    Shot my Krebs Custom ORM Colt 1991A1 Commander in a local action pistol match today. What a great handling and shooting gun, it's one of my favorites. Mark Hartshorne recently fit a gold bead from a S&W revolver sight to the Heinie front sight and I hadn't had a chance to shoot it since I got the slide back. The gun ran perfectly, not a single hiccup, and it made me look like I knew what I was doing. I won single stack, don't know my position overall yet.

    Excellent. This man has some of the most well put together 1911's in the Northern hemisphere.

    It's a Heinie XX mag well that Marc Krebs contoured to his liking and checkered. Works great and like the Chen design, doesn't add any length/width to the grip frame.

    Noticed the gun has a Briley barrel. Claudio makes some great barrels and all of mine are definitely shooters.

    Gorgeous work! Glad to see she is not a safe queen.

    Thanks. No safe queens here any more. Everything I own gets shot, some more than others, of course, but it sure is fun to take guns like this one out to matches and give them a run. And, beating everybody but the guys with the full on race guns with a gun that was customized 20+ years ago certainly speaks to the quality of the build and the effectiveness of the modifications made. Guns like this are why I advocate shopping the used market for older custom builds from quality 'smiths, if you buy right you can get a lot more gun for the money than buying new. Plus, they're just so darn cool.:)

    What are some of the Smith's you look for on the older builds?
