Here is my version of Rio Benson’s M1911-A1 REDUX.

Thanks to GrabCAD member Taras S for inspiring me to take on this project. You can download his model here.. Colt 1911-A1 Model Goverment Pistol
A very special thanks to GrabCAD member Al Trice who was kind enough to take on the task of checkering the grips for me. Unfortunately due to technical difficulties that I simply do not understand, his grips do not want to play well in my rendering software. They simply do not show up in either Photoview 360 or in Keyshot. I included both his grips as well as my grips in the package. Maybe someone has a clue to this problem.
You will notice the sear spring is not positioned in assembly. The spring is modeled in its relaxed state. I simply did not feel compelled to re-model it in its compressed state. I took a few other shortcuts here and there which you'll notice if you compare my models to the drawings.
I did a “pack and go” of the assembly. If any files appear to be missing let me know.
