As a part of new project I ordered a 10.5 inch .45 ACP barrel. It is chambered and in the white. After a few sketches and thoughts I'm leaning towards an M3 style build. Not a copy but a ground up pistol made in the vein of that old venerable gun. Home made with hand made and of the shelf parts. This will take a lot of thought and a lot of hand work. I anticipate using Springfield Armory XD .45 mags. Compact and holding 13 rounds and readily available and made of stainless steel. I'll probably use a AR grip modified of course and maybe even an AR trigger group. Dunno. If I can get the visions in my head converted into steel it will be way fucking cool. Any way I look at it will be a small mountain of work just to make a crap one. And I don't like crap. More to come.
