    I have been on the fence about buying any new pistols, but since I've sold somethings off I figured why not. All the talk over the last few months has made me curious for the GI No Name. I haven't heard anything bad about one yet so figure it's worth a shot. I didn't want to be left out and just have to find out if all the talk does the pistol justice. I was going to buy a Baer SRP, and still might, but I caved on the NN.

    They are willing to do a few options I haven't seen on one yet so I should have something no one else has yet :biggrin1: I like my pistols being different, plus I like the options from a functional/aesthetic point of view. I hope the wait isn't too bad...don't want to buy something else to pass the time :lol:.


    I blame all the current NN owners, I could have lived in piece had I not read all the reviews :thumb:

    I just ordered mine last week, I suppose we should get ours about the same time. Unless you have connections that I don't, heh.

    No connections here...that I'll disclose.


    How long were you quoted? I was told around 14-18 weeks...not a bad wait all for me.

    Did you go through Dave or straight from Guncrafters John? By the way congrats. From looking at the pictures from your other 1911s I know this one is going to be badass also.

    I got quoted 12 weeks. Maybe mine set you back a few weeks! I called several other semi custom manufacturers, well, all of them actually, and they all pretty much quoted me 5 to 6 months.

    Thanks...I should stop buying one of these years, but that's easier said then done.

    I'm using George for this order. I've dealt with him on several of my pistols plus I like his payment/order plan.


    5-6 months isn't too bad really. When you wait over a year, then it is rough.

    Heavy chamfer on lower slide edge and checkering under the trigger guard. I'm debating on getting a Ed Brown grip safety over the CMC? they use and I'm unsure on a magwell, but I might pass since I have several with. There's something else I'm forgetting...can't think right now.

    Mine is pretty basic, I asked for a 10-8 rear sight, and black trigger. They do use CMC grip safeties, I asked them which they use when I ordered mine.

    I thought so, it looked too much like one. I'm just not sure if the Brown part will work as well for the fit. I might just leave it be on the GS choice.

    I thought about the 10-8 but like the looks of GI's sight enough to try it.
