semi-custom

  1. General 1911 talk
    For the experience Addicts, what is the recommendation for a semi custom gun purchase, order direct from the manufacturer or use a dealer, or it doesn't matter? The two I have, I ordered direct, it just seemed logical to me as I was ordering specific features and not a std model. I got a...
