I just purchased a custom 1911 built on a Caspian frame and I would like to have it checked out by an experienced 1911 armorer here in Nor Cal. I would prefer to find someone who doesn't mind if I watch and ask a few questions as they inspect the pistol. I live in the Oakley/Antioch area, but go to the east bay and also Sacramento quite a bit. I'd appreciate it if someone could suggest a good place to take it. Thanks.

Diablo Valley Gun Works in Pleasant Hill has 4 smiths on staff. Not sure if any are necessarily 1911 specialists, but it would be worth calling them. 925.798.7522.
