    I noticed George has several Alchemy Custom Weaponry Prime models in stock now.

    I've never heard of them and don't see a lot about them on the forums.

    What are they all about? Any good?

    As close to a full custom fit and finish wise as you will get with a semi custom. Do a search on the owner you will find quite a bit of information. FYI he also runs the manufacturing operations for Cabot as well.

    This is likely going to cost me but who is George? I have been very interested in one of these

    I love the traditional look of bluing and walnut! Very nice. I always love Robs posts as well.

    I agree with Busa Dave:) I have a couple models and can say they are amazing. At least one more Prime will be added in the future. Here's #27.

    I think it is interesting he went with the 1911 frame's lack of trigger finger clearance scallops.

    I have a Brimstone, they are very nice guns. Fitting and finish work are superb.

    I'm hoping that Rob will make a 9mm or .38 Super Prime someday :)...

    I lust after the Primes every time one gets blued and assembled too. Just got a full Hard Chrome Prime Elite done for George this week. It's pretty stunning. Pics are on the Instagram feed.

    These guns are light years ahead of a Baer in terms of care taken to fit the parts and finish them properly.

    I get a lot of questions about how these guns differ from LBC. Here's a link to TOS that you can check out. I break things down. As everyone knows, I am not bashing Les or his product, just pointing out the difference. I have a great deal of respect for anyone that succeeds in this business. It's pretty dang difficult!

    Of the 1911's that I currently own, the Alchemy Custom Weaponry Prime is probably my favorite.

    For lack of a better description, it has an elegance that my other brands do not.
