    We are doing something a little different. As some of you know, we hand build custom 1911 pistols. As you would expect these are a little pricey (about $2,800 and up). I know this is a lot of money for most people so I have been thinking of ways I can get some of the same great qualities of a...

    Heard bill Wilson show of his collection of old pachmyer , Swensons, and hogue custom 1911s. I am better these are probably pretty hard to come by , I seen a Swenson a couple months ago on gunbroker , but I had never heard of them before , my question is , can these older custom 1911s be around...

    Another beautiful Supergrade from Wilson has arrived! This 5” Tactical Supergrade 45ACP is suit-and-tie clean, with smooth ironwood grips and a mirror polished baron blue finish. Perfect match for that commander special 9mm with the same finish. It’s a long long journey from conception to...

    The Supergrade feels like a completely different pistol with classic and nostalgic mirror polished baron blue finish. Mirror polished blue and ironwood is hard to beat🙌.

    While I am waiting for two of my birth year Colts to be built by Jason, I have been revisiting two of his builds I currently have. They are the perfect balance of Simplicity and Function. Classic, yet modern at the same time. His technique consists of chipping away everything superfluous in...

    I am certain I am not the only one who when you buy a gun you have been looking for goes on a deep dive for every bit of info you can find on said gun before it arrives. On such a dive yesterday regarding my purchase of a @Bunker Arms 10mm, I found this whopper. I have heard some doozies in my...

    Finally got a chance to have base guns and slide/frame ready for Tim to build me a carry duo set. A sidewinder based on Kimber Ultra Carry (didn’t know ultra carry but not ultra carry II model is so hard to find). A chopper CCO based on JEM officer frame (with square trigger guard and my...

    Stumbled across a short video on YouTube they posted a few years back with one of the 9mm guns shooting a quarter inch 5 shot group at 50 yards. The gun isn’t in the video so difficult to verify, but seemed impressive. Looked them up and he’s a Bob Marvel student...

    Acquired this older Springfield frame a while back which was topped with a Colt slide and high mount Bomar. @Karl Beining got the top end to no one's surprise. Built a solid shooter off the frame with a little rat tail and ring hammer. All new tool steel parts and some modern sights.

    Over the course of about the last year and a half this community has been a tremendous resource for someone relatively new to the platform. I just want to thank everyone for all the information and resources. This estate sale Springfield had some comments on my initial introduction post a few...

    A little background this is the first custom pistol I ever had built. I bought it used out of a local pawn shop 20 years ago and immediately took it to a good friend that was (he's passed on now) a very reputable gunsmith. He worked with my limited budget and made this what it is today. As such...

    I have talked to quite a few of you on some of the other posts and threads. Our goal is to offer a hand built 1911 for the cost of many factory 1911s. Here is our first model release. It is a commander size with a number of options available. Yes we are taking orders at this time. If you...

    Hello All! I am looking for some inspiration. I was hoping some folks could share some pics/stories of the most interesting/customized 1911! Porting, slide windowing, melting, other misc modifications....you name it! I am saving the funds to do a dream build, and I want it to be 100% my own.

    A few days ago I was at my lgs, a small home based shop, picking up a transfer I had sent to him. While talking with him I notice a tag that said "Colt 1911 $850". The gun counter was dark so I couldn't tell much about it so I ask him to grab it. He told me he bought the pistol off a older...
