So i've been toying around with the idea of ordering a custom 1911 for quite some time and looked at multiple shops. I've decided that since Springfield has been so good to me, and their work is just outstanding, I've decided to order one from them. I'm going to call them sometime either this week or next and place my order. Here's what I'm thinking: 5" barrel w/ bushing GI style serrations No front cocking serrations Ball cuts on slide Harrison Design long solid trigger pull tuned to 3.5# (not sure if i should go flat trigger on this one) Colt style undercut front strap 20LPI hand checkering on front strap Non-ILS checkered mainspring housing 10-8 u-notch rear Gold bead front? (i'm worried the gold bead will be too large to be accurate at longer distances) FBI nub slide stop Ion Bond whole pistol including small parts, barrel I've been saving up for a while and i know ill have quite a bit more time to save while i wait for the work to be done.
