    I got the call from my FFL I had been waiting for today. My Build from Lou at Business End Customs was in. The first thing I noticed from handling was how tight the fit was, and how well it was finished. I left from my FFL and headed to the range to try this bad boy out. I ran 200 Winchester White Box ball rounds and 6 Winchester PDX1s Hollow Points through it. This gun is so sweet to shoot. It runs so crisp and smooth. I wasn't shooting my best today, but it was okay because this gun can out shoot me for sure. I just ran her really hard to get everything broken in a bit. I will make another trip to the range soon and see what kind of tight groups she can produce.

    This is the build list. I am 99% sure this is all correct. Lou, if I am missing something, or you have anything to add about the extra stuff you did to the gun please chime in!!

    Here are a few pics of the results of the shooting... A few of these have some random off target shots from a friend shooting as well...




    I couldn't be happier with the outcome of this build. This was my first full custom build and I am sorry I waited this long to get one! Lou was a pleasure to deal with. He answered every question I had, kept me update very well, and built one hell of a nice 1911 for me! If anyone is thinking of having a build done, I would highly recommend giving Lou a call. I can assure you that you won't be sorry.

    Thanks for the hard work and amazing firearm Lou. I can't wait to start on the next project bro!

    Very nice, - if I was building something I would want that as a model - it's right up my alley, for sure. Out of all the builds I have seen come across this board since I've been a member that is my absolute favorite by far... what's the wait time on something like that? Just plain class all the way - I'm sorry, I'm gushing, oh my - that's not like me .........

    Good lord that trigger is... is... Phlat!

    Lou's mill must have quit on him before he could cut the proper radius on the shoe. :biggrin1:

    The rest looks awesome!
