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 some pics of the gun with some Business End Customs swag...



















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 .........

Thanks. I can do something similar to this in usually less than 2 months.

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!
