    Okay, you don't currently have a 1911 (C'mon play along! :biggrin1:), and you've just won the grand prize that says you can order ANY three 1911's that your heart desires! Tell us what's going to be coming in the mail!

    Hmm. Good question!

    Off the top of my head:

    - a '50s to '60s bullseye 1911 in good condition, like a Chow, Day, or Giles
    - a full-out fighting gun by Liebenberg, Vickers, or Heinie
    - one of those nicely blued commercial 1911A1s from the '30s

    GI Model 3 with 45acp conversion
    Colt commander with serial # 00001LW
    Custom build from Bob Rodgers, Chuck Rogers, Dave Berryhill and Chuck Warner (this counts as one since I would order them at the same time).

    Les Baer Custom, Mono Heavy weight in 10mm. I know, this one is as much a pipe dream as the first two.

    I don't think Teddy is building complete pistols anymore. The last time I talked to him he had given it up and is just doing trigger jobs and minor gunsmith work. His trigger work is exceptional.......at least the 1911's and Sigs that he had done for me over the years.

    I wish I had more hands, so i could give this thread 4 thumbs down. Where are the pics to drool over, eh?

    I'm seriously thinking about a Yost/Burton build if I can sell a few things, so it may be a reality for me.

    My list.


    1. Yost/Burton collaboration of sorts - There are two from each that I like the most, so I'd like find a mix of the two

    2. Bob Rodgers/Chuck Rogers - Seen a few done before so it should could as one.

    3. Ned Christiansen - To be different since I rarely seen him mentioned, and he does some wild stuff. His Conamyds are definitely unique.

    I'm totally novice here with these custom builds, so I'm going to just read and learn, The few I see here look fantastic...maybe someday, maybe....

    I'm just not yet ready to run with the big dogs...someday maybe!
