    Off to the range and one of these is not coming back with me! Take a guess. Sometime ago I sent a Colt Railgun to Jason for a build and my spot is coming up and I have decided I no longer want a Railgun built as I no longer carry with a weapon mounted light (I Prefer offhand light techniques)...

    Every gun has challenges... some can be unique and others routine. These challenges and variables from gun to gun are what keeps everything interesting with the end result being to meet and best the hurdles a project might present. This gun had some of those challenges, both unique and...

    "For Jason Burton, "The Maker", building custom 1911s is more than just a passing fad or current trend. It is a passion with the goal to create only the best. A functional, useable, and classically styled pistol where no detail is too small or to be overlooked resulting in a legacy that will be...

    My love for building on Colt base guns knows no bounds. While the current production Series 70 Government Models are likely the best base guns Colt has every produced, many of the ‘70’s era guns can present challenges and at times a seemingly limitless amount of hurdles for a custom builder...

    I have been considering having a full custom 1911 built from a stainless Springfield 1911 I was recently given. I have sent my initial contact e-mail to Heirloom Precision and was wondering if any of the forum members have an Heirloom Precision pistol and direct experience with how it is to...

    I’m genuinely lucky in that much of what I do is building that special something for each customer. Whether it’s a two-tone Government Model or a classic blued and ivory stocked pistol, it’s the thing that embodies each customer’s idea of perfection or scratches an itch in just the right way...

    Everybody likes special... I’m certainly no different. Whether it’s a special suit, meal, gun, or whatever... there is not a person among us that doesn’t have an idea of what is special to them. No matter what the ‘special’ event or item the key element is for it to have meaning and as I...

    Recently I was on the hunt for a Jason Burton / Heirloom Precision 1911. If I couldn't find one in the secondary market I was prepared to send a recent production series 70 I have to Jason and get in line, but I wanted to see if I could find something available. I sent an email to Terry at P&T...

    I love my job... I get to walk into my shop each morning to play with guns and build cool stuff. I also get to shoot a lot... and I get to shoot everything I build, a lot. I’m never really sure what part is better, the banging, scratching, cutting, machining, and working on the guns or the...

    So in true addict fashion I’m selling my 38 super unicorn to chase a 9mm unicorn. It had not been fired when I picked this up from a fellow addict and I’ve since put exactly 150 rounds through it. It has never been holstered, no dents, dings or scratches. The only wear at all is the normal...
