Heavy sucker with that barrel weight. Fun to shoot. I’ve repaired several in the last few years.

Sweet Jesus that's a HUGE barrel weight. When you run out of bullets it doubles as a club.

Interesting adaptation of a 1911 frame mount to the barrel weight.  I assume the barrel weight was slab sided to mount it?

An aluminum block was machined to replace the barrel weight and accept the modified 1911 frame mount. I came up with the idea when I couldn't find a scope mount for it. A gunsmith friend built it for me.

The grips are from Andrew Berryhill.

I thought it would be nice to have a fairly unique Unique...................... I can tell which one is mine on the bench.................

Very cool Ric. The original scope mounts bridged from the rear sight to the barrel weight.

Thanks, Jon............

There are some after-market ones that attached in place of the barrel weight, similar to the Hammerli 208 mounts, but I couldn't find one.............

It appears I may have to switch hands again (for the fourth or fifth time), so I need to come up with some left-handed interesting grips.................

The one in the Gunbroker listing is just like the one I have.Straight trigger,heavy barrel weight identical.Mine came in a yellow Styrofoam box though.Wonderful pistols.I'm kind of surprised at the money it brought.I thought these had fallen out of favor.I really should get get an optics mount made,get the barrel lined,and shoot mine more.-Mike
