    brothers and sisters-- my gi nn cbob has finally been redeemed from layaway(and thanks to terry at pt partners down in tx for his patience while i raised the necessary funds). the craftsmanship appears to be everything that many on this forum have described. thanks to all for helping me make my 100 year anniversary decision. now, if between my job, my daughter's soccer, my son's baseball playoff schedule (i coach his team) and everything else life can throw at you, i could only get to the range........ regards-- deguelo

    Great choice

    The NN is one of the best 1911s on the market.








    Oh yeah...

    Very nice, congrats. I'm interested to see pictures like everyone else, but I'd also be interested in hearing comparisons to any other 1911s you have, particularly a solid entry level like a Kimber, but also an Ed Brown, Wilson, etc.

    I can tell you that its a better built gun than anything Brown makes and most Wilsons.

    ...just my opinion, of course. Ed Brown and Wilson both make fine 1911s, but I really like Guncrafter. :)

    +1.....and Kimber does not even belong in the same sentence with a Guncrafter unless it is saying something about a "night and day" difference.

    That goes without saying.
    I'm interested in hearing why. As in; "The trigger has less/smoother take up and break is a 1/10th of a pound and affirmative...the frame/slide is like X...and this is why I'd pay $2,500 more for this pistol"

    $2,500 more? You must be getting Kimbers for free. :)

    Better quality parts, better/tighter fitting of parts, nicer finish, better barrel, greater accuracy, etc...

    The list goes on and on.

    No.....Retail on the No Name is $2,500, so if there is a $2,500 difference, you are getting your Kimber for free, correct? In reality, there is less than a thousand dollars difference between most new Kimbers and a new No Name.

    So forgive my ignorance...but is the NN 1911's (besides the .50) just a parts gun fit by experts? Or do they make their own parts?

    That slide stop sure looks like Harrison's, so I was curious.

    to my knowledge, theyre just fitting parts. After owning a WC and NH, I actually prefer that! There are things that ive learned i like better, such as, wilson grip safety and thumb safety, but will never put a 2 piece magwell on a gun again!! I dont care for NH's BT, TS, or SS

    I wouldn't call it a "parts gun", per se. They do source some of the components for their pistols and spec others. They are a very small (ie. less than 5 people) company, so manufacturing their own components would be very difficult.

    Guncrafter is a very small company.
