I'm not familiar with his work, but I peeked at his website, and it looks nice. Looking forward to pics!

He was a 1911 pistol smith/builder at RRA, before going out on his own.
I HOPE to have it in hand Tuesday.

how quickly you guys for get...damn all that lead is soaking thru your skin.

Looks like the Miller is getting a face lift.
I sent it to a shop to get the sear looked at & rear sight replaced.
Decided to get the following done as well:

The mag well is coming off
Getting a S&A flat main spring housing, 20 LPI
Slide is getting a Novak cut for a "ledge" style 10-8 rear sight
All pins are being replaced
Slide stop pin will be flushed
Slide stop pin hole is getting chamfered
S&A .250" radius beaver tail is being fitted
Cylinder & Slide commander hammer
Cylinder & Slide ignition set
Frame & slide polish
Bead blast on frame & slide

Looks like the "retro" idea got left out in the cold, should be VERY cool!
Pics next week,.........hopefully.
