    I agree. If you are like me, I don’t change grips, hardly ever. But if you wanna changes your grips as often as you’re underwear, you are bound to strip out a bushing. So why not use challis bushings that are much easier to replace when and if needed.

    All this activity and upcoming proposed orders of ACW begs the question how long can Rob continue his individual attention to each order with the increased volume? At some point I guess you make the decision whether to produce just a limited amount of guns and the subsequent wait list becomes years instead of months.

    I have it on good authority that the wait time at ACW
    may be increasing after some new orders being placed today!:)

    I'm going to take credit for that beveled hammer. I had him do it on one of my guns before he joined Cabot and he said he liked the result.

    Not sure how I've missed this thread until now.
    I like that a lot! Please keep us updated on these beauties. Unfortunately I'll have to live vicariously through you all until I find a pre Cabot build on a komi legal base. Thanks for sharing guys.

    You guys and these ACW's are killing me! I swore off new major purchases... Ya'll are gonna have to talk to my wife. Only thing holding me up is deciding between a classic carry or an anomoly. Guess I'll sleep on it AGAIN!

    @Dwe, That Prime 45 is about as pure 1911 as it gets. True to its roots. I know that's what you tend to lean towards.
    I also prefer the classic style of the original design.

    What you said in an earlier post #44 comparing a small gun shop to a assembly line one I agree.
    I'm a rookie compared to you and many others here. But I'm quickly learning what is what concerning value for money spent.
    Not so many undervalued 1911s on the market. From what little I know it's plain to me that ACW is certainly one of those. I have one on order now but I have a feeling that it will be followed by more.
    Thanks to this forum and members like you I'm learning more all the time.
