brothers and sisters-- my gi nn cbob has finally been redeemed from layaway(and thanks to terry at pt partners down in tx for his patience while i raised the necessary funds). the craftsmanship appears to be everything that many on this forum have described. thanks to all for helping me make my 100 year anniversary decision. now, if between my job, my daughter's soccer, my son's baseball playoff schedule (i coach his team) and everything else life can throw at you, i could only get to the range........ regards-- deguelo

You did well......but must post some pictures when you get a break in your hectic schedule. You will love the Guncrafter No Name!!

Great choice

The NN is one of the best 1911s on the market.








Oh yeah...

Cngrats.

It sounds like an interesting build.

Very nice, congrats. I'm interested to see pictures like everyone else, but I'd also be interested in hearing comparisons to any other 1911s you have, particularly a solid entry level like a Kimber, but also an Ed Brown, Wilson, etc.

I can tell you that its a better built gun than anything Brown makes and most Wilsons.

...just my opinion, of course. Ed Brown and Wilson both make fine 1911s, but I really like Guncrafter. :)

+1.....and Kimber does not even belong in the same sentence with a Guncrafter unless it is saying something about a "night and day" difference.

That goes without saying.
I'm interested in hearing why. As in; "The trigger has less/smoother take up and break is a 1/10th of a pound and affirmative...the frame/slide is like X...and this is why I'd pay $2,500 more for this pistol"

$2,500 more? You must be getting Kimbers for free. :)

Better quality parts, better/tighter fitting of parts, nicer finish, better barrel, greater accuracy, etc...

The list goes on and on.

No.....Retail on the No Name is $2,500, so if there is a $2,500 difference, you are getting your Kimber for free, correct? In reality, there is less than a thousand dollars difference between most new Kimbers and a new No Name.

So forgive my ignorance...but is the NN 1911's (besides the .50) just a parts gun fit by experts? Or do they make their own parts?

That slide stop sure looks like Harrison's, so I was curious.

to my knowledge, theyre just fitting parts. After owning a WC and NH, I actually prefer that! There are things that ive learned i like better, such as, wilson grip safety and thumb safety, but will never put a 2 piece magwell on a gun again!! I dont care for NH's BT, TS, or SS

I wouldn't call it a "parts gun", per se. They do source some of the components for their pistols and spec others. They are a very small (ie. less than 5 people) company, so manufacturing their own components would be very difficult.

Guncrafter is a very small company.

The NN I posted pictures of is not the one the OP bought, but I am betting it looks really close, with a few exceptions like a solid trigger and different sights. :)

I share the same opinion.

Ditto.

the only thing more worthless than a post with no pics is a camera in my hands..........

thank you for your words of support and congratulation.

mine is a standard spec'd version-- melonite, shredder grips, solid trigger, straight eight night sights.

my 1911 "collection" includes but a dw valor, a sw gunsite commander, a lightly tuned colt series 80 currently wearing a marvel .22 upper, a dw cbob 10mm instainless..... but most interesting for purposes of comparison will be my nh custom talon II bobtail in hard chrome, which has been a spectacular performer.

thanks again to all. regards-- deguelo

You got to get a camera. :) You have great taste for sure. I've been wanting a Valor, own a Gunsite Baer Commander, own a customized Colt Commander series 80 and want a 1911 in 10mm, but at least own a couple of Glock 10mm's and have a NH Predator II bobtail in hardchrome on order. :thumbsup:

Congrats! I love the NN and I love the "obscurity" of the NN - which wont last long. If Alex has a good business plan, he will grow very quickly in this market. I am just happy to see a NN bought through another distributor then our DRC. It indicates real good things for GCI (as much as I would like to see Dave dominate the market)

As a very proud owner of a NN myself, I say congrats on the best 1911 out there in MY OPINION. Alex is one of the best in the game when it comes to 1911.
