    I had a Crossman air pistol that looked like a Colt Python, now that SOB was near impossible to take down and put back together. I don't think I ever got the air piston back like it was supposed to be.

    I've got a catapult. And a pen-knife. ;-)

    Nice work on the leather Colt, and good luck with your studies.

    Next time i'm down at my dad's I have to take pics of his Galagher acoustic with the hand tooled leather cover. It is a mural on the back of a native american indian camp.
    I think you leather tooling guys would like it.

    Desert Warrior .......... just checked the catalog. That's a nice one.

    You'd think that for the money you pay for a Kimber, they could supply more than one magazine.

    Haha...I have the grand raptor 2 and the eclipse custom 2...and all the magazines I have from other suppliers just aren't as nice. I have to regulate how much I take them out because they ruin me for the other pistols that I use on a regular basis (Beretta M9 & H&k P2000)

    Ill call dibs on "Bulletcaster" for the 2012 challenge.

    I love my Colt Government model, and in the future, I hope to amass a large collection of higher end 1911s. The Browning 1911-22, is probably my next purchase.

    That looks like a lot of fun. Where do you get your leather and tooling from?

    A leather shop in town, but to be honest, they just order it from Tandy Leather. You can go online and request a free catalogue.

    Good news on the anvil. It works great, really kills the noise, and no vibration.
