Check out the Safari Arms with Caspian frame, now owned and marketed as Olympic Arms 1911. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=248952409 I had a chance to buy a lower Caspian with a Dela Elite upper and passed and now regret it. Loved the way it felt. I thinking about plans for a new carry gun in 45acp and was thinking about this one. Has some of what I want such as Commander size, bull barrel and no MIM parts. I like the naked slide as I don't want a billboard. Would like to change finish to Nitron, add tooled steel for control parts, some 20lpi checkering on MSH, Hennie or 10-8 tritium sights if I can, lined or scalloped top of slide and probably a few other things. I'd have to off something to get this, but I could carry for awhile till I saved up enough dough to send off for custom work. Probably your guys opinion of where to send would greatly influence my decision as there are no real 1911 smiths in my area. Anybody have any experience with these and possibly a line on getting one besides GunBroker?
