    I just installed the Retro spur hammer along with sear, disconnector and medium length trigger on my Colt Classic. It looks fantastic and gives the trigger a much cleaner and smoother break. Mr. Harrison is a class act, I couldn't be more thrilled with my experience!!!! I like posting pictures...

    Folks. Wanted to post a quick review on a transaction I just completed with Mr John at Harrison Design. First in summary it was awesome. What a great guy to deal with and a great smith! I have a 2017 Valor that I purchased used. Gun was in great shape, spotless, and very low round count...

    Just a quick story to sing the praises of a company that provides outstanding customer service. I've always found John Harrison parts to fit better than most that are available and I'm using mostly Harrison parts in a build I'm working on now. I spent some time working on it last Saturday...

    Hi all, I can’t seem find much info on this offering from John. He seems to prefer this over his gold dot front sight based on his blog entry about front sights. Anyone have experience with it? Compared to his gold bead? Edit: I’ll be pairing this with a retro style u notch rear I’m pretty on...

    Hey fellow addicts, I am currently in the process of writing down on paper my next build with one of our fellow 'smiths. I had a question for those with a Harrison slide stop. If you hold your 1911 with your left hand (yes, please pretend to be a left handed shooter :o.o:), can you get enough...

    After enjoying our last four years in the US, the time has come, like we knew it would, to return back to Australia. As you all would know, there is almost no chance of being able to take firearms back with us. Not the time and place for a debate on other countries gun control laws, it is what...

    Tried to order some parts from his web site, but first you have to create an account and log in. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to create an account, nor will the software tell me what is wrong? Is there some undocumented trick to this that I am unaware of? :) Thanks

    Hello. I have tried to sell this here before and didn't get many bites. If I'm doing something wrong or you have hesitation let me know. From time to time I want to have something new and when that happens I look at my "Gun Fund" and realize it's not flush. When that happens I look in the safe...

    For those who have tried the Harrison Design Extreme Service safety, how do you like it? Are there real-world advantages, like easier to flick off, easier to ride on top of it? Or is it just a question of "different looks"? Thanks!

I have the original build sheet with John's hand writing and total work 20yrs ago was $1050 not including the gun. I also have correspondence from...
