    If you could have any build by anyone what would it be?

    I think I might want Rob at ACW or Alex at Guncrafter build me a Longslide that looks like a Nighthawk TRS Comp. In 10mm, hard chrome, bead blasted, naked slide , squared off trigger guard,,, long flat trigger, under cut trigger guard as like a ACW. All hard chrome small parts. Rear U notch sight hard chrome with black face. Front hard chrome sight with black face and gold bead. No wrap around grips. I don't like the look. But traditional 1911 grips and double stack magazine. No rails. Wide rear horizontal serrations. No fcs. Top slide serrations. Thin Ebony grips.

    A BEC or a Rogers for me. I'm humble but I would like a Stan Chen as well. Even as I dream I can't choose just one.
    I would like them to be 38 super CCO sized. Or 9/38 combo

    I have a full house Rogers fortunately so if I could have anything by anyone, full house by Jardine, Christensen, Burton.

    The Jardine will hopefully happen at some point, the other 2 I am not sure about.

    I think mine would be a Yost built 9MM Commander with both Ivory and Walnut grips to change it up.

    Toss up between Stan & Ned.

    Bobbed, railed commander in 9x23.

    I won't list the other specs, cause I want to be the one that has it :)

    Consecutive serial number builds from ACW. I have the money, I don't have the time.

    I’ll always say a gun built by Joe Chambers! But since I already have a few of them, something by Stan Chen would be a real treat. If I could get something from Ned that would be equally as cool as there just aren’t to many from their of them.

    As much as a I love Rogers for continued progress of the machine work and BEC for fit and finish it would have to be the Heirloom Precision Clint Smith signature mobile.

    But then I’m building an alum. framed 9mm 2011 with a Commander slide, Chambers RDSM and a chopped down STI grip so I’m all over the place.

    I would go with Rogers and the golf ball treatment. No one does the golf ball look with the bar of soap feel like he does. They are functional works of art.

    I have the 1911 I want. It's the 10mm I just built. On my own mill and lathe. :D

    I could have someone make it pretty I guess, but I like it the way it is.
