Default 1911 Custom

Ok Beetle, I agree with you and would like to get a 1911 Repro like you did and have it customized. Please, could you tell me how I might find the base model you started with? Thanks

Where's the "Like" button? I keep wanting to press it when I see each picture!

It looks just plain beastly and the extra heft up front does help manage recoil a bit better. Plus, an angel told me that when God called JMB to heaven it was to build him a full rail 1911!

I'm with this guy, haha.

Hopefully I don't get the same 1911 bug you have when I picked up your Springfield. Thanks again for the great deal.

Here's my reason I can't pick up another hobby, for context. Maybe we can meet up at the Los Altos range sometime when it's warmer and I'll bring it out and can trade you a ride for a chance to try one of your glass triggers.



Cheers,
Jason

^^^ That is one bad a** looking ride Jason! Nice meeting you -- enjoy your new toys!

patronus, I sent you a PM with some starting points on looking for a Colt base gun with classic rollmarks.

Everyone else, thanks again for the kind comments! Oh you want to hear something funny? If you read the first post I tell a story of how I doubted that the order at Wilson was ever even put in. Well I guess I should credit the store, they DID order it! Exactly one week after my Heirloom came in Wilson Combat tracked me down (because the store that ordered it is no longer in business). Guess what? My Wilson is complete after nearly a two year wait! The Wilson and Heirloom a similar in how I spec'd them... stay tuned this gun's brotha from another motha will be in my hands soon....

Thanks! By the summer it should put down a bit over 300hp at the wheels. At 1350lbs, it's pretty darn quick.

Couldn't see the pics at work. Firewall must have detected hardcore gun porn.

Sweet Mother of God that has to be the most beautiful 1911 on this earth!

I've probably looked at this thread 10 times already. I can't find one thing I'd do differently, it's perfect.

A lot of them are posted in my long running Rock Island Auction thread:

Occasionally I'll do a in-depth post about guns that are unusual or unique. They can be found here:

As always, thanks for the kind words and appreciation.

Outstanding. I was going to go the semi custom 1911 route till I decided to drop all my $ into a high end AR setup. One day I would love to get a real nice 1911 such as yours. She will be home on the range or in a case, enjoy it.

Yost is amazing. They are truly great people and honest artists. Congrats on the Heirloom. Love the see how a mere "Wilson" custom compares to a Yost. Love to hear how it they both shoot and the fit and finish.
