Custom themed box for 1911A1 Login/Join

I recently put up photos of my new Colt Python and the oak box I made for it. I really do appreciate the positive comments I got on that. I have made a few presentation cases along the way
and this was one of the first. It’s just a pine box with cdx plywood top. The heavy straps and slotted screws are in my mind suggestive of an earlier manufacturing era. I haven’t found my prize 1911A1 to keep in it yet but this Auto Ordnance is holding its spot in the meantime. I may have posted these pictures in the replies to my Dirty Harry box so if you have seen them before I do apologize. Thanks for looking, feedback is always appreciated good or bad. Brian.

With correct nsn added later

Looks good!

However, I'd be hesitant to store it in there for any significant length of time. Foam traps moisture and promotes rust. It'd be a shame to do that to a nice 1911.

Of course that's how most guns come from the factory an can is it those boxes for years.

Looks great, very cool.

Sliced bread, the greatest thing since the 1911.
