If you wanted to send off a pile of parts to someone to build you a 1911 out of, who would you pick? If they have a website, post a link. So far I'm thinking the Gunsite custom shop.

Three of my four 1911's were built or customized by Ted Yost.
The fourth (LW CMDR) was customized by Brant Sabau at GG&G.

Two are my range/school house guns and two are my carry/IDPA guns (primary/spare concept). Only one pistol (my custom Caspian of course) had some "teething problems", but I got it worked out within the first 500rds.

Now all four go "bang on demand".

A true craftsman and artisan.

I wouldn't send Tim or any other good smith a "pile of parts". Most of them are pretty specific in which parts they prefer.

Ted Yost.

He made my 2nd custom Delta Elite, and it is just unreal. I had to shoot about 500 rounds through it to realize just how unreal it is. Neat guy to talk to, too.

Had a good experience with Dane Burns, I had to sell the Delta Elite he did for me for financial reasons. Only problem with Dane that I can think of is that is backlog is stretching into geological time lately.

I second this recommendation. Tim is the man when it comes to crafting steel into artwork that shoots like a son of a &^%$!
