Sneak Peak at First MTG 1911 Pistol

Bob is near completion on the first MTG 1911 pistol.  This one was built with IDPA in mind…9mm with red optic front sight and adjustable rear sights, a 2 1/4 lb trigger, ideal for ESP division.  A carry version might use a fixed rear sight, night sights, and a heavier trigger.  Here are the particulars.
