If you're going through all that, you may as well order an SVI. I'd skip the 357 Sig and go straight to 10mm. How does you "list" handle custom shop guns?

Update: went with 10mm (Jarvis barrel), Caspian Slide with their version of tri-cut, and an extreme shooters VIP grip. It will be a couple months before the slide arrives, so I’ll be picking up the balance of internals slowly. I think I’m going to go with an SVI trigger, probably Wilson Combat for the balance of 1911 compatible parts. Just debating stainless or blued/nitrided for the external control (stainless frame and slide, black grip module).

I probably won’t have this finished before Memorial Day, but it will be a fun project (and exercise in patience)!

Well, my Caspian slide should be here today (after the Jarvis barrel arrived about a month ago). I’ll be waiting on the UPS man impatiently Just about 19 weeks since I ordered it... I’ve collected every other part (except the barrel bushing which I have waited until hopefully this evening to order after taking calipers to the slide), as well as some tools specific to proper xx11 fitting. With summer and homestead projects in full swing outside it will probably take me at least another month to get this completed but I’m stoked that the wait is finally over

My sonís broken leg is probably going to delay commencement of work for a couple weeks, but I thought Iíd share some pictures of slide. Caspian custom in 10/40, Jarvis commander barrel in 10mm, frame from Rogue Tac (but I need to nip the dust cover back; they are provided long so the end user can decide how to complete the dust cover - as you can see from the slide cuts Iím planning on having the dust cover run full length.

Internals/small parts are all EGW, Nighthawk, C&S. This will either be my new hands down favorite or the biggest waste of money since my first foray in HK. But I am really looking forward to fitting this myself. Iíve built a couple 1911ís before, but all governments and with mostly ďdrop inĒ parts, as opposed to these which are all hand fit.

If anyone knows a local shop that can do TiCN coatings, I may well get the rest of the stainless controls finished to match the barrel.

Super excited!

That is one sexy looking set of parts.

Hope your sons leg heals well

Nice. I have an 80% 2011 receiver and plan on doing a 6Ē barreled 10mm. Will be watching this thread!
