View Full Version : 1911 Front dovetail cut - CA smith??

09-24-2011, 7:04 PM
Ive seen a couple websites of CA based smiths that do 1911 work but none say if they can do any machine work.

Does anyone have or know a shop in CA that I can send my slide to to have the front cut for a dovetail sight?

There are quite a few out of state shops but I reckon their lead time will be slow at least I can cut that time down by sending it local.

Jim Hoag silver solders - which is actually very rare.

DMW, Tanaka, and Ohara all cut dovetails in the front. Dave at DMW is very reasonably priced and a super cool guy.

Will Ohara is a nationally known 1911 gunsmith and he is right in Corona, PM me if you want his phone number...
