Because it's the 5% you pay for on a custom pistol. Do you think when a custom smith sells you a $5k pistol it's going to be loose and rattle when you shake it? No sir. It's the feel, the details, the quality you get...
Yes, and he will smile when he makes his Lexus payment with your money. :ROFLMAO: ;)

Why? Perhaps personal pride after a job well done and significant improvement over the factory work??
It's your money, but an honest 'smith would tell you like this:

Larry Vickers said the slide fit really doesn't have that much to do with accuracy, but shooters have the impression that slide to frame fit is important, mainly because it's something that can easily be checked by a nimrod. "It's something the average guy can check, so he thinks it's important, but it's really not."

Too much mythology surrounds the 1911 and it's far more difficult to make people "unlearn" the BS they have been fed/read over the years.

I see nothing wrong for people who have the capability of doing this correctly FOR THEMSELVES. However, for those who cannot by the time you ship the gun to & fro a gunsmith you'll be looking at circa $200 total (work & shipping) cost if not a bit more. Your money, your choice.
