Wink Will's Gunsmithing 1911A1 Mil Spec (UPDATE)

Will did it again! Turn around time on the Deluxe install & blend of the S&A magwell was less than 30 days. The 1st picture is of the work I had completed a few months back. I cannot say enough about his work and attention to detail. Master Gunsmith! The magwell still needs to be finished. (Blued)

Springfield Armory Mil Spec 1911-A1
STI Long Trigger - 3.5 lbs
Commander Hammer
Match Sear
Match Sear Spring
Main Spring
Smith & Alexander Grip Safety
Novak Sights ( 2 dot rear & 1 front)
Smith & Alexander Magwell (Deluxe install & blend)
Finish: Black Oxide (Satin Finish)

wow, that looks AWESOME.

love the no-FCS look. the SA milspec is a great blank slate to build custom guns off of.

did he do any accurizing/reliability work?

I really love the look as well. thanks! No he didn't do any accurizing/reliability work. I need to save more money for that.

Wow. Just completely convinced me this will be my first purchase. What would be a good price for a new one?

I put about $1,000 bucks into the work so far on this one! I already had the Mil Spec. Will's work is far better than any custom shop gun I own. Just my opinion of course.

Beautiful!

I'm patiently awaiting a phone call from Will to have me drop off my pistol.

I just dropped the 1911 back off at Will's, he's doing some shake & bake on the slide stop and thumb safety (red tint). He also is installing a Smith & Alexander Magwell w/ blending. Will update with pics.

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!

Did you have to buy the parts and he just installed them?? I'm looking to have some work done. He did a great job on your gun and the other guns I've seen him work on.

I told him what I wanted and Will ordered the parts for me. I highly recommend Will O'Hara to anyone looking to have some work done to their 1911!!

Another recommendation for Will. The guy is an artist with a 1911. I have two guns with him now getting some work done.

For the work I had done about 3 months, which is very reasonable considering his craftsmanship and demand!

I believe Will is not accepting any new work currently, but I will send you a PM with his phone number.
