  • *PICS ADDED* STI Ranger II .45ACP done, by John Harrison

    All it needs now is a trip out of state to be coated in IonBond DLC.

    Here's the list of work done to my stock STI Ranger II:

    Replace rear sight with HD Extreme Service rear in plain black, replace front with tritium sight

    Face of barrel flush with slide and recrown with recessed crown

    HD Extreme Service ignition set with Commander hammer, Duty/Carry trigger job

    Fit ambidextrous thumb safety of my own design/configuration

    Fit 10-8 slide stop, countersink slide stop pin hole and recess pin

    Machine frame for EGW mag well, heli arc on, dress out and blend to frame and grips. Shorten grips to match magwell

    Legacy Custom MaxRamp MSH, scallop to match chainlink pattern on front strap

    Serrate rear of slide, extractor & ejector 50lpi to match rear sight

    HD Extreme Service oversize firing pin stop

    Narrow front of slide for Hi Power cuts

    HD Carry groove grips, black G-10

    HD Extreme Service extended mag catch

    Refinish all in matte IonBond DLC

    I'll have pics up when I get it back. Here's a few John sent me of the EGW magwell fit up.

    It's knowing that when I get up in the morning and my feet hit the floor, the Devil says, "Shit! He's awake!"

    Shortly before World War I, the German Kaiser was the guest of the Swiss government to observe military maneuvers. The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

    Looks Good! I like your thoughts on the safety...once you have to unlock it...no point going back from there are the pics a little deceiving...or is that side off and the other side on

      The pics don't show the right-side/left-harder safety. I cut it down into a profile very similar to USGI. Enough to use if you need it, but out of the way otherwise.

        I used an Ed Brown ambidextrous thumb safety. I slimmed the left side safety back slightly, then cut the right side safety back to nearly USGI style. This gives me enough to use in an emergency, but it's small enough that it's out of the way. I really like the way it turned out.......I like the way the entire pistol turned out! John is truly an artisan.

        The tenth picture down shows how the OAL of the STI grip frame is the same length with the welded-on magwell as a standard 1911 without a magwell. For comparison is my SAI TRP that John also did.

        The final pic is my rig, built by Ryan Grizzle of R. Grizzle Leather. Black leather with sharkskin trim.

              Very nice looking rig, Shep! Simple, functional, with an understated elegance.

                Took her to the range today for a 300rd workout. BORING!!!!

                Shot a mix of factory 230grn FMJ, 230grn FMJ handloads, 185grn FMJ-HB handloads and Speer Gold LE 230grn HP's.

                Fed and functioned perfectly. Slide always locked back when it was supposed to, dropped when I told it to. Mags slid right in and dropped free easily. All rounds went smack dead center. 8rd groups were a single, ragged hole.

                The trigger was smooth and crisp, no overtravel, reset just took a subconscious thought. It routinely made holes in paper where I wanted them and made steel jump and ring.

                Didn't have to TAP-RACK, clear a stoppage or malfunction, wrestle with a magazine, etc.

                BORING!

                I wish all guns were this boring......

                    I wish my 1911 ran smooth enough to be boring. That is one nice looking gun. I'm really digging the cut down right side safety, it's always felt unneeded for me to have a giant safety on that side since it is just for backup.
