Have been eyeballing these for a couple years (yeah, I take a long time to bite). I'd be interested to hear how well they run. I've seen many good write-ups.

No problems. Fit, finish, and function all good. I am not a precision shooter and my eyes aren't what they used to be, so they'll easily outshoot me. Can't really comment on accuracy much beyond that, but they seem capable enough. Hard to beat for the price.

Finally received the lower for this 10.5" barrel 556 beauty. A little cameo action by the SA GI Defender that I tried my hand at smithing a bit. Very pleased with both.

Very nice. I know we have some experienced Smith's here but I'd consider the 1911 a serious accomplishment. I always thought about trying my hand with one.

I can honestly say that it was a great learning experience. Outside of the time consuming filling of the rear tangs to fit the beavertail, it wasn't really to bad. Fitting the trigger and adjusting the reset was simple. Actually had to massage the thumb safety a little. Changed the hammer, seer, and hammer strut thinking they're be no problems, but the safety wad hanging up a bit. I was real nervous about taking material there, but researched and just took time. Haven't had the chance to take it out yet, but it passed all of the pre range safety tests.
A lot of fitting, assembly, disassembly, fitting and repeat. Built a lot of confidence on knowing the firearm.

.458 Lott

I shoot handloaded 500 grain softs and solids out of it at 2250 fps.

It's fun shooting it at the range and scaring all of the people with ARs, but it's even more fun to hunt with.

OUCH!! That's got to make 3" slugs feel like a .308. A couple years back I had just sighted in my slug gun and went to go duck hunt with some friends. When we got to the farm of one of the guys they were trying to sight in the last groups on his 7mm Rem. Mag after a new scope was installed. They were all complaining about the recoil so I offered to give it a go. Being use to .308 and ..30-06 and never shooting the 7mm they had me a little worried about the recoil. I took the first shot wincing, after all the talk about the recoil, and almost missed the paper. I felt stupid and ask they they were talking about with the recoil! It kicks but not like slugs, I took 4 more shots, had an ok group, and we headed out to the marsh.

That's one nice rifle. I bet the does make a few people jump at the range.

Grumpy...It's not just an attitude, it's a way of life!
