Freedom Firearms in Battle Creek, MI have an awesome new mailbox:
Fabricated by Steve’s Welding here in Battle Creek Michigan. He said the project took about 4 months in his spare time. It’s all steel and wood. there is 4 feet of concrete in the ground and an internal post through the grip frame. The hammer is checkered, and the back of the grip is evenly ribbed.
I can’t tell from the pictures whether or not the mail goes in the business end of the 1911, but I am assuming it does.
I don’t know how much Steve’s welding would charge for one of those, but judging by the amazing detail it wouldn’t be cheap. I wonder if he could make me a Glock one? *Insert exploding mail jokes here*
I checked on google maps stree view hoping to find some more pictures of the mailbox, but sadly the picture was outdated.
Sure beats their old mailbox! Judging by the first 2 pictures the old mailbox is still there, but probably no longer in use.
