After more than a year of these parts sitting around I am finally getting around to working on this build. This is my first attempt at building a 1911 in 9mm and first attempt at a ramped barrel.
Got it to the test fire stage this week and went to the range this morning. In 200 rounds the only problem is with one "Kimber" mag, when stuffed full the first round tends to nose dive into the ramp and not feed if I release the slide with the SS. Inserting the mag with the slide closed and racking it and all is well. Of the three 9mm mags I have they all seem to drop the projectile tip down when pushing the top round out, but just the one mag causes a problem feeding. Not sure what to do with this.

Outside of one problematic mag the gun functioned perfectly... feeding, firing and piling the cases up in the same area.
POI is 7.25 inches below POA at 15 yards (off hand) so I need to remove .101" off the front sight.

All that's left is the front sight, refinish the sights, some cosmetic machining, blend the slide rear and beaver tail, complete de-horn and bead blast. Oh, and get a set of correct grips!



I will post more pics when it's all done. But for now I'm very happy with how it runs.

Progress pics... it's coming along!









Got the front sight machined to the correct height and serrated.


Also this weekend I got the rear sight massaged a bit and both sights Parkerized,
painted and baked while the wife was away from her oven!

It's about wrapped up, went to the range today to double check my sight corrections. I had removed .101" off the top of the front as well as angled and serrated the back surface of the sight blank then parked and painted.

This target was 50 rounds at 15yds.







I also de-horned the rear sight.











Sorry for the poor iPhone pics and lighting. They don't do it justice!
