    I finally got my chicken coop found 1911 slide fitted to one of my extra Essex frames. This poor slide came out of the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket in a buddy's chicken coop. Poor thing was a ball of rust and all the openings completely full of mud...

    They really are a classic and great running pot. They have a feel and a style that the newer pots just can't match. I'm glad you're talking the time to put this one back together. I have a feeling your going to really enjoy it. The only real issue...
