Nothing wrong with owning a Glock. Not every gun has to be a 1911. I have a Red Ryder BB gun myself.

I assumed we were speculating about a future where people didn’t have access to the modern chemical infrastructure. Meth is made by simply cleaving off a hydroxyl group from a readily available drug.

Modern primers are lead styphnate and barium nitrate. You’d need styphnic acid, made from nitrating resorcinol. That would be tough—you’d have to know which plants to distill resorcinol from.

Depends on if it’s a standard 1911 or one hard fit for accuracy. Also depends on how clean-burning the powder is. For an accurate 1911 it probably needs more cleaning, and it’s important to run it...

Nice work!

If you get an adjustable rear sight on it you’ve got yourself a great Service Pistol already. Accuracy should be more than enough with a Kart EZ Fit barrel.

Probably $3000 and up now--it's amazing how much M1911/M1911A1 prices have gone up just in the last couple of years.
