    Icon17 Upgrades round 3 - Kahr Auto-Ordnance "WWII Parkerized" 1911PKZSE

    He everyone! Looks kinda quiet around here!
    Just wanted to share some upgrades. Not sure why I've spent so much on this gun, but it has been fun.
    Found a great 1911 gunsmith local to me: https://americanpistolsmithsguild.co.../dave-laubert/
    Dave did a trigger job (4lb) with another new trigger, cut a dove-tail and installed new sights, Wilson extended thumb safety and a general tune-up.
    The gun is really coming around, and I'm considering getting it Cerakote'd with a new finish. Maybe a new barrel.
    Can't wait to get it to the range!! I'm very eager to get it sighted in...

    History of upgrades: http://forum.m1911.org/showthread.ph...quot-1911PKZSE

    Looks great!
    Let's see a range report.
    Beauty is skin deep but ugly goes right to the bone.

    I added the flgr kit with the 18# recoil spring, a disconnector ramp, and she functions awesome.

    I'm happy to report, she's a shooter! This is 16 holes from 20 feet (that = 20 yards in internet forum talk BTW . )

    Was just getting it sighted in and really enjoyed my day at the range! Might need more testing and a few clicks up look in order.
    I'm not sure I want to change the barrel now. This looks good enough for me...for now .



    Took the 9mm Springfield RO Op along to join in the fun!! It's had a few trips to the gunsmith too.
