Hey guys, if TALO or company similar decided to do a 1911 gunsmith edition. What would be your choice??? Something along the lines of the Wiley Clapp, but one of our here 1911 smiths were in charge, and they could spec out the gun however they wanted tol, to give the most useful features for the money? I think this woulod be the most interesting series of guns yet. I personally would like to see a Pete Single edition.Pete has the machine skills for sure, and he also know what maks a tasteful 1911 to boot. I have one of his us and the reliability is amazing. LINES ARE ALL STRAIGHT and it is everything I hoped it would be!You cant just purchase one of his custom guns, but this would give a lot of people a chance to experience his work! That's my 2 centson what would make a killer Talo special eition gun that would sell as fast as they could make them!!!
Anybody else have ideas on wat would make a a killer collectible Gunsmith Gun offered to the public By Talo? or another competitor???

They could do something cool like a fairly plain Jane 1911 but with really tight fit on the slide and frame a flush extractor counter sunk holes and a flush cut slide stop. A truly sulked in trigger with no mom parts anywhere. A hand fitted barrel would be nice. I think it would be cool to see profane sights. Like a Novak adjustable rear that had a detachable top half so you could select night sights or plain dots and that way when the tritium runs out you could replace just the top half. A front sight that had replaceable inserts so you could go from large gold to tritium in the same way. I am just spot balling but that's something a company like Smith and Wesson could actually do in a Talo edition and I have always wondered why there isn't a sight system like that for the 1911.
I like your ideas with the sight system!
