A beautiful photo of a post WW2 Colt National Match. The gun that would evolve into the Gold Cup. Photo from our friends at the Vintage 1911.
A friend on instagram showed off his two national match Super .38s. They really are beauties. The mag is two tone as part of the treatment process to keep the feed lips and spine of the magazine from cracking.
I was over at Gulf Coast Armory today with my laser cutter and we were playing around with various settings and materials.
We tried various speeds and power levels on an A2 stock. Then cut the GCA logo into that test stock.
We also tried using the laser on Cerakoted alumnium. Didn’t quite get the result we wanted, but we think we could get the result we wanted with some adjustments.
Laser cutting and engraving gives us more ways to customize our guns. It is interesting to see what we can do.
