  2. I wish Unertl still built 1911s. They were awesome. :cool:

  3. Not an issue for me, I won't have an ambi safety on a pistol I carry. In any event, if you order custom built they will put on whatever safety you want. At that price point, I'm not going into a LGS and buying one off the shelf.
     
  4. I'm eluding to an example of their mentality. Why put a sub-par ambi on a $2500+ 1911? Why pay that much for a Remsport frame and slide with shyty checking, sometimes with no undercut? What parts do they honestly make? Sorry they just don't measure up for the price they want. Nice guns...... but for the money you might aswell be lookng at a DW.

    When the competition is making their own stuff and charging the same amount it's a no brainer.
     
  5. You bring up some good points, MD. Both my Nighthawks were built years ago. They both have ambi safeties, but strangely, only one uses the Kimber version.

    :agree:
     
  7. They definately don't put finish as their biggest priority, but more important for me is that the build quality is there, and they're hundreds of dollars cheaper than everyone else on the list.


    I need to get my hands on a No Name. :cool:

    You do have a very valid point.

  12. Jeez, talk about peer pressure.

    I find it intersting what has changed on this list. ~10 years ago it was pretty solidly Wilson, Baer, Brown. Springfield Custom Shop and Guncrafter Industries are now on everybody's list who owns one.

    You know I HAD to do it. :embarassed:
     
  16. :rofl: I guess I've dished out my fair share of peer pressure too.
     
  17. I agree. My experience is LB bluing is just adequate. My PII after 2000 rounds still requires a bushing wrench and the slide release still a PITA.
     
  18. Yes you have.

    ... and what goes around comes around, my friend. ;)



    :rofl:
     
  19. You have to go with stainless or hard chrome when buying a Baer, in my opinion.
     
  20. It's crazy that a 1911 builder actually builds them to be shot. Weird.
