    Excellent mold as always, but a bit more difficult to work with sometimes due to the prolific nature of customized 1911s. NONE OF THIS IS THE FAULT OF THE MOLD – there are more 1911 variants out there than stars in the sky, and in some cases even two identical pistols aren’t exactly the same dimensions. I’ve yet to come across a slide release or safety lever that doesn’t fit, but some wider grips can cause problems. If you have a heat gun this is an easy thing to adjust. Double stack frames are usually problematic as well, but if you get creative you can probably make it work.

    I have found that slightly thinner variants like the Springfield EMP fit very well, typically with nothing more than cinching down the retention screws (and shortening the muzzle).
