Bobtail antenna

bobtail antenna For many years, the conventional wisdom has been that bobtails and half squares are mainly low band DX antennas and are not the best choice for close-in work.

Although there are times when DX signals arrive at higher angles, and these exceptions actually happen quite often, lower propagation angles are usually the best for DX work.

Bobtail 1911 grips

bobtail 1911 grips Finally! Crimson Trace Master Series LG-906 Lasergrip for the Bobtail 1911 Ever since I bobtailed my Colt Commander back in 2008, I have pestered Crimson Trace for a set of their Lasergrips to work on a bobtail 1911. I first fell in love with the bobtail 1911 back in 2006, when I reviewed the Dan Wesson Bobtail. I liked the gun, loved the shape of the grip, but did not like the weight of the all-steel gun for carry.

bobtail 1911 This defensive pistol combines the best features of the Government Model and an eminently concealable round-butt revolver. Called the "Bobtail," this custom 1911 is distinguished by a simple but unique mainspring housing which radically alters the way the wonderful old Government Model pistol feels. Perhaps the best comparison is to look at the difference between a round-butt versus a square-butt revolver.

1911 bobtail conversion 1911 Bobtail Conversion. Chief cook and bottle washer Join Date Apr 2008 Location Avon Posts 6,884 I have done some of these for my self and if you are handy with your hands I suggest buy the jig to do them with and do it your self. The jig cost $45. 00 vs I think labor minus parts is around $75. 00 to cut the bobtail. You can get the mainspring housings from MidwayUSA or I get most of my 1911 stuff from Fusion Firearms.

1911 bobtail Bobtail Kimber update. After locating the new mainspring housing hole with the Ed Brown jig, it was time to cut off the excess material from the old hole. I cut the most part off with a cut-off wheel on a Dremel, and then moved onto a file, gradually going to sandpaper. After about an hour of sanding, filing and blending in, I had a good fit. I decided to use some touch up blue, and blue the new Ed Brown mainspring housing and the frame area I just cut.
