Once a while I read ppl's comments that they are going to have their 1911 bobtailed, who does this? and how much? I know what a bobtail is and i have shoot one before, what is the main purpose for it? is it meant to be easier to conceal? and can I have a para warthog bobtailed?

Smiths do it, or you can. The bobtails are like 70 bucks on midway.

Some people say it helps with how the recoil feels and getting rid of that point helps to keep the gun from "printing."

I had mine done by Chuck Rogers. Most reputable smiths can do it.
The bobtail is best for concealed carry because the part that prints isn't there.
I don't remember what size the warthog is, but only Govt. and commander frames can be bobbed. The bobtailed MSH uses an officers mainspring. And since there's nothing shorter than that, well, there ya go.

Also Fusion Firearms is currently selling there bobbed MSH's on ebay for $49.95 On their site, they're $69.95. And they're checkered. I'm going to get one for my Cbob.

Wow, can't believe that thing is 10+1 but I'd worry more about the magazine base pad printing than the MSH. I'm trying to get it done for my 5" government size.

Warthog can't be bobbed. 5" can be.
If you don't mind the wait, I'd recommend Dave Severns @ Severns Customs in Nevada.
