Hi, loki. Just go to www.1911patriotcop.us. Also, you can probably just PM the instructor, who posts here occasionally as Captain Eagle (his post appears just above yours in this thread).

Best,
Jon

Well, I went through the pistol once more before sending to Dave, and while smoothing the beavertail just once more, I rendered it inoperable! Crud! Installed another - PROPERLY this time - and test fired today. First three rounds only made it about 1/2 way from the mag into the pipe, as a result I believe of lack of lubrication. After that, 10 mags went through without a hitch, including the first mag. So, it's done. Sent it off to Dave for grading and finishing. I'll miss it until it comes back - we have spent a LOT of time together over the past few months!

Best,
Jon

Another completed Patriot! I did the logo on a CNC mill and knocked the instructor's socks off! I was in the 2005 class; one of the best classes I've ever taken....period!

We liberated that font like right now and that is what we use for the website, too. Roy was happy to let us have it. He built a fine gun that went to the Shot Show and was admired by hundreds of gun people. He represented the Class of 2005 and did a fine job of it! Thanks again, Roy! I have some great pics of that gun in my hard drive!

Hey, I recognize that pistol! I've seen it on the web before and liked it so much I even saved a few photos of it! Isn't that Patriot 55?

Hey Jon,
Yup, 'tis P55 in all her glory! Got some photos of some of my other builds.

Castle Defender I built and hand-checkered the front strap with Dave's help. Bead blasted and parkerized it in my garage.



And my Gladiator 9mm wide body I use for 3-gun competition. First time I shot it in a match I had no misses, a clean match! Bead blasted and parkerized in my garage also. Milled front cocking grooves and sight dovetails with my bench-top mill (NOT the CNC mill).



I have a hobby CNC mill at home that I like to engrave personalized logos on the slide, like I did with P55. Also, the "Defender" and "Gladiator" both have custom-built/custom-fit trigger shoes that I also made on my CNC mill so there's no wobble. Posts for both of these builds are on Daves Place under Pistolsmithing.
