Hilton just posted this on his FB page.

The work looks amazing but no double stack 1911s for me. I just don't like they way they feel in my hands.

Got a link? That's a pretty sweet looking build, just curious what he wants for it.

But my money would be on Hilton's gun running much better and for much longer. I respect his theory on 1911 durability and reliability and would love to have a gun built by him one day. Please don't take my remars as a knock on the Infinity, I would just prefer and have greater faith in one of Hilton's guns. I know Infinity makes fine 1911's. That being said, I would never own a high cap 1911 for anything other than gaming.

The fact that he said it's the only hi-cap gun he's ever built and said that he would buy it back should tell you something.

What's up with the trigger guard? It looks like plastic, and has a seam too.

It is polymer.

It has a modular frame.

I don't know. I'd put Infinity up against anybody.

I think they make the best double stacks in the world.

Infinity makes really nice guns, but I'd take a Yam built custom over one any day of the week. There's a lot of detail in that gun for a doublestack.

I'm no 1911 expert, but I've seen GT'ers do a better job stippling at home. I don't like that gun one bit.

No doubt they make good double stacks. The problem is, I am not a big "gamer," and I don't think a double stack 1911 in any form is a suitable hard use duty gun. The magazines tend to be less than durable when subjected to hard use environments and overall require more upkeep than a single stack traditional design.

Have you seen an STI or SV wide body magazine?? While they sometimes require tuning at first, they are much thicker than most any other magazine material and are plenty durable. As well, I have (real) Caspian magazines that have been dropped on concrete hundreds of time and still run like new.

Do you hear the register ringing every time you drop one? They're not cheap after being tuned. :cool:

No argument there. They are ridiculously overpriced, regardless of tuning. SV / Infinity is asking $100+ each if you buy direct from them. :shocked:

First off I love the term "hard use duty gun". I don't know to many duty guns that are subject to the kind of torture that competition guns are. I have an Infinity that was built in 2005 that has almost 100,000rnd through it. I agree with Bac on this one. Don't bet on Hiltons gun running longer or more reliable.
Also Don't bet on Hilton's gun having more detail. 3,800 for this used double stack is a bit over priced. The fact that he built only one makes it rare I guess but big deal. If I am going to spend that kind of money I am going to a guy that builds double stack guns. Infinity,Brazos,Gans or Matt Cheely make way more sense.

Well, you clearly don't understand the term, and I don't wish to argue. Even if I had the money I wouldn't buy the Hilton double stack as I don't trust them for duty. There is a world of difference between a game gun and a work gun. I most likely would not choose a 1911 as my duty gun. Yes I said it, I am quite happy with my glock as my duty weapon. I love the 1911, but I am also aware that for general issue there may be better choices in this day and age. As I clearly pointed out earlier, I was in no way knocking Infinity but as always (and I am guilty of the same) people overlook the entire post and focus on what does not jive with their personal likes or dis-likes.

Of course this forum weighs heavily on looks instead of actual shooting so the comments are expected.

If one understands what they are looking at they will see the attention to detail relative to a lot of production double stacks. Yam isn't my favorite but he knows quite a bit about 1911s and has contributed FAR more than anyone here to what is and what isn't a reliable 1911. Competition guns are run hard but there are some duty guns out there that are run hard aswell. In fact I think Yam puts his fair share downrange relative to others. I will always favor reliability with one acredited smith opposed to a "shop." Some are not beyond reproach, I've seen Brazos screw a gun before, of course they handled it quickly.
