Deluxe SAF Eagle's Head Wooden Box - 10x12
This Deluxe SAF 1911 Box includes a removeable custom-made French-fit interior to house your Limited Edition Second Amendment Foundation 1911 Pistol and spare magazine. In fact, it will fit almost any standard 1911A1 pistol and magazine.The design is made of 32 different pieces of wood naturally colored and 12 different species of trees to produce the artistic scene. Natural variations will occur. No two boxes are exactly alike and they are Signed by the Artist! Specify Green or Purple crushed velvet for the interior when ordering.
Q: Will this fit just any 1911?
A: Sadly, no. A standard 1911A1 with old-school A1 (Military Spec) was used to make the pattern. We realize that a lot of you like to customize your 1911's like other's customize their cars, but it's impossible to make a "French-fitted" insert one-size-fits-all. Why not? Well, you ever see one of those really skinny French models and wonder if her velvet clothes might be painted on? "French-fitted" is like that. Or a sexy shoe fit. Yeah, I said that. "French-fitted" means snug. In fact, on first use you might think your gun doesn't fit it all. You might have to put the grip in first, then move up toward the grip safety and hammer, and put your hands on the barrel end of the slide to push it in. (Insert antiquated shoe horn/prybar joke here.) Just like a shoe, the material does have a bit of "give" worked in. Over time, the "French-fitted" velvet will mold and wrap around your gun just like the model's clothing. Are you still with me or did I lose you at the model with painted on clothes?! Oh well. Point is, we don't call it "French" because it's foreign-made. The inserts are hand-made right here in Colorado!

After informing Ms. Janelle Tomasovich (Company VP) of the issue she got right to work on making things right. The next week I had new French-fitted interior exactly as requested. The fit on this one was first rate and accommodated most of my 1911's of varying makes and models. The customer service has been outstanding and I would not hesitate to purchase from them again.

Woodwork is very good and you get exactly what you see in the photos of the box exterior. Not so with the interior. Photos show mag laying flat in a cut out. What I received was for a mag to stand on its edge. No big deal but the tolerances for the cut outs are so tight as to accept only mags with no bumper pads at all. The same holds true for the gun. Any 1911 with sights other than original factory do not readily fit. Mine would also not accomodate the beaver tail grip safety or a curved back strap as in the 1911 A1. I have a half dozen 1911's and only the original 1911 military model would fit. Really, the tolerances should be a bit more liberal to fit more 1911's. This is not a CUSTOM fit after all.
