Strayer-Voigt Infinity pistols are made to each customer's specifications. By combining components from several Infinity models, I've made my own, Lego model of an Infinity handgun.
About this creation
Strayer-Voigt is a Texas based company that makes what I consider the most attractive M1911 style custom pistols of any, the Infinity series. While they do produce basic pistol models, they also have a very unique gun-builder, which allows the customer to select triggers, frames, slides, sights, and all manner of components. For my own, Lego Infinity, I looked at pictures of many Infinity models, and took specific components for my own. As an example, I used the squared trigger guard, black wrap-around grips with a light grey jet funnel bottom, a light grey frame, a white, angular slide, "aftermarket" high visibility sights, and a long, thin beavertail for my gun. Finally, Infinity pistols are available in many different calibres. As can be seen from the empty casings in the pictures, this would be a custom .44 Remington Magnum. Yes, it's rather fictional as I'm rather sure that there is no actual SVI in this calibre, but I'm taking some artistic license here - it's Lego.
From a Lego standpoint, the pistol is interesting in that it makes use of two, three, and four stud wide components. I wanted it to have a bit more dimension to it than my rubber band firing M1911A1, so I slimmed most of the gun down. The black grips are four studs wide, because SV pistols have double-stack magazines and therefore wide frames. The slide and frame are three studs wide, attached to the other components with the centering plates. Finally, the beavertail, trigger guard, and underside of the slide are two studs wide, and attached either between four-wide components, or to the the slide and frame with centering plates. The trigger, by the way, is one stud wide, and attached directly to the frame.
Toad: Upon checking you are indeed correct. Terribly sorry as I try my best not to spread misinformation.
This shot shows the view throught the sights. Infinity pistols are available with a different type of high visibility sight, but I chose a more radical design reminiscent of some of the Tritium glow sights available for pistols on the market today.
In this picture, the light grey jet funnel can be seen on the bottom of the grip. Strayer-Voight incorporates such funnels into their pistols on request, for slightly higher magazine capacity. I however, just like the look of them.
Here, the pistol is actually standing on its grip and beavertail. The simple front sight is visible, as well as the black portion of the end, which, while it doesn't especially resemble a barrel, at least gives the impression of one.
Realistically, the gun would seperate between the grey frame, with grip, and the white slide, and there would be a seperate barrel component. As you can see, my Infinity cannot do this, but it does look nice.
Here is my Infinity, resting on the pages of the book "The Complete Encyclopedia of Pistols and Revolvers", by A.E. Hartink. This book is an excellent resource if you are a fan of handguns. Here, we see the first pages of the Strayer-Voigt section. Notice the two Infinity Concealed Carry Compensator pistols just above and to the right of my gun's front sight. My Infinity mimicks many of their components, but is longer and has several other differences.
Finally, this picture shows the rest of my reference material. Top left is a picture of the Western Arms Infinity, which I used in conjunction with measurements obtained from the book above to ensure that my Infinity was the right size. Top right is a pair of Infinity Vision pistols, and bottom left is a titanium Infinity. Bottom right, is of course my model. The two pictures of real SV firearms were obtained from sviguns.com, Strayer-Voigt's website.
I don't know, maybe its the grip...maybe it's the barrel, but it looks too square. More square than the real gun. Okay, enough of that -- (+) Hammer looks like one, looks functional. (+) Incorporated the funnel thing well. (-) If you somehow made the underside of the barrel (white) round, then it would be better. (-) Grip looks a bit large. (+) The curve behind and under the hammer is very well made. Very simple. (-) The ejection port would look better if there are no studs. (+) The plethora of info you have on and provide with the gun. Overall: 3 out of 5
