Default 1911 custom gunsmiths

Looking for recommendations for gunsmiths (in or out of state) to accurize a current production Colt 1911.

Cifaldi on this board does custom work on 1911's. Judge by the picture it appears he does some real nice work.

My John Jardine pistol shoots on the think system. I think about the target and it hits it. No aiming required.

Beyond outstanding and then some.

The absolute best 1911 gunsmith out here is Will O’Hara, hands down. He’s in Corona.
