    So I was browsing around looking at some of the other 1911 custom shops work out and came across some from Novak's Custom shop. They have pictures for 3 of the 4 packages they offer but they don't have a picture for the special ops package. I went to trusty google and still couldn't find one. I was wondering if anyone has a Special ops package done by Novak and would like to share a picture to appease my curiosity. :)

    Older pic from few years back, built on a 70 series in 2011 to commemorate the 100 anniversary.

    Recently sold the following Spec Ops on this forum. It was a 2002 build.

    I have one of the new Colt S70 reproduction pistols. I have been thinking about sending it to Novak's for the Spec Ops package.

    Very nice. I know it's not at the same level but it reminds me of my WC Govt

    I have been there and had a tour. Interesting place. When I was there about 8-years ago, they were doing all the heavy lifting for the Gunsite Gunsmithy.

    Their guns look great and they have an excellent reputation. Wish they sold the Answer. I am one of those that think grip safeties are unnecessary.

    Is that an aftermarket safety on the first Novak?

    They’ll build you a gun with the Answer, but they don’t sell it as a part anymore.

    That is the Novak NXT thumb safety - fully machined. I think Brownell’s is the only source.
