled in, a fiber front, #11 recoil spring, SA trigger, magwell, & LOK grips.  It's my racegun.  Weighs around 50oz, makes 1911s feel light.  It's in 9x19 and it recoils completely flat.  Photo cred to my awesome wife!

I didn't know Beretta's could get worked over.  Very nice Troy.  

Wilson Combat does work on them, as does Cylinder and Slide (i think).  Plus there are plenty of unknown smiths who do wonderful work.

I always forget about the WC thing.  I'm not a 92 fan.  I shoot them well but just don't enjoy them.

Look at Langdon Tactical for the current Beretta custom hotness. 

https://www.langdontactical.com/

His trigger job in a bag is amazing and affordable. It is also the tip of the Iceberg with the Langdon Tactical custom work. I had a chance to mess with some of Ernest’s personal Berettas and samples of his custom guns at Friends of Pat 2017 and man are they nice.

I am contemplating some flavor of Beretta 92 because of it.

I do need the short reach trigger though.

Also, I got to mess with @shooter28’s Wilson Beretta at a Sights&Triggers class a few months back. It was amaze balls!

Heres my Beretta that Wilson worked on.

G10 Grips

Short Reach Trigger

Action Tune

D Spring 

Single side, low pro safety

Battle rear sight

Fiber Optic front sight

I really like it although I want to switch out the safety. The low profile is great but when its cold or you have gloves on, its very hard to use. I want to do a single side, g conversion

Also plan to get the WC elite hammer, and oversized safety. Maybe get the mag well milled a bit too.

 

Heres my most recent custom handgun.

Polymer80

Factory glock frame internals (plans to replace the trigger in the future)

SLR magwell

Zaffiri Custom slide

Zaffiri TiN barrel

Zaffiri slide competition kit.

Just waiting on iron sights and red dot ( milled for RMR). Also since I stippled the area right in front of the slide lock, I need to get an extended one since its very hard to grab

  • 67 How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"

    1. 1. How important is it for you to have your next pistol be "Optics Ready?"


      • Very, (Do not want to pay for slide cutting, Looks cool, etc.)
      • Neutral (don't have a preference either way)
      • Not at all (not a feature I am looking for).
    2. 2. How much are you willing to pay for "Optics ready"? (i.e. gun is cut for an optic)


      • Up to $50
      • $50 to $100
      • $100 to $200
      • $250 or more
      • None. If it is not standard part of the gun, not willing to pay more for a model with it.
    3. 3. Why are you looking for Optics Ready?


      • Planning on adding optic.
      • Want to have the option just in case
      • n/a
    4. 4. Why do you want to add an optic?


      • Looks cool/tactical or someone told me I should
      • Need it for deteriorating eyesight.
      • To compete in certain gun games (USPSA Carry Optics)
      • Other Reasons

    • So is this another option? https://franklinarmory.com/franklin-armory-xo-26-r2/  
    • I didnt hear what ever came of that...  but here is another  story.  https://www.tngunowners.com/forums/topic/108864-atf-prosecution-for-pistol-as-sbr/page/2/
    • What a country, huh?  Where else can you take something good, declare it as bad, redesign it to be better and not bad and then invent something to reverse the good turning the bad back into something good that was bad and profit off of it?  God bless America.  
    • @Sniper You know that your comparison of me to Gregory "Joey" Johnson is totally bogus and just your inflammatory way to personally attack me without really considering the point(s) I make and respond with an intelligent and articulate comment.  From my previous posts here, anyone can tell that I respect our flag and what it stands for.  I totally disagree with the association of our flag to other issues that Johnson made in his quote that you posted. In a similar fashion, it would be if I compared you to and cited one of the many hateful proclamations made by Richard B. Spencer, the wife-abuser, American neo-Nazi and white supremacist and president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank.  That would be an extreme over reaction and not fair to you, even if you may agree with some of his stated positions.  I really do think we all need to throttle back down the hateful comments.  Yes, I have been guilty of writing some incendiary posts and will try not to make them personal towards other posters and focus on the point I am trying to make.  It is hard not to take criticism personally, but I think that I and all of us should at least try to rise above making negative comments towards each other, ranging from snarky barbs, to petty insults to slanderous and hateful accusations, since they clearly are not productive and just makes things worse on both sides. Also, we are all human with imperfections and histories of decisions and actions performed in the past that we now may regret or would have done differently.  So there really never will be any candidate devoid of flaws or previous bad choices.  Therefore, we all have to make do with whom we feel, moving forward, will have learned from their past successes and failures, and act and perform their duties in the best interest of our country.  We all are free to make that challenging choice and decision ourselves, which of course includes taking a chance and/or leap of faith. That is one of the reasons I am currently leaning towards supporting Joe Biden's candidacy.  Yes, he has had some creepy moments with people and I do wish he could just come out and sincerely apologize for how he treated Anita Hill at the Clarence Thomas hearings in the Senate.  Yet, from the current ridiculously large crop of Democrat candidates who have migrated to the far-left, (way too far in my opinion), I think that Biden is the most moderate and acceptable of the bunch. So is it really too much to ask for you and others to accept that there are many folks who really do not like Donald Trump and never have and are seeking a viable alternative candidate to vote for?  You may not agree with us, but that is the beauty of our Constitutional system, 1st Amendment rights, that allows us all to express our different opinions.  But ideally, to do so respectfully.  AVB-AMG
