    WOT: Need Some Help With A Project

    Ok, I know this isn't specifically OC related but it definitely is WA and firearm specific. I need someone to help me with a project to make a jig. If someone in the Puget Sound area (preferably Kitsap County) who has a factory built bobtailed 1911 could help me, I would appreciate it (might even be a lunch involved.) I need to locate the mainspring housing pin in an existing 1911 jig I have to make bobtailing 1911s easier for me. So if someone has one, and doesn't mind dropping by my shop for a few minutes then having lunch, shoot me a PM or better yet an email (marcus@celticarmory.com) Thanks.

    Ok, how about any 1911 (Gvt or Cmdr) that was bobtailed and done well? I just need to mark holes for drilling my 1911 vice block.

    Sorry, I own a Glock,. but replied just to let you know you aren't talking to yourself. I posted on the S Dakota page asking S Dakotans for any info on Jack First for an old Colt pistol I want repaired, nothing. I replied to myself, like you did here, and then finally an out of stater replied with some usable info.
    Be safe, be prepared, and carry on!

    Jack First has a website but it's only for their contact info. As far as I know they only deal with licensed dealers/gunsmiths. If you need help getting parts let me know.

    You should shoot Ruby a PM. I think hers might be bobtailed.
