    Thanks, its by far the finest 1911 Ive fired and Ted was abosutely phenomenal to work with. This is the second pistol from him the first being a Hi Power from his days with Heirloom Precision and its my favorite 9mm pistol.

    Outstanding.... if I may ask a couple questions.

    Did you find a stock 70 series and send it to him..?

    What kind of wait...?

    I’ve owned 1911s my whole life and routinely shoot and compete with them. I’ve been a police officer in a large city for 22+ years. I’m hoping that I’ll do another 10 years before I retire and I’d love to have a special gun built for the occasion. I was looking into Heirloom since their builds are the classic lines I enjoy.

    Yes I had a stock series 70 and sent it to him. Most gun smiths will not work on guns that have previously been worked on.

    The wait was over a year lol to be honest I dont exactly remember when I sent it off but his quoted time was very accurate and it would be best to contact him regarding lead time.

    Ted Yost is no longer with Heirloom Precision who is solely ran by Jason Burton who is phenomenal as well. In my opinion the top smiths would be Yost and Burton as they build guns to my liking and they just flat out work. I dont own safe queens this gun is now my carry gun and rides in a 5 Shot Leather holster daily. Anyway you cannot go wrong with either smith Jason Burton at Heirloom Precision or Ted Yost at Estate Sporting.

    Do it, I sold off some of the herd to fund the build. Totally worth it!
