just curious what everyone has bought after seeing/talking to him.

He said that once I go with semi-custom 1911's, I'll never go back.
He was right, my previous "expensive" handguns were a TRP and EMP

my 1st high end (not really a semi) purchase since talking to bac1023 was a 2011, though he doesn't have one.

Then i was hooked. The next was a Wilson, which was too good of a deal to pass up.

Content for a while i was still lacking a Commander size. Got to fondle a KC, and ended up buying it

The rarity of the TGO1, qualitty of the Springfield Custom Shop and the deal i got at Bud's made me bring this home.

I'm already planning on having a 1911 built by Springfield's Custom Shop.

When I ordered mine, the turnaround time was only a month, which is amazing. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if it was longer now.

Those grips have the same traits as the Valor's, but Luke Volkmann will give you whatever grips you want. His 1911s are pretty much built to order.

I never felt a particular attraction to 1911's, although I always enjoyed Bac's collection when he posted pictures and comments. After collecting everything I thought I wanted, I started to appreciate the workmanship and beauty of 1911's a bit more and more, and last week decided to take the plunge.

This arrived the other day. It is a Ed Brown Executive Elite in the 5" government model. Bac, thanks for opening my eyes to this great, classic pistol. I'm already thinking about a commander size with a bobtail for CCW. :supergrin:

Ron, that's beautiful.

I'm glad you decided to get the Executive Elite. I've got the Classic Custom, which is pretty much the same pistol and love it.

I guess you need a Kobra Carry to go with it.

Here are my Ed Browns. :hearts:

Thanks Bac! They're beautiful! Could you tell me if the Custom has anything noteworthy that is mechanically different than the other models?

Also, what is your opinion of the Cobra's snakeskin as compared to the more traditional checkering? I think they have a third option on the Special Forces that is called "chainlink."

And as long as I'm asking questions... on take down, do you favor removing the slide stop pin first, or do you prefer removing the bushing first?

Thanks!

Ron,

Remove the bushing first. Its much easier to remove the pin with no tension in the spring.


I like the Kobra's snakeskin pattern.

The chainlink on then Special Forces is nice too. I have an STI Trojan with that pattern.

The Classic Custom has the mirror finish slide, oversize mag release, checkering on the back of the slide, two piece guide rod, target sights, etc. I also added an Ed Brown mag well when I ordered mine. Its Ed Brown's top of the line 1911. That said, quality of all Ed Browns is the same, it just comes down to features.

Here's another view of it. You can see the mirror blued slide. Its a very well done 1911.

Yes.

It did have a hiccup or two during the first 50 rounds, which isn't totally uncommon for 1911s as tight as Dan Wessons are. It been perfect though about 500 rounds now.

They do have a great record for reliability.

Since I CC mine sometimes the slimline grips work great as well. But I also want to get a new pair for just plinkin or even cc if I feel like it. I just cant decide on a pair that I think will look good or better than the stock ones. I've never had the opportunity to put on new ones tho either to test out.

Why do you think it's taking so long to finish it up.

Rinspeed, I'm honestly not sure. I think he's just overwhelmed with work.

There was a 5-6 month delay when they switched hard chrome venders, but the gun has been finished since early fall. I was then waiting for it to be reassembled and test fired.

Its been reassembled, as I got a nice pic of it that's going into a Guns & Ammo article.

http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n5/bac1023/Signature1-1.jpg


I'm just waiting for it to be fired, which I believe was done now. It should be shipping any day.

I guess two years isn't bad. Some of these custom guys are backed up 3 to 4 years and longer.

I found the Kobra when I was looking for Valors, when I was looking for CBOBs.

I'll be back in the 1911 game next month, but I've been very quiet lately as far as 1911 purchases.

Very cool.

Unfortunately, I won't buy a double stack and/or double action "1911", a small frame model, or any 1911 with a rail, so that does rule out quite a few for me and most of that list.

I will be getting a Desert Eagle, Guncrafter, and I may even eventually get a Loaded even though I'm not a big fan of them. I want a Pro first. :)

As far as a Rogers Precision is concerned, maybe one day, but if customs are going to be counted, you could list several dozen. :tongueout:

It is decent. Its just not as good as its competition from Kimber and S&W in my opinion.

Gotcha..Main reason I got mine was, (a) it was in the case at my lgs (b) I got a good price on it for living in the PRK (c) the owner of my lgs wont carry Kimber anymore (he says its due to their CS dept.) That being said my Kimber Ultra is my edc.. I have not had a single issue with it.. so I have yet to experience their CS.

Springfield does have better CS than Kimber, generally speaking.

I love my Springfield 1911s. I just feel Kimber has the edge in enhanced 1911s below $1000.

Thanks guys for the comments. I too am glad that one of our members bought it :supergrin:

Spending that much on a gun was not even on the radar. However, getting a dud SRP was unlikely, and the price point was hard to beat. I put 250 rounds through it on Friday. It was my 2nd range trip of the day, so I only stayed fresh for about 30 minutes. During that time I felt like I was shooting laser beams. The accuracy of this pistol is ridiculous. Now if the shooter was a little more consistent...

The SRP is exactly how everyone has described - a shooter's shooter. It's a no frills working gun. The checkering really grabs your hand, similar to my old TRP, but a little kinder. Even the trigger is a little grippier than I've experienced on others.

A sincere thank you, Brian. You know it's good when even my wife approves :wavey:

Seriously, I think Baer may be the best built of the big five semi custom players, with Springfield Custom a very close second. I'm not saying they're as refined, but from a sheer build quality standpoint, they're hard to beat.

How about an Infinity for something extra special befitting a 40 B-Day? :supergrin:

Brandon Strayer is a great guy to do business with. Though being a ground up custom built to your specs, lead times are longer than an Ed Brown.

Quack, with your knowledge, you would have an absolute BLAST with Infinity's Gunbuilder. :banana: You should try getting drawing one up and getting a quote for later reference, if nothing else. These guys build one hell of a 1911.

yea, after seeing bac's posts and his pics, those are the two i narrowed it down to... A TRP and Valor are on my list of guns to get (somewhat affordable). I still want a nighthawk custom also, but at 3k for 1, it'll be on hold for a SPECIAL occasion...

I think if it were full size I would already have bought the Valor, but it's the 4.25 inch commander size.

Actually no, I had talked to Brian offline a bit about the ProCarry a while back since he carries a 4" Kimber. If I had gotten the STI, I would have blamed Quack. :rofl:

The CBOB was alllllllllll Quack's fault.

I'm 42 and I feel old every morning when I get out of bed.

I'm 42 and I feel old every morning when I get out of bed.

I just turned 38 a few weeks ago. Started vigorously working out last year and thanks to 3x a week at the gym and little changes to my diet, I'm in the best shape of my life.

Take Dan Wesson out of there. Good guns, but not in the same league with the others in my opinion. Insert Springfield Custom in its place. :)

Brian has done it to me once again. After posting the pics of his new ATI FX 45 MILITARY 1911, I too have decided to buy one as well. And get this, from the same dealer he bought his from. The Man hooked me up. Then, after talking with Brian last night, I was forced to buy another 1911 from the same dealer. I am also getting the Desert Eagle 1911 at a good price. Pistols will ship around the end of the week, so pics will be up about the middle of next week. Thanks again Brian. :supergrin:

James, don't mention it, my friend. I'm happy they could hook you up.

I'm sure they can hook you up with a couple more down the road as well. :)



I have to get a range report up, but you'll love the Desert Eagle 1911. I haven't shot the ATI yet, so I can't comment. Its a solid gun though.

I'm looking forward to seeing both of them in the red wood chips. :wavey:

Mine was unfired and complete with everything, but I did pay a bit more, IIRC.

I'm amazed that you found one at a show. I've been to dozens of shows here in PA and don't recall ever seeing one.

Gary, I've had mine for so long, that I forget what all came with it.

I do know its a Storm hard case. I'll try to take a pic of everything tomorrow and post it.

BTW, I've seen all sorts of crazy stuff at shows, but never a Unertl. :)

I don't currently own a 1911. I did babysit one for a friend while he was doing a tour in Iraq. It was a Kimber Custom II. I took it to the range a few times but I was not able to shoot it as well as most of my other sidearms. I am sure that the inaccuracies were entirely my fault since others who have shot this gun remarked on how deadly accurate it was.
Anyway, since my experiences with the Kimber were unremarkable, I will probably not be seeking to add a 1911 to my stable anytime soon (I have a list a mile long of guns I want to add to my accumulation), however, I do feel that my collection will not be complete without at least one 1911.
