  1. quick update, and I really appreciate the guys who posted here as well as a couple PMs from others that I received - I didn't realize I had so many excellent choices. I went with Wilson Taxidermy in Franklin. I just got the mounts back, and I was extremely pleased with entire experience. Really nice guys, offered me lots of options & ideas. Thanks!
  2. That would make an excellent Christmas present for you to give to yourself : - )
  3. Relist lower price - I have two Colts for sale: 1. Colt Series 80 Enhanced flat top Two-Tone Light Weight Concealed Carry Officer ( CCO ) 45acp (factory matt stainless commander slide & lightweight aluminum officer frame). Used, no box or papers. I am not sure which grips are correct - probably Colt wood with gold medallion? Factory mild carry dehorn of sharp edges, matt finish, sights, beavertail, hammer, trigger etc. I did have sharp butt corner slightly rounded (a "baby bobtail" to you 1911 guys) so doesn't dig into my hand. Used, has obvious marks in the light, and could use a detail cleaning, but still in my opinion a very nice Colt carry 1911. 'asking reduced $675 OBO 2. Colt Series 70 Blue 45acp Government 5" barrel. No box or papers. serial "70G" is 1973 in my database. Story was in nightstand drawer entire life, clearly not a safe queen and you can see the marks on it but still a nice old Colt. Could definitely use a detail cleaning, appears all original and un-altered to me. Please note there appears to be the original machine 'crosshatch' on feed-ramp, something I had heard of but never seen before this pistol. Asking areduced $650 OBO. Face to face in Middle TN (Nolensville / Brentwood / Cools Springs) area, prefer TN carry permit and a Bill of sale. I am not really looking for any trades right now, but I would consider the right Nightforce or Schmidt & Bender scope. Thanks, Tim
  4. thank you both! (and Shaun that is a really nice buck) Tim
  5. I am looking for a taxidermist in middle TN (prefer Cool Springs / Nashville / Smyrna but willing to drive further) to mount a couple older sets of deer horns. Not full shoulder mount, just antler with small skull section to be mounted on a nice wood plaque with leather cover. These antlers have been in the garage a while. We were planning a 'do it yourself' eBay kit over winter but our first attempt wasn't presentable. The one guy I spoke to was buried in big jobs, and he didn't want to mess with these.... Thanks, Tim
  6. I'm reasonably handy , and I do work on old cars, but that is a far stretch to hand filing and fitting little 1911 parts....
  7. all very good points, thanks. I will do some more research, but plan to try a few small things this fall.
  8. 1911 guys - what types of basic 1911 things do you tackle yourself versus sending out to a pro? What is reasonable for a non-pro to do? For example do you tune/ adjust extractor, fit a thumb safety or slide release ? file-fit a new barrel? did you have formal instruction or self-taught? I have the greatest respect for professionals, and I don't mind paying to have it done right. I do dread sending a 1911 out for a 20 minute job, as it might take months to get back. And I have never seen a 1911 'drop-in' part, pretty sure those don't exist. For example this week I put a S&A magwell on a FrankenColt 38 super with a lot of sentimental value. Nice part, functionally it works great, but I have a small gap on bottom (compared to another professionally fit and blended magwell) that annoys me now. But I also can't imagine sending it out just for that. And I have looked at some 1911 armorer courses, but reality is I am not looking to spend a week building a 1911 from scratch. Is there a course out there that can teach me basic common stuff in a day or weekend? Thanks, Tim
