this is a small version of the famous government model colt 1911 semi automatic pistol. i built it, for ease of handling and firing, and for comfortable carry and ease of concealment.
the parts have come from various sources. more on that later.
it is shown against the image of a 7 round magazine made for small 1911's. suffice it to say, that all efforts have been made to reduce "the signature" of the beaver-tail grip safety and hammer: more details on the build will follow. it was the project that consumed last winter's doldrums.
