  1. I was thinking of getting a custom job by Garthwaite. Anybody have any opinion on his work?

    Jim Garthwaite enjoys a great reputation earned by year after year of great work.
    Have you checked out his web site? Good pictures!
    If you like his personal style, give him a call and discuss your budget and preferences. I hear he is very easy to talk to.
    :cool:

    I've never seen his work but as Chuck said he certainly has a great reputation.

    I love his style and he's a CCO man too. I'm in the process of nailing down a order for him now.

    I have seen his work (a CCO made before Colt ever did it by using the frame from an Officer's ACP and a Commander slide) and it is master-class work.

    Jim Gartwaithe did two Colt Gold Cup 1911s for me years ago. I carried them on the job for years. I never regretted paying to have the work done, just my stupidity at selling them. they don't make them like they used too!!!!
